Halleluia!!!

Ok, so I finally got ADSL!!!
yay!!
really, my net speed was terrible. Dad only sees a slight improvement, I don't know what he's thinking, you know? It's SO much better now......
Sigh. Sweet relief and happiness.....

Anyway. I've been away for a while (by my standards, it's been long.....).......I've been SO tired....Captaincy is very demanding. I've been trying to play volleyball, at the same time giving moral support for the matches we've had so far...
I tell you.....it's not easy being captain of a house that's been foming frigging fourth ever since I remember.
Anyway.
We get 'invested' on thursday. Investiture ceremony is this deadly boring ceremony we have where all prefects, student council, house office bearers etc get their badges.
Lesee...we the council have to slow march into the hall through the back entrance, like a bride or something, all the way up to the stage....all the while pretending we have no knees. When we finally regain the use of our knees...it bloody hurts!
plus there's a flag. A rather unwieldy flag. Sigh.
Our lives rock na?
Waiting for the vacations. So that I can enJOY. Not that i'm not now, but whatever.
Yeah, currently I'm struggling to stay awake in physics-chem..
English is sleep time this year, it looks like.
why, why why can we not get a really phenomenal english teacer for once......

Congratulations for your ADSL!

And Investiture ceremony, heh. I remember that so well. I wasn't a house captain so I didn't have to carry any flags but still it was torturing. I mean just standing there in pledge position uttering things you know you won't be doing all the time. They seriously need to make it cooler. I remember naming it Infestiture ceremony last year..because they infest our brains with all these oaths during it.

ooo sounds like a parade!

shame about the english teacher!! as an english student i think its SOO important that english is taught in a fun exciting way!

There's a funny story I'm reminded of. They would call this big shot guy for the investiture thing and he would have to pin this little badge on everyone's chest.

The problem is, you don't do it to the girls. This teacher would run over to the guy's side if he even mildly considered doing it, and she would pin the thing on the girl.

You bring back a lot of things for me. Good luck kid.

I remember this one teacher in we had in the 8th grade. She was more of a sub, actually.

We spent the first lecture trying to convince her that the word-for-a-phrase substitution answer for "tribe that lives on the hills" is not "hilly tribe".

-_-"

We had her kicked out in a week, though. ^_^
