Hello, long time no see!

I was busy with real life stuff these past months, but hopefully I am back now! And boy, was this real life stuff important! 

First of all, I have succesfully finished high school! :dance: You may remember that a long, long time ago in one of my journals I mentioned the final exams we take at the end of the senior year in May. Mine were from Czech language and literature, Biology, English history and literature and from Russian, and I managed to complete all of them with As and Bs, which meant passing with honours. It made me incredibly happy, especially since I was terrified of picking the wrong question I didn't know the answer to and failing. But it all turned out well, in the end! Much partying and celebrating ensued. 

Then came the second most important thing - I had to get into university. I wasn't that worried about it at first, probably because I was still exited about having finished high school, but when I was actually about to take the first entrance exam, I became a bit nervous. I sent in four applications - three of them for the biggest and oldest of Czech universities, the Charles University in Prague, and the last one for the Czech University of Agriculture. The fields I applied for were Physiotherapy, Biology, Enviromental and evolutional biology and Zootherapy, and I had to take entrance exams for all of them in a range of about two weeks this month, and then had to wait for the results for a couple of days.
As I said, taking the exams was unnerving, but the wait was much, much worse. I found out early on that I hadn't made the Physiotherapy exams, and after that I kind of became worried that I was doomed to fail the rest as well. Then at last, about a week ago, I finally got the rest of the results, and was relieved to learn that I have been admitted to the Faculty of Science in the Charles University to study both of the biology fields I applied for. I have to chose only one, so I will probably go with Biology, since it is less specialised, and thus has wider range of use. I can choose specialization later with my Masters, but that is far away in the distant future right now. First I have to manage not to get kicked out right in my first year.

And the last thing - I am leaving to Germany again at the beginning of July, and will be staying there for something over two weeks. I would like to visit some zoos again after that, especially since I have extra long holidays because of the uni, but I don't know if I will be able to rope anyone into coming with me, since I find going alone boring. We'll see.

That's it for now, I hope your year was as succesfull as mine, and that you will enjoy your holidays to the fullest! :wave:

Hey there! As you probably noticed, I am a big photography lover, and I like to spend my free time with a camera in my hand. And if the camera is pointed at some fluffy, feathered or scaled living thing, it is even better!
Besides photography, I also greatly enjoy art, languages, history, geography and, of course, biology.

I've been taking pictures for nearly five years, but I still have a lot to learn and perfect. I use Canon 500D for taking almost all my photos, and Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop Elements for post-processing.

Very well, then. Now that I've properly introduced myself, you can proceed to browse through my gallery - I hope you will like it!

Hi, I've used the photograph of your Bee eater as a reference for a drawing over here…

Thanks ever so much
