on english paper 1, we have to write a short story. my topic, (since im not in standard english, im doing the advanced paper) is imaginative journeys. for that, we need a portal into the imagined context. im using a book of quotes as my portal.

its probably different for you, and you could be doing physical journeys or inner journeys, and so you would write your creative writing differently

Was the Advanced English topic this year "Journeys"?
I vaguely remember my teacher saying that's what we'd be doing (I just started year 12).

ohh sorry, i didnt know that adv. had the option of doing physical journeys.

imaginative sucks. its probably more interesting, but i hate shakespeare's 'the tempest'. ive studied like 6 shakespeare plays in highschool, and this is by far the most confusing.

well, you know, in 5 days time, it'll all go away... we never have to take an english exam, read shakespeare or sylvia plath or aldous huxley ever again...

im just glad that in 13 days, i'm going to be sleeping in until 4 in the afternoon and relaxing all night without any guilt....

its going to suck for you guys, since youre the first year to do it. your teachers wont really know what to teach you...
with us, they've been doing journeys since 03, so the teachers had piles of things to give us to make it easier.

it sounds like a boring topic, belonging, too.

Yeah, it starts on Thursday with Business Studies, I have my program here. English 1 is on Friday.
I agree that The Tempest is pretty much the worst Shakespeare play I've read, but I'm doing Coleridge, which is actually pretty piss easy, then The Butterfly Effect and Magdalena by A Perfect Circle for supplementary. You are obviously doing Advanced I see as well, I kinda make up my stories on the spot so I can't help you, and if I can't think, I just use an excerpt from my Extension 2 Major Work.
