The Questions

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

To answer these questions, click "select", then Ctrl + C and paste it onto your reply when you make your post (this will reserve the bold font, created by the code).

I want to join in! Don't prejudice me based on post count  ;)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory) - I'm currently at University (UNSW), studying Electrical Engineering!

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory) - Hugo. Like, WTF was that crap. Don't care what the critics say, absolute rubbish to me  ;)

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory). - Hmmm, a flamethrower?

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional) - I want to be fulfilled in my career and improve the quality of life of someone. If that's my family, great. If it's the people I work with, even better. If I can design something absolutely amazing and improve a lot of peoples lives, then that's a really successful career for me. That's the sappy cute version, but I'd love to manage an Engineering Company at some stage of my life. Recently, I've thought the latter half of my career could be spent doing lecturing at uni, since I love teaching. But maybe ATAR Notes will get that out of my system early (unlikely, bloody love lecturing)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional). ATAR NOTES: "A reply has been posted to a topic you are watching. Click here to reply." I love my girlfriend, I love my family, I love ATAR Notes, and I'm an Apple fanboy nerd who'd rather watch the Discovery Channel at home than go out to a nightclub. If I do something, I might as well do a bloody good job of it  ;)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in my first year of Uni! I'm about to start my second Semester. My three subjects are Journalism, Social and Political Science, and Citizenship & Communication!
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
The Cameron Diaz movie, "Sex Tape." It was legitimately the worst. It looked funny and modern but it was one of the shittiest plots ever.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I'm not well versed in the zombie world. Is a sword a bad idea? I'd hold it out and spin in a circle non-stop and swipe everything in a metre radius of me? But then again that means the zombies would be wayyyy too close before I attack. My weapon would probably be a city of people to use as live bait so I can run.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Basically I want to be Amal Clooney.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
19 years long, creative, enjoyable and privileged. That's one sentence. I stand by my statement.

Welcome to AN all, please feel free to post any questions you have about school, uni, miscellaneous life... whatever! :)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Fifth and penultimate year of uni, studying Monash MBBS(Hons) and BMedSc(Hons).

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
To Kill a Mockingbird. Scout's voice wants to make me kill myself over and over.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
One of those National Press Club blokes, can put anyone and anything into a deep coma within seconds. However, as an avid The Walking Dead fan, it seems that a gun with a lot of ammo and perfect head-shot aim would be the best bet.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be a person who is happy and does good things :)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Born, studying, lived a little, more studying, still hoping that a short man like me can make it in this tall world.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Well, I've done three years of uni, but I have *one* subject left to complete. In my final semester, when I was due to finish, I dropped a unit because I was working too much to do 4... Thus prolonging the completion of my degree. I started uni 3.5 years ago now, and I'm still not enrolled in my final unit. #awkward.

Finishing quickly's not everything, pals ;)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Safe Haven. I literally wrote this question so I could talk about how much I hate the movie Safe Haven. I mean like, come ON Nicholas Sparks. Loved the Notebook, loved Dear John... Started Safe Haven thinking "yeah alright, cool, should be good". And you know what? It was. UNTIL A RANDOM FUCKING GHOST APPEARED OUT OF NO WHERE LIKE WHAT THE FUCK?! Literally the worst plot device in the entire world, absolutely ruined the fkn movie. Fuck you, Safe Haven.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory). - Hmmm, a flamethrower?
Bruh??? You would run out of gas so fast. What if you are hiding in a forest and there are no cars to steal fuel from, then you run into zombies? Hmm?

I've thought a lot about this. A chainsaw would be good, but everyone knows that a zombie's bones are sinewy and would jam the chainsaw. I have problems with guns and anything else that requires ammo/fuel... We're in Austraila... where would you get easily accessible bullets. Where? And even if you did get bullets, how many could you reasonably carry with you?

For this reason, I would choose a double-bladed weapon of some sort. As Elyse said, you could just spin around to fight zombie hordes, can attack from a reasonable distance (better than a knife etc). Would like to get zombies from long-range though but... you win some, you lose some, right?

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I just wanna be fresh af. Humble, kind... I want to have money enough for freedom but I'm scared of becoming some fellow in his suit who lives in a little bubble - car, office, car, house, repeat. I just want to keep a lot of perspective and be a full-time mad guy. That'd be an achievement for me.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I'd say... "fuck". Basically... I work full-time for ATAR Notes (1 out of 1 full-timers dedicated to the community woo) for 45(ish) hours a week, catch public transport for 3.5 hours every weekday because I'm scummy and never got my license, then spend the remaining amount of time with ma lovely gf. To sum life in a sentence -

"Ohgod I hope I'm doing this right ohgod"

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

A pen. Cuz I have no hand-eye coordination, I'd be screwed with an actual weapon (heck, I might even accidentally hurt myself in the process). Why a pen, then you ask? So I could throw it at the zombies and have the satisfaction of hopefully hitting one of them before they eat my brains cuz let's be honest, I'd stand zero chance against zombies.

Am I allowed to amend my answer?

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

My weapon of choice would be VCE. The zombies might not seek to run away from VCE initially but give them a week and trust me, they'll be running away screaming.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
2016er.
Completed Business Studies in 2015
Completing English Advanced, Mathematics, Mathematics Extension I, Economics and Physics in 2016.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
Haven't watched a lot of movies TT__TT...

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A machete! Or an axe?

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I always want to be the best version of myself and that means exceeding my own limitations. In the short term, its to achieve a higher ATAR 95+ and attend UNSW (or USYD..?) Commerce

Post by: studybuddy7777 on July 20, 2016, 04:49:41 pm
Figured I would join the party as I am only a few days new :)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)

Currently in Year 12 and studying English Advanced, Studies of Religion II, Biology, Design and Tech, General Maths and Senior Science. (Lol, you could see the direction I was going in Year 11 but I didnt follow through)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

While a LOT of movies come closer, The Day After Tomorrow wears the crown for this one. If you have seen this, I dont need to elaborate. If you havent, its a post-apocalyptic (dystopian) movie about the melting of the polar icecaps. It was supposed to happen in centuries time but just because they could, they made it happen (overdramatised as usual) in just 48 hrs. In this, New York (of course! Thats where everyone obviously lives!) gets flooded and a really cheesy storyline about 2 people trying to reunite (males lol dont get any ideas) takes 2 1/2 hrs and a whole lot of facepalming to get through.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

Elixir of life ;D Failing that, I would settle for a box of matches to set places alight. Failing that, I would have no choice but to have a double edged sword (but I dont want to get into the trap of short range combat)

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

Ever since I was little, I have wanted to help people through science. This never strayed from helping people cope with disease/curing people. I have now decided (after a close look at engineering) to become a psychologist, and help people cope with their illnesses that way (which if you told me that even in year 10 you wouldve got a big fat lol and a laugh at)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

Born, constantly struggling to make an impact on peoples lives. Living. Stuffing up. Bit more living. A lot more stuffing up. Now in Year 12 there is no life except studying. Hopefully i dont stuff up :D

Soz if i put a dampener in your day but I am that kind of person lol (blunt, unreserved, pessimistic, dark)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I haven't found myself hating a movie yet.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Easy. I would carry a dagger, sword, machete, pistol, bayonet, shield, petrol, matches and car.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
A successful person. But remain kind at heart.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
4th year (Masters level) university student. Have a degree in IT and currently in a teaching masters. Will be qualified as a Maths and IT/Computing teacher in one year.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Despicable Me. Minions give me the creeps.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
SMG (sub machine gun). If i'm going to potentially die, I want the thrill of firing one of these bad boys before I leave this world.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Ideally I consider myself a kind and honest person, where I put others before myself in a lot of situations. Ideally i'd like to see myself in an Assistant Principal role one day leading digital technologies/e-Learning in schools (or something in that space). I haven't chosen this career path for the money - but the idea that I can help make a difference and promote technology in schools is what's driving me.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Someone who enjoys their own company, loves to help others and is a massive computing geek. :P Whilst I don't like to be the centre of attention, I like to have control of things :P I also love dance/EDM music!!!  ;D

3rd year uni, IT and commerce. Majoring in finance and Bus info systems

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Twilight. Too cliched and unrealistic

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Crossbow. Insta killing zombies at long range

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Shitty Childhood, okay high school. Okay uni :P
Title: Re: Make Your First Post!
Post by: MightyBeh on July 20, 2016, 06:14:43 pm
Not new either, but I live the thug lyfe.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Year 12. Further last year, Methods, Specialist, Literature, Software Dev and Classics (the unsung hero) this year.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
M. Night Shyamalan's Avatar: The Last Airbender. Managed to turn a whimsical story of a boy who saves the world with some serious undertones into a narrative about a bunch of wartorn countries. While I think wartorn countries provides an interesting setting I think it would've been better off as a stand alone film instead of hijacking ATLA because it got marketed to the wrong audiences, and ended up being disappointing for nearly everyone who was/is a fan of the series.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Probably a homebrew flamethrower. I feel like of all the things people will be hoarding from abandoned shops, spray cans of anything are pretty low on the list. An axe, although cliche, also would be acceptable because it doesn't require ammunition should be relatively easy to keep in good condition.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I'm pretty happy being whatever comes out of the other side. I'd like to go into finance (actuarial, preferably) and live the rest of my life as a corporate slave, having fun on the side. Not terribly interesting, but I feel like a desk life is the life for me, if it pays well. A little bit in the opposite direction, maybe, but I'd also like to be everyone's go-to nice person. Nothing like the warm fuzzies you get from helping people.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Pretty regular up until a little before highschool. Parents went bankrupt and now we're your stereotypical scumbag family living in the poor part of town wasting your tax money. Pretty good at school though so that's neat. tbh just waiting for my life to actually start so I can have something interesting to say. ::)

Definitely my first postô.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
First year of uni. Doing Biomed at Melb Uni.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I thought Pay It Forward was going to be a good movie until the very end, when they needlessly kill off the main character for absolutely no good reason, aiming to pull on the heart strings of the audience. Also agree with one of the above users in saying The Last Airbender movie was a dreadful mess.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Crowbars are good (think Half Life).

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Still figuring that out as I go.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Why summarise it with a paragraph when you can summarise it with one word? Grapes.

... Education?  What's that? :o  Since VCE in 2014 I've done a TAFE course (aged care) and one semester of Nursing and now I'm doin nothin'. :P

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Love <3 ;)

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Most of all I want to be altruistic and kind, being there for as many people as possible when they just need someone there for them.  I want to be passionate, enthusiastic, crazy; I want to be inspired, and to inspire; I want to do random acts of kindness, learn and grow, do weird spontaneous shit, live in the moment, feel deeply, love excessively, get lost in profound philosophical thought, grin way too much, and just do my fucking best.

Apparently we all can't read or don't understand the words "first post" but here goes nothing  ;D

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Sig says it all :')
But to repeat: first year uni at Monash studying what is currently known as MBBS but to be rebranded to MD/BMedSci  :o

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
The Revenant.
1. I can no longer laugh about Leo's lack of Oscars
2. I really didn't enjoy paying $21 to see Leo D panting in the camera for 2 hours
(must say the bear was a nice touch though :P )

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Can I just join the zombies? My lack of sleep basically makes me one

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Going to answer these together... my life = busy af. But I've kind of purposely made it that way - if I'm not occupied then I'm bored... Besides that I just want to give everything my all cause you know yolo :P Hopefully in 4.5 years time, I will have not failed med and actually graduated and enjoying life as it comes.

I'm in Year 12 and i'm suffering.
My subjects are Advanced English, English Extension 1, Mathematics, Visual Arts, Biology and PDHPE (pretty diverse if I do say so myself)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I can't really think of one? I usually only watch movies that I know are good.
But I hate movies that have female characters as "sex bombs" or are used to provoke 'grief' within the main hero.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A machete or an axe? Gunfire is a no no because I'll probably accidentally shoot myself.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Careerwise, I'm striving for a career in the design industry, perhaps as an illustrator or a graphic designer. I wish to study UTS in Visual Communications, but there's always a chance that I'll change my mind ;)
As a person, I would like be able to support my loved ones as best as I can.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Im currently in Yr 12, completing:

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Whilst movie watching has been almost non-existent; I passionately hated Alice Through the Looking Glass. Mainly because it was incredibly simplistic and predictable with many cliches thrown in. Although it is a children's movie, it got incredibly boring; so much so that it made me question why I paid the high price of a movie ticket to see it.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Besides cowering in fear and uselessly floundering around I would try to use anything I could. Preferably anything that doesn't require me to be close to a zombie; but also something that isn't finite and wont run out of ammo. Something like a sword, although would probably be useless at using it.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
As a person, I aspire to be whatever the hell I want to be. This does include not listening to what other people tell me about salaries and what jobs have prestigious or what jobs are pleb. Whatever I can do to help other people, is what I want to do.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
When will the HSC be over?

I'm a year 11 VCE student. My subjects consist of:
Further 3/4
Texts and traditions 3/4
English obvs
Methods
Chemistry
Psychology

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
The bling ring. I'm sorry Emma, but your American accent, and just you in that movie made it impossible for me to watch it with a straight face. Literally, just could not watch it. Even the plot line was so stupid.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A lighter?Ņ?
Uhmm, idk I'll try lighting a zombie on fire and then it'll create a huge fire and then I'll try running away from them. Idk man, I'm so useless at this.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be someone courageous, someone who stands up for people without a care in the world. I want to be the reason people change their negative views into positive ones, they get influenced by my values and myself. I want to have an influence on people. I just want to be the best version of myself that I can be.
I want to be in a job field that I like, like one of those people that enjoy going to work so much, that they don't even call it work. I also want to reach a confidence level, where I can have my own YouTube channel one day, so random but I feel like it would be so fun!

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Help me. Vce. Dying.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)

Yr 12, doing HSC way too soon. Subjects: Advanced English, Extension English, Ancient History, Legal Studies, Studies of Religion 2 unit, and Music 1!  :)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

The Duff. The movie that is the most cheesy, Americanised piece of high schooler-ass-kissing crap that I have ever seen. The movie with the "unlikely" hero, that turns out to be the most stereotypical hero you could have imagined. The movie that you should NOT watch if you want to preserve your brain cells.
Also, recently, Me Before You. For ethical reasons.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

No.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

I am really interested in social justice and ethics! I would love to do something in law or media, I'm not exactly sure what yet but I know it makes me excited! I would also love to be a person who glorifies God & shares his love through what I do, especially through the area of justice.  :)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

Finding joy whilst procrastinating from the recognition of impending doom.

This isn't my first post, but oh well!  ;)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in Year 12.
Subjects: English, Psychology, Biology, Chinese SL, Food Tech and Math methods :)
(ugh math methods is killing me...)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Hmm... So far I haven't found a movie that I really hate... But maybe it's because I watch less movies and much more dramas  ;D

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A sword. I'm assuming that it is light and hopefully, that I have the strength to use it and hack repeatedly at zombies hahaha

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be someone who can stand up for what I believe is right.
I don't really know what I want to achieve in life, but I would like to achieve a great ATAR! :)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Currently in Year 12 - Completing Literature, English, Legal Studies and Business Management; and I completed Religion & Society and Psychology last year.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Dumb and Dumber - For some reason, I just seriously hate this movie. I did not find it funny in the slightest (although that may be in part because I am not really a fan of Jim Carrey). And to make it worse, whilst the people around me laugh when they watch the movie, I just end up sitting there looking like a judgemental prick - and I blame Jim Carrey for that.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A chair. Not to hit the zombies with or anything, but just so that I could sit down and chill (and maybe have a snack or something) before being killed. I guess that when/if I'm going to die, I'd rather die doing something I love - not being physically active.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
#whenANgetsdeep. Education-wise, my aspiration is to study Law & Psychology. Career-wise, I'm hoping to become a lawyer, and use this as an opportunity to help people, and do some genuine good in the world (whilst also obviously breaking some stereotypes regarding lawyers being douchebags).

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I'm going to break the rules here and do some dot-points instead of a paragraph...
- Wearer of glasses, due to deteriorating eyesight (not because I'm a hipster [the amount of times I've been asked this is insane]).
- Both an introverted and extroverted person.
- Potential Millionaire Hot Seat Contestant (I had an audition the other day).
- Family-oriented (I'm Italian, it's compulsory).

Post by: FallingStar on August 04, 2016, 10:18:09 am
Not my first post but hopefully this helps the AN community to understand me.

1. What year level are you in right now and what are your subjects?
Year 12. Subjects: English, Methods, Geography, Visual Communication and Design, Physics.

2. What movie do you passionately hate? Provide justification.
What's Eating Gilbert Grape. This was a movie that I had to study in year 10 and I really hated it. The storyline is too superficial in my viewpoint, and is too sentimental for my INTP mind. All I find about it is a dysfunctional family and really dull life, which all makes up for a dull movie which to me, is hardly inspiring me to do anything, and does not challenge me. Also, I believe that there's more to life than what is presented in this dull film, where it is (my interpretation) all about family, country life, feelings and there's nothing where there is large scale change, or even practical change to the dull situation in the town in general. It doesn't make me happy or inspired. It just makes me depressed, which added to my already low self esteem. In summary, too sentimental for my likings (as a person who does not get emotional when watching moves). Too make matters worse, it was taught by a teacher I really didn't like, and this teacher has more respect for emotional values than me. She is someone who actually cannot teach and talks too much about herself.

