Since posting lists is just so piss easy, requires almost no effort from my behalf and fills this page up quite nicely; I’ve decided to continue with the popular “LET’S GO MEGA HAPPY FUN FUN YEAR 12 SURPRISE TIME SUPER FUN BONANZA!” theme.

**View the original here**

So, without further ado….

“You know you’re in year 12 when…”

  1. you actually wanted the super-collider to blow up the Earth for one day so that the English SAC would be postponed
  2. you get all excited when the Education section of the Age has something which you can actually benefit from (i.e. the exams guide, or a textual analysis)
  3. you have brought your study notes into the toilet before so as to not waste any precious study time
  4. the younger kids ask why you get to go home so early, you say you get heaps of spares in year 12, and they think year 12 is awesome because of that, and you think they’re idiots because of that etc.
  5. you get that special feeling after an English SAC, which makes you feel like you wrote nothing ‘useful’ at all
  6. you get your English SAC back without a conclusion and still manage to get A+ and think, “what the fuck happened there?”
  7. your English teacher(s) become one of your best friends
  8. you think that putting up (HW) or (study) tags or any other variation in your MSN’s personal message makes you l33t…
  9. …when in fact you aren’t really studying at all and really just camping your computer, fingers ready respond to your friend’s outrageous Youtube link with “OMG Lolz pr0ns!1” or “ZOMFG sif rick roll lolol”
  10. you try and scab any vaguely useful sources of information related to any of your VCE subjects from the internet when the opportunity comes by
  11. you have a designated “study playlist” or something similar in your iTunes
  12. house activities seem even more pointless then they already are
  13. you get that awesome feeling knowing you’ve beaten your friends in a SAC..you horrible person
  14. your friend’s reaction to your smelly fart before the English SAC is “Never came poison from so sweet a place”, and it’s freaking hilarious
  15. you visit ign.com or flick through a gaming magazine, and shed a tear because you know you won’t be able to play those games until the end of the year, you silly geek!
  16. your typical daily routine consists of: sleep, do stuff at school, study – repeat.
  17. you experience so many mixed feelings approaching the end of the year; hope, relief, anxiety – none of which are truly dominant among the rest

I realise there’s a lot about English SACs on there. The reason being because it’s pretty much all that’s been on my mind this whole week, and it was our last English SAC. LAST SAC. I mean, man when’d you expect to hear that?

Yeah…I’m freaking tired as hell at the moment, just like all Thursdays; day starts at 7 in the morning and ends at 10 at night because I’m out all day.

More to come.

    I mentioned number 1 many times, sometimes substituting the SAC for something larger and more daunting, like the entire exam period… I’m still disappointed that armageddon hasn’t arrived… although I’ve bookmarked http://hasthelargehadroncolliderdestroyedtheworldyet.com/ in case someone up there sees fit to grant my wishes!
