Pumped For School- Can't wait!

Okay, so... School doesn't start up here again until September 7th, and I can't wait to get back!

If you read some of my older posts (the few I made) of last year's school year, then you will understand why. It may seem weird for anyone going to a north american public school to be excited to go back, and often times it would be, mine is completely different!

The teachers aren't just teachers, they are friends. That is one of my favorite things about it all; they don't treat us like inferior beings like most teachers do just because that is the "traditional" teacher-student relationship, they treat us like equals because we are.

I also can't wait to see all of my friends again!

Back to the teachers for a minute... My English teacher from last year who all of my "old" readers will know about, told me (to my delight) that I "better be" in her class this year, which she said right when she found out I wouldn't be able to be in advanced english which she teaches (which disappointed BOTH of us) because due to transportation issues I would not be able to get there half an hour early everyday. When she said I better be in her class, she also said that "we can make it happen".

In other words, sometime before school starts I need to talk to the guidance councilor or someone about changing things around so it happens (if I didn't already get in it by chance).  There is supposed to be a call a week or two before school about "course changes" and things that would indicate when I should go to do that, but there hasn't been anything yet, so I am a little confused, but will figure it out soon!

I found a really interesting song which makes the obvious point that there are only so many combinations of chords that musicians can use, and one seems to be REALLY common! Some songs aren't as different as we thought... They linked together 36 songs that all use the same chords. It is REALLY cool to hear so take a listen!

  1. It sounds like you've got a great school there and great teachers too. I don't remember it being that when I was in school, I'm sure it wasn't!

    It's wonderful that you are so enthusiastic about returning to school. I hope you can get in that advanced English course with that teacher that really appreciates you. I hope you can find a way around the transportation problem.

    That video IS interesting, thanks.
