Who Likes The Getup Kids? :)

I’m not the kind of person who is so self-indulgent that they talk only of themselves and I find it very difficult to write a blog about myself and well…opening up to a word document.

I received strange looks of judgement and just weirdness today as I pulled out Hamlet on the morning bus and decided to knock over two more scenes to ponder for the remaining of the journey.

The remainder of the morning I spent in rage in my religion class. I honestly cannot wait to leave school. I can actually feel my blood flow rise as the teacher preaches that “I don’t like the study of philosophy because it puts people’s beliefs into categories”. Now, I’m quite a lover of philosophy and understanding different perspectives to try and gain further understanding of the human psyche so I don’t speak, I close my mouth and recited Shakespeare lines (anything to just get me thinking of something else). I don’t understand how she can say that….she categorises herself as a Christian and doesn’t stone people for blasphemy…so identifying herself with that religion but not accepting all of it makes her not a “true Christian” yet she identifies herself with it because MOST of the stuff Christianity preaches she believes…but I could go on forever so enough of that.

I had History at mid-day. It also makes me kind of mad because we are focusing on local history. I come from Brisbane, Australia. It used to be a small country town…there has been no uprisings, no revolutions, nothing remotely interesting has happened except the council’s massive arguments about which type of stone to build the city hall with. Sure, learning about local history is important…but they should make it a grade 8 or 9 topic. I’m in grade 12, in my opinion we should be learning about the whole Libya and Bahrain issue. That’s important and it’s happening right now. (Again my disgust with the self indulgence).

The rest of the day was pretty average, nothing exciting, I drove myself home and then proceeded to write this. One thing exciting that has happened is (well two things)

1) I’m seeing The Getup Kids concert tomorrow night
2) I pre-ordered “The Fault in our Stars” by John Green :)

I hope all you guys are doing well and I will write again tomorrow!