And I could just go on and on and on and on... But I'll stop

3. In the event of a Zombie apocalypse, what you be your weapon of choice?
The most likely real life believable situation for a zombie apocalypse would be some sort of epidemic or disease that turns people into zombie like creatures. In such a case, my weapon of choice would be a vaccination of the particular disease or some sort of treatment or, if available, a cure. I'll probably run some sort of science laboratory where scientists would work on the cure and the prevention of transmission of a disease as such, so that we can eradicate the disease causing this Zombie apocalypse.

So my weapon of choice in summary: Science. (even if I end up dying to find the cure)

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
I want to be one of those people, who wake up, looking forward to work (as opposed to dreading the fact that I go to work). To do that, I want to find what my passion is (which I have yet to do) and pursue that. I'll be living the dream.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a (long) paragraph, what would you say?
I all honestly, I had a life of being heavily bullied in my primary school years, but some people from a rich family. Other people in my year didn't treat me that well either and I was a very unpopular person. Come my first high school. Looking back, that was my Golden era in terms of friendships. I had a pretty good group, which is diverse in their backgrounds and some of them are a little bit of a misfit. There was a particularly smart Ethiopian girl, a signer who is diagnosed with mental health issues, and lots more. Then conflict arises, one which I deeply regret (I wish it never happened). So the group was badly torn apart from then, and to make matter worse, I moved to my current school. So starting at my current school I was rounded like I was a celebrity surrounded by fans. Whilst many would interpret this as a good thing, but my INTP mind didn't like it. They asked me what my favourite TV show was, or my favourite celebrity. Given that I was a pop culture illiterate (and still am) I could not answer these questions. Also, I hated to talk about celebrities because I know nothing about them so I struggled. So come year 10, my favourite year level. I did everything I enjoyed (apart from the having to watch the movie above). And the girls that surrounded me had finally understood me. Then year 11 and 12... And into the great unknown.

A side note: What have you learnt in the story of my life?
Well, what I have noticed during these events is that I should be myself, and be my best self. So a very overused quote by Oscar Wilde: "Be yourself, everyone else is already taken." Despite pressures to become someone that everyone else wanted me to be, I stood my ground and retained my individuality. Fortunately my friendship group in my old school was very accepting of everyone's differences with one of them even saying something I really took to my heart: "being weird is good because it means that you are different and unlike everyone else." So be yourself, and be your best self.

No! Its not okay!! ;)
But seriously this was actually really inspiring to read. It is always really insightful to read people's backstories and the problems that they have faced and how to overcome them so good job on that (i would never be brave enough to put much of my real life on here in case someone i dont want to finds it. Also the reason why i have a forum name that doesnt resemble my actual name at all)

But enough of that lets not all get mopey and depressed ;D #3 really reminded of the maze runner for some reason ;)

Good on you for sharing! I love that you said you are "pop culture illiterate." What a great description haha! It sounds like you've had an eventful time in school. Hopefully you're able to find stability in your senior years! And hopefully you can find camaraderie on ATAR Notes, I'm sure you will :)

Post by: Mhysa on August 04, 2016, 07:04:39 pm
Not really new to ATARnotes :) Have been around for 3 years now. I used to be quite active. I would make amazing jokes and get an upvote on almost all my posts (idk why?), but then things changed. The moderators shut down my secondary account; account I used to upvote all the posts made from my primary account (lel). And then I deleted my primary account out of embarrassment for having recieved a message from the moderators telling me they've deleted my secondary account.
Anyway, since I now just use AN to ask questions on the spech and chem board, this will be my first non-academic post from this account (I think lel), so I should be eligible to answer the following questions:

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I'm in year 12, doing Chem, Physics, Spech, Methods, and English. I did Bio last year.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification
Shutter Island. Oh god, I completely despise that movie because of that ending. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't watched it, but do yourself a favour and watch Interstellar instead - it's a stellar movie ;)
 
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
Donald Trump. The zobies would probably kill themselves after they see that they're sharing the world with a xenophobic, islamophobic, bigoted, racist, cutured piece of trash. But then I'll probably probably have to kill myself as well :/ I'll try to get into a relationship with the zombie queen and have her spare my fam.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
In terms of my course next year, I'm not sure yet tbh. Since I fked up the UMAT, I'll hopefuly get into biomed at MelbUni or Monash biomed/law. But as a person, I just want to help people. Whether that's in the form of Medicine, Law or Politics, I'm not sure yet. Hopefuly I'll decide soon :)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a sentence, what would you say?
Single and the only one ready to mingle.
 
Title: Re: Make Your First Post!
Post by: studybuddy7777 on August 04, 2016, 08:07:06 pm
Donald trump is a xenophobic islamophobic, bigoted, racist, cultured piece of trash.

New user (actually my first post), late addition to AN and new to the game; desperate for any advantage I can get. Year 12 student that really should be doing some practice exams right now haha.  ;D

1. What year level are you in right now and what are your subjects?
Well year 12 as early said durr... doing Chem, Physics, Spesh and Lit this year as well as UMEP Bio. Last year I did Methods and Bio.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification
There is such a big list to choose from tbh... (Michael Bay, M. Night Shyamalan, anything "macho" (eg. Fast and Furious) or cheap comedy (Owen Wilson I'm looking at you)... but all time worst actor (and as such any movie associated with them drops automatically to the bottom of any list) is probably Adam ducking Sandler. I just hate the man ok. Any movie he is in just turns to cheap comedy: too cheap to even afford my time "legally" downloading. His voice just irks me in a way not many things do. I legitimately think a form of torture would be 24 hours non stop of him talking.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
I'm a realist in short and as such would probably just find whatever is most practical. Anything without ammunition is good because there is no worries of running out BUT that's not to say I wouldn't bring a gun just in case. I'd probably go all Katniss and find myself a bow and hide in a tree all day tbh...

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
This one question I've heard so many times I think I may have the answer rehearsed... I just wanna be someone happy and determined. I don't know what I want to be yet but I definitely have a few ideas of who I DON'T want to be. As for specifics I like to keep as many options open for as long as possible, possibly get into med (though thinking about how UMAT went...  :-\), possibly research, possibly engineering ( hey the world is your oyster  ::) )

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say?
Determined student from a school not so focussed on VCE (yay Northern Outer Suburbs): as such one may feel a little bit of an outsider. I want so badly to get a fantastic ATAR so I can prove to privileged students who pay through their noses for personal tutoring and expensive private schools that it is possible to achieve great scores without paying your way there. Determined to make a difference any way I can and a definite "silent achiever". Those who make the most noise generally have the least to say.

First of welcome to the forums alxhrmnn! I'm sure youll get a lot out of it!
Secondly, good that this is actually your first post lol not your 200th (oops!) I'm from NSW but i came on here desperate for an advantage the same as you.
Thirdly, can we not generalise about private schools? I only go to a private school because the public schools around me well.. (One of them is in the bottom 5 ATAR performing school in Aus). I only need tutoring because I need help with subject content. Am I going to get an ATAR above 90? No I'm not. You might make it out that people are paying through their noses but I make it out that some people are just better of to start with than others, so you should be grateful. Going to a catholic school and having a personal tutor doesn't instantly make you the best in every subject.
 
With all that said and generalisations behind us, I welcome you to the forums and thanks again for joining :)

Off topic:
Spoiler
I think the point alxhrmnn was making is that you don't need those things, he/she wasn't generalising and it certainly wasn't any kind of deliberate statement against people in Private Schools or who receive tuition. It was a statement against the generalised stigma that those things are requirements for success for every student, which they are not.

Being privileged enough to receive tuition or attend a private school is of course awesome, but the stigma of necessity of those things is what needs changing in the NSW Education System Right now. I agree with you, it's all about hard work! ;D

Post by: Lollzza on August 15, 2016, 10:38:34 pm
Um, hi! This is my first real post here in AN, so I thought here was the place to go?

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Year 10 actually ^^; Please no shaming
And I'll just list what I'm taking next year because that's far more interesting:
English Advanced, Mathematics, Both Extensions, Modern History, Biology and IPT  :)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I was going to be like "oh nah, I don't really hate any movie" but then I realised 'The Last Airbender' was a thing. God I thought I had blocked that awful memory out. If you haven't watched it, don't. Watch the series from which is came Avatar: Legend of Aang. To those who have, I'm sorry. It had bad acting, the storyline was messed with far too much, the characters were reduced to angst ridden flat boards of single dimensions and the occasional cute lightheartedness that was throughout the series was not there at all.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Probably Phoenix Wright's "objection!" It's pretty dang powerful.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to help people: which sounds cliched of course. But I want to change the world as well; which is even worse. I'm not the sort of person who can help build houses (I'd somehow ruin them), or be able to run a marathon for charity once a week, but I hope I can at least change people's minds on important issue through my written word. I want to erase stigma from what should be normal groups and create a world where no one need fear anyone hurting them thanks to something they can't control. Also I wanna make a hell ton of cash with being an author but that don't sound no where near as profound, eh?

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Uhh, well my family life is not too crash hot. Parents have been throwing chairs since before I was born but it's normal so I've learnt not to care. Been to about 10 different schools, hopefully staying till the end of HSC for this one (fingers crossed). Family couch surfed for about a month at one stage cuz we were kicked out by the bank and my father ain't got a screw of common sense. But my siblings are pretty cool, sister is twelve years older and my bro is fourteen. Now have a niece and nephew, both my brothers and I've managed to land myself into a better, somewhat drug free private school and now have math tutoring weekly. So you see where my life has gone uphill ;) I sound depressing, but really I haven't been too reflective on it too often. Pretty into writing, sketching, drama, anime, video games. All the weeb stuff. And I've passed my N4 test for Japanese! Go me!

Hope I did this right!

Um, hi! This is my first real post here in AN, so I thought here was the place to go?

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Year 10 actually ^^; Please no shaming
And I'll just list what I'm taking next year because that's far more interesting:
English Advanced, Mathematics, Both Extensions, Modern History, Biology and IPT  :)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I was going to be like "oh nah, I don't really hate any movie" but then I realised 'The Last Airbender' was a thing. God I thought I had blocked that awful memory out. If you haven't watched it, don't. Watch the series from which is came Avatar: Legend of Aang. To those who have, I'm sorry. It had bad acting, the storyline was messed with far too much, the characters were reduced to angst ridden flat boards of single dimensions and the occasional cute lightheartedness that was throughout the series was not there at all.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Probably Phoenix Wright's "objection!" It's pretty dang powerful.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

Amm... about that, when I say to people around me (who guest lurk these forums) that I'm a member of ATARNotes, guess what's the first thing the ask me?

answer
Do you have to pay for membership? And when I say no, they react like this:  :o. So if that astounds you, imagine how much would it astound people who just guest lurk these forums and don't sign up?

Good on you for joining, and I hope we can help you achieve your goals.  :)

The problem is I didnt even know atarnotes existed until the lectures- someone told me about the lectures and I only found out from there. They didnt know there was a forum either until i told them.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I should have already attained my degree and be completing a Masters by now but things got in the way so I am in second year instead and completing a Bachelor of Mathematics at the University of Wollongong. My subjects this semester are Complex Analysis and Group Theory, Differential Equations, and Applied Mathematical Modelling.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I don't think I've ever walked away from a movie with a burning hatred towards it, so not sure on this one.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Any weapon of Maths Destruction.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
As a person, I would like to be benevolent, humble, intellectually sound, and never lose my passion for what I love.
My aim is to become a theoretical mathematician since it sounds so incredibly gangster, and be a total G wherever I go.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Maths is lyf.

Not quite my first post, but it's nice to meet everyone :)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Hmm...year 11, although, since prelims are literally now, that's up for debate. I plan to do 3U Maths, Advanced English, Physics, Japanese Continuers and Ext., and Visual Arts.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Ooh. I don't have one in mind although I do mildly detest it when movies happen to fall under every cliche of cinematic history. Then again, I can't really talk when it comes to cheesiness.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Psh, I wouldn't survive a zombie apocalypse. Although...realistically I'd probably punch a zombie then slice them up with a kitchen knife, but since I can choose...gatling gun. Granted that I have an unlimited supply of bullets, of course. Then again, I'd inevitably die regardless.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Not sure. Just want to find a place in this world and help people along the way. I'd like to create things for a living though.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
A clueless wanderer who thought she was brave enough to hop off the merry-go-round and ride the rollercoaster of drama, teen angst and procrastination.  *jazz hands*

I am in year 11 doing 3/4 IT applications, year 11 chemistry, methods (I am still deciding), further maths, psychology and IT software development.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I really hate the movie Batman vs Superman. It was so bad! There was a lot of expectation leading up to the release but it was a HUGE disappointment!!! The plot was just so terrible.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I'd prefer no weapons. I don't need to outrun the zombies, I just need to outrun my friends xD
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I wanna be the very best like no one ever was. I would like to be a professional gamer that's why I chose IT. I have always had an interest in gaming so I thought IT would be appropriate for me.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I live in the matrix code.

I'm not new, but this was posted after I registered, so I thought I might as well! ;D

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I am in Year 11, doing 3/4 Biology and 3/4 HHD.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
I have never seen a movie that I hate...but there have been many movies that I go out of my way not to watch. This is because I am an EXTREMELY emotional person and these movies are VERY sad (to me, anyway - to the normal person, probably not!)
Some of these movies include:
ē   Fluke (1995)
ē   The Neverending Story (1984)
ē   Napoleon (1995)
ē   My Dog Skip (2000)
ē   Chestnut: Hero of Central Park (2004)
ē   Dumbo (1941)
ē   Toy Story 3 (2010)
ē   Bridge To Terabithia (2007)
(Yes all of these are kids movies, I haven't watched them all in like 5+ years)

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
Hmm...probably a gun, so I can shoot long range and it's efficient + quick. I'd get one of those things you can attach to a gun to make it silent, just in case zombies are attracted to noise like in The Walking Dead.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

Shawshank Redemption. It is too overated. Sure it is good but there are much better movies which should be taking that spot (rank #1)

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

A fairy god parent. Can turn all the zombies into attractive women or poof them away, could even give me some mad Ferrari that shoots flames out.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

Mechatronics Engineer at UTS or UOW

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

Probably a sledgehammer.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I love my family and watching comedy. I am great at procrastinating and not reaching my own personal expectations. My least favourite subject is English.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

The movie I hate the most is The Last Airbender and reading other people's posts I'm not alone, mostly I'm mad I spent money on watching such a substandard movie.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

Probably a cricket bat because it's light.

Hahaha this might be a bit late but here goes :)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I somehow survived HSC and am currently in my first year of uni, studying civil engineering and commerce at UNSW
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
HORROR MOVIES!!! I can' t stand any blood, guts, gore, mutant monsters of slim, chainsaw like machinery or eyeball pecking birds. I kinda want to sleep at night >.<
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I want to be those elegant fencers who can use swords or shoot arrows like a boss. However with my inclination towards clumsiness and horrid aim, I think I should stick to the basic torch like the night guards in Night in the Museum or Five nights of Freddy. Useful tool and effective at disabling things that shouldn't creep around scaring people. 
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I definitely want to help people (one of the main reasons why I'm studying civil engineering- I want to apply my knowledge in science and math to help the community).

Just finished Year 12 and patiently awaiting for the ATAR scores to be released! Music and social chills until then  ;D
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Dragon Ball Evolution. The justification is in the movie itself, one that you should never pay for. Please, attain a copy via illicit means if required.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Lego block mine field bruh
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to live up to the standards I have set on myself and be unwavering in my journey to continue being myself :)
I want to make as much positive impacts on others as I can in life.

Might as well start here.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Year 11.5 (going into year 12 this year). I'm currently studying Advance English, Mathematics, Studies of Religion II, Biology, Business Studies, and Modern History.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Pacific Rim for the longest time (the scientists annoyed me to no measurable end), but I've come to enjoy the movie.
Mind if I mention a TV show instead? Because Under The Dome was terrible. Plain terrible. While the first season was alright, it went downhill from there. Halfway through the second season, they were able to leave the dome, but Big Jim decided to screw everything up and trap them once more. PLUS, the ending of season 2 had them leaving the dome... and there was still an entire season afterwards. Under the Dome was truly one train wreck after another.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Probably a baseball bat, though it's likely I would lose it within 3 days of the apocalypse starting.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Someone that future me, as well as my family and friends will be proud of. I'd like to achieve my best, as clique as it may sound.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Meh, I'll do it later.

Oh my gosh yes to those horrible movies with famous idols!! That's why I normally watch Chinese movies from the 1990s- the humor and badassness back then was so much better than most modern movies and tv shows. My whole family are Chow Yun Fat fans. Absolutely love his movies, especially God of Gamblers. Do you watch movies in Cantonese or Mandarin?  Hahaha if you're a nerd you'll fit perfectly into Atarnotes :)

When they say late start, they probably don't mean a year late. Or two; I forget which.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Currently in Year 12, taking Advanced English, Mathematics Extension 1, Biology, Physics and Chemistry.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
This is probably a very poorly informed judgement, because I haven't watched too many movies. Oh! Fifty Shades of Grey; there's a general consensus on that. Stale acting, rote romance and shoddy puppet-like characters aside, it misrepresented an already ostracised community pretty horrifically. Not to mention how hard it was to keep a grasp on my suspension of disbelief. And that sequence with Ellie Goulding's song was like, so much wow...I had ascended to a higher plane existence at that point. Or lower. Probably lower. Down into the carpet fibres.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I'm feeling so attacked right now - first movies, then a zombie apocalypse? Um...having a machine gun fitted with tranquilliser darts sounds like a good idea. Are zombies affected by depressants? I hear they can't be killed. Anything that I don't have to aim is good; my aim is as sharp as my goal is defined, which is to say it's nonexistent.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
This has changed a lot over time, and continues to. I know that I want to be a figure of guidance and hope and comfort for the people who need it. I want to make the privileges I've had access to available for those who have not, as well as the ones I haven't had access to. I want to make a difference for the people who are overshadowed by the loud colours and elaborate plans and thrumming urgencies of our world. My story is small, and limited, and insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but I like to think there's some tiny part of it that no one else has to tell, that no one else has shared yet, and that by using that experience I can give the people I see myself in a world of hopes and opportunities. It's an obscure goal, but it's as close to an achievement as I'll ever set.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Three lines should suffice, yes? I started off with a burning passion for success and evolved that into a burning passion for enlightenment. Then came a lot of doubts and uncertainties about the stuff I'd held as absolutes in my life, as is the way of things. I ran away into the horizon, where fandom embraced me. Now I'm trying to find a way out of the cesspool I've drowned myself in, with store-bought hormones to help me along.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
In terms of what would be accessible? Knives. I feel like they'd be the only thing I'd have near me that I am anywhere close to trusting that I won't accidentally hurt myself with. If I could use absolutely anything regardless of where the closest one may be I would use a bow and arrow because I think I'd have the best chance seeing as you don't need to be incredibly close to your target.

