    Really!? There's no way on this planet I could do that.

    Haha, nothing wrong with going for a cheeky bowl and getting pizza at Sainsbury's every lunch.

    My hair has always been really light and blonde, but like July '12 me and my mate (who also has blonde hair) thought it would be hilarious to dye our hair ginger... It wasn't that funny, and the ginger just wouldn't fade out of my hair, so I had no choice but to dye it brown...

    Fast forward a few months (October '12) and it's starting to fade and my roots are grey.. So I decided to re-dye it, but it went black... :rolleyes: Excuse my disgusting hair.. but this is what it looked like. My mouth is so weird again..

    Attachment 241907

    I kept getting my hair cut regularly up until May '13 when it had faded, and I wanted a drastic change in my hair... So I got it cut shorter than I had ever had it before - although it was still quite long - and it just happened to be blonde after I got it cut.

    Haven't had it cut since. The reason it looks a bit dark in that picture next to my Year 7 picture is because it's still wet.

    That was so much longer than it needed to be..

    Train tickets on your door I do the same with mine. They're such a funky colour :3

    I have PEP tomorrow (blee), then Maths, followed by Supervised Study so I REALLY hope I get work in Maths to do, then Geography and History in the afternoon. I have nice teachers for the latter two, so I'm happy

    Haha everyone says that, they're only 35 minutes long. It would seem that the majority of people have longer ones as all the new girls at my school were so confused by how you fit 9 periods in one day

    What are people allowed to do during enrichment periods? Is it set up for you (like a set list of stuff to do) or can you choose you own things?

    What are you lot thinking of doing during enrichment?

    We have the periods to our own, but for the first two days we are able (and we have to at some point) go to an 'enrichment fair' where we go and see all the activities they offer

    Well they must exist, and it seems that a lot of language graduates do fall to teaching because they seem aware of the other options available.

    Oh wow, he sounds amazing! Maybe a bit psychotic and scary at the time, but teachers with personalities really are the best. It makes their lessons much more interesting and memorable.

    Haha no, it's certainly the better - your hair in particular!
    Yeah I guess that's true. Plus (it might just be the teachers I've had/seen) I think language teachers seem to be the most enthusiastic teacher - apart from Physics teachers, bless 'em.

    He was amazing! When we had our first lesson with him he made us wait outside, and before we were allowed in he said he wanted to tell us something. All he said was, "If you're one of those kids that likes to go up to teachers and shout, 'Sir! Sir! Look what I've done! Are you proud of me?', I don't give a ****. In you go."

    Yeah, his personality was great. If we ever got too loud in class he'd just stick on some classical music and blast it as loud as he could. He used to teach Music at my school, but soon stopped and just did Science. He must be around 27 now. I'd love to see him again. I remember in our last 5 lessons with him he booked computer rooms, and he just let us do whatever we wanted. During the year he also put everyone's name into a hat, and every Friday, two names would get pulled out, and those two people would have a week to prepare a 5 minute presentation on anything scientific of their choice. Sorry if I'm going on.. It's just the more I say, the more I remember about this guy.

    Quentin Harper, you're the man, dawg.

    Thanks, but I really don't like my hair.

    Oh lord I hope our school don't dictate our activities, knowing how bad they are at doing everything else it will be the worst possible scenario

    I have double maths, double biology and then double mandatory PE... although I think as it's the first day of lessons we don't actually have to do anything but but choose a sport for the term in PE
    Wow still have to do PE in sixth form, I'd hate that. I barely have space for a PE kit.

    Oh really? I think there's quite a few people taking it at mine, it was extremely popular at GCSE I don't think I've even heard of CCEA before, I presume from your posts it's an Irish exam board?
    Nope, Northern Irish so it comes under JCQ (but it's not an English board like Edexcel or AQA). I think they do Junior and Leaving Certificates instead of GCSEs and A levels in Ireland. They definitely have to do a wider variety of topics in History from the renaissance to modern stuff like the cold war, but in less depth, I think.

    Oh I see - what part of the South are you from/ where are you from now?
    I'm from Cavan but I can't remember it at all. We kept moving around because mom and dad kept getting reassigned to new hospitals. And as for where I am now...somewhere in Fermanagh and that's as much as I'll tell you

    Me too But I don't think my school will take it too seriously and we'll probably just play badminton or go to the gym, which won't be too bad.

    It's not all that bad tbh. It's only once a week and it keeps you healthier than you would be if you didn't do it
