Some advice for this Exam time…

11 May

It’s nearly common practise that my blog posting rises during the months of May/June, mostly due to Study Leave and procrastination. However, i’m nipping it in the bud early this year and saying that this will be my last post for a while, so I thought i’d leave on a light note.

Doing my A-Levels this year, i’ve had only brief experience in exams, however, I recently found an article that will hopefully cheer you all up during this pretty stressful time and give you some advice too!

So here it is, my top things to do during one of your exams this year:

1. Bring pets.

2. Bring cheerleaders.

3. Bring a pillow. Fall asleep (or pretend to) until the last 15 minutes. Wake up, say “oh man, better get cracking” and do some gibberish work. Turn it in a few minutes early.

4. Get a copy of the exam, run out screaming “Andre, Andre, I’ve got the secret documents!!”

5. Make paper airplanes out of the exam. Aim them at the instructor’s left nostril.Run into the exam room looking about frantically. Breathe a sigh of relief. Go to the instructor, say “They’ve found me, I have to leave the country” and run off.

6. Fifteen minutes into the exam, stand up, rip up all the papers into very small pieces, throw them into the air and yell out “Merry Christmas.” If you’re really daring, ask for another copy of the exam. Say you lost the first one. Repeat this process every fifteen minutes.

7. Do the exam with crayons, paint, or fluorescent markers.

8. Come into the exam wearing flip flops and nothing else.

9. Bring things to throw at the instructor when s/he’s not looking. Blame it on the person nearest to you.

10. As soon as the instructor hands you the exam, eat it.

11. Every five minutes, stand up, collect all your things, move to another seat, continue with the exam.

12. Turn in the exam approximately 30 minutes into it. As you walk out, start commenting on how easy it was.

13. Bring a black marker. Return the exam with all questions and answers completely blacked out.

14. Bring a water pistol with you. Nuff said.

15. Start a brawl in the middle of the exam.

16. Come in wearing a full knight’s outfit, complete with sword and shield.

17. Bring a friend to give you a back massage the entire way through the exam. Insist this person is needed, because you have bad circulation.

18. When you walk in, complain about the heat. Strip.

He must have done number 18?!

19. After you get the exam, call the instructor over, point to any question, ask for the answer. Try to work it out of him/her.

20. Bring balloons, blow them up, start throwing them around like they do before concerts start.

21. Complete the exam with everything you write being backwards at a 90 degree angle.

22. Address the professor as “your excellency”.

23. When the professor turns on his laser pointer, scream “AAAGH! MY EYES!”

24. Sit in the front, sniff suspiciously, and ask the professor if he’s been drinking.

25. Get deliveries of candy, flowers, balloons, telegrams, etc… sent to you every few minutes throughout the exam.During the exam, take apart everything around you. Desks, chairs, anything you can reach.

26. Play frisbee with a friend at the other side of the room.

So there you have it, Another King wishes you all the best with your studying over the next few weeks. May we remember the words of a recent Messenger article:

  • Be thankful for the great education we recieve and use it wisely.
  • Be a witness to others by our hard work, and
  • Work wholeheartedly for the Lord.

Colossians 3:17, 23+24   “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”

N.B Another King does not take responsibilty of any actions performed by readers wishing to carrying out advice that is mentioned in this post…

It’s always nice when Britain displays such good manners on the world stage however the rude MEP Nigel Farage does ask a legitimate question. Just a pity he didn’t try to start chanting it afterwards.

Courtship and Christian Music

These were on Josh Harris‘ blog (which possibly makes the first one even funnier) and I found them pretty amusing.  He did encounter the usual problem of people taking themselves too seriously after posting the Christian music cartoon so just to clarify I’m not trying to re-open a can of worms!

“Seeing Glory Changes Everything”

9 Nov

It is crucial to understand what preaching is as this changes how we listen, respond and apply the message. It will help us identify what we really need to hear and what deserves to be described as good preaching. It will change our thoughts from “How did the message make me feel?” to “How was I shown God from the Word  in the message?”, looking not for a gifted orator but for the King of Glory. Don’t settle for little stories or the thoughts of a man (even if it’s compatible with the Bible’s teaching) as they are not the life-changing Word of God. A correct understanding helps us long for God’s Word to be explained and God to be exalted for that is what brings glory to God and gives us oppertunity to enjoy Him.

Here’s a couple of videos and a short audio clip from Pastor John Piper explaining what comprises real, Biblical preaching .

What is Preaching?

“The preacher’s job is to minimize his own opinions and deliver the truth of God. Every sermon should explain the Bible and then apply it to people’s lives…Preaching is also exultation. This means that the preacher does not just explain what’s in the Bible, and the people do not simply try understand what he explains. Rather, the preacher and the people exult over what is in the Bible as it is being explained and applied.”

What is the place of practical application in preaching?

“Wonder changes people not examples” (HT: SWS – before it lost its way!)

What Bible passages do you use to base your claims about how we should preach?

“This is not a game. This is really serious. We’re not just telling little stories. I’m not sharing my wisdom or my sense of humour”
