I have a hard enough time getting up for work, I don't start till 8:30, I try and get up by 7:30.

Hi AMENDMENT....

and which sadistic bastard came up with this 12kb limit on avatars?! 12kb is NOTHING!!! I'm sure I've seen some of those animated ones that must be bigger than that....

Sorry Daniel, I don't think I'm smart enough to shrink it to 12kb and still make it remotely recognisable.

8am lectures were bad enough. Someone talked about 7am lectures once, but the lecturers drew the line there. Thank god!!

Thats completely fine! Thanks for trying at least anyways.

I reckon a better pic might surface in the near future.

Wow, you're up early. Either that, or I really haven't been in high school for FAR too long.
For the last year of high school, I actually got up at 6am. And hung around on the Internet for 1.5 hours before actually getting ready to leave at 7:50am. My school was a private one, it started early at 8:30am. Wasn't such a bad thing, though, because it meant our holidays were longer, and frankly I'd prefer that.

Due to a scheduling anomaly, my Maths C class (that is, the highest level of maths in QLD) wasn't on a usual line. We only had two regular Maths C lessons in school time. This became unworkable and they introduced a third class before school, beginning at 7:30am. It had to be abandoned when nobody turned up because it was just too ridiculously early. Two sessions at 8am proved more popular. Especially with me, because I arrived at 8am anyway, to hang out in the library normally.

Damn, that's like me. Got up at 6.30am, was in school by 8 (despite school starting at 8.55), but usually to hang out and talk with mates rather than read. Occasionally finish off homework :P.

I don't have anything earlier than midday this semester.

... though it means I have to catch evening peak hour trams three days a week, and those suck on many different levels. I'm sure Phail Collins rides those trams.

When I used to take the bus, I had to get up around 10 of 6 to catch it at 10 of 7. Now that I drive, I leave around 7:10-7:15.

Which means, I'm out, I'll see everyone later. Have a good one.

I'm pretty sure he drives them, too. Ever heard those tram drivers? "NEK THOP EBURN METRA STAY ON" (next stop melbourne central station)

Oh, my group hung out in the library. One end was "our" area. We'd sit on the computers or read the paper or banter or whatever.

Also, one incentive for me to get there early was that if we left on or before 7:50am, I'd get there at 8am, but if we left any later, I'd struggle to get there by 8:30am because traffic would just appear out of nowhere.

Cool group!

Also, I hate it how that happens. You leave two minutes late, and suddenly all these middle-aged people what can't drive sending their kids to school appear out of nowhere.

It's even worse around the private schools - the cars, egos and people get larger and driving ability goes to hell on an express elevator.
