(memory) Tuesday

Posted by willkay on May 25, 2010

The maths exams were done well. Two tens and eleven scores of nine point something. We then (finally) got to read out our memories. There were some very funny moments, a couple of ahhhh moments, and one “you really shouldn’t say that” moment.

After the Spanish and Civics exam, it was time to study for the English exam.

Something New: I found out why people are always pictured floating on their backs in The Dead Sea.

It has been a running joke (at least for me) that whenever you see a picture of someone in the Dead Sea, they are always floating on their backs – often, reading a paper. Yesterday I discovered why. Because of the buoyancy o the high salt-content water, if you swim on your front, it is very difficult to turn over. People drown!

Favourite Moment Of The Day (FMOTD): Angry Girl and Martha

You had to be there.

Attendance: All Present – including Guillermo. However, one left as the day progressed.


  • Umbrella
  • Reading: This is not an option. You should be reading 20 minutes every night.
  • English: Exam tomorrow.
