Anyway, Japanese was pretty easy - but I had learnt for that, so. Well.
Have I mentioned recently that I LOVE English?
Probably, but I can't emphasize it enough. It's just so absolutely brilliant, it's hard to describe.
I'm so sorry for you over there who have to struggle through some particularly bad teachers!
Debate and Speech ... well, I learnt way too much for it. Honestly. I didn't know she considered me a Junior - in the debate I am a Senior, as I am Grade 11, but she considers all Grade 10s Juniors, all Grade 12 Seniors, all 11 without previous practice Juniors, and those with practice Seniors. Pretty confusing, I know, but the test was really easy. Next week we're having a multiple choice test on our next chapter of reading. Should be manageable. And I had my impromptu today!
So I had 2 minutes to prepare a two minute speech... My topic was "That it is more important to see than to hear".
I don't know how I have done, but I don't think I did too badly! :)
(I don't think I've ever mentioned it, but I really feel bad when I have to correct a teacher/a native speaker in regards to their English/grammar. And that happens more often than you think. And yes, I am a grammar Nazi. I'm sorry. For those who don't know the term: 2. a – A person who believes proper grammar (and spelling) should be used by everyone whenever possible. b – One who attempts to persuade or force others to use proper grammar and spelling. c – One who uses proper grammar and spelling to subtly mock or deride those who do not; an exhibitor of grammatical superiority. d – One who advocates linguistic clarity; an opponent of 1337-speak. e – One who corrects others' grammar; the spelling police. ~ Definition from Urban Dictonary. But yeah,it's pretty embarrassing... Although I think I actually have an advantage with having actually learnt English as a second language... :))
And that was everything interesting for today. Hannah, an exchange student from my English course, and I are thinking about taking up Tennis - that would be pretty cool, huh?
And Mum? We have to Skype again, if you haven't already read your mails!
I'm tyding up my room, but just get online and yeah... I'll notice you! :*
I have a serious craving for peanut butter toast/bagel... I am hungry! That's the disadvantage of eating early :/
So guys, one thing left:
My mum's 'forwarding' greetings from a lot of people who say they read my blog, but they don't dare write a comment:
I LOVE comments. Honestly. And there's no such things as embarrassing comments. I'm happy about everything, from a short "Schoener Blog" to a long and thoughtfull comment which I haven't yet received, but don't feel pressured. I'd just love to hear from you!
Or feel free to drop a line into my facebook, or my e-mail (it's email@example.com)
Well, guys, I'm leaving for now. As I have mentioned, I have a room to tidy!
