I just finished my shift at McDonalds and I’m writing a post at 10pm on a school night. Now that’s dedication =D
I had not one but two SACs today. My first SACs. You know, School Assessed Coursework that I told you about in the past posts. They were both pretty easy. So why give them such a scary acronym like “SAC?” Why not just call them “tests”???
Seriously, the Education Department has to stop giving all their test things scary names. “ENTER” or “ATAR” scores as they are now known as. They are the score you get to get you into a uni course. NAPLAN Tests?!? We had them last year – you have them in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in Maths (x2) Reading, Grammar & Spelling and Writing. They were SO easy that it’s not funny. What do they stand for, you ask? National Assessment Program of Literacy And Numeracy. They used to be called AIM Tests, but I guess the scary name makes us students do better.
It was raining insanely hard on the weekend. Long weekend, that I spent studying for two easy SACs. Did I mention I actually got to bring in cheat sheets? Anyways, so far this year in Melbourne, where we are experiencing our worst drought in decades, it has rained over 120mm this year. Compare that to the same date in 2009. 17mm. I love it when it rains, because rain smells really cool, because we need the rain, because I love watching rain. Let it rain more!
I should have either an Album review, a Blog Review or a tips post tomorrow. Or possibly a deep post, who knows.
Waddle On! Lol.
