Written in 1994

Eleven and a half years ago, my year 12 English teacher wrote on my final ever report card ever that, "I believe Ben has ability but this is often disguised by his cynicism."

Tee hee hee! Just what you want to here over your final draft.



I was such a good student. I just didn't play well with others, which is written on my reports every year.

my supervisor just keeps complaining about proof reading. she says, 'it's good stuff, but proof read! proof read!' now i notice all sorts of mistakes everywhere.

that english teacher had me pegged, didn't she, though?

out of curiosity, what did you end up getting for english on your HSC or whatever it was called back in the dark ol' days of 1994?

Every single one of my reports stated:

'easily distracted'

I've always liked that one but 'cynicism' would have been cool to have too!

cynicism is good. my favourite comment, however, was from my year 10 english teach, a cute goth girl who wrote that i was charming and intelligent.
