    Some teachers take attendance, some just during the first half of the semester.

I've been to every class but still somehow have been marked absent at least 3 times in the past 8 classes despite sitting right upfront and the teacher knowing who I am, and signing the attendance sheet every day.
    We are apparently not on the same page. I was talking about how my Biology teacher gave out rants against evolution. Your reply was "How does that make sense?"

    Oh right right. Yea, I don't get how it makes sense that someone against evolution would go into biology and then actually get a job.

    Well, after going to my new secondary school for three weeks, I've figured out the persknalities of most teachers, and most of them are pretty unusual.

    First of all, our form tutor, who takes registration, takes care of us, etc, is a bit hyper according to the Year 8s, 9s and most of Year 10s (which is true, since he talks really, really fast). The remaining older girls (and some if the younger teachers) have a crush on this 35-year-old man who is engaged.

    My English Teacher fails at teaching. By that I mean he doesn't teach us anything, but just rambles on about his childhood while all of us are doodling in our diaries. But he somehow makes perverted jokes about Sir Gawain and the Green Knight...

    My Science teacher is Malaysian, and has a funny accent - well, maybe that's a bit obvious.

    My Geography teacher tells us to breathe in and out, in and out, at the start of every lesson, for no reason whatsoever.

    My Drama teacher is insane, past the point of being an actress - I mean, when she's demonstrating characters to us, she exaggerates that character, then suddenly switches to an exaggerated mode of another character without stopping.

    My History teacher is a bit like our form tutor, only he's a bit younger and isn't engaged nor in a relationship. But he is absolutely the funniest teacher ever.

    My Latin teacher is so strict, he's funny without him knowing about it. His way of talking is weird, too.

    You'd expect something from my Art teachers, right? Well, too bad, they're completely normal.

    I see nothing unusual about this.. Theatre people are, pretty much by requirement, outlandish.

    Been working hardcore on my show, we open on Friday. About a week before opening we have what we call our "faculty dress rehearsal" so all the design advisors and professors can view the show and provide some final suggestions and help before it's too late and unsalvageable.. Anyway, today was faculty dress and I was surprised to get a lot of positive feedback from the faculty. The Dean of the school made a point to personally congratulate me and my lighting, which is awesome considering he's won awards and worked across the country.

    It was a nice self-esteem boost, to say the least.

    College count? If so...
    Why do I get nervous when I have to present my work to the class?
    Maybe because I'm scared of showing my work if it's wrong and looking like a doof!

    Is there anyone else out there who refused to go to their prom/graduation party? Social occasions and dressing up in a ballgown just wasn't for me, and even years later I'm happy I chose not to go. (yeah, yeah, I'm an introverted freak of nature)

    But now my uni graduation is coming up, and even though the idea of putting on one of those cheesy robes and hats and standing up in front of my classmates does not appeal to me, my mum keeps pressuring me to go, saying I'll regret it if I don't. What do we think? Should I go just to please her, or should I stick to my guns?

    I'm graduating soon too, and I look at it as my last hurrah with my class. Yeah, it's kind of boring, and we don't even get our diplomas until a month or so later, but it's tradition. It's a nice closure to the years of work.

    Where do you guys like to sit in the class?
    In the front right at the teacher's face or in the back hoping to get away with a few texts?

    I'm a back of the class kind of guy.
    I hate feeling that I have the eyes of few people staring at the back of my head.
    I'd rather be the one with the eagle's eye view!

    Very front row but the opposite side of the teachers lecture stand. I use to be a back-row dweller but I never paid attention so now that I'm actually doing important stuff I find I need to be in the front but I don't like the teacher right in my face.

    Is it bad when your teacher has a stepbrother that also teaches and theyre listening to Party Rock Anthem in between classes? Also I had to sit through a 45 minute talk about respect since some derpy kid asked our bio teacher if she swims in circles. ( her one arm is about 6 inches shorter than the other)

    LMAO! I used to sit in the front but ever since I heard about school shootings, I sit away from the doors so if it ever happens, my classmates bodies will be the one to shield me!

    To be honest, I actually wanted to go to my prom (but not my graduation party, I'd rather spend that with my one best friend who went to a different school). I just wanted a narcisstic moment where I could at least have something to look back on when I'm older. And to see how youthful I was back then I guess. Its weird to say that, but I'm not one for pictures, so these will be the few pictures I'll look back on.

    Anyways, I'm pretty introverted too, so I know what you're coming from. I just started college, but as for your graduation, I would say that college is trying out new things, sometimes which bring you out of your comfort zone. I'm not saying go do some drugs and drink all the time. But these are choices you're going to be making that you might never have again for the rest of your life. I think it is up to you. If you want to go to your graduation as a keepsake for the future-not about your mom's nagging, but for what you accomplished-then yeah, you should go. Just don't go because your mom is making you go.

    I've personally been to college graduation ceremonies, and it is an empowering event in some way because they make you feel like you've accomplished a lot-and you have. The guest speakers are always interesting to hear about. And well. This is often the last chance people truly having before setting out for jobs, grad school, etc.

    Something very awkward happened in Latin class today:

    Teacher: *translates from Latin book* The master eats the food. The masdter falls asleep. [insert other phrases here] The cook sees the slave-girl. The slave-girl pleases the cook. The cook pleases the slave-girl. The cook is very happy.
    *looks up from book* So the slaves are having a little fun themselves while their master is asleep.

    *silence*

    Random Girl: Sir, I have a question.
    Teacher: Yes, what is it?
    Random Girl: Did Ancient Romans have sex in their dining rooms?

    Started going back to school, and dayum, I'm really tired. My lessons are cool, it's just when I get home I start showing massive symptoms of CBA. I even went to bed at 9:00 last night, still tired.
    And I can't stand my French teacher. Elle est un enfoire.

    We had a day in school where we sort of 'graduated' from lower school (in England by the way), where unfitting suits and tacky dresses were imposed upon many. To be fair, I despised the day. Going to church, having a disorganised buffet. I just bit the bullet and lived for the 'after party' per se. Which I can safely say was a hellofalot better.

    In classes I much prefer sitting at the back. That's not because I'm hardcore and like to text during class, I just don't like sitting at the front because everyone can see you. I like sitting at the back because no-one can see what I'm doing - I can concentrate better.
    this hope is treacherous, this daydream is dangerous.

    I prefer the middle, as my Class is so small,so I'm not close enough to be picked for examples of how, say, Nerves work, but not far back enough to be unable to see/hear.

    I always sit near the front or in the front row. I don't feel right when I sit at the back. I think I don't learn as much as I do when sitting closer to the teacher.

    I have to sit right at the front because I'm second on the register. So annoying...

    For me, sitting at the front is better for understanding the class, and paying attention to the Professor. If I sit in the back of a lecture hall I'll get distracted and walk out of the class not knowing what we went over that day.

    ^ Well, our teachers make sudden outbursts like this:
    Blah Blah Blah Blah... BLAH Blah Blah...

    ...Then I get spat at and I feel all disgusted and forget about what we've learnt about.

    Oh wow! That's never happened to me before haha, sounds unpleasant. Maybe sitting in the middle is the best option.