Not a new user (someone thought I was a few days ago). Posting for a few reasons:
1. This is kind of like a central place for new and older users to meet and get to know each other.
2. Putting myself here may be helpful in case people are interested in the stuff in my sig.
3. Great reflection vibes

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)

Just completed first year uni (Bachelor of Science+Diploma in Pure Maths and Philosophy breadth at unimelb). Dreaming of doing at ambitious triple major in Chemistry, Physics and Psychology (or at least a minor in Psych) while completing an equivalent major in Philosophy under the breath component. Also studying for a Economics and History degree through University of London externals.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

Most movies that are produced purely for commercial gain instead of striving to influence people's worldviews and imagination through interesting plots as well as great cinematic effects (refer to the TV and Movie recommendations thread for great films). So mainly rom coms. If I had to choose one in particular, Clueless.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

A great partner in crime-Newt Scamander from the Fantastic Beasts (Eddie Redmayne!!!). He would be able able to protect the human race and zombie population.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

I'm still in the process of self-determination, figuring out how certain life circumstances have shaped my personhood and what values are most important to me. Hopefully I've turned out to be a somewhat good person who harbours a strong set of values and possesses a humble, genuine, warm and unassuming manner. I seek to better understand the world (philosophy, international relations, economics, social policy and anything and everything else it between), to understand why things are, or arenít, the way they are (this probably sparked my interest in debating). Hopefully one day, I can focus on finding the good in people and do what I feel is right. Career-wise, I would probably like to pursue a career at the intersection of science innovation, social justice and international law (after I complete post-graduate law and materials engineering) while working in a few innovative companies (Google is the dream) along the way. I would also love to do freelance photojournalism and continue active volunteering/mentoring (currently I conduct robotics workshops to female high school students, teach sudanese refugees English and mentor indigenous high school students on personal development and educational opportunities). I may also spend a stint in Teach For Australia (uber competitive to get in but the work they do is amazing as a close friend of mine is a current associate), teaching science and philosophy.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional)

When it's difficult to describe your life, it's easier to relate to a character in a book of film. So I'd pick Emily Thorn from Revenge or Lisbeth Salander for The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo because I share certain aspects of my upbringing with those characters, have developed certain personality traits that are somewhat similar as a result of various experiences. Being born to a world devoid of happiness, love, connection and belonging.

If there is one life-changing experience, that is discovering debating. It's that debating taught me what I care about and what kind of person I like. I might have figured it out another way, sooner or later, but that's still what happened. And it's still a lot of what I am. I've met people who were more like me and made me more like them. It's a world you can belong in.

ďWe all have secrets we keep locked away from the rest of the world... Friendships we pretend... Relationships we hide... But worst of all... Love we never let show. The most dangerous secrets a person can bury are those we keep from ourselvesĒ

Just living to hopefully see the light at the end at the tunnel. That isn't easy, but nothing doing ever is.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I am in year 12, my subjects are Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, and Advanced English.
(although i plan to do bridging courses to higher levels of mathematics before university)
I began the year doing 4u english but quickly decided that, although I enjoy english, I didn't want to do this much for my HSC.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
My mind is absolutely blank, if I hate a movie, I tend to do my best efforts to block it from any conscious memory.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Considering the scope of this question, I'm going to try to fit my answer into the same grounds.
 I choose a really big powerful spaceship which has flashing disco lights, that plays 'Flight of the Bumblebees' on repeat, which emits a powerful substance which instantly destroys all effects of the brain parasite that causes/allows zombies to exist; hence they all die.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
Well, I like physics. If I honestly revealed my completely irrational [idealistic] goals, then it would be uhh
to kind of unify the theories of physics as we know them, to make a unified theory of the universe. Even if I could do this, of course (which is most likely very close to impossible), later, my theory would almost definitely be proven to be at least partially incorrect. That being said, it would be pretty cool.

I Am Legend. First watched it when I was a sensitive five year old, never got over the monsters.

Studies of Religion I
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Daredevil. It was a major letdown and could probably be outshone by the film trailer project I created in Year 9 Drama.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
An isolated island surrounded by an excessively large expanse of water? But that's not really a weapon is it? Also, when the zombies finally figure out transportation over water I'd be surrounded and would probably die from extreme anxiety. :P
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to become someone who makes a difference, someone who people look up to or admire, someone who is tied to ideas of goodwill and change. Or a celebrity. ;D

Someone who was told he was stupid for 6 years of his life until he excelled in the early years of High School but took it for granted and now grovels in self-pity and depression just waiting for the day he can retire. Besides that, though, he lives for experiences and social interaction.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I had my first day back at school today and it's my final year of school (year 12) which I totally have mixed feelings about!
I'm part of a compressed curriculum, which in BOSTES terms I'm "accumulating" my units. Anyway! I did the HSC/prelim course of Music 1, Advanced English and Chemistry last year and this year I do Physics, Bio, Mathematics 2/3U! Struggled quite a bit with anxiety last year (hence the chem score) but this year I'm going to try to battle my way through it and get a higher result than I'd ever believe I was capable of!

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I literally had to google "Movies everyone hates" to see if I hated any since I never watch movies! Only one I recognised was Norbit, and I actually quite love that movie heheh

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
The Sun :)

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Man! Go from a zombie apocalypse question to this deep? ... I love it!
Who do I want to be? Well I want to be me, absolutely undeniably me and not feel the urge to follow someone else (I've been caught up in that before, it's awful). I want people to see me and see me for who I am rather than someone I'm trying to be! Achievement-wise? ATAR in the 90's is a goal of mine, ultimate goal is 96+ (written on my wall oops) . I hope for financial security, to begin a happy healthy family with someone I love and find to be a bestfriend also, and for more short-term just get into uni - currently I want to be a radiologist, but changing that up in the future doesnt fuss me, just want to live the uni life really!

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)

I am currently in year 11 (which is honestly such a weird concept that it's only a year away from being in the last year of high school) and I am doing chemistry, computing, english, environmental science, general math and physics.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

The movie "Minions" is an extremely irritating film. This isn't just because it's full of those yellow things that seem to get commercialised a lot, but additionally because they managed to get an entire movie spanning from the original Despicable Me film franchise. This movie is essentially revolving around a bunch of sub characters that are known for their toilet humour. They are pretty hard to like in my opinion.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Probably a small gun that when you shoot it a small flag pops out of it that says "Bang!". You know, the gag prank purchase that is a pretty popular media trope.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
My two main inspirations have always been Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking. They managed to achieve so much despite so many difficulties in their lives. They inspired to achieve the impossible, and it's extremely innovating.

As for achievement, I want to make or design something that people will remember forever. Something that will live on and stand the test of time. This may be the hardest thing to achieve in life, but it's entirely possible with effort and dedication.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
My life is only just beginning. I've had a great childhood. I played video games since the age of 4, and it was my favourite past time. I have ADHD and aspergers, and although they are in most ways a difficulty in my life, they haven't stopped me in doing what I want to do further on in the every changing future. Before I really started to know who I wanted to be, my life was very chaotic. My the right medication for my ADHD was very inconsistent, so it was very common for me to find it hard to focus in any of my subjects before we got it right. As a result school has been in some ways very much inconsistent for me as well, but nothing is stopping me from getting through it. It's been hard these past few years, but I will persist to do as well as possible at school. It's my personal goal.

A movie I hate is "Not Another Teen Movie". Essentially the film is a skit to poke fun at the all time classic "She's All That". The movie felt like a waste of time and lacked substance - it just felt like the directer was TRYING REALLY HARD to amuse the audience, which in turn made it really cheesy.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I would say a knife but in this case - i'd probably say a taser!

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
As a person I just want to be really compassionate and "be the best version of myself" in all aspects of life! I just want to achieve my own personal best!

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in year 12 and studying Business Management, Further Maths, English and Media.
 I was in year 12 last year, but got really overwhelmed by the whole idea of it, and was doing pretty badly in my classes. So I decided to drop all my subjects except two (biology and literature) and try my best in that frazzled state to complete them. This year I left my selective entry school to attend a public school and did a complete overhaul of my subjects. So far I've loved settling into a new school, but I miss all my friends that graduated.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
The good dinosaur. What the hell even happened in that movie?? It was literally one hour and a half of watching a grumpy green dinosaur mope around while the human boy followed him around like a puppy.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

 Can I get the zombies drunk? Drunk zombies probably aren't very menacing. And a zombie with a hangover? That sounds even less threatening.

This year I'm in year 12, I am studying English, Physical Education, Psychology, Business Management and German.
I passionatley hate the movie atonement however only because last year I had to brutally critique each detail which sent me into a confused and angry state as to why Briony did what she did, never watching it again.
In the case of a zombie apocalypse I would use a pistol by choice because its light weight and a controllable aim however if a zombie came at me via a sneak attack I would not be opposed to grabbing whatever pointy object is closest to me.
As a person I want to be constantly content, when seeing my ATAR results I don't want to be upset or disappointed because I want to know before hand that I did all I could. I want to make decisions that I'm happy with and not regret a thing.

Nice subjects! At risk of being annoying af and asking a question you've answered a million times: do you have any idea what you want to do next year?

P.S. I particularly love this part of your post:

Hey Vicky! Welcome to the forums! ;D

So to post your essay, just like you did to post in this thread, you simply need to reply in the relevant essay marking thread. It's in the HSC board for that subject - For example, here is the one for English Advanced modules ;D

Note that you do need to have 15 posts on the site to get something marked, as detailed in the essay marking rules ;D

Hope to see you around throughout the year! :)

It's basically a book that I have to read for school about a man called Santiago who hasn't caught a fish for 84 days but he's persistent to catch one and then the story later developes into an adventure kind of thing where the man tries to catch a shark called a manolin, and yeah there's the movie as well, but as i said above the storyline is so simple and boring, making it a real drainer :P :P :P :P

Food Fight. Usually I'm a huge fan of animations and animated movies but not this. The animations were so bland and wonky and it was extremely difficult to get through. Many aspects of it didn't make sense at all: 'I'm going to pop your corn', my favourite line. If the animation hadn't been so glaringly bad, it still would've been a bad movie, in my opinion. It also came out in 2012 and had a budget of $45 million...If you want to see how great it is, I highly recommend you to watch it. You might even enjoy it, although amazement at people who enjoyed something I couldn't.

I want to do mission, travel to other countries and experience many exciting and interesting things, be able become a recognised digital artist, speak five languages fluently, teach music, act and model and dance, work in the airforce and in the medical field, become a master and instructor of taekwondo and table tennis, be a writer, youtuber and blogger, join MENSA, lots of things ahaha.

I am in Year 8 right now. I am studying the basic compulsory subjects- English, LOTE (Italian and Mandarin Chinese), Mathematics, PESH, History, Geography, Art, Food Technology, Information and Communication Technology, Wood Technology, and Science.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Every Marvel movie ever. They are so popular in my school and i frankly can't feel the same way. They are absolutely ridiculous, not just because of how unrealistic they are. I understand that they mainly depict supernatural forces and superheroes, etc... But I think that such concepts are a waste of time. I mean, let's take SpiderMan 2 as an example. Toby Macguire looked so stupid, and the fact that they actors were taking their characters seriously makes me crack up.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I would use a flame-thrower. In my opinion, zombies would be able to handle bullets, bruises and cuts. They're tissue is already dead. The flame-thrower shall physically burn them, so whilst they may not feel pain, they're limbs shall be rendered useless. It would also allow me to stay away from them whilst i eradicate them.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I wish to be at a point in life in which everything around me is stable. I want to experience Euphoria. I hope for my own apartment in the city, by the hospital i wish to work at. I hope to have left a university with a PhD in Medical Science, and to have provided myself with a pleasant acquaintance at home.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Well, my life hasn't been too great. I am the child of a single, unemployed mother in a small house with an intellectually disabled brother. My education is the only thing to look forward to. I had quite a decent life previously, but recent events involving moving states, my father, and financial issues, it is quite unpleasant at the moment. I don't know what to say i guess lol. I like pizza??

Welcome to the forums! You've got some sophisticated goals and fantastic passions, especially given the stage of your education you are at. I hope we can be a great support network for you academically (and otherwise) as you move into higher years! :)

Ps - I also like pizza! :)

Thanks I've gotten that a lot
I had Maths Extension 2 before as well but I dropped it because I couldn't get used to the morning classes and my teacher refused to move it to afternoons :P

Felt the same. Waking up at 6.30am and getting 5 hours sleep a night is definitely not good before a 4u lesson. I'm lucky to of sat the accelerated course giving me 4 free periods a week, 2 of which are 4u now :)

OK, I'm sure my answer will get drowned by the multitude of pages on this post but here we go anyways.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Year 12, with English Standard, Maths 2-Unit, Business Studies, Engineering Studies and SDD

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I don't watch that many movies because I'm too busy studying and/or playing video games. I'm sorry...

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I would like to wield a huge 2 handed sword one day. This is my chance. I probably won't be able to lift it though

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Getting into uni is my short term goal right now. The only thing I wish for myself is not to get sucked into the monotony of daily life as an adult.

Thanks for the help

I really like main series Pokemon games, I've been playing since I was 7. Many other Nintendo games also.

For uni, I'm trying to get into an IT course at UTS, they don't look strictly at your atar but it's a scholarship with a 100 percent job rate before students finish the course. There's always other options if I miss that.

G'day guys,

To introduce myself, I'm currently the Psych and P.E. lecturer/tutor for ATAR Notes, so hopefully you'll be seeing me around the forums a bit more.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I'm currently in second-year uni, studying Journalism. In Year 12, which I did in 2015, I studied Psych, P.E., Methods, English, Physics and HHD - one of the strangest mixes of subjects, I know!

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
The worst movie I've ever seen would have to be Noah. I can't even bring myself to relive it, so I'll move on.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
I'm right into dystopian and apocalyptic novels, so I think I'd have to arm myself with a crossbow in a zombie apocalypse, so I could kill from long range. Although a sword would be cool, I wouldn't want to get zombie blood all over my fashionable ATAR Notes T-Shirt.

4. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say?
No idea, so just like most of my essays, it'd probably be filled with a lot of fluff.

Brenden and Joseph41, I hope you're proud of me!

Hello everyone! I figured I'd go ahead and try my hand at a first post.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I am currently in Year 10, studying Specialist Maths, English Language and Japanese Second Language, all Units 1/2. In regards to Year 10 subjects, I'm doing History, English/Literature, Classical Studies and The Craft of Writing (which is a class about creative writing).

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I really hate The Princess Bride. We wrote an essay about it in Year 7 and most of my classmates loved it, but I despised it. It's just such a dumb movie, like, what is its purpose? I guess I just could not find the humour in it.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Probably just a simple pistol. Small, precise and effective. Maybe two pistols. And a backup.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I don't really know. I'm hoping my subjects in the following years will help me decide what to do with my life, but I think I want to end up doing something I love. I'm interested in English and the humanities, I guess I just want to be able to study what I like and be happy. Money is a worry, though.

Thank you, and yes, next year I will be doing English Language 3/4 and Maths Methods 3/4 (I did the 1/2 last year). I'll be repeating Japanese though to do the 3/4 in Year 12, since I want more preparation to do my best.  :D

Title: Re: Make Your First Post!
Post by: Lumenoria on April 23, 2017, 01:40:46 am
1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm currently in Year 11, taking English Advanced, English Extension 1, Maths Advanced, Maths Extension 1, Biology, Economics, Legal Studies and Multimedia.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I hate The Boy, it had a solid plot but fuck, that shit was terrifying to watch. I literally had the pause the movie every minute or so to mentally prepare myself for the fucked up shit that was coming.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Not sure, probably just a sword. I'd probably end up voluntarily succumbing to the zombies though, too much of a pussy to bother putting up a fight for a lost cause hahaha.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
English is my absolute favourite subject, but I can never seem to cut down on my essays. My word count is always above and beyond the limit, which kills me everytime, so it would be nice if I got into the habit of being concise more frequently. I hope I'm also able to improve on drawing links back to the thesis on the spot. Also, I really hope I'm able to grasp maths solidly because I've been struggling with it so bad recently. And the thing is, I'm not bad at the subject at all; almost all of the marks I lose in exams are due to careless arithmetic error. I'm literally considering dropping Maths Extension as a result of this. That brings me to my next point, time. I find it incredibly difficult to complete exams within the time limit, so I hope it's something which I'll be able to improve on this year. Career wise, I want to be a physician specialising in the ER (typical, I know) or a graphic designer. I can't distinguish whether I genuinely want to pursue med or if I've just been too ingrained in medical drama shows. I'm really into motion graphics and Photoshop and stuff like that, hence the interest in graphic design.

