Wow, Indonesian? That would've been interesting. All I ever had offered was Japanese and German. All I wanted to do was French and Latin! One of the maths teachers actually was qualified to teach French but the school only wanted him to teach maths.

Oh, and of course I did Maori in primary school in New Zealand. Wish I'd learnt more of that, really.

Actually, I probably should do some dishes soon. Or clean up the lounge. It's a bit messier than I'd really like.

Truth be told, I should mop the floor in the kitchen, but FUCK OFF. I did that far too recently for that to reasonably need to be done again. I fucking hate lino.

He said he was tempted to write our essays for us - he only had to submit five for external verification, one for each grade. He knew our writing styles and could've easily faked essays, and he was going to just give us our average mark. As it turned out, he did teach the unit with his own spin on it, partly because I wanted to do it and told him as much, but I have to wonder if he's actually pulled that trick since I left ...


Love it!

Agreed 100%.


High school in NZ: Great after the first two years, you finally got respect from the teachers. Too much focus on sports though - we had a geography trip to the Gold Coast cancelled because it would have taken us out of class for too long while the sports teams would be pretty much allowed to disappear for weeks at a time.

Indonesian was the stock-standard LOTE offered where I went to school... in secondary school we could choose German, which I really should have picked since I went on to try it at Uni. But Indonesian seemed easier... and it was.

cockburn makes me think of just another variation of the term burn, ice burn, etc. "oooh, you got cockburned!"

WTF, really? That's just insane. My geography class got to go to the Great Barrier Reef but I had to stay home because the risk of me getting horribly sunburnt doing all their FUN AWESOME SOUNDING ACTIVITIES ON A CORAL REEF was far too high.

One of the people in my class one day yelled out "HI WALRUS....oh shit, that's not his name!" and ran like hell.

In our first year the storage closet was considered his personal room because he got sent there so much.

As a class we never took our art or music classes seriously and for a while we were told we were possibly the worst third form class the school could remember - which was a mistake because we wore it like a badge of honour!

What would be really cool is if you did that AND I could cue the songs up on my mp3 player... but one downside of it's cheapness is that it puts songs on there in a totally arbitrary order that has very little bearing on track numbers or song titles or anything. So it'd take me forever scrolling through 350 tracks for each one...

... Unless I knew the set beforehand and could at least put them all in the same folder.
