I crashed my car today!!! It was terrible. Well, at the time it was, luckily there seems to be no sign of damage and the person who I accidentally rolled backwards in to ignored my apologetic pulling over to the side of the road so I am just hoping that there are going to be no threatening phone calls in the next couple of hours (which is why I’m staying on the internet).
I don’t know how I did it but I survived my first week back at school. Sort of. No, right in this moment I am actually feeling really positive. I know what I have to do and I think I’m going to enjoy doing it in a way. You see, all my life I’ve managed to get away with everyone thinking I’m doing ok but never really having to prove it to anyone, including myself. I never properly finished primary school because there was some weird transition between living in Brunei and Australia. Then when it came to my first exams in year 8 for the year 9 classes, I got out of it because I was leaving. I left Brunei one term before my IGCSE’s and then I skipped off to Costa Rica half way through my IB’s, at one stage with plans to go straight to uni by doing some shonky foundation course. But now I’m back. And when I think about it in terms of 1 week finished out of 30 (I always liked fractions)… it’s not THAT bad… This is what I’m thinking today anyway.
I would just like to say that I think other bloggers should be very happy, Matt has been doing a bit of publicity whilst in Adelaide. Yesterday we were in the city and through his Erin-made (not me, Mike’s Erin) shirt, advertised Spy-mag and educated on the job of a ‘blogger’. Such a ridicules word… who made that up?
I was actually in town for some lectures that our school organised. I am now a firm believer in capitalism. Having no prior knowledge on the subject of Globalisation and the International Economy I would say that I was probably fairly easy to persuade and would not be able to argue my newfound point in a pinch but I have plans to look in to it.
I just spoke to Jassa’s Grandma in Spanish. SO COOL!
