LoL! And I'll be correcting homework. Ugh
Tad unlucky. What do you teach?? And at which school? And also, there's the quote button on the bottom right of each post, just so you don't have to keep copying and pasting and so on.

I'm cool with that, especially if it saves more planning time

Unless things have moved around since 2003, the Melbourne IMAX is at the new Museum... I can't remember the name of the area it's in, maybe Carlton? Anyway, I saw lots of trams nearby when I was there last, so you should be okay in that respect.

The first day it's released is April the 10th, which is a Thursday... I'm going to email the IMAX people and ask them about session times etc, I don't think they were on the website yet.
With any luck they'll get back to me before the tickets go on sale... and I suppose we shouldn't rule out the possibility that something will go haywire and it'll all be put off for six months.

IMAX is just where the University hold their exams, Ax - on Nicholson St if i recall correctly. Just a couple minutes walk from Parliament station.

Oh, that's where the Imax is? Well, that's convenient then! I've actually never been there for exams though - my vision means I get special conditions, so I sit my exams on campus.

Hahaha! Thanks so much for that! I feel like such a doofus.


Yeah... I teach... lol! First year out of uni... so I'm basically learning everything as I go along!!

I teach at a school in the south-eastern suburbs... won't say where incase students lurk on this sight (highly unlikely... but still)! It's funny, as it's the last thing I thought I'd end up doing...

So far the year has consisted of "Miss... are you, like, really a teacher? You look too young to be a teacher"...

Great idea, Alisaura - thank-you!

Early afternoon sounds good to me at this stage.

Psh, don't feel bad. In my early days here, I didn't use the Quote feature either - and not because I didn't know about it either! I did. I was just used to the copy-and-paste method from my previous Internet home and didn't want to change. I still view threads with 10 rather than 15 posts, a holdover from that place.

Well, good on you for doing it! I applaud you.

Many of my friends and family are or have been teachers, so I know what it's all about. The people I respect most in this world are teachers and those in the medical profession. If you're not healthy and you don't have a good education, then to put it bluntly, you're pretty much fucked. Anything an aspiring historian such as myself can offer is merely a non-essential bonus. I don't know where we'd be without you teachers, and I will never understand the apparent lack of respect and comparatively poor pay given to those in education.

Lol! Thanks! I feel a little better...

Thanks heaps, Ax! It means alot, especially after a hard day! (I love my classes, but sometimes it gets tough)...

It's fantastic that you're an inspiring historian. I don't believe that "anything you can offer" is a non-essential bonus though! Historians have an incredibly important impact upon the way in which events are interpreted - and provide students with the opportunity to realise that there is never any one point of view to anything. This is, perhaps, one of the most essential skills they will come away with from school.. thus without the historians, history teachers couldn't really teach!

Sorry if this post doesn't make any sense... I'm incredibly tired and my brain is turning to mush! lol!

Hmm. Is 1pm a good time? That suits me well. Do we have enough of us to make this work?

... wow, somebody who takes historians seriously. That's new. My father seems more impressed with the fact I'll one day have a PhD than with what I'm actually doing, and most people ask me "... why?", especially when they learn my primary field of interest is New Zealand history. I try to point out that we all live in the context of our history and it shapes the present so we damn well better understand what happens, but it seems to go in one ear and out the other for some people.

Sorry Ax, but I just had to point out that you're studying to be a historian of New Zealand history - in Australia.