Welcome to the forums Lumeronia! (I just answered your question in the English section, I hope it helps a little, keen to help you with that essay!)

You do a cool mix of subjects. Science, maths, english, ICT. Really awesome set ;D

Don't worry - It is the start of Year 11. Difficulties are natural, mistakes can be fixed. Don't drop anything you enjoy based purely on results, especially at this early stage! ;D be sure to let us know if we can help in any way :)

Cool career paths (very different)!! Be sure to stop by our huge UMAT section if you need any advice on Med entry in an undergraduate capacity. If you come along to some of our events this year, try and get a chance to chat to Naomi (our Bio lecturer) about Medicine! Our events are mostly Year 12 focused, but one is coming up in June that would definitely benefit you - But shhh, can't say anything about that event yet ;)

Hey everyone. I registered a year ago, but have only started posting recently and found this thread only today so here goes.
1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)[/b]
I'm in Year 12 right now, currently studying Standard English (Was not allowed into advanced English since I was "not from an australian school", Mathematics Extension 1, Mathematics Extension 2, Physics and Chemistry, but have also completed the HSC a year earlier for 2 Unit Mathematics which resulted in me dropping Biology at the start of 2017
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)[/b][/b][/b][/b][/b]
I really, really hate the second Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials. There was no real plot and it was basically, run, talk, run, talk, run, dramatic talk, end with fancy CGI
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A bow and a quiver full of fancy trick arrows. Why? I love the TV show Arrow as well as Legolas from Lord of the Rings
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Hoping to be a person that inspires other and help people. A fantastical dream would be to build an Iron Man suit, but more realistically, it would be to start getting into technology and work for a technological company one day. The other dream would be to go far with my music. Have a passion for music and have played the guitar daily for the past two years. Was not allowed to take Music in school, because it fell in the same subject line as Chemistry, but I take part in HSC performances of my friends and perform on school assemblies. In a nutshell, I want to be someone who goes far to influence other people with my music or with technology

Don't really watch movies. Bad ones I tend to forget about instantly. Gotta say Whale Rider from Y7 extension English had a terrible plot and the main character was inherently unlikable for a supposedly inspiring female protagonist.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Wouldn't bother fighting.

SUPER delayed reply but this pisses me off a bit because like... 1) crossbows are inaccurate over long range. 2) literally rule number one of zombie choosing weapons is "don't choose something with limited ammunition (i.e., gun). I thought you were better than that, howeigh.

Hi !

What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? i'm a year 10 and most of the subjects i'm doing now are core: english, maths (advanced), general science, careers/civics/law, history, and Phys Ed. But my electives are Japanese, Run your own business (the y10 prerequisite for Business management though i doubt i'll continue), and Maths Methods Preparation (another prerequisite).

What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. Woa there's a lot. For starters the whole divergent series. Though i haven't read the books and can't really judge them, i absolutely despise shailene woodley and can't sit through any of the films she's in.

In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? Baseball bat. I'm terrible at sport and anytime we play baseball/softball/something along those lines, i have to sit out because i have the habit of throwing the bat through the air after i hit the ball. Smart, yeah?

Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? More than anything i want to make a difference. I'm probably don't have what it takes to be a doctor or a police officer, so i'd want to be be a politician, sit in parliament, make laws... that kind of thing. Its just a shame most people see all politicians and greedy and power hungry, when some just want to create change  :-\.

If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? Don't really know about this one. I was born/used to live in a country town where the only real career paths you could chose from were in agriculture or nursing, neither of which i liked. Eventually i moved to the city and all i can say is 'eye-opening experience' is the biggest understatement. But now i'm getting good grades and pushing for an ATAR of 90  ;D

I'm currently in year 12 and my subjects are Standard English, Gen.Maths, Modern History, Senior Science and Legal Studies.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Hmmmm....i think I've run out of time to watch movies...this HSC is crazy ;)
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be someone who is always positive and makes others feel wanted. If I can't do that, then really nothing else I do will be worth it. And if I could be anything, I'd probably be a politician. As Skyersie said "Its just a shame most people see all politicians and greedy and power hungry, when some just want to create change". That's exactly how I feel!!
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
My life is the best! I'm incredibly lucky to have a loving family and community plus food, shelter and a warm secure bed! Not everyone gets this ya know!! :)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say?

Regarding 5. Glad you're staying strong :) Congratulations for fighting it AND having the motivation to continue. I genuinely commend you for that. Dream high fam

As long as you work hard there exists no disadvantage, most people messed around the whole of year 10 anyway. Year 11 is truly where foundations are built and Year 12 is all part of perfecting them.

I hope Atarnotes is warm place for you :) I'll see you round~!

Year 12 and 5 months til graduation.

Extension 2 Mathematics
Extension 1 Mathematics
Advanced English
Information Processes and Technology
Studies of Religion 1
Legal Studies

I also took Preliminary Physics but dropped out at the end of last year.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

It would be the latest Ghostbusters. That thing made no sense and bored me to pieces :( I also hated Ghost In The Shell and fell asleep during the screening :\ I did not feel any emotional bonding for any of the characters, they also seemed to never develop in a meaningful manner and the plots were really poorly executed.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

I would take a Gun. Maybe a P90 due to it's compact nature and armour piercing capabilities. Being able to run around would be a huge bonus.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

No idea. 5 months til graduation and still deciding. I do have a interest in philosophy, psychology and politics though. I wouldn't mind doing a double degree with one of em involved. Alike to Jamon I also want to improve somebody else's life. My english tutor has genuinely impacted my life, introduced me into the world of philosophy and unearthed many of my previous self delusions. I wish to do the same for somebody in the future.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

Pretty damn good until recently. Still going strong though, last stretch~

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory) Currently attempting Year 11. It's difficult but I'm still fighting. Subjects are Advanced English, Mathematics, Senior Science, Modern History, Business Studies and Visual Design.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory) Is it weird to say Hugo? We watched it in year 8 and ever since I have hated it with a passion. But everyone else seems to love it?!
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory) Definitely an axe/sword of some kind
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional) I want to complete Year 12 knowing I did my best and achieved success...looks like i'm gonna be using AT a lot  :D
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional) I had cancer in year 9-10...8 rounds of chemotherapy...numerous nights in hospital...missed 3/4 of year 9-10...injections like you wouldn't believe...lost my hair...lost my friends...lost my confidence...but I'm working on that ;)...so every lesson I walk into I feel at a disadvantage e.g. learning how to write an essay, those basic maths skills...anyway sorry for the negativity...really looking forward to using this site and achieving my dreams! :) :)

Really great to have you here, tay - welcome! ;D

completely forgot to do this when i first joined, so ... better late than never? (:

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
year twelve (vce). my subjects are in my sig, but for the sake of completeness: took bio last year, taking english, lit, revolutions, hhd, legal studies and extension history at ltu this year.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
oooh. um. i'm not really a movie person? she says, whilst literally buying tickets to see wonder woman. generally if i don't like something, i just kind of don't watch it haha, but right now my most hated movie is bend it like beckham solely because i found out yesterday that jess and jules were almost a thing and holy heck i'd have sold my soul to see that. otherwise, idk, any horror movie ever made would also work as my answer.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
um. the golden rule is no weapons that can run out of ammunition, right? in that case, i'd probably take a baseball bat because i don't really trust any of my skills but fifteen years of tennis means my swinging's okay lmao. but like i'd straight up die in ten seconds, so it doesn't make much of a difference.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
i like helping people? but i have no idea what i want to do with my life. graduating year twelve knowing i worked as hard as i could have would be a nice start.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
this one time, i slept twenty hours straight and it was the greatest day of my life.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
As of now, 2017, am year 11, doing Methods (CAS) 1/2, Physics 1/2, Economics 1/2, English 1/2, and VCE/VET Business 3/4.

Am starting an Accounting Cert IV through school, will be doing Accounting next year, after finishing Business

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Ready 2 Die (2014). Absolutely horrible - have to dig through about a thousand layers to find the plot, which isn't worth that much effort. About as enthralling as a 3 year old would find Tolstoy's 'War and Peace'.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Does a Cessna count as a weapon? Just some sort of transport to get the heck out of it all.  ;)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

Hey, doddsy! Welcome aboard. :) Your best bet might be to ask this question in the Physics forum, where you'll hopefully get some good answers. :)

For HSC Physics, try this.
For VCE Physics, try this.

Let me know if you need any help! :D

If you like computers, I'd strongly encourage you to explore that more. Computer skills are the future - and if you go onto seek.com.au and look for "joks paying over 150k", you'll notice thousands in the computer science section - compared to hundreds in med/law, compared to tens in other industries. Pretty compelling.

There's a couple of barriers in that path though...
No.1 is my parents; they aren't really supportive of a future in IT/Computer work...
No.2 is that although I like computers, I'm  not really that good on them...
I mean, I can batch script a fake virus, but that's about the limit of my technical expertise... :(

1. I'm sure they'd come around if you showed them the huge proportion of 150k+ jobs LOL. If parents were going to "come around" to anything, it would be IT, once they were presented with good research. Besides, your parents aren't always going to be as dominant a force in your life as they are right now!
2. Michael Phelps couldn't swim once. Computers aren't a thing humans are "good at" or "bad at" - they didn't exist for 99.99% of our entire existence! Rather, they're just something we learn and practice. If you can script something - that's great. I don't even know what scripting is. So you're clearly better than me. I've met some pretty talented developers who were only doing it for a few years really full on. Even if you started pottering around right now, that's 2 years before you start uni, another 3-4 years in uni - for a total of 5-6 years of learning before you even go for an entry level job! Don't discount it just because you're not good at it right now :)

How was WonderWoman, btw, patriciarose?

i'm seeing it friday! (was going to be a reward for finishing the gat and lit and legal sacs this week, now it's more of a reason to live, but hey, whatever works!) it looks actually amazing though and we never get female-driven superhero movies?! so tbh i'm prematurely dead, and that bodes well! if it's good i'll never shut up about it since i'm honestly living for this atm, haha. and on that note, if anyone's seen/seeing it and wants me to screech in their inbox, i ?? yes.

Hi there, I'm late! I've been lurking around here ever since my prelims but finally after a year, I decided to join in! (Only because it sounded like more fun than studying English haha)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in Year 12. My subjects are English Advanced, Maths Ext 1 and 2, Physics, Chemistry and Japanese Beginners.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I rarely watch movies unless I'm being dragged to the cinemas by my friends (which surprisingly was a good experience everytime despite being expensive...) Probably the movie I hated the most off the top of my head is the minion movie. I really enjoyed Despicable Me for some reason but then the half of the minion movie I watched was extremely boring. I can't remember what happened in it but they were probably just running around blowing up stuff or something...(fuels my dislike for them because they're everywhere but I'll probably drag myself to watch the 3rd despicable me just for the sake of it)
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A long sword like a katana or something so I can be as far away as possible from them. I would use a gun but I'd be too scared to go out to fetch more ammo. Climb onto some roof and just stab anything that tries to climb up seems like a plan that may let me survive for a week.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Considering the amount of negativity we have on the internet these days, I want to spread positivity in some way and help people reach their potential. I find it incredibly rewarding inspiring people to become motivated to overcome that thought of "I'm not talented" and actually work hard to achieve their goals. The majority of these "talented" people whether in academics, sports, creative arts etc. were not prodigies but people who have consistently tried and tried to improve themselves. In the end, I just want to be good at something and help people be good at it too~
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Sometimes life just wants to be difficult. Like how English is compulsory.
Also I can safely say I've cried more times this year because of school than Yr7-11 combined and it's only been 6 months.

Welcome aboard yuriques;
Glad to have you move from the lurker to the poster ;).
Very interesting subjects and replies to the initial questions :D :D

I seriously think you should drag yourself down to see the Despicable Me 3.
From the trailers, it's gonna be awesome...

Anyway, enjoy where you now are, and we hope to hear more from you!  8)

One of these days, I'll just give up for a day and go on a movie binge. I remember when my friend was talking about it and how Gru's twin was a cute. I don't know why but I was expecting... someone different looking (I'm stupid. Like it's his twin, what's wrong with my thinking LMAO)

Hey, I've been on here for about a month but haven't posted anything yet. So here I go:
1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Year 12: Advanced English, General Maths, Legal, History Extension, Ancient, Music 1 and hospitality. :)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
The Mortal Instruments and Vampire Academy. I had loved the book series and the movies tried to hard to be cheesy and hardly even followed the book's plot line. I couldn't even watch the whole movie which was really disappointing because I was so excited about renting it.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I don't know.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be a person who is caring and makes people feel happy and accepted. Also I kinda want to be a music/history teacher and help younger kids.

I don't think truer words have been said! The movies were shocking. Particularly Vampire Academy - my friends and I went and saw it at the cinema, and can quite frankly say, it was the biggest waste of $14 in the history of the world!!

If you're doing 20th Century History, I take it you're doing History as an accelerated subject? I did this in years 10 & 11 :D A thoroughly enjoyable subject.
Also nice to see French in the mix there!

Oh wow, that's interesting!
Well, history was probably my favourite subject at school, so I'd say definitely ;D
I absolutely loved Revolutions, was the one subject I can say I thoroughly enjoyed turning up to every single lesson and thoroughly enjoyed actually learning. I guess how much you enjoy it can be influenced by your teacher and the revolutions you study (I did China & Russia), but it's an awesome subject to do as a 3/4 in Year 11 - you can dedicate heaps of time to it, and it makes it so much less stressful. Plus, I made some awesome friends in my class who were the year level above me, who were people I otherwise wouldn't have talked to. Would recommend. Happy to answer any further questions you have in PM :D

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Year 12 -- 2017
Subjects: Mathematics, Mathematics (Extension 1), English (Adv), Biology, Business Studies, Software Design

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
There aren't any that I hate -- just mildly dislike, because each film has their own distinct quality about them.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I would use mathematical methods to calculate the shortest distance between the nearest zombie and myself, and take corrective action to combat these measurements (ie clone Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, and 2 Russians)

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Profession-wise: I'd like to do something in the computer field, as it's the future right now.
If not, I'll stick with being a maths teacher, since I love maths (don't know why I didn't do MX2, oh well :0)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I'd see myself as an introvert; I don't typically enjoy being the centre of attention, and if I do, I tend to pass the bucket to someone else.
As such, I'm not a party person. I'd like to spend my time being productive and enjoying satisfaction from productivity than living on the edge.
However, that's not to say that I don't like having fun. I just wouldn't like to be around peer groups and intoxication.
I'd like to say that I'm creative in my own merits, as well.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. Ohhh this is a hard one... probably the Battleship Potemkin and I know I'm going to get a lot of people disagreeing and saying it is one of the best films of all time seeing as it basically invented montage, but I remember having to study it in yr 9 Film Studies and I am more than positive we watched the "steps" scene at least 40 times... without trying to sound dramatic, it was quite traumatic and quite frankly boring.

Currently in Year 12, doing 2U English (Advanced), 3U Indonesian, SDD and Chemistry. Also did 4U Maths last year and got 93 in 3U and 87 in 4U. Also I'm 16 this year so...  :-X
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Gravity. Boring, unemotional, and a waste of 2 hours.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Probably my legs. My running would be better for me than any weapon. Ask any of my friends and they'd tell you I'd probably be the first dead.
If that's not an option, then I'd probably snipe.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be a guy that people can rely on for support (as long as they can get past my slight outspokenness). I also want to be successful (in as many ways as possible) and live a full life with people I love.

I don't watch a lot of movies except for those in class and the movies I did watch, they're usually adaptations which I know I will like. (I don't have a life)
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A katana so I can be a samurai and slice zombies up while possibly getting eaten alive. Or maybe a sniper rifle. Those are cool too. Maybe just burn them?
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be someone that I can be proud of, someone who can enjoy life at its fullest (not happening right now though)

The ATLA movie haha what avatar: the last airbender movie?? you must be joking, there is no ATLA movie. nuh-uh. nope. absolutely not.

That scene where five earthbenders all do a massive co-ordinated punch and one rock starts floating. ONE ROCK. Scandalous! The only part I disagree with you is on the reboot, i'm too traumatised to experience another Avatar movie.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
Year 11.
Subjects this year:
1&2: English, Methods, Physics, Chemistry, IT: Computing
3&4: Further
Hoping for next year:
English, Methods, Specialist, Chemistry, Software Development

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
Honestly, I can't answer. I just love movies that I see today. But there is one that I like the least Ė The Ender Games. Why? It's still insightful, but I just don't feel my way around themes and ideas the first time round. (I feel like I am lying myself out.)

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
An automatic rifle. Why, it's versatile Ė and adaptability is a requirement.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Something new. And revolutionary. In software. Some software that can revolutionise the world. (I know, I have big ambitions Ė O'Macbeth!)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
It has its ups and downs. Times where I get 100% on my maths tests (teachers say I am one of the best maths students they have ever seen) and scores as low as 90% Ė to feel really bad about those because of my overly destructive perfectionism Ė and I should not even feel anxious and depressed like this. Oh, that's the reason why I joined this forum in the first place, for help to maximise my study score and ATAR. Get back to the topic! Deanator71! Well, currently, I am on track to something good in the future though Ė I am working for it. Help me to come back on my 90%'s though so I can feel good about getting 100% again. This is my life at the moment Ė depressed by perfectionism.

Anyway, Deanator, Welcome into the AN fold, and I seriously hope that you will stick around, and not be put off by my horrid Shakespeare mod attempts...
Hope to see you round...  8)

P.S.
Won't you run out of ammo in that Automatic Rifle? May I suggest you invest in some shuriken and a Katana??

