We all, as staff members, have our own unique vision of JR. I do not even know what half the staff imagines JR to be in two years from now.
However, some of us seek a professional outlook and are bent on sticking to it. Others envisage a friendly community where we live like a family, forgiving each others' mistakes and learning something new everyday. Me? I don't think I want to be on either side. What good would it be to be entirely professional? What good would it be to be entirely casua
Right, so some of you may know I finished high school back in March, and the results came out this morning. Before I proceed, here's something:
In my Accounts' practical exam, I was worried I had written my roll number wrong. I thought I had lost my marks there, about 10; but I wasn't sure. It was a memory elapse to be honest: I couldn't remember whether I wrote it right or wrong. Thankfully, I did write the right roll number!
Now, my results:
English - 76
I've got an entrance test tomorrow, that checks my aptitude (it's a lie) for business administration. We have four sections:
Logical & Analytical Reasoning
Management & Communication Skills
There are 150 questions in all. 4 marks awarded for the correct answer, 1 mark subtracted for an incorrect answer, 0 for a question not attempted.
Where I took my coaching this past month and a half, they recently organised two mock tests. I coul
I'll just give my schedule and you can see why I have been inactive:
8:40 - 10:20
Read the newspaper, get ready for classes (bath, breakfast etc.)
10:20 - 13:50
Usually, the classes are from 10:30 to 13:30. One class of two hours, another of one hour. But sometimes we have a third class of one hour more.
13:50 - 14:50
Since I have just studied for three/four hours continuously, it's time to rest. One hour at most. I can not simply afford anything more than that. What do I do
There's so much to deal with. I haven't gotten it out to anyone in any form. Maybe simply writing it here will make me feel better.
Exams & My Career
In India, year 10 and 12 have nationalized finals. The ones that matter more at that of year 12 since you go to college after that. I'm having a hard time dealing with them. Our school has made us give exams and tests 3-5 times and we feel like it's a joke to study it again for the finals now. But we need to study it still. Revise. If I
I'm upset because I'm sharing the third rank in English, with the highest 15 marks ahead. It is not okay to do better in Accountancy and be a loser in English. It's not...
I wonder what tomorrow will be like. Not only is it my birthday, but also the first farewell day (the second and final is on 4th). It's actually going to be boring because the event's probably gonna be speeches speeches speeches by our juniors.
This score is going to keep me upset.
The syllabus is big, and there are too many concepts and technicalities. I am so bored. I studied the subject everyday for more half of my year 12 life and I just don't want to study it anymore. Because even when I study, I score the same as I do when I don't study. And I've actually tried that out. My scores are only marginally different.
I have my exam tomorrow. A voice inside me tells me I know enough to score the same as I always do, and there is no inspiration to emulate what I've alre
I woke up for my exam today, early enough. 7 PM, I stepped out, all ready... and there it was... something I wait months and months together for: dense fog. I was ecstatic! I always love when it's all covered in fog and we have to go to school. It's really late for Winters, but at least, something. On that note, f*** global warming.
This year, we had a much longer syllabus in computer science. There's a 640 page book on C/C++, and there's a 360 page book on Databases, SQL, Boolean Algebra,
Hmm. So we can have multiple blogs on JR, eh. That's great. I have a main blog (external). Feel free to follow me there for relatively frequent updates.
Anyway, I was thinking today about something. I've learnt to keet my distance after enough bad experiences. Sure, I would be a good friend, but I wouldn't end up attaching myself to anyone emotionally.
So, there's this girl at school that I've been good friends with for about one and a half a year now; she's my classmate. She's very ho
