Observations about Australia, motivation, and high school.

Way To Know You Live In Australia #1583
The existence of entirely worthless, pointless holidays and the fact no-one dares to even think of cancelling them.

The Gold Coast Show (like a fair or a carnival) is on this week, and tomorrow is Gold Coast Show Day. Yes, we have a public holiday because of it. It's meant to allow people to go to the show, but in reality, most people stay home and sleep in. I don't know a single person who plans on going, and I'd never go near it. Even if U2 were playing there, I'd have to do some serious soul-searching with regards to my attendance. Can you tell I really despise these sorts of things?

You have to talk yourself into standing up to get something you actually want ... and then stay seated for over half an hour before actually getting it.

What did I want to get? My school book, for during lunchtime today, I wrote some observations that shall now be transcribed here.

Anyway. Many things are circulating in my head right now, just waiting to be jotted down on paper or LiveJournal. I'm looking forward to an opportunity to gather my thoughts, if not during the next holidays then definitely after the school year is over. I think that I will learn more over the upcoming summer than I will have learnt in the last few years. The education system is in desperate need of an overhaul in my opinion.
