Methods SAC

Today was the first 3/4 Methods SAC. I had a triple free at the end of the day so I did a little bit of work in P4, had lunch in the Common Room with Dani (who was going bananas over her Lit SAC in the very next double) and then in P5 and 6 bunkered down in the library and did a few exercises.

SAC wasn’t too bad, I suppose. I had people reckon that the SAC was harder than the 2nd test, which I found absurd seeing as I got 69% for the 2nd test (haha 69) so it either means I am falsely confident and I am so fucked for this SAC, or they were wrong. There was one irksome question, which I know I did not get. But, really, it wasn’t altogether too bad.

After the seemingly obligatory post-SAC-mortem, Carmaine, Fel and I went to buy some junk/comfort food at Flinders, before taking an old train home.

Now I await my results.

My week’s outlook is not bright:

Friday: Grand Prix so I will bunker at home and study for my English SAC which is in a week, my English Language SAC which is in a week and a day, and perhaps if I can be bothered my Chinese SAC which is a day before my English. Flipside? After next Tuesday, I can thoroughly enjoy my last week of wearing school uniforms.

Speaking of which, we tried on the hoodies today in the Common Room, and I was (figuratively) swimming in the XS. I sure am looking forward to wearing the jumpers, though, because that will show the stupid Juniors who the Yr 12s are.

And, I suppose, speaking of 69. Andrew got a new – and what I call – “Special Poster” which he so gleefully showed me last week. It was the Periodic Table of Elements, except replace the last word with “Sex-Positions”. There were, for example, and this was actually the only example which I paid attention to – or rather, dared to pay attention to, the “Standing 69.” It came complete with a graphic illustration/instruction, employing 2 artist’s mannequins, one for female and one for male. And where the Table of Elements have the extra bit along the bottom, Andrew had “Advanced Positions” which, at a glance, seemed to defy gravity.

A suitably awkward yet highly amusing topic of conversation.

I spent my weekend watching Just for Laughs Gags online. They are. INGENIUS. I hope I do get onto the video committee so I can perhaps employ some of those gags. Oh and Bianca and Fel are on the Formal Committee, Bee being the General Manager. That sounds really important, so congratulations to her!

Longest post in a while. Sorry I have been so quiet lately (and this was reflected on my blog hits). I suppose getting Facebook was a very bad disease for the popularity of my blog, and also I suppose Yr 12 VCE was also a crippling handicap. Besides, there really haven’t been much of write-worthy lately.

OH AND, I NEARLY FORGOT! Today Gen and Bec shaved their heads. A public spectacle at lunchtime, and both shed tears. We love those two, though. What a good cause!

Mmm…Metaphors…

Last night I came up with these little musings/lines. I couldn’t figure out how to put them together in context, nor do I wish to particularly share the context in which they were conceived, so I’m just putting them here:

I’ve more or less come to terms with the fact that happiness would most likely go knock on everyone else’s door first, looking for a place to crash, before finally, reluctantly, and after roughing it out as a hobo for several months, come to me.

I’ve tried being optimistic, trust me. I’ve gone and looked for the silver lining on so many clouds that, had I been successful each time, I would’ve accumulated enough silver to kill the entire werewolf community. As things are, I have barely enough to poison a small hamster.

It’s okay, I didn’t stake too much emotion into this one. I mean, I staked some emotions, but hey, even though the stock market crashed I’ve still got enough to live on instant-noodles with.

It feels like Life is the schoolyard bully, and a psychologically twisted one at that. She’d let me have a bit of breathing space, let me be happy for a bit, let me enjoy my lunch money, and just when I’m starting to get confident in the schoolyard, she’d grab me by the collar, dunk my head in the toilet, and laugh because I’d actually believed for a second that I am going to be okay.

I’m Lovin’ It

Today afterschool I met up with Dom at Melb Central to return his nunchucks, and Brian, Theresa, Jan- and D.P. were there. I was hungry and decided to get something to eat, and hearing that Brian works at Maccas we go line up. Brian gets the front of the line, nods at the guy behind the counter, says we want 2 cheeseburgers and fries as said on this coupon, and another double beef. I get out my wallet to pay. Brian says, “Don’t worry about it.”

I smirk, “Like hell I’m gonna let you pay.”

He says, “Who said anything about paying?”

Before I could open my mouth to let my brain contemplate this fact, the guy behind the counter comes back, and hands Brian a bag, and we turn and leave. Brian knew the guy, and in turn Brian gets free food.

Later on, Theresa and I go up to the counter. Theresa actually says to the guy “can we have a thickshake for free?” and we got a large thickshake for free.

I’m starting to think, I want to either make friends with people who work at Maccas (specifically the Melb Central one) or I start doing a stint there myself. Free food! It’s legendary.

P.S. Got my Legal SAC part 1 results back, and was mediocre. Sho- said that a score is just a score and it hardly matters at the end of the year. I take comfort in that.

You just haven’t realized.

Faking My Own Suicide – Relient K

I dressed up as a ninja today, and it was heaps fun. April had this little scary (blunt) dagger and I had the nunchucks borrowed off Dom (which, by the way, were so much fun to just hold ‘cos people kept on wanting it haha). I went up to the stage when it was Oreads’ turn to parade, and I did the HYAH! thing all ninjas do. It was heaps fun. Heaps. Fun. Oreads had so many awesome costumes, but I think I might have to admit Gen and Pras-‘s hakka was the BEST! And they won it fair and square too.

As to the song, it was just stuck in my head today. Nothing meaningful.

Mai (aha, here’s the mention) dressed up in traditional Vietnamese costume and it was really really yellow. Julia Yr 11 dressed in a Korean costume and that was so bloody cool except she had trouble climbing up onto the stage because of it.

No more dressing up for Multicultural Week anymore. I saw Ca- today at Glen Waverley station. She graduated last year and when I told her that today was the parade, she “aww”ed nostalgically. She’s doing med at Monash. Figures.

Hyah!

Have I mentioned this? Tomorrow is Multicultural Week at our school so I’m dressing up as a ninja as per agreed upon with April last year after watching Viking Girl go nuts onstage.

Today we had to wear blazers as we had this proper assembly about how we’re acknowledging that the land we are on tradtionally belongs to the Aboriginal people. I think that…well hey it’s about time something happens in that field, and it’s good we’re one of the first schools to do such a thing because I know in the future this’ll become a big deal. Like in the future, my kid (my kid? Look let’s not get into specifics) would ask me “Mom, when Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said Sorry in 2008, where were you?” And I would be very proud indeed to be able to tell my kid that “Mom was watching the broadcast live on TV at school. That day, no one really had any classes, and everyone went to a classroom with a TV and we all watched Mr Rudd give that speech. And then we watched Brendan Nelson give the other really awful speech. It was a really big deal, you know, what happened.”

Anyway, so, ninja.

I went to Dani’s place this afternoon to pick out some black clothing (I borrowed all black stuff, so I said to her, “I could lose these clothes in the dark, you know…”) and Andrew so skilfully bagged my size by leaning on my head. But yeah, I’m ready for tomorrow. The scarf is a bit of a problem it always slips off. I don’t know, we’ll figure something out. And maybe April might get her hands on the balaclavas.

I also nabbed a ring off Dani. See, my fingers are very thin, and most rings fall off, but this one not only stays on but actually got stuck a bit. So I get to keep it because…well if it sticks on me like hell Dani would ever be able to wear it…

I have a bit of Eng Lang to do (a bit? A bit my ass) tonight and for the next few nights, and some Legal to do by Friday. But yeah, other than that I am literally winging it as it comes. Did badly at Maths, too.
