    Aw well. I'm sure you've met plenty of amazing people over the years. And you have your online friends too which is nice.

    Heh, generally it'll be the boarders who push the uniform rules further because they know the teachers more personally and have the stuff on-site rather than at home. Sometimes if music is my last lesson then I decide I can't be bothered with uniform anymore and just get changed into completely normal clothes for the lesson, haha.

    Eh, I consider anyone I like talking to to be interesting I suppose, so you fall into that category in my book. ^^ What's so monotonous about it?

    Huh, that sucks pretty bad although it's nice that you still have the one friend. I've been through a few schools and due to the location of my current one it's been hard for me to grow up with any friends, although I've made quite a few new ones.

    Lol I wear hoodies in school quite a lot actually. The music and sports staff really couldn't care less so that makes it a bit more comfortable. x)

    Well, you shouldn't be sad about being an interesting person imo, especially given the number of people I've spoken to who would give anything to have something about themselves to say to someone. Assuming you mean that you feel bad about talking about yourself a lot, that is.

    Aw, that's pretty unfortunate I guess. I suppose it has the positive of meeting a lot of new people but just not for long. I don't know if I'd like that at all tbh. Especially since I deactivated my facebook a long time ago, haha.

    I noticed the other day that in my school's library there is a poster advertising hoodies which we aren't meant to wear in school. That amused me a little.

    Nah, it's interesting to hear about someone else imo. I tend to talk about me a fair bit until you get into personal stuff and then I become really reserved. And then when I know someone well enough to stop being reserved they'll never hear the end of it lol.

    Wow, I can't imagine moving around that much. I was out of the house for a couple of months when I was younger because we had to move somewhere else just for a short while for various reasons but otherwise we haven't moved much. You might get jealous but I'm so sick of it sometimes, haha.

    The only think I like about them is that they remove the pressure of dressing well if you all look mostly the same anyway. But I like to adapt uniforms a little bit, which is allowed, to make it more personal at the same time if you get what I mean and it works really well. (=

    Haha well, that's a great thing imo. One of the best conversational skills you can ever have, I think, is the ability to give a decent reply. That way, the other person does a lot of the talking too and we all know how people like to talk about themselves, at least on a basic level. x)

    Yeah ikr. It's so modern and everything. As for moving houses, outside of school I've always lived in the same house until now but I'm about to move in with my aunt which will be a pretty odd situation, getting used to the new surroundings and stuff.

    Most, if not all, schools here require uniforms until 16 and even then a lot of them continue after that. I always found the idea of Americans not needing them completely alien, haha.

    Well not literally but you seem an interesting enough person, even if that's just because you can think of something substantial to say in reply to pretty much everything I've said so far. (=

    They'll probably do it over the summer holidays, but if I remember correctly they plan to move the people from them into the new accommodation which is much, much nicer. I'd like to live in that.

    Ikr. Education was hit so hard; there's a student fund (pre-uni) called EMA which basically provides students in low-income families with either £10, £20 or £30 a week to help them keep on in their education and stuff. They went and removed that too which is beyond irritating. I was in the £30 section and although education is free for me I still have to use quite a bit of it on other things like stationary, uniform, books, etc. It'll be a lot harder without it. ¬¬

    Also I was stalking you and I found a twitter and my finger slipped and I might now be obsessed with you just saying.

    Maybe I'm just being slow then...

    I agree that putting ANOTHER sticky is less than desirable. Maybe blogging that POTW is open? I'm guessing a well-timed advertising post could bring in the numbers.

    I think it's a mix of both. School have been aware of that for months maybe years, though, and never fixed it. =/

    Oh right, what job are you doing? And yeah the university situation in England exploded recently as the government saw it appropriate to make 80% funding cuts to them. No exaggeration there whatsoever. =/

    April 26th, 2011 2:46 PM
    That was the situation, yes, and I went for the far away one. It's still hard to tell how it would have come out had I gone for the closer one but I'm alright as I am, so I don't need to know really.

