Too much negativity on this board. Things That Shit Me thread is up to Part 6 and there isn't anywhere to post good stuff that happens.

You're all a bunch of angry, negative pricks! :p


Aaaah Bachelor thread. Disappeared!!!

What pleases me now: kids have gone home for PT night.

I was the "good student just needs to speak up more/ask more questions in class" student. Every single report card, except media funnily enough. Could not shut me up in that subject.

My problem was (and I am not trying to pump my own tyres up here) I was too smart. I finished everything really quickly and it was not challenging and the teachers gave me nothing else to do, so I distracted others.

Yeah I had that comment on my reports in Year 11 and 12 Maths. The bludge maths.. not the smart maths. But I didn't distract anyone :p

I did okay on core subjects

It was the micky mouse subjects I bombed in
Grooming and Deportment (I couldn't walk with the book on my head)
Music
Tech Drawing
Sewing
Spent more time wagging than I did in class. My parents never even bothered showing up for interviews - said it was me letting myself down, not them, so they weren't going to care if I didn't

**** I was so shit at wood work, textiles, etc anything practical like that and art.

Loved English Literature, Food Tech, Legal, Media, Maths and Biology. (Every other science I hated)

It's weird thinking back to high school. Seems so important at the time. I think you should be able to pick your classes more around year 9 rather than 11.

We got to pick from year 9 onwards. There were 3 or 4 subjects that you had to take (Maths, English) but the others were your choice.
