A day at school

Some people think that boarding school is one long holiday. This is how they are wrong.

Monday to Friday

7:15 Breakfast
8:15 Roll call
8:30 Period 1
9:10 Period 2
9:50 Period 3
10:30 Period 4
11:05 Break
11:35 Period 5
12:15 Period 6
12:50 Band practice
1:20 Marching
1:30 Lunch

Then things start to change

Monday and Friday

2:10 Period 7
2:50 Period 8
4:00 Activity thing

Tuesday to Thursday

2:15 Activity thing

Then in the evenings we have music rehearsals (choir on Thursday, orchestra on Monday, band on Tuesday) and a whole load of work to do (up to 2-3 hours per day). Then they expect us to sleep at 10:30 and do it all again.

Saturdays are the worst though.

7:15 Breakfast
8:15 Roll call
8:30 Period 1
9:10 Period 2
9:50 Period 3
10:25 Break
10:55 Period 4
11:35 Period 5
12:10 Band practice
12:45 Marching
1:00 Lunch
2:00 Activity thing

Then you’re basically locked up for the weekend. Occasionally you’re allowed to escape into town, but by then you’re so exhausted that you just want to sleep forever. Sometimes, you do.

What’s on my homescreen: 27/08/2012

I’ve been asked a number of times (i.e. once) about what tiles I have pinned to the homescreen of my Nokia Lumia 800. From top to bottom and left to right, here they are. If they have asterisks, then they are fancy 2×1 tiles. Please note that I would throw a few screenshots your way, but Windows Phone doesn’t let you do that. If you have a non-beta phone, feel free to stick your homescreens in the comments somewhere.
