So this is a new feature I’m going to be doing. I’ll post every Wednesday about what’s happening with my life, and sometimes it will relate to reading and writing.
This year, I’m in year 11. Which for all you Americans is junior year (I think?). Anyway, my second-last year at school, and I am simultaneously this:
But seriously, I’m REALLY excited for this year. My subjects are as follows:
Society and culture
Studies of religion
Do you notice something about that list? NO MATHS. NO SCIENCE. I AM FREE. Bye bye, silly subjects!
I’ve also got amazing teachers and great classes this year. Basically, I’m excited!!
What I’m reading at the moment:
– Fellowship of the Ring (for school)
– The One and Only Jack Chant by Rosie Borella (for review)
What I’m writing at the moment:
– This blog post (ha!)
– A second draft of my WIP, The Daisy List
Books I’ve read recently:
The Intern by Gabrielle Tozer
Shift by Em Bailey
The Key to the Golden Firebird by Maureen Johnson
What I’ll be blogging about next:
– The recent Harry, Hermione and Ron fiasco, and why books belong to their readers
Right so anyway, back to school.
It’s going to get more hectic for me this year. Year 11 means that next year I’ll be doing my HSC. Next year I’ll also be an adult.
But it’s okay. I’ll still refuse to tie my shoelaces. I love school for so many different reasons: I love the people, I love learning, I love the teachers who are all so supportive, and I love the community. I go to a nerd school (Penrith Academic Selective High School as titled by the snobby principal – we nickname it PASHS). Going to a nerd school means that we have a giant chess set and also that the biggest behavioural problem is hacking the school computers or creating homemade tasers. It’s a fun place.
What with school coming back, I’m going to have less time to read. In fact I’m going to have less time for everything. But on the weekend, I got the chance to create an awesome blog button, which you can grab here:
And it’s all thanks to Cait Drew’s tutorial on how to make a blog button. Thanks, Cait!
Maybe, when it gets further into the year, I’ll be looking for a co-blogger. But right now, I’m just glad to see my school friends again and start working on projects that interest me and make me more aware of the world in general.
And that’s it for the first Loony’s Musings. I’ll be back next Wednesday to talk about my part-time job, and why it helps with writing!
