So now you've explained how half the teachers are feeling Wink how about you?

I figure they don't like putting up with this.  Cheesy We're a bunch of mini-ghetto suburban kids restless with society. I do blame this however upon the Board of Education and the administration at this school. They do a real horrible job, especially in trying to keep this school safe as well as school spirit up.

But still, I love this time of year -- I always feel very energized and excited in the fall, and get a bit depressed and worn out in the spring.  I just love buying school supplies, too.   Cheesy

Me too, oddly. Last year I was all excited for school, especially to go back and be with my friends again. And yes, the school supplies! They're all nice and shiny and new and colourful.

And then somehow at the end of December you're wondered where half the hell of them went!

So what are you guys all feeling right now about going back to school?

I've got exactly 2 weeks left now, and I'm having a bad conscience because I haven't started on my 30-page-essay on the Salem Witch Trials yet  Sad.

Ok, it's only due end of January, but I've known the topic since March and have only read about half of one of the at least six books I have to read for it. And given that next year is going to be really hard work, being my last year at school and each and every test counting to the average grade of my leaving examinations, I had hoped to get some work done in the summer vacations... I'm just a really good procrastinator, I'll be working through the Christmas holidays, I think  Sad


Quote
But this year a part of me is screaming inside, "NO DEAR GOD NO" of going back, simply because I'm scared that this is my last year in high school. After this its over. So far I haven't degenerated into hysterics, but I make no promises. Cheesy

Same with me there, it's really scary that after this year real life is waiting out there. Doesn't help that I'm not 100 percent decided what exactly to do afterwards. I'm really glad that I have at least a basic idea at last, though  Grin

And good luck for your final year at school!!!

And yes, the school supplies! They're all nice and shiny and new and colourful.

*dreamy* School supplies! I love them, too...

 But with me they don't even last until December. For example last year I bought this great, totally flexible (=basically unbreakable, which is just perfect for me Wink ) protractor, I was soooo happy (ok, I'm a bit crazy about things like that, I admit it). And guess what happened. No, it didn't break, it was just perfect - until I lost it in the third week of being back to school after the summer vacations  Cry. Never found anything like it again...

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your vacations, everyone!!!
And for those already back to school: My thoughts are with you while I'm still lying in bed at ten in the morning Wink

I have no idea either, but I suspect it will have something to do with either computers or the arts. Right now I'm just trying to pound it into the head of my grandparents that I DO NOT want to become: a lawyer, a doctor, a nurse, a pharmacist, a neurosurgeon, or anything else that involves 8+ in education+training+etc that I have no interest in whatsoever. Tongue


And good luck for your final year at school!!!

Thank you! Smiley Good luck with your essay!

I'll probably take part in a "Voluntary Ecological Year" (for want of a better translation  Huh) and then take an undergrad course in either Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Biochemistry or Pharmacy...

Good luck with your essay!
Thanks!

I've got exactly 2 weeks left now

And those two weeks were over today Sad

*RANT WARNING*

I can't believe what our English teacher did today. It was the first day back at school, and he let us write a comment. Nothing unusual in an English lesson. Then he let five of us read it out. Nothing all that unusual, too. But. He. Gave. Us. Marks. For. It!!! Can you believe it? Very first lesson of the year and he starts marking immediately? You're just back from vacation, trying to adjust your brain to school, and barely remember the basics of comment-writing and then he does that to you. No wonder he's the most unpopular English teacher at our school. Doesn't help that he teaches half of his lessons in German. German! I mean, we're an English "achievement course" (that's the word-to-word translation of the term, so far I haven't come up with a better one) and he talks German, I know no other teacher who does that, my English teacher in grade 11 f'ex only did it when we were translating (and she is the best English teacher on earth   Kiss)... Obviously, I was one of the five who had to read out, I'm always lucky when it comes to things like that... I don't know what mark I got yet, and I know it probably won't be all that bad, but still... it's unfair  Angry

geez that is unfair, my english teacher keeps saying she wants us to grade our own in the first few weeks, and speaking german in the class, wow

course in the U.S. the only classes we have were they don't speak english is a foreign language class, and i can barely do well in those classes as it is
is english your second language or first?
i find it seems more interesting school systems that are in other countries, actually anything thats not in the U.S. is interesting to me Tongue

good luck with that class though

Second, I've been learning it at school for 8 years...

How it works in Germany is that in the last two years of school you can choose what subjects you want to take, given that certain requirements are met (you have to take German, History and Math, f'ex). There are two types of courses, achievement courses and basic courses. You have two achievement courses (mine are English and Biology), in which you have 5 lessons a week, and 7-9 basic courses, with two to three weekly lessons... You sit the Abitur (leaving examinations) in four subjects, the two achievment courses and two basic courses (mine are going to be Ethics and Math or German).

For me, anything that's not Germany is interesting  Wink

Thanks! I've already survived a year with this teacher, and I guess I will survive this year, too... Although some time I might explode and tell him what I think of his classes. But I really pray that won't happen, as he's known to be pretty resentful into the bargain, and he also teaches my Ethics basic course, meaning that he marks half of my Abitur... *keeps her temper*  Smiley
