Interesting. I never wondered what I would write about if this happened.
Here’s some random stuff instead.
The road would be long. He knew he had to finish. Time was passing by him. Quickly. How could he overcome himself? Another second passed. What would he do? What could he do? He knew he couldn’t fall back into the past. He couldn’t fall behind. He had to stay ahead of everything. But he was falling behind. What could he do? How could he maintain the equilibrium of his life? There was no equilibrium. He had to start doing work or the work would be soon devouring him. But how? He was so unfamiliar at eating the elephant a bite at a time, instead of swallowing it whole. Why was it so hard to do something so simple? Why couldn’t he learn to be consistent. Time was catching up to him. There was so much work to be done. It was not procrastination, it was not completing the work at all.
No he was not stressed, but anxious. He was just lazy, yet hard working at the same time. He would always try to remain positive, yet he himself did not know how he felt.
Wellbeing level: 0/0
He was on a train. Outside he saw another train moving past him. How could he tell whether it wasn’t his train that was moving, but the other train. The train he was on was fast relative to others, but others told him to keep going faster.
He did not want to burn out. His train was was a secondary cell, not a primary cell.
On the railway he could see the elephant. His train’s speed was exponentially increasing in the direction of the elephant.
He could not derive what would happen next.
The elephant would not move out of the way.

I was intently reading over chemistry revision while Mrs Mason was speaking.

“Alright we have different a definition of distraction.”

“I’m happy that you told me what I did wrong. But you didn’t really tell me what I did right.” – Julian to Miss McClimens
“I googled Shannon homeless article and found out Elise Elliot is related to Tom Elliot. They’re husband and wife!” – Maddie
“Do you think they sit around and just write articles?” – Miss McClimens
“Yeah trashy ones.” – Maddie
“That bad article writing must have rubbed onto each other.” – Julian
There was nothing much to record today, as most of the class were having their own conversations.
“Physics is going to be filled with lots of informative discussion.” – Ethan
“I’m hoping to finish the lesson today.” – Mrs Cho
“Are you looking forward to parent teacher interviews?” – Matt Kaye
“Not really. You know how many students I have? Over 70. I have all my slots filled up and 2 of my lunch breaks filled up.” – Mrs Cho
“What are you going to say for our physics class?” – Matt Kaye
“It will be the truth and based on your marks.” – Mrs Cho
“Darren you have to help me put some quotes in.” – Joseph
“I can’t. There’s no quotes, there’s no physics class.” – Darren
“This is the worst double physics period I’ve ever had in my life because I did absolutely nothing.” – Julian
The class today was basically filled with ‘informative discussion’ throughout the whole 2 periods. I think special relativity is getting to people.

Hello Mr Chapman if you’re reading this then you’re a wonderful person. If you’re not reading this you’re still a wonderful person.

“Do you think Bill is a incarnation of your son?” – Julian

“At those speeds you get length contraction (physics special relativity)” – Julian
“You know Bill’s brain is very small because of length contraction.” – Julian
“Stamp them(anti-derivatives) under your specialist feet.” – Mr Woolfe *Starts stomping*
The Cambridge text book severely stuffed up the order of the antidiff chapter, making it harder for students to understand.
“Cambridge specialist twits you’ve been smoking. This is the stupid ridiculous Cambridge textbook. This is all Cambridge’s fault for combining these two concepts into one exercise. They’re the ones who are smoking.” – Mr Woolfe

“I know you can all sing.” – Mr George
Infront of Jezz and I, there were 5 Year 7 boys sitting in the span of 3 seats. They kept moving around and talking; it was pretty distracting. When they continued to muck around, good old Mr Davidson did the right thing and told them off and moved one of them to a different spot.
Kathryn introduces the next performer.
She is immediately interrupted by a thunderclap of applause from the audience.
PS: Shout out to James O’Neill because I spelt his name wrong yesterday lol.