B. Computer Science, maybe a B. of Software Engineering. If the time arises a masters or a PhD sounds cool.

This is my first post EVER! (yay me)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
In Year 12 studying English ATAR, Mathematics Applications ATAR, Human Biology ATAR, Chemistry ATAR and Religion and Life GENERAL (Religion is compulsory at my school)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
Children Of Men - did a film study on it in Year 11. It may be a good, 'cleverly layered' film but all that is thrown out the window when you have to write an essay on it.  And the ENDING totally screwed me over.  I hated the ending. Just. No.

 3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
Broccoli. Do it properly. Use broccoli.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
I just wanna help people, make their lives easier 'ya know? My dream is to do lab research and make some super cool/helpful discoveries.  Ideally ones that can contribute to finding treatment/cures for disease/conditions.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say?
Undeserved. That's what my life is. Out of the millions of sperm that tried to reach the egg, one was not worthy. Yet that one sperm was selfish and was like "Nah fuck youse all brah I'm fertilising this egg." I feel like I am the product of a selfish sperm......I don't know even anymore.  Wtf am I doing with my life.

Hey,
Welcome to the forums! :D

I had to study Children of men last year (the book though, not the movie), and I think we had to do a speech on it. Definitely wasn't my favourite book or movie. We had to watch the movie and I share your frustration with the ending.

Lab research sounds really cool and so helpful! What type of cure would you like to find?

I don't have a favourite piece of stationary, but pretty much anything from Kikki.K (I bought 18 pens there on the weekend for no reason), and anything that is aqua. I just wish I could be creative in SOME way so that my notes could look vaguely nice and not a scribbled mess...but I have to keep dreaming on that one  ;D . WOW! That's a few mildliners!

Hello there! I'm new to these forums. Seems super cool tbh.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I'm currently in Year 10, and my two chosen elective that I've had to do from Year 9 until now is Drama, which I passionately love, alongside Design & Technology - which I passionately hate.  ;)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
I actually don't know, maybe because I always watch the trailer and if a movie seems crappy af, I know to just walk the other direction. I might have to get back to this another time.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? .
ZOMBIES GON' CATCH THESE HANDS! Just kidding. I wish. My weapon would be a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, because I can either hide and eat it or distract them by throwing it in their face. Logic, right?

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
I want to be a person who is content with their life - Personally, I want to end up working in film and media. Film-making seems to be the go for now. It's the industry that greatly attracts me, hence why I decided to continue drama the following senior years alongside picking up entertainment industry VET course. I'm looking forward to it.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? 
Procrastination. A person who chose 'buisness' studies but ALWAYS stuffs up the spelling of business. Usually quite energetic, a fan of films, an individual who needs to read books and expand her vocabulary. I also really like Peanut Butter & Jelly, I dunno if you could tell but... Yeah! 8)

I actually stress for the drama hsc from now lmaoooo. Idek why, maybe it's because each year we watch the drama trials and everyone gets super nervous from how good they are. Right now, I intend to do the short film for the Drama IP. We recently finished short films for our assignments and I was super happy with my result ---- but I guess we'll see! And thank you <3

Hey remember that they are that good because they spent a year working on it! Two girls from my old school were nominated for OnStage this year, and I know that they only started working on it in year 12 :) And awesome!!! As you probably gathered I did a short film last year aha, so if you ever want to chat about anything drama related - film or otherwise - make sure to head over to the drama threads and we can discuss :)

Year 12. English Advanced, Maths Ext 1, Maths Ext 2, French Cont., French Ext, Chemistry
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Project x. Not only was the plot clichťd and predictable, the handheld camera didn't work for me and it just seemed like an 'I love sex, let's make a film about that' kind of movie.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
None. I'd pretend to join them.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Dependent on the HSC :P :-[ ;D

Hi everyone! I'm Martina :)
1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I've just finished year 11, and am about to go into year 12! My current subjects are Biology, Chemistry, Legal Studies, Business Studies, Mathematics, Mathematics Ext 1 and Advanced English.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
The movie that I most passionately hate would have to be Sucker Punch. I'm sorry, but I did not understand what the heck was going on, it was confusing-as, but hey, maybe that was just me.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
Inspired by Norman Reedus, who plays Darryl in TWD, I'd have to go with a cross-brow. You can keep using the arrows, it's quiet so it doesn't attract more zombies and you can shoot long distances. Although, this is only if this zombie apocalypse mirrored the Walking Dead; for all I know, zombies can learn from our actions.

So I totally dropped the ball and missed this thread lol, so not my first post

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
1st year at university, my subjects are not things you need to know about.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Hmm, a toughie. I guess I would say Gintama: The Final Chapter - Be Forever Yorozuya, Gintama Movie 2   as of now. For the hype it recieved, it was a massive let-down, it offered nothing new to the universe and was merely a fan service extended episode.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Nothing, I like to be on the winning side, which is of course the zombies :P.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
No idea, my mind changes everyday on it. What do I want to achieve to figure out who I want to be as a person :P.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Making sure other people don't go through all the mistakes & stupidity I made in my life.

I am in year 10, about to go into year 11 and am currently only studying 1/2 Biology. Next year though (or the end of this year because of headstart) I will be studying Chemistry, Methods, English, Literature, Health and Human Development and Biology 3/4
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Basically all horror movies. The plots are bad and the only reason they're successful is because of cheap jump scares.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A plane that has guns, like a fighter jet i guess.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be independent and just really happy, content and comfortable. But then again being Rihanna wouldn't be too bad tbh.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I am currently in Yr.11 doing: English, Spesh, Methods, Physics, Chem and 3/4 P.E.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate?
'Requiem for a Dream' is without a doubt my most hated film, mainly due to the fact that it kept me up for that whole night straight and left me quite disturbed. I highly recommend it :D

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
Probably a scooter, just so you can flick it around and hit their ankles

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
Well this is a pretty full question. I want to be a person thats enjoyable to be around and is seemingly easy going, but in serious situations goes like full cold-blooded 'Heisenberg' if you get me. I might've completed missed the point there, but essentially I want to be relaxed, yet serious when the situation calls for it. I want to achieve success in that I have no regrets, and am happy with what I'm doing.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say?
I've got a P.E practice exam sitting in front of me, so I wont do this one! Soz :P

I'm currently in Year 11, and well on my way to Year 12. I hope.
Subject-wise, I'm going for Legal Studies, English, Further Math, Biology, Studio Art 3 & 4 (graduating that this year), and Psychology, which I may or may not switch to PE.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I most passionately despise anything including 'My Little Pony: Equestria Girls'. Honestly, what were they thinking? It's barbaric.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Definitely my very own enslaved and loyal Inquisitors from Brandon Sandersonís Mistborn series. (Amazing read. Do recommend.) Basically a zombie v. zombie situation, except my ones would win because they have giant metal spikes through their eye sockets. And everywhere.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

I would like to be a good person, which is a start, I guess. After that I wish to become a policewoman. It's a childhood dream of mine, really.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
One term into Year 12, yikes, I'm doing English Adv., English Ext. 1, English Ext 2., Modern History, Ancient History, History Extension, Drama and Legal Studies.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I hate with every fibre of my being the 'Where the Wild Things Are" adaption, terrible trash book that turned into a trash movie with zero creativity and colour. Looks like a depressed James Joyce fever dream.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Weapon of choice would definitely be my copy of Heart of Darkness because it is honestly the most effective torture devise ever created.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I just want to be someone who is happy with their life and is able to make a difference. The ultimate goal is to do Law/Arts at USYD or ANU and have a job doing human rights inquiries like Amal Clooney's work in Syria, or I'd love to work in theatre as an actor or director, specifically with Bell Shakespeare or the Royal Shakespeare Company in the UK.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
A big ol' mash up of Buffy, study, depression naps and musical theatre.

Greetings, I'm dashnog and now officially a newcomer in ATARNotes. I've just freshly graduated Year 9 with As and A+s across the board, and I've also achieved an academic scholarship earlier this year, but next year I'm running again for a performing arts scholarship, as it's more tailored to my interests. I wish I could've skipped a grade to Year 11, but my school unfortunately wouldn't let me.  :(

I take massive interest in all aspects of music (performing, theory & analysis, composing) and am also a massive nerd when it comes to science. So much so that I'm already 2/3 of the way through the entire Edrolo Psych 1&2 course like 9 months in advance.  :P

I hope I'll become a welcome member of the community here, and I hope to contribute at least in some way with my studies!

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I am about to go into Year 11 this year. My subjects are Psych 3/4, Methods, English, Lit and Chem.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Bride Wars. When I was little I loved it, then grew up and realised the deep rooted sexism and stereotypes that make up the entirety of the movie :/
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Well, since zombies are already dead, the only option is to destroy whatever is left in their brain to "kill" them...Chainsaw? Then I could lop off their heads, but that would be rather gruesome.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
This is a question I am still figuring out.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

I'm in year 12 right now doing drama, SOR 1, Maths both 2u and ext.1, physics, chem and I can't believe I haven't killed myself because of it but Adv. English... I hate english.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Are we there yet. I love Ice Cube but if a thriller or horror movie doesn't raise your heart rate, this definitely will. It's so stress-inducing I think I had some failure of an organ at least 20 times during it.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Hands down the elder wand

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
My parents hadn't had a child in eight years, then they decided to have me. My life is full of psychic moments and I don't think you'll ever see me not smile (I once didn't smile just to test waters at school and multiple teachers were severely concerned lmao). I always find joy in things and that's something I pride myself on. except english though, english just sucks.

Not too sure if this will work but yoloo, new year new me amirite?Ņ

Year 12. I'm doing mathematics, physics, chemistry, studies of religion 2, and english advanced. 10 units for the win!

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Charlie in the Chocolate Factory (the one from 2005 with Johnny Depp). Look, I've watched my fair share of horror films, five year old me had LIKED the 'Edward Scissorhand' movie. It's not like I had anything against the original movie, Tim Burton, or Johnny Depp... YET. Nothing has scared me as much as Willy Wonka's porcelain doll white face and chilling, doped monotone. It's taken me 13 years to fully watch a tv series with Johnny Depp in it and I actually quite like him, he's becoming less terrifying. But I'm not going to lie, if I happen to meet him, I would probably bolt the other way. 

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I'd say a bow and arrow so I wouldn't need to get too close to the zombies, but I'm not the most skilled at using one, so katana it is.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I'm aiming to get into forensic science. As a person, I just don't want to have any regrets and try whatever comes my way.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
A slow transition from being a book hoarder to a movie hoarder. I'm always aiming for the best I can do and I am a nice balance of quiet and confident. People say I have a contagious smile, so I try to share the happiness each day. :)

After watching Walking Dead i would have to say a sword (Michonne has some pretty epic skills)

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

I would loveee to get into med and become a doctor because I just want a job that helps people and I loved biol so makes sense. I currently do work as a swim teacher and I love the people aspects but not so much the kids swimming amok.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

Lord this is hard, I have high expectations of myself and enjoy swimming and just being a teenager. I hate studying and procrastinate until just before exams and then cram 37 practice exams into a month (god bless further). I used to real a lot but my love (aka my phone) has taken over my life but I plan on getting back into it more. I also like playing music and being a nerd (debating team for the win). I also know this year I need to have a balance of everthing to keep sane so I hope I can do it :) :)

Great to see you round the forums @Bell9565, welcome! Congrats on your Further and Bio, great job! With those kinds of scores you should be fine to get into med. As for doing Methods, Spec and Chem in the same year, I'm doing that as well, only I have three other subjects to cover as well! :P Just remember that if you ever need support or help, this awesome community is here for no other purpose, to help you and for you to help others! :D Good luck, and welcome to AN and the Class of '18 ;D

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

I can't think of a specific movie, although I'm not really a fan of the horror genre.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

My first thought was a flamethrower or sword, though there would be issues with those.. if only there was some kind of control device or viable non-weapon related solution.. :P

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

Hoping for an ATAR high enough to get into my 'dream' course or university (or one which interests me), whatever it may be. I also have an interest in animals, music and art. Options like media, photography, writing, gaming or design seem viable based on some of my other hobbies, however, I doubt that I'll go down that path career wise.
I'd like to be a Zoologist or pursue a career based on studying and helping animals, but this may change depending on what I study at university, which may end up to be a health / nutrition or (other) science related path. I hope to figure this out soon.

Twin brother made an account and started posting, thought I would give it a go as well:

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Currently in year 12 (approaching freedom!) and doing 4 subjects: English, specialist, chemistry, music composition.
I've already done three 3/4s, first one (methods) in year 10, and got a raw score of 47 which I was more than happy with.
In year 11 I did physics (raw 42) and chinese SLA (raw 39), since I got the 47 in methods without doing a lot of work I made the costly mistake of underestimated how difficult VCE actually is, and was kind of disappointed that if only I worked just a little bit harder I could've gotten a 40 for chinese. On the other hand, my twin brother and I were probably the only white people in VCE history to ever do Chinese SLA XD

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
The Shining. I know it's a really popular movie based on a really popular book but the movie honestly was just horrible. I read the book first (cos I'm a nerd :P) and the movie changed so many key details it wasn't even the same plot anymore.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
probably be the first to die honestly
I'd just use the invisibility cloak from Harry Potter and pray that zombies don't have a good sense of smell.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
 :oNah, this is too deep a question for me.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Let's see... I would say 'very multicultural'. Due to my parents' background I can speak some Portuguese and Estonian, my family moved to China when I was 2 and lived there for 8 years, so Chinese is like my mother tongue even though I'm 100% European (parents met in uni while studying mandarin, since neither of them speak English as a first language they just conversed in Chinese, hence I grew up in a Chinese speaking household). Also, before I came to Melbourne I lived in Sydney for 4 years so my vocabulary also consist of words like bubblers, mufti, and slushi which Melbournians cannot understand XD

O_o

This sort of reminds me of one of my friends, although less extreme. Her parents are a South African and New Zealander and she got her American accent from (an international school in) China.

I use slushy, I know bubblers - but donít use it, no idea what mufti means though

This is my first proper post. But I have been messaging a friend and posting on the forum games for a month or two.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Year 12. Methods, English Language, business management, Informatics, VET IT
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
This is too hard.
If I flip the question I most passionately love most Disney movies.
But I can't think of any movies I hate at all.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Serious answer: As I am Christian I will take god with me. As I believe he is the most powerful thing and he loves me and will protect me.

Fun answer: a fire breathing dragon to burn all the zombies.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
All I want with my life is to put god first and trust him and follow his plan I have for me. Through that I want to be a loving and caring person. But as long as I am honouring god that is all I want to achieve.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Currently I'm in Year 10, studying Maths Methods 1/2 and Bio Unit 1 (my school doesn't offer Unit 2 for Year 10 students). I'm still tossing up between the subjects I'll do in Year 12. Apart from VCE subjects, I'm doing English Language (just finished my English elective), IT, Sport/Health, and I just finished my history elective.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Well I surprisingly don't like watching many movies, especially in theatres. Unless it's a movie that catches my attention super quick, I kinda get impatient 10 minutes in. So I can't really think of a movie I hate  ;D

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I feel like a lot of weapons have downsides to them... How about a gun with an infinite amount of bullets?  ;D

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be happy  :D

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Very eventful. But right now it's full of studying!

Hey!
Welcome ;D
You've found the right spot for your question about studying for bio :)

There's also guides that people have written about how to study for various subjects. They can be found by going into the section of the forum for that subject and there'll be a thread that says 'useful resources' or something similar - the bio thread for it is here.

Typing in the quick reply box adds your post to that thread (in this case the ďthreadĒ is ďMake your first post!Ē). Usually if replying to someone Iíll quote them by pressing the ďquoteĒ button on their post, then type my reply after [/quote].

Thereís also a thread in the New Users Lounge with handy explanations of how to do things like quoting and formatting your posts :)

How come you're doing 7 subjects? Was that something school made you do or was it a personal decision? :)
Also, given you're doing all 3 maths, which is your favourite?

I did 2 year 12 subjects in 2017 (as there was no year 11 subject i was intrested in one block)(I did Software Dev via Distance Ed), and I am very maths strong, so for me Further is a piece of cake with little to no homework requirment for me. My favorite maths at the moment would have to be Methods. Futher is to easy and can get boring, Specilist Mathmatics, is very hard and some of the concepts can be difficult to grasp. However it has made Methods eaiser and Physics helps me in Specilist sometimes.

My school doesn't have year levels, so as long as my teacher thinks I'm capable enough I could technically do any subject (given that I've done any prerequisites).

About a quarter of the work is basically just physics, but you also do electrical circuit stuff how certain things work (relays, capacitors, motors ect) and electrical theory. My favorite part though is the main thing you do is work on a project and write a portfolio for it. There's a little bit of book work but a majority of the subject is spent on working on a project and documenting that. I personally really like the subject but honestly I don't think it would be the best thing to do via distance ed given at least 80% of the subject is hands on and having a teacher there to troubleshoot thing with you is super useful which you wouldn't get via distance ed.

How is further going for you with it being your first 3/4 and all?

BTW I love your personal text haha
hmm...i actually dont like the classes very much because i dont really know the other ppl in there too well so i get kinda bored
the actual content i actually dont mind coz i did cambridge maths in yr 10: the further stuff is pretty much the same a bit harder obviously but i'm coping pre well. i'm always frustrated with my sac marks tho i am amazing at just missing out on top of the class with a dumb mistake that i didnt have to make  :-\
and thanks haha i've been sitting at this desk for hours and i havent started my hw yet so i thought it was kinda appropriate...thank goodness i'm only in yr 11 i'm gonna need some motivation for next yr tho

just realised you do further too  :D :D :D
which modules are you doing?
Title: Re: Make Your First Post!
Post by: PhoenixxFire on September 12, 2018, 09:30:49 pm
I tend to do my math work whilst playing music through my headphones to avoid getting bored.

