Societal Rants ((And yes Oh Sweet Oz I’m back))

So I have been thinking… About all those schoolgirl series ((yes the plural of series is, well… series)) Enid Blyton writes… isn’t it fairly deep because isn’t it how society is? All the prejudice, the judgement, the silent bullying – yeah, that’s our world. If I were there, this is what I would do… I […]

PreCamp

Well, I’ll be heading off tomorrow. No phones, no books allowed, even. Just sleepless hours staring up at the ceiling and tent… ceiling? Underside? For two whole nights. Or so I’ve heard from my seniors. Two nights of emptiness, two nights of living hell. Well, wish me luck, you awesome people. I’ll be back to […]

Last Day of Term – and a Cross Country to top it all off!

The term really did fly. One moment I was ranting about my mean teacher, the next I’m used to it and the first quarter of the year has passed. Let me put it this way: Term One: January to March (what I call ‘Winter Term’ even though we have no winter – what a joke!) […]
