Hello all. So something exciting did happen in one of our lives yesterday and not in a good way either. Marthe met with an accident. She was on her way home, minding her own business, cycling away. When, all of a sudden this Auto-dude decides he really really needs to go past her and starts honking away. So,she gets ready to turn. But, just then, this Honda City also decides it wants to turn (obviously not the car, the ppl…duh.)…and then…BAM! Car Stops. Cycle falls. Marthe falls, face down on road. Elbow gets scratched. Teeth get chipped. And stuff hurts (Probably NEway).
So, that was the story of the accident. Now for the aftermath. The next day ie; today, the genius girl figures that almost dying does not count as an excuse to bunk school and comes anyway.She can’t talk or write (Due to the chipped teeth and the elbow) but obviously,that doesn’t matter does it? When she reaches school everyone finds that she makes a most excellent specimen to stare at and make sympathetic noises.Which she does not appreciate. What was I doing at this time you ask?? Well, me being the awesome, called her Cave-woman all day. Seriously, I was quite confused as to laugh or cry. She did look very funny. But you know she had a freakin’ accident, so I was not supposed to be making fun of her and threatening people with ” If you bug me one more time, I will make sure you look like Marthe”..Um..He.. Sorry Marthe, if you’re reading this! So thats what happened today.
No, but something else did also. I guess this will be like a continuation to the Education post…
In our English class, we’re doing this lesson called ‘The Tiger King’ by Kalki. Its supposed to be a satirical piece on Animal Cruelty….I think. Anyway, imagine a teacher trying to explain and define sarcasm!!! I think she said that satire was a way to “ridicule people in a humorous manner”. I mean obviously there are a thousand other ways to ridicule people. We also had the following sentence added to our amazing mental database from where we are to spout these ‘points’ on command:
‘We see politicians like prostrate before their masters to flatter them’
If anybody can, someone please tell me what exactly that is supposed to mean…. I thought I had misheard…but apparently I hadn’t.
We also have these reading and comprehension passages in our exams. They are the most boring part of our paper. We have a bunch of fixed topics; Globalization, the Environment, Global Warming, Child Development ( I’m dead serious.), Religion and Science too once in a while. I don’t even have to think anymore. I just write. Its automated.
Final Conclusion: Study for the exams. Do not actually learn anything. Pass the exams. Goooood.
More Coldplay now, I did go listen to Viva La Vida (the song) again yesterday and I absolutely fell in love with it!!!! Its just Wow!
I used to rule the world,
Seas would rise when I gave the word,
But now in the morning I sleep alone,
Sweep the streets that I used to own.
The rest of the song is even better. I also liked ‘Yes’. If you haven’t heard Violet Hill, Viva La Vida or Yes yet. Shoo! Off with you! Go listen NOW!
