Alice and the blue cups of love

Hello Elizabeth!Hello Marie, Ann and Bev, Hello My Lovelies!

My daughter had good marks in our National High School Exam which is an admission test for enrollment in 23 federal universities. Our federal universities are free. You don't have to pay to study and they are the best ones here.

 The exam she took is composed of 180 multiple-choice questions, equally divided into four areas of knowledge:  languages, codes and related technologies (plus a written essay); human sciences and related technologies; natural sciences and related technologies; and mathematics and its technologies. Due to the length of the test, it is applied in two consecutive days, the first lasting 270 minutes, and the second lasting 330.  

But a good mark doesn't mean my girl succeeded. Let me clarify:  she scored  594,17 but if the average for the course she wants is 620,18, she will be eliminated. Tomorrow,  we will know the score for History which is what she wants to study at university. The last result will be  given after January 22nd.

As you can see I drew Alice and she fits perfectly in T stands for Tuesday. Three Muses challenged us to create something about Alice since it is the 150th anniversary of the publication of ALICE IN WONDERLAND so here it is:

I have some photos to show you from a short trip we made to an island last Tuesday. The island is an auto-free zone, so travel is limited to bicycles and horse-drawn carriages.

  7. Tell your daughter we are all pulling for her. She has done her part, now it's up to the Unis to do theirs.

    I saw Alice in Wonderland for the first time a few nights ago. Never had seen OR read it before. You did a marvelous job with Alice and the cups. I can just imagine the Cheshire Cat hiding behind one of them.

    I was very impressed by the photo of Rio from the ferry. I have been making art in my 7 Continents AB and will eventually get to Brazil. Right now, I'm still in Argentina. I look forward to visiting your city in my art.

    Speaking of art, your daughter takes wonderful photos. I was super impressed with the composition of her work.

    Thanks for sharing both Alice and your day trip with us for T this Tuesday.

  8. Your Alice journal spread is just darling!! What a beautiful island to visit-I love that there are no cars too.
