Although I think high school was a pretty cool time, its college that makes you hate life hehe.


that depends on a lot of things ;) and strongly on the place you live/go to college/school
You know you've been hanging around a forum too long when people start quoting you and agreeing :P

I'm pretty sure school is starting here on August 30th, a Wednesday...
That or the 28th, which would be so much more logical. But then again, this is a pretty screwed up school district. :p
Mmmm. I can't wait to wake up at 4:30 again...

Well college became my life and so hated it. But then my college was a horrible place to study. It was the type where if you didn't know it then they overlooked you and concentrated on those who would boost their statistics.

But that's all over and I'm starting Uni in Sept for Freshers Week!!

Well, for me... Uni here in Japan will finish on August 4th. BUT the problem is since I will be going back to Australia to continue my degree after that, I will miss 2 weeks of uni since it starts on July 24th! :(


4th August in Japan? My goodness, isn't it too hot to think at that time?

The school i teach at has classes all year long, and it is just a high school. The kids dont have to take summer classes but they can if they want more credits or if they have to take summer school.

It is a good idea and i think all high schools should have year-round classes. and i get payed overtime during the summer so that makes me really like it.

From what I hear here, is that some of the year round schools are going back to standard classes and wile other schools are going to year round classes what a mess, it seems to work better in some area then others. Its about the same amount of school days between the two, its just one has a like three week summer break and holidays last for around a week. so it all evens out at the end.

Ah, move-in day is in exactly one week. I haven't even thought about packing yet... I'm such a bad procrastinator. I still can't believe I signed up for 19 credits my first semester at college... I'm thinking that's going to turn out to be a bad idea ;)
