So, a few days ago, I got asked to come back into my old high-school and tell a bunch of snotty 15-16 year olds that math is important. Stupidly, I said yes. I ended up walking around my old high school for a few hours since I got there stupidly early. I spoke to a few of my old teachers, saw what was new, all that crap. While waiting around, I managed to see some shitty small poster thing for not to do crime. It's hard for me explain it.. so luckily I got a picture.
I then decided to go for a piss. The bathroom was a weird greyish white, and smelt like.. well... piss. (duh) but while I was pissing, I noticed to see this scribbled on the wall;
Wow, this guy was a genius :facepalm:
So after I gave this shitty speech to the kids about why math is important, I decided to visit my friends in their new college. It looked pretty good, I managed to get a picture of some library shit they're building.
So, my day was pretty good. Questions?
Plus that school looks funky as. My Primary school (when I moved there in the last year from London) had no walls between classrooms and was white, minimalist.
You work it out. I never got my head round it.
Realised what a bunch of morons the majority of people are in that school (our year was good, the ones below us were chavs).
Decided that I didn't want to be like that, and got my head down for some hardcore working.
Got the grades I needed for college.
Went to college, got into Uni.
Now all that's left is to do well here, get myself a good career lined up and live my dream Can't fuckin' wait!
Colleges are typically smaller and feature less extensive course programming. Some however offer many of the same first and second year classes as a University at significantly reduced tuition costs, so many people (Myself included) choose to complete the first year of their chosen degree at a college to save money. After the conclusion of one or two years of study, one typically transfers to Uni to finish the remainder.
Good for you, trx. I wish I would have figured out what you did while I was still in high school.
Trust me, slacking off and utilizing <10% of your potential in high school, then having to start from the bottom and fight your way into an engineering program that you should have received a full scholarship for is NOT the ideal way to experience life. And even so, I still consider myself lucky to have the raw ability to at least partially rectify my situation as quickly and easily as I did. Most people who follow my original path end up working in a dead end job for the rest of their natural lives, or worse. Stay in school kids.
They mean different things in the UK than in the US.

University - 18 to 21 years old (excluding gap year), (Degree)
I completely forgot that trx is in the UK.:facepalm:
Yeah, I figured you had overlooked that bro. I asked Remade the same question once in TS but I figured I would wait for one of the Limeys to answer instead of fucking it up myself. :thumbsup:
And while I was in there, I managed to see a box that had this on there...
Uh, yeah. I was slightly surprised, since this isn't even a catholic school! I joke, of course, as you can see Ass. is shorted, but I don't know what it's shortened for. Either way, it's quite funny.
I'll get more next Friday
Community colleges in the USA.
I have a question for you Americans: How does someone learn a trade (such as carpentry) in th US, is it entirely apprentice based?
You find a caprenter/plumber/electrician who needs a helper/gopher and work your ass off.
Well you got that right :eek:
This Nation is in an odd way. One year we have too many Graduates, the next too many Apprentices. Make your mind up UK!
