You may or may not know, but apart from the fact that it’s an additional day to the month, February 29 is significant to a lot of people. Those who have access to the internet, particularly, and of those mostly are bloggers. (Here’s to hoping that Sherlock’s blogger, Dr. John Watson, will partake in this event as well.)
To read more about the Feb29th, follow this link. The passage below is my contribution. Please read it with the voice of a slightly sarcastic, dry and better-than-thou viewpoint — to be fair, I am in the middle of watching the first season of House M.D., so the doctor’s personality has seeped off to me.
I blame osmosis, and therefore science.
Technically it’s still the 28th, but seeing as I’m going to be busy the whole day tomorrow with school and various relating works therein (homework, projects, playing nice-nice with teachers and classmates), I might as well get this over with.
On the 29th, as I’ve stated above, I’m going to be in school. I’ll (hopefully, if I remember to set the alarm) wake up at 7, be ready to leave by 8 and start lessons properly by 9. I’ll have English class first and talk about Rossetti’s ‘Goblin Market’, then I’ll have Statistics class and learn about Regression, whatever that is.
Break time is when I’ll settle myself in the Common Room and sneakily eat some sort of snack while I check my Facebook messages, Twitter updates and blog stats — and my email, if I have enough time.
After break I will have to endure an hour’s worth of Media class, where I’ll be subjected to talking about zombies and how interesting it is to make a film about them. Yay me. Good thing after that I have a solid block of Private Study, where I can read to my heart’s content… oh wait, don’t I have an interview after 12?
Yes. Yes, I do.
I think I’ll have to skip the latter half of Private Study, gather my things and casually stroll out through the school gates (with permission from the Higher Authorities, of course). I’ll most probably buy something to-go for lunch, but after that it’s free reign.
With the interview done, homework somewhat attempted and a research data compilation put off for the next day, I’m ready to actually start my day: Tumblin’ my way through the Sherlock, Harry Potter and Doctor Who fandom.
This is the life of the average me. A teenager. Female. Likes to call herself a nerd, but really it’s just the current label she’s obsessed about. Three years ago it was emo. Now? She’s just obsessing over male protagonists with high cheekbones.
