THINK HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE SAT NEXT TO YOU ON A BUS, TRAIN, WHATEVER. NOW THINK HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE SAT NEXT TO YOU ON PURPOSE, WITH THEIR FINGERS CROSSED IN HOPE THAT YOU’LL TALK TO THEM. I’M SURE SOMEBODY HAS. THERE’S PLENTY OF TIMES WHEN SOMEBODY’S SEEN YOU AND HOPED THAT YOU SPOKE TO THEM, BUT YOU NEVER DID, ‘CAUSE YOU DON’T HAVE THE GUTS, AND NEITHER DO THEY. DON’T GO AROUND THINKING NOBODY LIKES YOU AND THAT YOU’RE NOT LOVED, THERE’S BEEN PLENTY OF TIMES WHEN A STRANGER’S SPOTTED YOU AND THOUGHT “OH THEY’RE JUST MY TYPE,” BUT HAVEN’T HAD THE COURAGE OR CONFIDENCE TO OPEN THEIR MOUTH AND INITIATE A CONVERSATION, THE FUNNY THING IS, NEITHER HAVE YOU.

oh year 12. this is pretty shit, all this nagging.
Assembly? nah! shove it mate. the only times i enjoy school is when a dog gets into the play ground. "theres a dog in the playground! Woohoo! all bets are off! you cant control me. you cant even keep dogs out of the fuckin' playground. REVOLUTION!" Or those dark, mysterious lads that dont go to school at all, turn up like outlaws, moseying on in on their BMX's, gliding across the grass with bogan sneers. "its all a con" i thought. "there are kids out there who dont go to school. they seem alright, in fact, look at em', they're cool! theyre like highwaymen. take me with you"

I have a very bad relationship with the future. We don't get on. We just ignore each other.
I don't really know what "intellectual" means, but if it means you've got a desire to learn, you've got a desire to look for things that haven't been presented to you, then, maybe. I think that "intellectual" is quite an exclusive word. I think it's just for anyone that has a thirst or a hunger to improve themselves, or a yearning to escape from somewhere to get to a better place.
The Thames and the Mersey, the Tyne and the Wear and the Clyde
They spew slums like gravy on the banks of the poisonous tide
What became of the working class?
Nike, Reebok, Adidas
Scratchcards, pitbulls, ecstasy
Eva is just a 16 year old kid.

All things aside, I'm in Year 12 now and with work piling up i am starting to seriously think about shcool, and the education system in general. Please - read this exerpt from article i found. Its presents us with great justification on why todays education system needs to be re-established...
'students are forced into a methodological way of thinking that deprives them of creativity.
Students cannot explore themselves or their creativity with the current schooling system. Rather than being given the opportunity to explore their interests, their talents, and the activities that make them feel happy, students are forced to learn topics and methods that ‒ while beneficial ‒ ultimately deprive them of being creative and finding who they are.'
Remember guys, you can only live life to the full when you're in the moment - the past and present are just distractions. Adios x"
