Step one, you say we need to talk

"An apostrophe is the difference between a company that knows its shit, and that knows it's shit".

The above quote is so freaking true. Like, when people mess up their apostrophes, it kills me. Honestly, it's so annoying and totally changes the meaning of what they're saying. Cray cray. Anyway, one of our English language teachers put this on the board today to see how many people got it. Not many is the answer you're looking for. This teacher is so cool. He can't teach for shit but he's a cool person. When I had him in year seven, we all used to go out of our way to annoy him, which I now understand was unnecessary and bitchy. Everybody still hates him and, to be fair, he is really annoying. He wears the same clothes every day and looks really unclean and mumbles and can't control a class. But he just doesn't care what anyone thinks. He's so passionate about books and plays and is really interested in culture. He runs chess club and plays in a jazz band in Soho clubs too. You can youtube that - the band is called Alice in Grooveland.

Anyway, he's coooool. I got thirteen pieces of homework this week though. Is it kind of weird I'm looking forward to doing them? I only have six left, wahay! Oh and today the best thing happened. Outside our history classroom, waiting for the teacher, my two friends, Josh and Eliza, and I had an impromptu acapella session. We were just harmonising and actually sounded like gospel singers. Let me tell you, I'm the worst singer ever so this is saying something. We did 'How to Save a Life' by the Fray so it's been stuck in my head ever since.

Ahh, it's been such a good day! However, I've been cold for about three days straight. Need to layer the blankets on top of my duvet I think. And wrap up on the way to school; need to dig out my parka.

lalalalalalala, happy daiz!

Song von den Tag:

How to Save a Life - The Fray


  1. Oh my gosh! My english teacher sounds like the twin of yours! He is so freaky, every time he takes the register he goes "Lucy, mari, kiiiiiiiiiiiimberley" like, seriously what?! And he wears the same brown outfit all the time (though because of our wacky out of control class, he's made it his new year's resolution to wear more colours!)
    But i actually do really like him because he is quite sweet even if he is reeeaallyy weird sometimes.

    1. Haha maybe they're brothers! He recently taken to calling me "Kate mate"?! Aw, that's really sweet. I don't think our teacher would change his famous brown suit for anything x
