No but seriously it was fun.
We had assembly, and I couldn’t really talk with my friends because I was a bit late, but we kinda talked with each other during assembly. We also got introduced to the new 8th graders. Awwww. They were dressed differently than we were, but they looked pretty crap. The funny thing about them is that half of them hadn’t realized what was cool at our school: to pull your belt really low down on your hips and pull up your socks. So all of them still had the little things that our belts are supposed to go into and their socks were way down on their ankles.
And anyway, they don’t have to carry a brick around or wear tights. Unfair.
And then the *9th graders* went to the hockey pavilion to get sorted and stuff. Hmm. We were kidding around about it and stuff, but it was still kinda stressing. Kinda. They called me out, and I was standing there in the front while they read a bunch of guys names, and I was like… ‘Dude, aren’t there any girls in this class?!’ and I was right. There are only 6 girls and like 28 guys. I’m in Mr. Kraamwinkel’s class, which is cool, considering I could’ve ended up with meanies that I don’t like like Mrs. Forssman and people like that. But I’m glad I’m at Kr, because we’re a really small class, and already everybody’s like best friends. :)
Anyway, Lezané’s in Mrs. Richmuller’s class, and Christine is with Mrs. Maree. I’m really glad I didn’t end up there.
And here’s my schedule. Fun.
( scheduleCollapse )
Note how many double periods we have, and how much Art and Technical Drawing we have in a week, and how little English we have in a week. Last year it was totally different. Plus those Flexi periods? Duuude. And you have to admit, that that is a monster of a schedule. But I guess it’s nice because it’s kinda constantly changing or something? I dunno.
Today was Tuesday, so it was Day 2. We sat in our Admin class up until break, and then they announced that we were going to have periods 2-6, with the periods being like ten minutes long. Comp was gross, because I got the teacher that I least wanted. TT was kinda cool because I get that at Mr. Kr, and he’s real nice to me. We just sat outside and talked. Rek I have at Mr. Cronje, he’s the guy that rescued me one night. Ha-ha. We just sat around and talked too, because he handles the textbooks of the school and he was running around the whole time. Art we have at Mr. Van Den Berg. He’s cool, everyone knows that. He’s always making jokes, but I never liked him much. But I don’t think he’ll be as bad as last year’s teacher…! And uh Maths we have at Mrs. Ferreira. I don’t know her either, but she’s kinda nice. And then we went home.
I have a bunch of teachers that I don’t know. I only know a small bunch of them, and most of them have moved classes, so we have like no clue where to go. As Elizabeth said today while we were searching for Rek, “Can’t we just sit down somewhere? We’re wandering around like a bunch of freshmen!” Hahaha. Inside joke, I guess. :)
New teachers that I know of are for LV, where we actually have two teachers, dunno their names, and in Biology and N/S…Tjaart van der Walt, I think. Hmm…haven’t seen either yet. I hope it’s that student that we had last year in Biol, he was sooooo nice. Oh and, I have another one in English. Ms. Jacobs. She’s Gerard’s brother’s girlfriend, and she can’t speak any English, yet I have her for that particular subject. :/
I got my results from my finals. I did pretty okay, considering that it was a final and all.
( ResultsCollapse )
I don’t think that’s too bad.
And I bought a bunch of my textbooks today after school (missed my damn soapies, the queue was so long!). They didn’t have Maths, so I only got an English Manual, Technical Drawing thing, Nature Sciences thing, History/Geography. They’re really thin (not like last year), and they cost R176 altogether. The cool thing is that if they’re in mint condition at the end of the year we just get to sell them back at the school and get our money back. Last year we couldn’t do that. It’s better that way too, because my textbooks are filled with random drawings and highlighted all over.
I have a test tomorrow, which absolutely SUCKS. Plus we have a new system thing that if you fail any test, you sit detention for 3 hours. !!! usually it was just like and hour and half…:[
Oh the people in my class that I know are: Nico, Ryno, Rheinhard, Jean, Coenrad (but not my friend), Johan, Johan, Natania and Esmarie. I just pray that I don’t have to sit close to Nico in anything like last year, because he used to get me into soooo much trouble, lol. :)
Oh and the last post using sms_to_lj wasn't me being all gay. Really. I was too tired to do anything, so I gave my cellphone to someone and told them to type. It cost me a lot of money...usually an SMS is only 75c at most, but this one cost more than R4. That's a Coke I could've bought!
