…nothing exciting happened. Although that might just be teenager talk. We did get free pizza though, so that was cool.
This whole week has been filled with a lot of stuff. We didn’t have any normal classes, instead we had these ‘Study Skills’ days, which everyone was apparently dreading. (Personally, I was just looking forward to getting out of normal classes for a while.) These study skills days consist of learning -you guessed it- ways to study! Yaaaay. We went over things like study guides, key terminology for classes, depression and stress, ALARM (don’t ask) and memorisation techniques. We had these classes on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday morning and Friday. It was a pretty lax couple of days.
What happened between Wednesday afternoon and Friday I can hear you ask? The swimming carnival. My /last/ swimming carnival. No more competitive swimming for school. That was a good realisation. The carnival was good fun! Seeing at it was my classes last year, we decided to much up in the races we entered. We even broke out in a synchronised swimming act! Which wasn’t quite as impressive as it may sound…
On Thursday the whole school got the day off, seeing as the carnival went until 8-freaking-pm on Wednesday night. So I spent the day playing some Broken Age, watching some Simpsons and recording a video for my Youtube channel. All while not changing out of my pyjamas. That was a productive day.
The Friday was the day we got free food. It was from a university that came to visit our school to talk to us about, well, university. Which was helpful. I have no idea how university works and that’s all I’ve been looking at the past few days. But that’s another topic for another day. But yeah, point is, pizza is good, and university is confusing.
So I guess the “Nothing exciting happened” was just teenager talk after all.
