Just a few FMLs

Mm, maybe it’s time to share the crap of the world:

Today, my identical twin sister was nice enough to switch classes with me so she could take a test I wasn’t ready for. Since we look so much alike the plan went over well. Until we found out she accidentally wrote her name on top of the paper instead of mine. FML

Today, I went to the dentist to get a hole in my tooth filled. After the dentist had injected the anesthetic into my gums, she realized that none of the electrical equipment were working. She sent me home. My entire right side of my face is completely numb and swollen for no reason. FML

Today, my mum hit me with her car as she was backing out of the drive way, hurting my leg and crushing my bike. For the third time this year. FML

Today, I was walking with my boyfriend down the street and a really hot guy walked past with no shirt on. While distracted by his hardened stomach muscles, I promptly walked into a pole, then became single. FML

Well, I hope you had a few laughs.

Recently there isn’t much happening in my life. Video committee is really trying to pick things up but yeah it’s hard…and SACs and all that are starting to pile up and of course exams are coming. Everyone’s stressed and on edge.

Hope to be able to blog more later when things happen.

P.S., did I ever mention about the studio photo-shoot we’ve got planned?

GAT 09 – George Clooney

Before I say anything else, please read this very short The Age article online:

George Clooney The Answer for VCE Pranksters

This way I don’t have to explain it all.

So, yes, in summary, I did include George Clooney into my GAT. I was tempted to include it into the informative piece, where I was writing about the lifespan and functions of the worker bee, and how in its “Golden Years” – much like George Clooney is now…but no I decided it would only be wise to include it in the opinion section.

The opinion section was about possessions. So:

“…to have possessions would make people happy. And happiness is an individual thing. Some people may be happy with what little they have, such as George Clooney and his Nespresso coffees…”

“…sure, possessions lessen our appreciation for traditional things, as was George Clooney’s appreciation of fine women for instant coffee shots…”

And I only thought about this one after I finished it:

“…possessions make us happy. Just like if one was to possess George Clooney.”

Now, as you may have read, VCAA did not say if they would mark down those who mention Clooney. But hey I think if they do, that’s just a reflection of their stupid conservative ways, and absolute rigidity. Here, we finally have all the students uniting to be CREATIVE in such a boring assessment, and actually looking FORWARD to sitting the GAT, and what do you do? You reward them by marking them down. Bad children, who taught you to be creative and find fun in life? You MUST do things as we tell you and be stuck in the mould we’ve set.

Well, we’ll see what happens. I’m pretty sure if they (VCAA) marked this down the students would all revolt. After all, as long as it was relevant, it’s like marking someone down for using black pen instead of blue.

I finished the thing an hour early. Had time for a Maccas run.

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!
