    I don't feel the same away about it anymore, after having had really bad teachers from Yr 7-11, including one teacher who didn't know what GCSE's were :sigh:

    I start school on Wednesday (enrol on Tuesday)
    haha oh dear :facepalm: i like majority of my teachers but i guess it matters a lot more if they like you

    I am probably being really naive, but I can't wait to get started on a good foot, and really work hard.
    Is that weird?

    What's your opinion on abortion?



    (Did I take it to the next level too quickly?)
    Just a bit there. :P I personally don't agree with abortion as he/she is a potential life which will develop their own personality. It seem cruel to take it away. I understand that scientists say that in the first few weeks it's painless, but it's a life that could go on to do great things.

    However, there are difficult situations when it comes to this topic. Disabilities and medical issues can pose a big problem, but it can work out. I remember watching a documentary on a couple who have dwarfism who went on to have four children, only one was passed on the genes, but they all lived a prosperous life and the children didn't mind the situation they were in. Their parents where still "normal" parents to them.

    Then comes the issue of rape, but I believe the child can be given up for adoption. This can be risky as many people say adoption is either hit or miss for the child, but it's better to give them a chance in my opinion.

    It's not that weird

    I decided against picking Maths because it would add alot more unwanted workload upon my other AS subjects (2 essay type)and I probably would have migraines if I tried to revise it (after my Yr 11 exams )

    Not alot of people pick classical civilisation. What attracted you to the subject? :eyebrow:
    I would like to take on an English degree at university and really needed another essay based subject. I think Classical Civilisation is so broad and exciting. I'm particularly looking forward to study the architecture side of it.

    Oh my god, first day of AS levels.

    What. The. Hell.

    Just looking through the pages in my C1/C2 Maths textbook creates a sickly feeling in my stomach. D:

    Is it too late to drop out of Sixth Form and become a rapper instead?
    SAME
    I'm gonna die
    I think I'll become a binwoman

    Wow! You guys are starting Sixth Form quite late compared to mine. I start next week on the 3rd, but I'm really excited because I got into the Sixth Form I wanted to and I just love the subjects I'm going to take.

    I wasn't expecting quite a thought out response as the one given, but it looks great - your views create a good standpoint for me to discuss this with you.

    However, the idea of a soul is one you seem to have circumvented. The mother goes through a lot of strain in the 9 months leading up to childbirth, the birth itself, and then caring for the child while it's still a (cute) little infant. A lot of physical, emotional, and physiological pain. All by herself.

    And I believe she has the right to ask for an abortion if she should wish. I'm not saying that it should provide an alternative to contraception, but I'm saying I'd prefer the law to be slanted in preference of abortion rather than against it.

    This is largely due to my belief in an everlasting soul; that the true Self of the child isn't, or can't, ever be destroyed. In addition, there's the idea of predeterminism which I believe in. If a child is aborted... then it may have been for the best.

    With any luck, I'm surrounded by intelligent people who would welcome my viewpoint rather than instantly shout 'BABYKILLER' as happens on other online communities which I've been a part of.

    An English degree sounds nice and who wouldn't like studying a bit of architecture

    Who wouldn't. I was only the favourite in English, French and ICT (other subjects I didn't have much bond with the teachers as I refused to participate unless asked )

    I'd like to think I was generally liked by most of my teachers. I didn' t talk much and just got on with the work :laugh:
    Liked but not favourite
    What did this 1 teacher have against you? :eyebrow:
    So I'm guessing this other teacher gave you low coursemarks, yet was very friendly with you. Interesting...
