Pandemona:
The dutch schoolsystem has had a makeover a few years ago.
HAVO/VWO have gotten their homework doubled, and now have around 13-14 different 'studies' which you have to do exams for.

normally that was 6.

I doubt you got homework even near our work.

My day:

ouch, all my muscles hurt from helping my sis to move,
We met a junk yesterday when we were doing it. He is without doubt the most funny junk I've ever met

I can't explain, he was just totally fucking weird.

Today pool again

Ahh, vending machines...gotta love 'em!

One time there was this packet of Polo mints hanging pecariously on the edge of the spool that hold them in place, and myself and a friend decided to "coax" it out. Three or four rams into the thing later, and the Polos fell out of the spool and down into the collecting trough. Needless to say, minty-freshness was experienced by all that day.

Regards,
Morden

lgr>> Ha ha, no.


lol...

Today at english class, We had to fill in the blanks in a formal letter. So, I filled in everything, and then I could write what ever I wanted in the P.S blank, so I wrote "All the ducks are swimming in the water"

So, the girl who sat next to me isn't too bright, so she copys every little thing i write.

So when the teacher asked her to read out the letter,
she read everything perfectly, and the teacer was very pleased,
than she said "P.S.-- All the ducks are swimming in the water"

.....It took about 10 minutes for the class to calm down

On Tuesday we had these Australian students visit our school, and they gave a little presentation about themselves and their country. We asked many questions (including whether or not they drink Fosters ) and they ended up playing our basketball team later that evening.

I provided music and colour commentary for the game, which, of course, we (my home team) kicked ass, 75-49. Those damn aussies can't play b-ball for crap. (j/k)

We also pissed off the girl who sang the national anthem, because my friend wanted to sing it, and it ended up being a catfight, and now the girl (who was supposed to sing) is being a bitch.

Grr! Damn those Aussies!

GCSEs .. Important? AHHHHAHAAHAHAAAAA!

Important my ass! The sole purpose of GCSEs is to fill space on your CV so the british don't look lame when they come up against the European system (the International Bacalaureate (Buggered if I can spell it)), and to get you into a-levels, which are also pointless! Woo!

Double-J> Yeah, in a way, they're taken at around the same age I think...

We have to do GCSEs here in Saudi too as most schools here follow the british curriculum. A2 levels, not important? There's quite a difference in the amount of work + effort you need to put in between A2 level and GCSE. Remember Kieron, because of his A-levels result (which was all straight As) he got into Cambridge

Of course GCSEs are important.

Universities only have your GCSE results to go on (they interview you and offer you a place dependant on your A Level results). With so many applications to shift through, admissions tutors often glance at your GCSE results. If they aren't good enough, you'll go straight into the 'rejected' pile.

If you don't get straight A*s and As in your GCSEs then you can pretty much forget Oxbridge.

Don't forget that many people leave school at 16 with their GCSE results, so it could count as some people's only academic qualification.

What's more, the English education system is more flexible than the Baccalaureate, allowing for a freer choice of subjects at A2 Level, provided that you have good GCSE results.

demonixz, I would venture to suggest that you try to pass GCSEs off as less important because you'd rather study the effects of drinking alcohol on the human body, using yourself as a test subject

Just finished my mocks today...get the results next week.

That's what they WANT you to think
Word from on high (Uni admin) is that the majority of decisions are taken based on predicted a-level grades, references, and your personal statement.
Once you get a degree, the rest is all unimportant - I have two parents who interview people for jobs regularly, neither they nor their fellows care about anything beyond your degree in terms of qualifications.

But then, I'm a very bitter person when it comes to the education system - I'm from the year of people who have been messed around at almost every key juncture by various governments - first year to do SATs in year three, first year to do CATs, first year to do less GCSEs, first year through A/S levels, which I'm still angry about in fact. And there's a bunch more stuff that I'm too wasted to remember right now

And you're right on that last point - I was never a fan of biology

Anyway, regardless of all that - good luck to all and sundry taking any form of exam in the near future, important or not, they're all a vile experience

Yeh, you're probably right. Still, the better you do at GCSE level, the better you're set up for A2 Levels.

A2? Whats that?

No GCSEs for me just yet. I only have Polish this year. Rest come next year. I've had a few mocks..... not too hard, but I hear they have completely rechanged GCSE's or something.

