Good Luck Michael

Well, the HSC exams are coming up rather soon (starting October 16th) so I'm going to use this chance to send a good luck shout-out to my brother Michael. He's not someone who finds it really easy to concentrate or to accept the authority of teachers, so he's not having the easiest time of it this year. Conversely however, he's smart and enjoys learning, so he's not having as bad a time as many other students. As long as he can stay focused, keep his OCD tendencies* under control and keep his eyes on the prize he'll be just fine.

*He's not really OCD/OCPD he's just got a very particular way of looking at the word. I think this comic from xkcd explains it better than I could:

I have a particular way of looking at which word?
"...very particular way of looking at the word."
I'm sitting in a particularly boring class at the moment, reading you're blog, checking emails etc, just doing all the things I haven't had time to do recently (Two assessment tasks due today).
I was supposed to write a 200ish word piece last night: limited myself as much as i could, but what should have been a diminutive response metamorphosised into a somewhat superfluous just-under-one-thousand word one.

Anyhow, I have some events to organise, remember 888 this Friday!

Love Mick
