I haven't blogged much lately- mainly due to the effects on my body caused by my return to the scholastic establishment. Or should I say start? For those who were wondering (although it was pretty blatent), I've decided to go the boys' school.
Starting a new school kind of reminded me about the stuff I always forget about, and the stuff that is the same everywhere, and even some stuff I've never realised:
- Popularity is maintained by everyone else believing someone is popular.
- "Popular" doesn't actually mean popular.
- When somebody says "Top State School", what is actually said is "Top [despite being a] State School [but still not as a good as private schools]"
- One can be saved from geek-dom by being good looking.
- The geeks are always the best.
- Teachers pick on you to answer questions if you make eye contact.
- Teachers pick on you to answer questions if you don't make eye contact.
- Homework will always be set for tomorrow.
- Staring is a terrible wooing tactic.
- Gender stereotypes regarding gossip and being two-faced are completely wrong.
- The snooze button is too conveniently placed.
- The only thing you want to learn in another language is insults.
- The year above is always terrifying.