How can you say GCSE's suck? If you have NO GCSEs you will end up licking windows and floors for a living. You have to have some qualifications. Also, if A-Levels suck, why do foreigners come here and do them? Or do them in their countries? Hmmm? Look at Saudi, a perfect example. If GCSEs and ALEVELS suck, why do THEY do them?
Not for fun I hope

Well, if GCSEs don't suck, why is there such support for the UK to switch to the French system? Eh?

And just because a lot of people do something, doesn't mean its a good idea. I mean, lots of people drink Nescafe ... Doesn't mean its good coffee...

And get with the program! We don't do these archaic 'A-levels' now, we do A2s and A/Ss, way more modern. C'mon.

No, he just works at the super market after school.

Anyway, my day.
I'm really good at finding my way through a big mass of people. And I almost always now where to go.
So yesterday, Twinsal grabbed my bag while I was still carrying it, and held on to it, to get through all the people. So I immediately grabbed her arm and told her to let go, and she said no. So I was just about to put my nails in her arm, when she let go and said: "Jeesh, what use is a human shield that attacks me?!"
Today was fun. We practiced the play at KCV, and it was really fun. I now know what I will have to sing. And I'm gonna rap! I already feel like Tuesday... Unlike Twinsal.

If there's any morale in the last two days, it is:
Nevermind the bollocks.

lots of things just annoyed the hell out of me, but, there was a lot of good things too. So I'll just have to focuss on that

Edit:
It's probaly just me, but I'm the last two days very vulnurable by anything or something. Every lil thing can piss me off, set me on fire almost. But I can enjoy a good joke as good, or write an awesome piece. Just listening to something I'm busy on and I decided to do vocals on it, bu it's very touching and means a lot.
It has obviously a deeper meaning, which I won't reveal, but then it's even more special

Damn, I love it, gotta practise my vocals a bit though, you can't do something just from out of nowhere. Especially when the vocals aren't just your average 'chanting', or scary like the one on 'ghostland'.

So i'll have to practise tommorrow in the shower -not to loud ofcourse-.

you know what disturbed me today?
it's quite hilarious when you realise what it is.
1. having a small disagree about something what isn't even important. I did not even mentioned it since it isn't my busness.
2. Losing pool yesterday (while i usually don't mind, just have fun).
3. Going to a friend who wasn't there, but it was only 4 min walking, so quite ridiculous.
4. At work, some 'loco' old woman doing utterly retarded, although everybody picked my side, it was the only thing this evening that should have been able to piss me off.
5. The food my mom kept for me wasn't edible for me, didn't find it rather good, the fish wasn't my taste, yuck.
6. They said 'oh well there's still icecream' then I say, 'ok i'll have a bite after I eat this' , suddenly after 30 min I check it out and it's eaten already by my sis, I did not even know she was there anyway. They could have ofcourse known that since there was still the same amount of icecream left, I had not yet taken it.
7. We would go for dinner out tommorrow, so my sis couldn't go cuz she will go working. 'so they decided it's monday night then' - without even thinking about wether I could go that evening or not - and then when I heard it, and said I will be working on monday, she just asked 'oh but is it bad?'

that just pisses me off!
I don't care about the ice ofcourse, but about first inviting you to something, and then taking it away without a second thought.

heh, well, I feel much better already by writing down how stupid this all is.

2 days ago, was fun. We practiced that play Star mentioned. And I just can't do a certain part, in which we have to do some wrong moves, I just have to laugh all the time. And the only thing I can think of to do is that stupid ketchupsongdance. I know I'm gonna hate that. The rest of the play is OK.

Yesterday, I had a really weird dream. I don't know it exactly anymore, but I dreamt it was Friday and that I went to school. Obviously, I hate school that much, I could remember exactly that Friday was yesterday and the I shouldn't have school now. ANd then I paniced a little and thought: "This ain't real.......this must be a dream. I don't like it, I want to wake up NOW! It's very strange to wake up if u want it yourself.
Later we went to Arnhem. I luuuff going to other places coz they can have stuff to sell you can't get here/can't get here anymore/can get here later. Got myself Breath of Fire 2.

Sunday is boring.
I did my homework and watched TV.
Although, it was fun to practice for the play. I can finally rap now! And I know what to sing. Tomorrow we're gonna practice the whole thing. I hope it works out.