Weíre doing matrices and networks - the common ones. We did the same ones in year 11 though and itís not much harder so I donít really have to try. The only time Iíve done work outside class on math is in the lead up to SACs.

Making silly mistakes in further is normal - the content itself is easy but they have to distinguish between people somehow so they word questions weirdly and stuff like that, particularly if you go to a high performing school.

Try studying in a different place! Once you start associating somewhere with relaxing itís hard to change that. Iíve had to change up where I study a few times this year because I keep getting distracted haha. Also discipline > motivation. Donít rely on motivation to make you work, youíre not going to constantly have motivation, no one does.

Post by: Ish11 on September 12, 2018, 09:51:49 pm
yup i created a spotify account solely for getting thru making my reference book for further haha
at my school they let us individually choose our modules so we're all doing different ones...is that normal?
but my school is a bit crazy. there are 16 kids in my year which is fun most of my teachers are bosses tho
i will try that thx  :)

12, about to finish. Media (defs my top subject), Music Investigation, Music Group Performance, Biology and Literature (I chose not to do English. Best decision I've ever made, TBH. Lit has been so good).

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Tough call. So many bad movies out there. I reckon for me it has to be "A Quiet Passion," the story of Emily Dickinson. News journalist Danny Katz called it "Death Rattle the Movie"- and for good reason. There were not one, not two, but THREE prolonged death scenes, and not of the exciting fight scene kind. Also, lots of completely random and unnecessary moments as well as clumsy directing. I wanted to punch most of the characters in the face and would like to be given those two hours of my life back, please.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Guns. Lots of guns. Guns made out of guns.
If I run out of bullets, I'd turn to a chainsaw.
If I run out of fuel for the chainsaw, I'll make them watch "A Quiet Passion." That should finish them off.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I would like to tell everybody to please stop destroying the planet, but nobody cares so I guess I'll just try to contribute to society.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
A January meme. If you don't understand what I'm talking about, you clearly do not know the way (I am so, so sorry I said that).

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
12, about to finish. Media (defs my top subject), Music Investigation, Music Group Performance, Biology and Literature (I chose not to do English. Best decision I've ever made, TBH. Lit has been so good).

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Tough call. So many bad movies out there. I reckon for me it has to be "A Quiet Passion," the story of Emily Dickinson. News journalist Danny Katz called it "Death Rattle the Movie"- and for good reason. There were not one, not two, but THREE prolonged death scenes, and not of the exciting fight scene kind. Also, lots of completely random and unnecessary moments as well as clumsy directing. I wanted to punch most of the characters in the face and would like to be given those two hours of my life back, please.

Welcome to atarnotes! :)

Not wanting the planet to be destroyed is very relateable (I'm studying environmental biology), and trying to break through the apathy barrier can certainly be difficult but it's always good to come across people who care.  Is there anything particular you're passionate about in regards to the planet? 

Why did you choose 2 music subjects?

Hello Hello Hello welcome to AN!!!!
First thing how is Science Extension? Been wondering what it's like  :o :o
Also, if you don't hate any movies, are there any you specifically think are terrible?

Hello!!! Thanks for the warm welcome hehe
We haven't started Science Extension (gotta wait until Term 4/Year 12). I'm interested to see what it's like too, I'll keep you posted!

I mostly just picked it for the scaling. Isn't too difficult since I have experience with it and study it outside of school. Good way to brush up on any foundation skills I might've missed  ;D

That's a cool range of subjects! Which is your fave? :))

Hard to say... I really enjoy English Language since I'm looking into linguistics / translation as a job after VCE  ;D

Hi everyone on the ATAR notes first post discussion page! Before I answer the questions, I just want to say:
I only first heard about this program a month ago and I already love it! I just want to say that I am so thankful for this amazing organisation that the ATAR notes team have put together. You guys are so genuine and supportive and that means so much to all of us stress-heads. You guys have actually inspired me to work towards my goal ATAR and degree and have also made it seem possible to achieve.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I am in my first term of year 12 (argh, help!) and I am currently studying Biology, Chemistry, SOR I, English Advanced, and Maths Ext 1 and 2. It is quite a big work load, but I'm pulling through each day at a time. :)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
This is a tough one! I'd probably have to say (for now) 'The Kissing Booth'. I just can not stand the cringyness!!

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A bow and arrow would be a cool weapon, but judging by my archery abilities, I'd probably be the first to die... :(

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
This question is quite hard to answer. Broadly speaking, I would like to be someone who lives in the image of God, leading a moral life, and I also want to be able to say that I did it; that i conquered the HSC, achieved my dream career, surrounded myself with love, experienced everything I've always wanted to. To achieve internal contentment and happiness would have to be the greatest achievment one can attain and that I guess is my ultimate goal!

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Currently, it would be:
Studying, studying, studying, studying, netflix, studying, studying, studying, studying, studying, studying, studying, studying, studying, studying, studying, studying, studying, studying, netflix, studying, studying, studying, studying, netflix, studying, studying, studying, studying, netlfix, studying, studying, studying, netflix, studying, studying studying, studying, studying, studying, netflix, studying, studying.
Not very exciting, but the plan is to sacrifice some things now (like my social life, hahah) so later on - after HSC - I will be rewarded!

Hello, hello, to aahana_xo, chu0029 and snen! Welcome to ATAR Notes, it's great to have you here. :D

@aahana_xo - good mix of subjects! What's your favourite right now? Easiest? And what are you planning to take in year 12?

@chu0029 - gaming, huh? What kind of games? And I won't ask you what your fave subject, but why two mathematics?

@snen - That sounds like a fantastic range - what's Philosophy like? What has your theme been for Studio?

Again, so neat to have y'all join. If you need anything, feel free to PM me or another moderator.
Best of luck for your exams, too!

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I started year 12 as of last week. I do adv eng, ext eng, adv math, legal, economics, modern and sor

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Flatliners (the remake). I was actually pumped to see it, trailer seemed pretty good. However, it was an absolute abomination, zero plot and made no sense.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I have no idea. A baseball bat perhaps?

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to make a difference in the world; help reform areas that are lacking, help people in need etc. Basically leave the world a better place than when I came. Yes, I know, extremely cliche.

Hey guys! I'm SŪmran! Here's a little bit about me in these questions :)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?

Year 12, starting from term 4. I'm graduating next year, still can't believe it!
I've taken English Adv, Legal Studies, Economics, Business Studies, Languages and Maths

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.

Wow this list is endless! The first to come to my mind as of now has got to be Mean Girls 2. It is so hopelessly directed, such a poor work of cinematography, cheesy dialogue and lazy direction. Clearly had no budget and the cast must've been forced to wear clothes on rent and it was so pathetic and messy, especially comparing it to it's iconic predecessor starring Rachel McAdams and Lindsay Lohan! I can go on and on about how badly they did it and totally butchered everything ugh just thinking about it burns my braincells!

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?

I'm actually so tempted to say a wine opener! I feel like it would give me a lot of flexibility in the variety of ways I could use it i.e. stabbing some moron whilst the chaotic zombie stampede, or just opening doors or using it in unexpected but creative ways I suppose!

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?

Aha this question can get pretty philosophical! I'll take this as a question asking my purpose and ambitions. Well, I am an aspiring academic. I hope to find a place in achieving a Ph.D in a subject I adore so that I can contribute to my field of interest and work as a researcher for educational institutions and do lecturing etc at universities. This is if I don't change my mind, of course! But I hope I'm happy and have a profession that feeds my insatiable curiosity and passion for knowledge and I hope I live fully and fearlessly, continuing to seek novelty and adventure in this world.

Aight thanks for reading! I hope to make new friends here in this forum!

Hmmm I just realised that I spelt Further wrong, that annoys me. I choose two math because truthfully I had no clue as to what other subject I wanted and math seemed to be the only subject I can do. It can also be pretty fun especially after studying hours for psychology ahah.
Games I play are Overwatch, bioshock, The Forest (NOT SCARY), Undertale and sometime mindless (not so mindless) games like move or die (pretty fun game) or Town of Salem.

Ah sorry I just updated it! I moved schools so I couldn't get all my subjects hence had to take whatever I got. I'm doing English Adv, Maths, ALL HUMANITIES (Lord have mercy) so that's Business Studies, Legal and Economics and I also go to Saturday School to do Hindi (only for the scaling because literally less than 30 people do it in the state and majority get a band 6 anyway)!

Haha I know, pretty random selection - but good to keep your options open right :D
Philosophy is great! Never fails to make my brain hurt but it's great.
In a similar vein to philosophy, my Studio theme is the relationship between life and art (more specifically, how people react to and are effected by art). Submitted my TopArts app last week - fingers crossed!
For some reason I didn't expect this forum to be so active and welcoming, this is so wholesome I love it!

Re: "Futher": Oh, that's an easy fix - there's an editing button to the top right of your post. Click that and you can modify any typos or whatever (although I made a grammatical error in my question to you, so we're even haha). There's no need to delete a post that way, especially when you click the blue 'reply' button down below - if you scroll under the text box provided, previous posts are listed with an 'insert quote' button to the top right. Feel free to explore your options! :)

Woah woah woah. So many new peoples. Welcome all. Great seeing new faces.


Although Atarnotes is full of a crap tonne of edumacational things there is a small games board to procrastinate have fun on.

You can find it here.

One of the games is ďcount to 20 before a mod postsĒ and recently some new mods were appointed making the game almost impossible. So long story short we need your help or the moderators are gonna keep making us loose the game with no chance.

But seriously, from my experience the games board is the best place for fun banter and to get to know some of the members, although it can be VERY addicting, you have been warned.

EDIT: and oh yeah the mods who are assigned to the games board (secretly_a_poet and insanipi) are in my opinion the best mods. So thatís another reason to procrastinate have fun on the games boards

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)

Year 12 2019! I would like to study Medicine or Nursing at university!
I do:
-English Advanced
-Chemistry
-Biology
-PDHPE
-French Beginners
-Modern History
-History Extension!

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)


TBH I don't really have a single film that I hate but for a book: I hate Trash. Like it's literally trash. The plot was, though relevant and eye-opening, reallllllllllllyyyyyyyyy boring. Couldn't stand studying it at school in year 8 rip. :( XD

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).


I would probably choose a cement mixer! If zombies are dumb, why not trap the zombies in concrete BAHA! But for a weapon: Perhaps a chain or some form of really big mace that I can swing around!

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)


I want to be an inspiring role model and a LEADER as well as someone who strives to achieve the best by fulfilling my potential - just like evryone else! I want to be able to be a voice for the voiceless as well as a support for the supportless!

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

I'm going to stick to a poem I will make up on the spot!!

Tragic
Sometimes I really have a frown
Magic
But I don't always feel so down
Archaic;
My sense of humour, I should - really get out of 'town'

Depression
Staying demotivated isn't really great
Procrastination
Striving to achieve my potential,through the help of a mate(s)
Satisfaction;
Of my unique ability and motivation to relate

Life may be a harsh crack in the street
But if you stay positive, you'll achieve a great feat

Love one another
xoxo

Glad to join!
I'm pretty keen on going to Japan and Korea after HSC (mostly because I'm a huge foodie). But I also want to possibly go on exchange during university to North America so I'm looking into that at the moment and researching different exchange programs. In terms of the specific degree, I hoping for a 98+ so I can do the dream degree of Optom at UNSW. If not, then I'm also interested in business so maybe a com/sci degree? Still figuring it all out :)

Heyy!!

Welcome to the forums... I can assure you it is the most amazing place of resources, advice, and emotional support!

How do you like Italian? I once started learning it because my elder sister was studying it for class but could never really get into it...

Nice choice of weapon!  I think it would get you through nicely.

All the best with your Year 11 & 12 studies.

Post by: Mada438 on October 29, 2018, 08:42:45 pm
Omg, i realised i never did one of these when i first joined the forums. So I'm gonna do one now  ;D

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory) Graduated from year 12 now (was just starting year 12 when i joined). I do (or is it did now?) Advanced English, General Maths, Society and Culture, Business Studies and Modern History

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)The Truman Show-I did this movie for a study of film in year 10 and we watched it like 5 times. Then all of my younger cousins made me watch it when they did it at their schools (In year 7 and 8). That equates to like 10-11 times I've watched it and its gotten to the point where i break it down so much and analyze everything like i did in year 10 and it made me despise it.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory). A sharp, but short sword. Small and easy to carry around, not much weight, silent, and is good for beheading zombies when they get to close (if they ever catch me  ;) )

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)I want to be happy with where i am in life; surrounded by good friends, living my best life. I want to reach a point of maturity and enlightenment where i can help others always. In life i want to be remembered for the memories i make with my friends, and how i make them feel. Because people won't remember what you said or did, but for how you made them feel. I want to know i make peoples lives better.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional). In the holidays or when i don't have school work (and what i will do post hsc). Get up at 6, work out, eat breakie, go learn a new skill or something (e.g I'm gonna learn Italian post hsc) go to work, go to the gym/do martial arts training, come home, watch tv, go out with friends, go to bed. Repeat.

I'm in year 12 and currently studying Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English and Mathematical Methods.

What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.

Coraline. Hands down the creepiest movie I have ever watched. My 10 year old self is quaking 😂 seriously though, it still gives me nightmares. 😲

In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?

I would probably be hiding but if I had to choose a weapon I would pick a frying pan because well, have you seen tangled? 😂

Welcome to AN ;D
What's your favourite subject?

Post by: jazcstuart on October 29, 2018, 10:36:59 pm
Omg, i realised i never did one of these when i first joined the forums. So I'm gonna do one now  ;D

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory) Graduated from year 12 now (was just starting year 12 when i joined). I do (or is it did now?) Advanced English, General Maths, Society and Culture, Business Studies and Modern History

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)The Truman Show-I did this movie for a study of film in year 10 and we watched it like 5 times. Then all of my younger cousins made me watch it when they did it at their schools (In year 7 and 8). That equates to like 10-11 times I've watched it and its gotten to the point where i break it down so much and analyze everything like i did in year 10 and it made me despise it.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory). A sharp, but short sword. Small and easy to carry around, not much weight, silent, and is good for beheading zombies when they get to close (if they ever catch me  ;) )

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)I want to be happy with where i am in life; surrounded by good friends, living my best life. I want to reach a point of maturity and enlightenment where i can help others always. In life i want to be remembered for the memories i make with my friends, and how i make them feel. Because people won't remember what you said or did, but for how you made them feel. I want to know i make peoples lives better.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional). In the holidays or when i don't have school work (and what i will do post hsc). Get up at 6, work out, eat breakie, go learn a new skill or something (e.g I'm gonna learn Italian post hsc) go to work, go to the gym/do martial arts training, come home, watch tv, go out with friends, go to bed. Repeat.
Hi, welcome to Atar Notes!!! (Just kidding, thought you deserved a welcome  ;D )

I love the Truman Show!!! Completely get the over analysing point though, we studied The Castle in year 9 and spent a full lesson on the opening minute, so I cringe every time I see it. It's still one of my favourite movies though.

Anyway congrats on graduating and finishing most of your exams! Hope they have gone well.

Also welcome _AishahC_!

I just want to be someone I can be proud of, I want to be able to say I have made a difference in society that betters the community. In terms of achievements, I want to achieve total and complete happiness in life. 😊



Welcome to the forums!!!!

Firstly subjects..... Guessing you mean finishing Year12??? If so... ATB with the VCE.

Loving the choice of weapon. Havent seen tangled but there is so many opportunities with it..... Cooking a killer meal (take it as you want) and protection and attacking..... Well thought through.....

Loving who you want to be..... Go for it. 😁

Year 12, Class of 2019.
English Standard
Mathematics Standard
Studies of Religion (1 unit)
PDHPE
Ancient History
Legal Studies
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
The movie RANGO. Honestly just found it very BORING. Went and saw it with my family and my mum left half way through the movie because we were all so bored.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Harry Potter's Cloak of Invisibility --> so I can hide from the zombies and go wherever I want without danger!
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be the best person I can be! I want to follow my goals and achieve a great ATAR + last year of school, I would love to go to university and look into possible pathways to take for my future! :)
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I'm really fortunate to have loving family and friends, I've never been the most intelligent, talented or outstanding person but I have always tried my hardest and put in lots of effort to achieve my goals and be a good person. I really enjoy just being involved in the community, I am in the Surf Club, I do lots of sports and in-school extracurriculars such as netball and debating! I am heavily involved in leadership in and out of school and also love a bit of competitiveness.

Have any questions feel free to ask!!!!!!!

