Well it seems i'm bored...so i'll recount the events of the Linguistics Olympiad.
I didn't really want to go to this that much....it's just my teacher suggested i do it. She basically picked us, as opposed to the other class who had multiple people wanting to do it and had their names picked from a hat. There were, in total, 6 year 12's, and about 12 year 11's. We hopped on our dodgey bus and went to the olympiad.
The only person i recognised there from another school was kristen, the one of the other contributers to this blog. She was carrying a huge art thing? I don't know.
Anyway, just before we were to start, a bell went off. It sounded like a fire alarm sort of bell, so i semi-yelled 'fire' jokingly. Somebody then came in, and told us to get out of the building.
I still don't know why the fire alarm went off, but we all had to stand outside for about 30 minutes. Kristen questioned the action I was taking while taking this photo, to which i replied "I'm taking a photo of the firetruck". While we were going back inside, the alarm went off again.
Before starting, the examiner told us we probably couldn't finish the entire paper in the 2 hours. Our group involved Me,Ben and Adrian, and we surprisingly did finish in time, of course adrian did three whole problems by himself (the "easy" ones) and ben got the "hardest one". The last one was the best (even though i didn't get to actually do it), as it involved anime. Very slightly.
I wonder how we'll go....
