MYP visit & Wai-sun’s Monty Python fest! ^_^

Very busy Monday/Tuesday this week. First up, I had a Medway Youth Parliament visit to the Houses of Parliament. The group set off at 8.45am by coach to Westminster Abbey. We arrived about an hour late, but met briefly with Paul Clark before beginning our tour of the Palace of Westminster. We walked through the […]

Trigonometric Identities

Oh joy. Oh yes. It’s another awful maths post, so feel free just to skip right over this. I only type these things up because it’s actually really good revision. It actively encourages me to think about the maths, and I’m likely to see it again when I log in. So without further adue: Basic […]

And so half term approaches…

Usually I would look forward to half term, but for these final 8 weeks of school I’m going to have to just saddle myself down and ride it out. I mean, once I’m in University it’ll be a complete change and a chance for a relatively fresh start, regardless of where I go. And providing […]

One more thing I hate…

…people chewing with their mouth open… *shudder*. It drives me places I’d rather not talk about… Okay, that was just an extension of yesterday’s quiz really.

Hmmm. Moving on… […]

Busy week…

Last Saturday I went bowling with some friends, moving on to Rochester where we bought baked goods and sweets from an old fashioned candy store, and finally onto Wai-sun’s house (whose party it was). We played on her dancemat for a while and watched Spaced in the evening, which was utterly weird, mainly because I […]

Birth Month Meme

I will write about Wai-sun’s part(ies) and the Sakura evening tomorrow night hopefully… Stolen from ‘‘ RULES: 1. Put your birth month in an entry. 2. Strike out anything that doesn’t apply to you. 3. Bold the four that best apply to you. 4. Put all twelve months under a livejournal cut. APRIL: Active and […]

‘The Barley Method’

Ho ho ho. Mr. Barley has done it again. Provided an interesting maths lesson? Yes. Made me laugh? Yes. But this time we got the added bonus of the (hopefully to be patented) ‘Barley Method’ ^_^. While I’m quite sure this method isn’t absolutely original, his deliverance and confidence can’t be faulted on the idea. […]