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in year 11 studying 3/4 Biology (the oxygen I breathe), 1/2 Chem, 1/2 Maths Methods (the lactic acid), 1/2 Indonesian SL, 1/2 English Language.
My bio exam is in 3 days and I'm rigorously trying to protect my insanity before then.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Frozen. Never actually watched it but all the four-year-old female hype was irritating and teachers have seized the opportunity to play 'let it go' in class whenever a student argues for a mark on a SAC.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A life-sized cytotoxic T cell dispenser gun. Why waste time combating individual brain-crazed pathogenic zombies when you could bring the human immune system to life and launch an army of lymphocytes to attack run around attacking them for you.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I don't know exactly how it looks but I know my future career/s will involve science and healthcare. I'm feeling the paramedicine vibe at the moment. But that could quickly speciate into nursing, biomed, physio... who knows! ('It's complicated').
Goal for the next few years - get a good ATAR, maintain healthy life balance - social time and part time work, save money for future and have some fun while I'm at it. Oh and netflix and memes (like every other VCE student)

Hello everyone! A friend told me to make an account so here I am :)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Year 11 right now, and currently doing two 3/4 subjects for VCE: Dance & Literature
I did VET Music Performance last year (couldn't find it on the list of VCE subjects when I signed up though).
My current 1/2s are further maths, methods (yuck), psychology, and biology, though I might drop bio.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I passionately dislike (because I refuse to hate anything ;D) Honey I shrunk the kids.
Justification? The plot's nice, but after a while it feels as if the filmmakers just thought "Alright, let's throw some darts at the wheel of plots and see what we can come up with to fill 2 hours."

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
No need for weapons. Just basic coordination because as long as I don't trip I can outrun them.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
A professional chocolate taste tester for Cadbury.
Though right now I just want to do well on my 3/4s (exams are so soon yikes!) and get a good ATAR (I know, how boring.)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Been busily converting oxygen to carbon dioxide for the past 16 years.

Batman v Superman, like legit 30 seconds of them fighting and the rest was a blur.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A Ray Gun, take me back to my Call of Duty - Black ops 2 days

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to improve the health and wellbeing of those around the world, whether that may be through volunteer work, etc. I want to live a life were I can say that I've done and experienced it all.

So I thought to make a post after using Atar Notes for a while, as its been a great help throughout my studies this past year!




1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in year 10 currently, and I study VCE Biology, Units 1&2 as well as my electives, which range from Advanced Maths and Psychology.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
So I have to think deeply about this one.. umm probably this movie called 'Everything Everything'. Justification would probably be that it was an entire butcher of the book, and was very poorly executed as a movie to the far more fluent and better written book.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
So I had to scroll down to see the other replies for this one, not much of a zombie apocalypse enthusiast, probably a gun of somesort, to fire from distances, and umm fast running abilities? As you can see I'm finding this a bit difficult.
b]4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)[/b]
I want to be known for my kindness, generosity and just overall warmth as a person. As to what I want to achieve, a steady income, and a highflying career I enjoy and excel at.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Honestly a whirlwind. Perhaps a bit too much to fit in one paragraph, but a whirlwind would be the most summative way of articulating my liffe.

Hi I'm Akasha - (and it took me way too long than is normal to figure out how to post)
1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm currently in Year 12, studying;
- 2 Unit English    - Extension English    - 2 Unit Math   - Biology     - Chemistry     -Society and Culture     - Information Process Technology 

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I don't really watch a lot of movies, the people work so hard to produce something enticing and hope its loved, that being said, I absolutely despise Twilight (cliche I know) but it is arguably the worst adaptation of a book to a film ever known to mankind. The characters are bland and emotionless, no one has a defined motive there's no character arc !! (though I wouldn't know really because i never finished the film.)

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I read somewhere that Zombies cant bite through denim or leather, so I would just go all 90's wearing a full suit of denim.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be someone who's known for bringing light to a situation with their positivity, to put smiles on people by doing good, and just generally making the world a tiny bit better.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
 "w h a t", just 'what is happening'

Hey akasha, welcome to the forums!

Don't worry, you're not the only one who has struggled to figure out how to do things, which is why there's this post.


That's a really interesting mix of subjects, is there a particular path you want to follow in the future?

(love your goal for who you want to be btw)

Yesssssss. Good! Keep doing them and don't stop. No matter how bad year 12 gets, it's important to maintain a good school/life balance using your extra curriculars. All the best for your final year!  :D

Love thissssss!!  ;D ;D

Thank you for the warm welcome!
I absolutely love society and culture, I didn't expect to but its definitely one of my favorite subject and the only class I don't dread going to. I have started brainstorming for my PIP,  I have way too many ideas and I haven't picked on yet. I will be going to 'PIP Day' in a couple of days so by then I expect to have a solid idea.
A few of the ones i did have are ;
- American Imperialism in the Middle East (or Western Imperialism in Pakistan)
- Nuclear bomb testing still happening in rural areas (and maybe how has nagasaki/hiroshima effected that)
- The real victims of 9/11 (increase of prejudice and who ultimately paid the price)
- Terrorism in Western vs Eastern countries (double standards/news outlets)
- Ethnic Cleansing (myanmar/bosnia)
- Representation of Pakistanis in western media (how they must adapt when living in western areas)
- Its assimilation if the east come to the west, yet oppression if the west live in the east.
- How has humor evolved (is it too pc? what role did social media play?does it need t be offensive to be funny)
- Interest of adolescents then vs now
- portrayal of women in modern adventure/ action films (marvel maybe)
- How media drives people into intense opinions
-Depiction of superheroes/ why they are still so relevant/important
- To what extent do TV shows portray real life and how can it affect others?
- The relationships between generations and the inevitable 'my generation was way better'
- Sexualisation of music videos vs before
- The different standards to which people of a particular race are held
- Why has you tube taken over TV as form of entertainment? How impressionable has you tubers become?
- The perpetuating notion of the 'Modern Muslim'
The list is super long (sorry!) and these are only some of the ones I've had. Any advise on how or which one I should choose? (sorry again for the long list!)

That is quite a large list!
My advice would be to look at the requirements of the pip and write basic plans based on the pip requirements (such as research methods, hypothesis, chapter focuses, etc) to see which ones have alot of different angles for you to explore and then pick the ones that make the most sense and include the most diversity while also being interesting.

Good luck!  ;D

Welcome!
I love maths too - are you doing specialist as well as general/further and methods?
What do you want to do after school? Maths & Chem sound like a pretty good combo!
I couldn't agree more on the horror movie comment... I HATE them! I watched IT until the clown comes out of a drain - never knew clowns could be so scary! 😮😏😫

Yeah lol definitely not first post. Mostly a lurker here but still here goes:

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?(Mandatory).
Just started Year 12 doing 4U English, 2U Maths, SOR I, Biology and Entertainment Industry (best course, change my mind)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory).
Oh, I'm more of a gamer than a film buff so I'll just tell you a game I passionately hate: Street Fighter V. Used to love and play so much of it but the gameplay didn't allow for a lot of creativity compared to other fighting games which caused me to stagnate in skill. Wins and losses became less satisfying  and more frustrating respectively. Too many anti-consumer practices with DLC, the netcode is broken beyond belief. Really just a horrible, horrible stain on Capcom's otherwise great legacy.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A gun. For myself of course. It's a zombie apocalypse, I'm not waiting to see the worst.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Really I just want to grow up to have a simple life with a balance for work, family and of course, video games. As long as my work allows for continual skill improvement and fulfillment, pay is secondary. There needs to be a balance of pleasure and pain otherwise life's boring.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I like to mark out years of my life by the best games I've played:
2003: Super Mario 64
2006: New Super Mario Bros
2008: Elite Beat Agents
2011: Super Mario Galaxy
2013: Minecraft
2014: Persona 4 Golden
2015: Zelda Majora's Mask
2016: Super Smash Bros. 4
2017: Persona 5
2018: At the moment probably Undertale

Currently in Year 12 studying Maths Extension 2 and 1, English Advanced, Chemistry, Physics, and Business Studies.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A machine gun  :P

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)

Just finished year 12 as an adult..  Physics, Methods, Specialist, Literature. Whilst running a business. Definitely took on way too much but loved it :)

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

I don't watch too many movies but I remember watching "The Perfect Storm" and thinking.. what a waste of time for something that could have been summarized in one line.. i.e. some men go to sea and die in a big storm.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).


Poker face. Meditation.. all that.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)


I have achieved a huge part of what I want to achieve which is feeling the enjoyment of learning as a pursuit. I also want to achieve 'being a nicer person' to others but not too interested in going after 'being someone'.

5. If you had to summarize your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

One paragraph is not going to cut it I'm afraid  ;D

Welcome to the forums! :)

I'm just starting up my own business atm (ordered stock in yesterday and will be setting up a site next week), what type of business do you run?

Can definitely get behind learning for it's own sake - was this part of your motivation for year 12?

Thanks for the welcome and best of luck with your new business. I run a small software engineering recruitment/consulting outfit in Melbourne. My motivation for year 12 was to scratch an itch I have had for years with Physics, for health reasons I didn't complete my education the way I would have hoped first time around. I tested myself with Unit 2 Methods and Physics before going head first into the whole lot for Year 12. I may scrape onto a degree for next year but might do Spesh and Methods instead to get a better conceptual understanding of the basics.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Recently just finished my year 12 exams so I'm kinda in limbo at the moment ;D For VCE I did lit, methods, history, glopol, chemistry, and a LOTE. I also did mainstream English, psychology, and physics 1/2.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Mean Girls. I think it's overhyped. Fight me.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Books, because knowledge is POWER
Actually, an extremely strong laser that disintegrates zombies upon impact would be nice.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
A helpful and knowledgeable person that helps others achieve their goals.

Nice! Good luck with VCE in these next 2 years.
Your line up looks a lot like what I did back in Year 10/ 11, just switch out Literature for Eng Lang and Bio for Japanese SL (or Economics U1/2) - that's pretty much it.

What career path are you hoping for after Year 12?

This is hard, to be honest. 'Suicide Squad', perhaps? I couldn't even watch the full movie. I just didn't enjoy or understand it. Please don't fight me.

Hey everyone!  I'm Emily and I will be starting VCE next year.  I wanted to do an advanced subject (Biology) this year but I decided to travel for six months in Germany instead. 

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I just finished Year 10 yesterday, but next year I will be doing: Literature, General, Methods, Biology, Chemistry and 20th Century History.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
A movie that I hate...is it bad that I don't really watch movies?  Probably "Four Weddings and a Funeral" because no matter how many times I try to watch it, I just can never get past the first ten or so minutes and find that it is an absolute bore.  I feel as though I have a stronger disliking towards another film but I can't remember it to save my life at this stage.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Imma say a cricket bat will do the trick.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I honestly have no idea who I want to be in life - all I do know is that I do not wish to sit inside four walls and be bored.  I need to be constantly learning and using information for a greater good that benefits the wider community; I aim to be successful but not in the hopes for fame or fortune but rather so others will live an easier life and perhaps I may have touched them in some way; and I know that I need to see the world a million times over before I die.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I would liken my life to that of the ocean.  A stretch of ocean in the South Pacific with its tumultuous waters obliterating any vessel that dares cross its treacherous path, yet it is not always doom and gloom for the ocean holds many valuable secrets and treasures, and has been described as one of the most beautiful aspects of nature.  The way it glitters as the sun rises and sets, the infinite number of layers to its depths and the times when it is calm and cooperative and perhaps even peaceful.

Thank you for the warm welcome!  Eh, Year 10 isn't hard but thank you for the congratulations - I think I only did about 3 months at school this year xD  Germany was absolutely incredible, I loved it and I miss it so much.  I was staying in Bavaria so there was so much natural beauty and I did so much travelling by myself all around Germany.  My host family also took me to Austria and Italy which are equally as beautiful.

Oh my gosh I am glad I am not the only one - I much prefer books over movies, in a heartbeat.

I found the forums through one of my friends last year actually, she was very academically focused and advanced, but I didn't join until November this year.

No stress! I wouldn't undersell Year 10. I personally found it more difficult than Year 12 (not necessarily academically, but as you know, that's only one part of it!). Germany - that sounds sooooo good. Super jealous hahaha. Do you plan to go back?

Regarding movies, I've got your back. 😉 I literally made a thread last year called "Movies are shit" hahahaha.

I guess it's difficult for me to pass judgement on Year 10 as a whole seeing as I haven't really been there for much of the year, even academically it wasn't hard but maybe that's because I started not giving a damn about workload and doing the bare minimum to pass but still ended up with better than average scores?  Who knows.  As for socially, eh, I'd much rather my own company or one or two other people than a hoard of others (unless it's a music concert, then I'm down in a heartbeat).  I am planning to go back to Europe for schoolies in 2020 actually, but by myself and catching up with the friends I made there.  Next Christmas I'll be in Japan visiting family and going to Hawaii again for a few days to meet up with a friend I met last month on my cruise back from Hawaii to Sydney :)  I have a travel bug that is never satisfied.

Oh my gosh, I think that's the best thread I have ever seen on a forum xD

Hello ;) I'm James, my sister is on ATAR Notes and told me to make an account so here I am.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in year 9 year 10 transition. This year I did all the boring core subjects plus units 1&2 biology and french.
Next year I'll be doing units 3&4 biology and physical education (goodbye french!)
In year 11 I'm planning to do 3&4 HHD and chemistry, and finally 3&4 literature and maths methods in year 12, along with two bludge subjects.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Any movie where a dog dies. Does this need justification?

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A heavy pole. Honestly, it's not hard. Zombies are just lumps of decomposing bone, tendon and muscle. First you immobilise the zombie by breaking its legs using the pole, then calmly proceed with decapitation.
Who needs fancy weapons?

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
This is gonna sound so boring and cliched... so get ready to roll your eyes - I want to study medicine and become a doctor. ::)
I mean, sure you make a ton of money and people look up to you and all that crap, but I want to study medicine because I've seen first hand the difference a doctor can make in someone's life and the hope you can give to not just the person who's sick but also their family and friends, and I want to do the same one day.

Any movie where a dog dies. Does this need justification?

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A heavy pole. Honestly, it's not hard. Zombies are just lumps of decomposing bone, tendon and muscle. First you immobilise the zombie by breaking its legs using the pole, then calmly proceed with decapitation.
Who needs fancy weapons?

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
This is gonna sound so boring and cliched... so get ready to roll your eyes - I want to stu usdy medicine and become a doctor. ::)
I mean, sure you make a ton of money and people look up to you and all that crap, but I want to study medicine because I've seen first hand the difference a doctor can make in someone's life and the hope you can give to not just the person who's sick but also their family and friends, and I want to do the same one day.
Welcome to the forums, James! What has been your favourite subject so far? :)
I feel you on your answer to the second question - movies where dogs die are so sad. :(
Interesting choice of weapon! I trust you to defeat all the zombies that attempt to annihilate in the event of an apocalypse! :D

How come your school lets you do 2 3/4s in year 10? Is it normal at your school? (Also good choice on 3/4 bio ;))

Thank you :D So far my favourite subject is bio, without a doubt! 1&2 chem is a close second.
And hell yeah I'll be ruthlessly unleashing my powers if a zombie apocalypse ever happens. ;D

How come your school lets you do 2 3/4s in year 10? Is it normal at your school? (Also good choice on 3/4 bio ;))
It's not uncommon - each year there's about five or six students who do two 3&4s in year 10. Someone did 3 last year. There's no rule on that sort of stuff at my school, it's sort of like if you think you can handle the workload, and if your grades have been decent, then go ahead.
And yes I agree bio is amaaaazing. (I see you did 3&4 bio early too - how did you find it? Congrats on your score by the way! Any tips on doing well? ;D)

Sounds a lot like my school haha
Bio was and always will be my favourite VCE subject ;D
I think my most important tip is to make sure you understand everything youíre learning as youíre learning it, donít try and cram at the end it wonít work 😂 (also, thereís a post in the VCE bio board with links to heaps of guides and other resources which are super useful ^-^)

No, I did not do any 3/4 subjects this year, due to the limited selection offered at school. I decided to continue to revolutions after completing units 1/2 global empires, as I enjoy historical studies.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.

i dont hate it, but it was disappointing. Split. i was so excited to watch it after seeing the trailer and hearing about the plot. i enjoyed the movie up until the ending. i didn't really like the supernatural (?) element, it ruined it for me  :-\

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?

a grenade? anything that lets me not get too close. although i would probably be hiding away to avoid having to use it

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?


i want to be happy with the person i am and succeed in whatever path i end up taking. as for the specifics, i'll cross those bridges when they come

Hey Everyone!

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm a Class of 19' student, and will be undertaking Math Methods, English Language, Philosophy, Legal Studies and German in 2019, having done Business Management in 2018.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I don't hate a particular movie, but since I think it still fits the question; I absolutely despise any house renovation TV show. I feel like thhey're self defeating, and just don't have any time for them, and hopefully I never will.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
My trusty tennis racquet! I've seen it used before, so in a zombie apocalyse I'm sure I wouldn't feel bad trying it out.  ;D
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I really want to do something important and contribute to society, hopefully doing something I enjoy and that I can do for a long time. What that is, I honestly have no idea yet.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I'm not good at these ones! I'm your stereotypical nerd who isn't really that smart but loves playing sport and has done so since I could walk. My life has been full of unexpected surprises, mostly good but never boring. I probably make up for that excitement by being the most secluded person I know, but I can't tell if that's by choice or just because people don't like me, probably the latter. :'( Not something I can really work on in Year 12 though but I'll try!   :-[

I'm hoping to stay pretty active around here, so feel free to say hi or PM me at any point!  :) Hope I can positively contribute to discussion!

Do you have a favourite subject at school?
Hi! I wouldn't say I have a single favourite anymore, but more that each subject serves a purpose and I hope that carries me through Year 12  :P

Methods for its objectivity, Philosophy for its class discussion, Legal for its relevance and general interest in current affairs, German for a different perspective on life (sorta goes with Philosophy actually!) and EngLang because I feel like I "missed out" on learning how English is structured in primary school, and that until 2018 it adversely affected my performance in English. That said, there's a lot of things that I believe primary schools should teach, that they don't.  :-X

Busman was probably my all-round 'favourite', but some unfortunate circumstances this year resulted in it not being as enjoyable as I would've liked, and unsurprisingly a lower study score than I would've preferred, but that's what doing a VCE subject early is for, right?

