money is a factor :P
i mean, i earned 2 grand over the school years
and now my parents are trying to put it into another savings account
effing *****s!
i mean, how come they even GET access to my freaking account?

Man having experienced schoolies already. once you have a room and booze and 2 boxes of mi goreng you are set man out dont really need that much money for the actual week itself. because i'm assuming your going to the goldie and you would have already got and paid for a room.


advice DONT pace yourself like everyone says man. just get f'd up every night and day.

i graduate next year, accommodation on the gold coast is already booked out for 2009 schoolies.lucky my friend knows people who have an apartment right in the middle of surfers.
#4
As long as you've payed for your accomadation (if you haven't by now you're royally screwed), you don't need that much in the way of money... really, if you're spending 2000 on schoolies that's pretty rediculous.

Where are you going?

O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

Schoolies is a big waste of money. You could easily go to fiji, vanuatu or a cruise for the price you pay for a motel, booze food etc. Getting drunk and stumbling around cavill avenue with 10,000 others trying to score pussy gets old after 2 days.

what is schoolies?

I feel I should know about this.


WAT

Looking at your age, you should be graduating this year, so I can't believe you've never heard of it.

Schoolies week is when the students who have graduated that year go out and party for 1 - 7 days, the Gold Coast (Surfer's Paradise) is the place where most kids go.

Most states finish the school year (for Year 12s) about a week apart from the previous one, so the Queenslander schoolies will head down to the coast first, then NSW, and then Vicoria (I think, they may go at the same time as NSW).

Anyway, the main idea is to celebrate leaving school.

oh, and I'm graduating next year 'cause I had to move down a year when I moved from NZ.

Ahhh ok. I'd advise booking your rooms this year (if you're going), because all the good places to stay get booked out early.

And you'll probably hear a lot more about it closer to the end of the year, and ALL YEAR next year.

1) I had a girlfriend at the time. I had more sex that week than you have probably had your whole life.

2) Your 18

3) You work at a service station.

I suggest you do the world favour and kill yourself, before you can reproduce.

I almost played midnight! I played Starry Night though. Got a 17/20 for my trials because I didn't realise my guitar was in drop D. Fail. And I screwed up in two parts because of it. I screwed up in one part because I realised I was in the wrong tuning (not playing the string though), then when it came to the outro, I tuned it back up to an E in the middle of it. Also, my acoustic guitarist was still in DGDGBE from my earlier performance that I forgot to retune with. I think I got a good mark considering.

yeah; thats a great mark if that happened!

i'm absolutely terrified. its really tough in music, because anything below 93% scaled down last year, and it will be similar this year.... god, 19/20 in every song just to scale up.... jesus christ....

on the plus side, my composition will probably get an encore nomination - fingers crossed.

anyway, im going to bed. if i never log back into UG - i made a mistake and killed myself...

Schoolies was awesome, for about 23 hours.

Then it got very old. Every chick did every guy, and I got my fair share of pussy but with that pussy comes the sobbing in bed after wards cause they 'feel so slutty' only to drink more and give one of my room-mates head to sooth her soul.

The drinking was cool, but i can also do that in my backyard, all of the concerts are 18+ so good luck getting in there unless you already lied on your Schoolies pass application.

The security guards were awesome... and uhm... yeah seeing a dude get stabbed wasn't so awesome... this is all in less than one day there.

It repeated almost exactly the 2nd day...

So I left with a friend of mine and stayed at her place in tally for the remainder of the week, where we got smashed played fetch with her Shetland ponies and had glorious no guilt sex.

Good times
