This is what I plan to do this weekend! Inspired by Kaileen Elise's Creative Weekend To-Do List, I'm going to allow myself a little 'agenda-less' freedom to stop and listen to myself; to sit, read, eat, bake, watch films and drink wine. I want to take lots of photos, laugh with friends, relax with Daniel, have a long slow breakfast involving poetry and my teapot, and enjoy the sunshine in a pretty dress.
My weekend begins with some blanks! Back to school we go!
1. The best thing about being in school was/is being surrounded by your best friends, gossiping and laughing and falling in love. I didn't realize it then, but it was also great being able to study so many different subjects, and learning so much every day - it's so different when you choose one subject to take on to university.
2. The worst thing about being in school was/is bullies, and peer pressure. But it's an important life lesson I guess!
3. My favorite subject in school was/is English until I dropped it at A level. Then my favourite was music or French literature .
4. One subject I wish I could have mastered/would like to master is biology, or maths. I did maths for a year at A level and by the end of the course I loved it. I found it so hard though, it's the only subject I've ever failed! It took a lot of hard work to get the grade I wanted (an A! :-D) .
5. I could never get tired of studying English literature. Which is silly as I didn't carry on with it past GCSE. But I love it and I don't see why I ever have to stop learning more, so long as I keep reading! .
6. The most memorable teacher I had was Mrs Riddle, my French teacher. Somehow she managed to make GCSE French exciting and fun, and she made amazing cakes, too. She also made me some penis earrings for my last birthday, but that's another story!.
7. If I could choose between going to school for the rest of my life or working for the rest of my life, I'd choose school, which, if we count university as a form of school, may be the way I'm going ;-). Then again, if my dream job comes along, that'd be a pretty cool way to spend the rest of my days.