    They get quite cold but otherwise they're sort of comfortable but they have some serious hot water issues. As it turns out the boiler to them dies around 30 minutes after the end of the school day so showers become rather awkward. Fortunately I don't have to live in them, haha.

    Judging by your age, would it be safe to assume you're in college / university or looking for a job / employed?

    What I mean is just a new thread each week, that'll get unstickied/deleted upon voting closure. I didn't know voting had started because you just edited the thread without drawing attention to it (i.e. it wasn't bold again, so I didn't think anything had changed). Just a suggestion, though.

    April 26th, 2011 2:38 PM
    Yeah, basically that. For a university I'd consider making it although I'd rather live on campus in that case. Out of complete choice yes, I would have preferred to have gone to a closer state school, but there weren't many I really liked since the primary school I came out of which had a secondary sector was a very, very rough place. I managed to get into the school I'm in now for free though, and it's good at the subjects I'm studying so it's all good. Mum also wanted to live a more, for lack of a better word, singular life so it suited her too.

    Yeah I really would, but they haven't done anything about it in years. It's some of the accommodation that's a worry really; although they are working on new boarding facilities, some people have spent years living in literally large sheds.

    I think I'll stick with this one until I get sick of it, it's close to home and the managers friendly so I'll stay for a while.

    We have a double decker giant oven, to cook multiple things at once. I wish I could go slowly, but we have to go really fast D:

    April 26th, 2011 2:30 PM
    It's about an hour by train which isn't all that long but it's just a pain when I can be boarding for free anyway. I would have preferred to be just a day student if school was very close, like some of my old ones, but that's not the case here.

    Haha, I suppose so, although some people say that some of the meals we have are pretty good now, like lasagne for example. Irritatingly though they don't cater well at all for people with things like coeliac disease or lactose intolerance, the latter of which I have, so choices are pretty limited sometimes.

    I sometimes do and sometimes don't. It's nice to not have the hassle of moving back and forwards between home and school, especially since I have quite a lot to haul around, and you get to build up some nice relationships with other students and some staff too.

    But on the downside, I do sometimes want to go home although due to a few recent happenings at home in all honesty it's the last place I want to be right this minute. And as ridiculous as it sounds the food is awful, haha.

    Yea D: If you saw my last blog entry, I wrote about my first day training, it was quite weird and unexpected :/ That's what I hate, I've been taking crap all my life at school and at home, and I never do anything about it because I don't want people to look down on me or get in trouble, and when I do want to get a job to make some money so I can buy things that I enjoy, it turns out to be crappy and I have to take more things.

    I'm kinda freaked about using the ovens here, one of my co-workers has a 6 inch burn from them D:

Sorry, feel like babbling about notebooks/binders. Feel free to skip this.

Except for the tl;dr at the bottom.


I've written original stories as a hobby for years and years now. This means I have tons of projects. There's usually time to write during break, or sometimes after work if I'm waiting for a ride. This gives me time to start stuff on paper, and type it onto the computer later. Honestly, it's easiest to get the words flowing on paper anyway, since

That's right, me!

Plot Twist: I'm 24. In the state of Kansas, I could've enrolled in a driver's ed course in high school 10 years ago.

Anyway, pretty stoked about actually learning how to drive. Even if I can't afford a car for awhile, at least I can drive in case of emergency or something.

Everyone get off the road :O

In my defense, I was only 14 when I joined. nayana_1120 sounded like a good idea then. Now, not so much.

I've had a ton of fun on this forum for 10 years. You've helped me have some semblance of a life when I was a socially awkward teenager, and beyond! This forum still means a lot to me, even now when I'm not as active....

The day I changed my profile picture, after having the same one for years and years. I got tired of the dancing OC sprite I made like 10 years ago. The 10 years might not actually be a joke... can't verify, though. My computer gave me a 2007 date which I know can't be right.

I have no idea what I actually want to put there, but until then, here's a picture of me stalking a fast-food sheep in Animal Crossing.
