Still throwing around the idea of college this year. If I do decide to go, classes start September 7th. My current job at this provincial park ends September 10th, but I've banked enough days to take off just in case. It's really a toss up because I can save a few thousand dollars if I wait one more year, as I am in a particular government program. With every $1000 I put in they put in $500. The longer I wait, the more I save, but I don't want to wait too long. I'm still making money while I wait to add on top of that.



Also, since I'm of Metis descent I can potentially have all of my schooling, room & board paid for by the federation. They're having a meeting to decide which people they will choose out of the many, many applicants. If I was chosen then I would definitely wait a year, if need be, to save a hell of a lot of money.



I'd be excited to go back to school again. It'd be like a vacation, as I would finally be choosing what I want to learn, and enjoying every minute of it :thumbsup:

I also found out it's £19 to apply to uni next year - scamming little [cabbage].


It's about 50-75 dollars here. Be happy.

I don't know if I'm excited about it or not.


You should be. It'll be fun and new. But let me tell you: this year will suck balls, especially compared to how awesome the rest of high school will be. Enjoy it as best you can.

I think I start classes on the 24th and it will be the first time in a while that I'm taking classes monday thru friday. Not super excited about that but you have to do it every once and a while especially after a semester where I only had two classes to attend rest were online. I'm thinking about trying out for the men's club soccer team this year because I miss playing but I don't know if I will have time for it. I'll also be going on my junior year at Arizona State University! half way done! Also just moved into a house with my brother, a good friend Matt, and another friend Sarah. Should be a pretty fun year. Still waiting for the internet dude to come to our house today so I don't have to steal wireless from some neighboring house.

Freshman year at my school sucks because there are no honors classes, though that means everything is pretty easy. It was a pretty good year though, since I somehow got a great combination of teachers.

And I wouldn't worry too much about having few friends going in. If your school is anything like mine, you have people from a variety of middle schools coming in who don't know each other, but people make friends fast. Hell, even I made a few new friends.

I found out I go back September 8. That sounds kind of late. Not only compared to you guys, but compared to normal. Of course we'll get out rather late too.

the next college year starts on the 4th of September for me



I get my AS results on the 20th (which is I assume when I do the enrolment for the A2 courses + the GCSE resit I've got to do), then I've got to do the UCAS stuff in Sept/Oct... ugh the next few months are gonna be stressful. Being a bit of a boring/crap summer too apart from the fact I turned 18 yesterday, ugh... (but this is going off topic a bit)

I start uni around the beginning of October, so i've got a few months left of nothing-ness.



I really wish i could go back to secondary school, looking back on it, it was so much fun and much more free than you think at the time.

You start on my birthday. Like half the people on this thread.



As for me, I start the day after my birthday. Senior year.



Schedule looks like this:



Calculus (I hate math, first bell yay.)

AP European History

Accelerated Physics

AP English Literature

Lunch

Bioethics (Second semester: Creative Writing)

Free (Second semester: Mediation)

Spanish IV



I want to drop Spanish, I only need three years for college and if I want to continue it at uni I can. Then I can also have last bell off year-round :D

I start two days after my birthday. Well, I guess 3. My birthday's the 21st, I start the 24th. Late August birthdays can really be lame. Especially when your parents put you in school a year early so you're about 2 years younger than the kids in your grade.



Or, in some cases, up to five years ...

Duuuuuude why are you only 2 days older than me...? (Seriously, what's with all the people starting on each others' birthdays? I don't think anyone's said they're starting on mine yet though)

I'm fine with being one of the youngest in my grade. It's a nice excuse for when you suck at things, and it makes bragging even better when you're good.

The first day is really sneaking up on some of you, isn't it? It's going to sneak up on me too...But I have 3 weeks left. :thumbup:

I'm hoping to double major in Studio Art and Creative Writing.




I'm guessing studio art is a focus on photography, right?


Well studio art can be drawing, painting, photography, etc. It's just the practical art classes rather than art history or something. I will be focusing on drawing.

I just graduated so I won't be going to school next year, but for those of you who are going - good luck. The budget cuts really impacted our school big time last year. They couldn't pay for substitute teachers. If your teacher was absent, you went to the auditorium along with all the other classes with absent teachers so it would get extremely crowded - and on top of that, it was supervised by only two adults. It was a circus in there. I can't imagine how bad things will get if schools lose even more funding than that.

We were in a similar situation last year (and probably will be this year). We're building a new building - I think I mentioned that - and it's ridiculously expensive, I think it's going to be the most expensive public high school in Massachusetts. Anyway, this meant we had to cut substitute teachers, but it really wasn't that bad. If your teacher wasn't there and they couldn't find a sub, you had to go to the cafeteria and sign in. Freshmen were supposed to stay in the cafe, but no actually did, most ran off. Whenever I had a cancelled class, I would go to the computer lab and play random games or even come on here. :P

So for us, a cancelled class equaled a free block. And everyone loves free blocks. ;)

I just realized I'm kind of excited that I'll have actual frees this year. The way my schedule used to be (before I had to add drafting and switch around a few other courses), on Tuesday I was going to be able to leave at 11:30, opposed to 2:30. :<img src=:' /> (I think I still have a free last block though, so at least I'll get out an hour early)