“You can learn how to fix things around your house on YouTube.” – Mr Woolfe
“When I open YouTube I don’t know what to do” – Mrs Mason
“You can look at any of my 400 mathematical videos I’ve uploaded.” – Mr Woolfe
“What are you going to do on the holidays Micah?” – Mrs Mason
“I’m going to conquer the world.” – Micah
Micah first step was to sit on three chairs which are stacked vertically
“Are you starting by sitting on three chairs?” – Mrs Mason
Micah gives the thumbs up.
The bell rings. Micah starts to dismantle his throne.
“Let’s pray while Micah unconquers the world.” – Mrs Mason
“Where’s Iain Ding?” – Mrs Cho
“He’s at home sleeping.” – David Lee
Iain walks into the classroom and the class cheers for him.
“Ding you sit here. Julian you sit next to Ding.” – Mrs Cho

“Yeah sure. I didn’t know you were allergic to chocolate.” – Mrs Cho
Darren comes back with 2 boxes of sushi. He’s not allergic to chocolate.
Mrs Cho keeps addressing Iain as ‘Ding’.
“Ding? Iain. Not Ding.” – Mrs Cho to herself while offering Iain an Easter egg.
There is a lot of ‘informal discussion’ in class.
“I’m very sure that some of you are going to make mistakes. I know this because these people are not listening and will be penalised for it.” – Mrs Cho
“In Year 7 Mr Wong made us watch a death row documentary for our ‘class party.’ There was blood and stuff, it was disgusting.” – Jesse
“I’ll explain particle collision theory it this way. Recall back to the Year 10 Formal. So you have boys on one side and girls on the other. Micah what’s with that face? You need to collide with the correct orientation. So when you collide with someone head-on, you look into their eyes and then love at first sight. If you collide back to back, wrong orientation so no reaction. So if you’re running around keen and excited, you’ll collide with enough energy and enough collisions and couples will be formed.” – Mrs Mason
“Whats wrong with this computer? It always restarts when I use it.” – Mrs Mason bangs on the keyboard with frustration
The computer shuts down while Mrs Mason is mid-sentence explaining more about the rate of chemical reactions.
“Do we want cake?” – Mrs Mason
“Since Joseph needs to eat more vegetables, I baked a carrot cake for you guys.” – Mrs Mason
“Why can’t you just make another cake.” – Anton
“Why am I met with criticism when I take time to bake a cake for all of you? Anton, I feel for your children. One day they’ll get back home and say ‘I scored a 95% on the test’ and you’ll reply ‘Why didn’t you get 98%.’” – Mrs Mason
Mrs Mason starts cutting and handing out the cake.
“Anyone allergic to anything?” – Mrs Mason
“I’m allergic to food. I photosynthesise.” – Makar
“Neil that was almost a knife to your face.” – Mrs Mason when handing our the cake.
“The more you learn, the less you understand. Neil’s doing it right.”
“Micah are you listening to this? This is how you can conquer the world.” – Mrs Mason
Makar says something very interesting about career advisers.
“Makar, Mrs Higgins is a careers advisor.” – Mrs Mason
“Wait don’t put that in your blog, I like Mrs Higgins.” – Makar
“If we lower P values we can have less spaztic VCAA…” – Makar
“Makar.” – Mrs Mason
“I don’t like VCAA.” – Makar
“What do you call something if it’s to the power of something?” – Makar
“To the power of.” – Julian
“Sorry, we haven’t gotten to powers in Further.” – Makar
“Julian do you still take ADHD pills?” – Makar

Talk goes back onto the topic of particle collision theory.
“Special relativity. If you’re moving faster everything else is moving slower.” – Joseph
“That’s why when you meet the love of your life they say time moves more slowly. Special relativity.” – Mrs Mason
“We don’t do this at Waverley, but back to the Year 10 Formal: A catalyst would be like lowering your standard of acceptability, which would make you more likely when you collide into someone to go ‘ooh hello’ because you’ve lowered your standards.” – Mrs Mason
“Does that mean alcohol is a catalyst?” – Makar
“Yes, but as I said, we don’t do this in Waverley.”
Micah was balancing his pens and David toppled them down.
“Why did you do that?” – Micah
“I’ve never seen Micah so fired up before.” – Mrs Mason
“It’s beautiful.” – Micah
“I’ve had enough of English, I’m going back to Chinese.” – Makar
“I’m sad.” – Joanna
“Why are you sad?” – Mrs Mason
“Because there’s a small rip on my chemistry book.” – Joanna
“That’s sad.” – Mrs Mason
