Forwards in Reverse.

So here’s the story till now: My school had decided, in one of their rare moments of generosity, to gift us with a vacation longer than 3 months and 3 days. They gave us a vacation for 3 months and 4 days. And that’s a huge improvement from the regular 1 month 1 day we have usually in May.
But we still had to go to school on most Saturdays, because they still want to make me wake up at dawn while simultaneously ruining my sleep pattern for the week. Yeah, thanks a lot for those.
Besides that I also had to go to a few sessions to prepare for a debate, but those weren’t all that bad.

And then, after that fresh plate of bliss, we move on, beyond the dessert, to the time most dreaded; paying the bill. Well, sort of. I have to go to school again.

There are a few things I’ve learnt in this time, but as with all things that you learn and think, “this is gonna be useful to me someday!”, I ended up forgetting them. Now would be a good time to tell you about a book that I like. It’s a great book, with a nice yellow cover, but I can’t seem to find it. Finding things was never my strong point really. If something of mine was ever lost, I would just speak to the forces of the universe, perhaps to Deep Thought him/herself and then this divine being would make the object magically appear. The only case this has not worked is when I lost my sanity. That time Deep Thought basically said, “No sanity; no service.”

Oh, and the book which I can’t find?
It’s Where’s Wally
