Merry Christmas, faithful blog readers and casual observers alike! Although we annoyingly have one and half days of school left, I think I’m just going to pretend the holidays have started because I feel in a Christmassy mood today. Not only did we buy our traditional family Christmas tree (decorations come tomorrow) but I also posted my Christmas cards to those living far-far-away.
This evening I was at Holly’s birthday ‘gathering’ (we she eventually decided on calling it) which was lovely – especially because I hadn’t seen the Triple H Gang together for ages (Holly, Hanan and Holly, for those wondering ) and also because we all ended up chilling out in Holly’s bedroom leading to numerous “oh wow.. we’re in Holly Walker’s bedroom, how strange!” comments as we discussed how we all hated one another at some point in our school lives.
It’s interesting – last night I ended up reading ‘How the Public School System Crushes Souls‘ after clicking on some of Traff’s del.icio.us links (ta Alex) which supports what no doubt is our uber-stereotypical view of American High Schools as fairly chilling places. (If you’re reading, Alex Newman, feel free to demolish this idea!) But then again, Mr X this evening found it astonishing that my A-Level classes are filled with people who actually are interested in the subject and want to talk about it. Y’know, cause chatting is better than doing work anyway Sure, we haven’t always been so friendly (see above) but by 17\18 you’d hope people would be. And ach – I’m going to miss everyone at the end of it.
Oh, and check the extravagant Christmas blog decorations
I agree with a lot of those points, though not all. But I’m not in a usual public school, so I probably have a different experience from most people. The "Junior High Computer Class Failure" part happens a lot; teachers will tell you to do something you’ve done before, and if you protest, all that happens is they don’t like you. The "The Intergenerational Code of Silence" is also very true.
Ah my fantastic santa hat banner is back. Hurrah!
Thank you for my lovely christmas card Dom I wish i was organised and had actually sent some, but oh well. Such is life. Have a good christmas!