In hindsight, I probably would've chosen Global Politics over Business, because I'm interested in both but having committed to BusMan in Yr10, I didn't realise until it was too late...but thinking back to Year 10 now I also really wish I'd pushed to do more VCE subjects early, something I don't think schools advocate enough. That's in the past now though, onwards and upwards!

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?

I can finally say this without making that new year's joke - I finished year 12 last year! So I guess my year level is now first year uni student if that counts? Although I'm still not sure which institution I'll be enrolling at.
As for subjects, my main ones were English, Methods, Biology and Indonesian  ;D
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

Iron man 3. I mean, wow, what a let down after a couple of solid marvel films. The whole time Tony stark just exuded this self-centered and arrogant persona and during the moments when his PTSD was affecting him I was just constantly thinking this is acting... This is a film. No suspension of disbelief and a somewhat pathetically and ironically excessive ending to the point that I stoped taking it seriously. (Rant over, normally calm and collected persona returns ;) )

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

Ooh I would say something deep like ability to interact with zombiekind and reach some sort of truce but I'd be wayy too scared to do something like that. How about instead, extreme high pressure water hose?

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

Short term goal: Get into my course at uni
Long term goals: Find happiness and security,,, eg buy a house, find a life partner, get a stable income, be content with the passage of life... Nothing too out there
Oh also to be someone that people trust and appreciate

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
So far, it's been the prologue and first introductory paragraphs of the novel. The one where you kinda skip over cause you're not entirely sure what's been happening and are keen to get into the actual storyline, only to realise later on in the book that some pretty key moments and key ideas were introduced.

Welp, hope all that formatting worked :/ thanks for reading!

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I am currently in Year 12 doing the HSC (fun times if you have new syllabuses for your courses). My subjects are Standard English, Standard Mathematics 2, Modern History, Geography and Business Studies.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
The Neverending Story. That flipping movie was ALWAYS on repeat at home as a kid and it just scared the crap out of me. Now, I watch movies and I tend to like them but some just confuse me (like everything else which is fine by me)

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
Nuclear Weapons. It will definitely wipe the zombies out right? Just need to have good international relations (with the USA and Russia) so we can use them.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
I want to be a person with a good purpose. I want to know what I am doing is for a good purpose and not just for comfort. Also, I want to be able to stand up for what is right (that kinda relates to having a good purpose but it is different if you get what I mean).

There is things I want to achieve in the short term and the long term.
Short term achievements I want to accomplish is:

Long-term achievements I want to accomplish are:

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say?
My life actually has been eventful. I have experienced different lifestyles since I've been born (country lifestyle, semi-rural lifestyle and residential lifestyle - three really different ways of life but I did enjoy all of them). Also, it has always been chaotic with my family. I'm just ready to change up my life (which happens in like 11 months and I'm so excited about that). I love my friends and family very dearly and cannot wait til HSC finishes so I can spend time with them before uni starts.

Hi chris_tina_ !!

First of all, welcome to the forums! It's going to be great to have you on here to share your Year 12 journey with all of us :)

Nuclear weapons, a very interesting choice I must say. Let's just hope it won't fuel the current nuclear crisis in North Korea.

I love your goal setting, especially how you have broken it up into short and long term. This will give you a very clear sense of direction and purpose for the next coming 10-11 months. Just with your goal of achieving a state rank, it's amazing to set high expectations for yourself but I hope you won't be disappointed if it wasn't meant to be. Achieving a Band 6 in any subject is already an amazing achievement, so anything after that (eg. a state rank) is a bonus!

Were you interesting in getting into any specific degree at uni?

Anyways, good to have you on the forums and looking forward to your contributions ;D

I am in Year 11 this year, first year to do the ATAR system in Queensland (btw, can anyone enlighten me on any important general details with this system?). I will be doing: Chemistry, Biology, Mathematical Methods, Specialist Maths, General English and Physics.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
tbh, I'm not exactly a great fan of movies - documentaries interest me more. I know, I know... :o

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
Similarly, I;m not greatly acquainted with the concept, but, you know, maybe travel back in time to prevent whatever caused this apocalypse. I'm really not too sure.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to go to the University of Queensland and study undergraduate/provisional entry medicine, get an ATAR of 99.95 and 100th percentile in the UCAT. And I guess I can't really leave out getting rich...

Welcome to AN Twisty314!

What sort of documentaries do you watch?

The way ATARs are calculated vary a bit between states and I'm not sure how Queenslands work, but basically they add up your scores for each subject you do and then rank everyone and from that you get your ATAR - for example if you get an ATAR of 80 then you beat 80% of the state. (ATARs are used nationally but calculated separately in each state).

I really enjoy watching any Maths or Science related documentaries. I also enjoy reading a lot on the same sought of subjects too.

Hey there! Welcome to AN! I've seen your journal and love it so far. It's great to see a younger user join us! (and I personally agree when it comes to Usain Bolt's legs vs. zombies)

If you need any help feel free to PM me - otherwise, see you around! 😊

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in Year 12 as of 2019 (wow that's scary) and I am doing Math Ext 1 and 2, English Adv and Ext 1, Economics and Japanese Continuers.
 
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I really really really dislike Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. I went to see it with my friends despite the bad reviews it got, because how bad could it REALLY be? Although it provided some progression in the story and character development, there were two fundamental flaws for me:
- the misnomer title for the movie in which Grindelwald was simply established as "bad" rather than focusing too much on his crimes
- the lack in continuity across the Harry Potter franchise (but that isn't really new *cough cough*) and the information in this film contradicting the original Harry Potter timeline
I walked away disappointed at the ending, but I can give it credit for being a decent (not satisfactory) film. I don't think it was crafted as well as the first Fantastic Beasts film was though, and hence the ensuing disappointing reviews.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Give me a sword any day. Fencing foils won't be as effective because they're not sharp. I'm pretty sure I can swing a sword though :)

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
My short term goal is to get into a good communications course, and my aim is to complete my HSC without any regrets. I'm the type of person who doesn't want to live with regrets that I could have easily avoided. Regrets are a part of life, but I want to do my best while not compromising my values, relationships, and kindness towards others. Machiavelli, I'm looking at you.

Thanks for reading, and I hope I can contribute ^^

Hi Melberry, welcome to the forums!!

I really want to see Crimes of Grindewald, so now I am slightly scared it won't live up to my expectations haha!  Also love the goals that you have made for yourself - can definitely empathise with wanting to uphold personal values.

Are there any particular universities you are interested in for communication?

Crimes of Grindelwald isn't outright horrible but I feel that die-hard Potterheads would nitpick at continuity issues. The world itself is still gorgeous and there were pockets of moments I thought were beautiful, so perhaps you will find some redeeming qualities of the film yourself :D

I'm very interesting in taking UTS' Public Communication course, but I have UNSW and Macquarie Uni Communication courses as backup plans. I intend on taking a double degree, pairing Communications with BCII (UTS) or Commerce (UNSW)

Hiya Iím Gracie!
1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)

Year 12 as of 2019- subjects are Biology, English Advanced, French Continuers (accelerated and luckily got a Band 6 yay!), French Extension, Italian Beginners and Legal Studies.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Ok so thereís a few that spring to mind but one that I really didnít like was ĎHopí. Idk if anyone else remembers the Easter movie with Russell Brand and Kaley Cuoco but the geez it dragged on. Especially disappointing for me since Iím a total advocate for sappy movies - ofc I even cried in Finding Dory (who wouldnít cry when animated fish find their parents omg what has the HSC done to me Iím an emotional wreck lol).

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Any of my maths notes up until the time I dropped *ahhh bliss*. They were so bad they would surely stay away (and if they wanted they could keep the notes as a peace offering I would love to get rid of all of them anyway XD).

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
My main purpose day to day in my interactions with other people is to be the person that hopefully made them laugh that day or made them feel more welcomed/ included. The greatest feeling I ever get is making people laugh or smile (sorry to be cheesy haha).

I think I want to end up in health which is bit of a lol when looking at my subjects but I reckon it may work in the end. Used to want to go into diplomacy but now not sure :/

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
ĎA boba a day keeps the HSC at bayí jks because nothing makes the HSC stay away and my wallet is too empty for bobas rn ;(

Ok - she dedicated herself to her passions, especially foreign languages, and her greatest joy was spreading joy and >trying to< share jokes with everyone she met :)

Hi there Gracie!
That's so cool that you study more than one language at school! I also agree that genuine laughs and smiles can make my day ^^

Hi Guys! I was struggling upon making my first post until I watched the video and wanted to know how I could start a new topic.

Another thing for english standard HSC, we have received a shit ton of homework and got the following question:

Plan and write an extended response for Billy Elliot ( under timed conditions)
Q.Through the telling and receiving of stories, we become more aware of ourselves and our shared human experiences. Explore this statement with close
reference to your prescribed text.


I didn't quite get how to answer the question other than the fact that for planning, I would need to research the verb in the question.
If its ok, I would prefer a lecturer to look at this. P.S I also need help in general breaking down questions for english standard... as in planning them..

thanks!

Hello! To start a new topic, simply go to the relevant board (EG - HSC English Standard), and click the "New Topic" button, it is in the top middle-ish of the page, in blue! It will come up with a window to enter a title and your question/whatever you like ;D

Essentially what this question is asking you to do is explore the role of stories in the human experience. This is very broad - You can define 'stories,' and of course 'human experience,' in a lot of different ways! To explore it just means to present some concepts (EG - Stories enrich our human experience by providing us with perspectives we would otherwise never experience) and present how those concepts are represented in Billy Elliot ;D

So I'd be coming up with some key ideas, and trying to find evidence (quotes/techniques) to back yourself up!

Feel free to post any other English questions in our English Standard Q+A! :)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
At the moment, i'm in year 12, 2019! My subjects are modern, english adv, 3u maths, chemistry and legal studies. I used to do physics, but I dropped before my first internal exam, because I didn't really like the classroom environment and the pressure to do well.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
The Kissing Booth. Super predictable plot (the title pretty much says it - two people falling in love at a kissing booth) and poor character development (cough cough) Noah. I skipped through so many parts of The Kissing Booth because it was that cringe worthy. Here's a video that sums up my thoughts pretty well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UKaaEvH7uI&t=2s.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Invisibility, so that the zombies won't be able to see me.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Sounds super cheesy, but I want to be happy and enjoy my life in the present moment, even during hard times. That being said, I want everyone that I meet to also be happy and feel included. If I'm being honest, I'm not really sure what I want to do in the future but I know I'll figure it sometime before HSC - maybe medicine or psychology? I have no idea.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
James Charles saying "here's the tea" for five minutes straight because if you know me in real life, trendy phrases (aka. yeet) are essentially apart of my vocabulary. But also I love chatime that much - my go to order is peach fruit tea with no pearls, if you are wondering. Ok if I'm being serious about this, I'd say the Nike slogan of 'just do it' because life is too short to not try something new and the experience you get out of it is so worth it. Without having a go, I can definitely say that I would not be the person that I am today.

That's an interesting group of subjects, were you motivated by interest for all of them?
I like that you're finding pacifist responses even to the zombie apolocalypse

not really hehe xd
i chose vcd cos of my interest in it and also cos that's related to what i want to do in the future. and i also had studio arts last year but i thought 2 folio subjects would be too much so i ended up in history, which i am kind of interested in. the others are more for the sake of keeping options open.
i became interested in urban planning recently, it's always changing hehe! idk, i just really like looking at buildings and pointing out all the things i would change.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Oh gosh, um... You know, I don't think I watch enough movies to passionately hate one, but I know I either have a knack for avoiding them if I think I won't like it - that, or I'm just really good at suppressing those memories.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I would say chainsaw but I don't think I should be trusted with a chainsaw. Granted, I shouldn't be trusted with much.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I have noooo idea! I'm interested in the medical field and that's why I'm here. I want to be happy and make others happy.

Are you only going to do 4 VCE subjects or have you already done one/are you planning on picking up another next year?

I do know that I like cool shirts, cats, and the color purple.
How do you feel about cool purple shirts with pictures of cats?

Hi there! ;D Thank you! Forgive my inexperience with forums, I hope I'm doing this right! >A>''
My favorite subject - oh no, hahaha, now you've got me worried! - I'm urged to say Psychology.. but Biology is undoubtedly a close second!

I'm definitely considering picking up a 5th subject in Year 12! (Likely extended research?)
And oh. my. GOD. That shirt is INCREDIBLE and I want it. Oh my life. Thank you for the welcome.. and the amazing shirt! (I didn't even know all of my favorite things could be in one place like that..)

Well you haven't broken the forums yet so I reckon you're doing it right!

Hmmm I hope biology is a very close second, but I did enjoy psychology so I'll let you off this time ;)

I actually tried to find a photo of a cat wearing a purple shirt but it turns out that it's rather difficult to find a photo of that, so I figured that photo would be the next best option

Welcome to atarnotes! :D

Doing 5 3/4 subjects in year 12 is pretty normal - I'd guess it's the most common amount actually :)
Tasmania, but that means only 5 subjects will go to my ATAR I wonít get the 10% of the sixth.

What state did you move from btw?

Although I am currently waiting on changing Methods to General and Chem to Studio Arts being as that I find myself enjoying arts much more and am struggling to find any joy in Chem and Methods.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Movie I hate...? Nothing really comes to mind, at least I don't remember watching a movie I hated so much.

I'm in Year 11 and doing Chemistry, Physics, Literature, Math Specialist, Math Methods and Music - All ATAR

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I've gotta admit that Total Recall was my least favourite movie, I dont really hate any movie - honestly I dont really watch an excessive amount of movies
The only real reason to dislike total recall was because I fell asleep while watching it


3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A Katana would be my weapon of choice. - Yes you would have to get closer up to them but then again you wouldn't run out of ammo.
Alternatively I would also use a silenced Barrett M82 - Long distance silenced sniper rifle is always helpful

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I'm not entirely sure - maybe Architect or engineer in robotics or maybe a music producer. - TBH i dont really know yet

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Don't live life with regrets, live it with memories.

I'm in Year 11 and right now I'm doing methods, chemistry, english language,
psychology, legal studies and 3/4 religion and society

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
Those air buddy movies and anything with talking dogs in them. They weren't
a part of my childhood and do not bring any memories of joy only flashbacks to
my younger siblings making watch them.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
zombies are gonna catch these fiery hands maybe like a baseball bat?
I wanna look bad-ass but a chainsaw or an axe would be too heavy to carry
around. Baseball bats are easy to find, not too heavy and I'm not gonna
accidentally cut off my arm with it.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
I don't know what I wanna do with my life but I'd like to be famous that'd be
pretty cool but I wanna be like a maroon 5 member that isn't Adam Levine
kind of famous so I can still have a private life

Hello! IDK if I'm doing this right but here we go ---

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm currently in year 9.
Subjects: all the core ones, so english, maths, humanities, science, and Lote (Chinese)
I'm hoping to do 2 vce subjects next year (one 3/4 and one 1/2). Haven't decided which ones yet but I'm juggling between psychology, health, and possibly media.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Oh jeezus. IDK?? First movie to come to mind is the film adaptation of the Book Thief. Horrible acting IMO.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Nuclear weapons.
LOL jk. I think a good ol' baseball bat will do the trick.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I've always wanted to become a counselor or therapist specifically working with children. Recently I've also taken an interest in media and journalism. I've spent a couple of school holidays volunteering in schools and hospitals in developing countries and it's a dream of mine to one day raise more awareness for the conditions that children in these countries live in, and also to educate others on how to help them.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

1. Do you think you are going to see Endgame given that you didnít like the start of Infinity war and the fact that endgame is going to be over THREE HOURS!

2. I have similar ambitions to become an AV tech and are studying Live Production at RMIT. Itís exciting to see someone else that has a similar interest and ambition.

Besides the OHS elements I have been liking it a lot.
The aspect I have enjoyed the most has been the lighting, not so much the creative side but more how all of the patching works and configuring the fixtures. The vision elements I have also really been liking. The sound classes I have not been enjoying but I feel like itís more the teacher then anything.

I am doing the Cert IV at RMIT.

I have not really had any experience mainly because it was only last year that I came across this ambition. But I am hunting for local opportunities to volunteer like you have.

I'm the same as you I've found the lighting side of everything so interesting like how everything works and its so satisfying when you mess something up and the fix it

Like that time when I was running board for a theatre show and a half hour before doors opened the stage just went dark and the only lights working were the movers and LED's and so all our conventionals were not working and after 20 min of frantic panicking and diagnosing all of a sudden I did something and the lights came back up on stage and it was like relief and its so satisfying...or when you're working a festival and you're doing lighting or sound and its just a great feeling to be able to deliver a great night to thousands of people.

Where do you live?? Like general area? Might be able to give you some pointers if you're looking for some experience working gigs :))

Definitely, that sounds exhilarating. I ran the vision for my school presentation nights (they hired professional sound and light guys who set up the vision system) and the audio was not running from my laptop right when the night started, (even though we tested it 5 times earlier in the day), all these professional guys were stressing and I was just calmly looking for a solution and I had one in what felt like forever but was probably more like a minute. When I figured out how to fix it it was such a great feeling.

I live in the far north/north eastern area, towards the end of the train metro train lines.

I'm in my third year of teaching high school English. I worked as a lawyer previously but legal practice wasn't for me. I have my first group of ATAR English classes this year so I am scoping this forum out as a potential treasure trove of handy resources and helpful discussion. Also, a completely valid form of procrastination from my marking load.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Honestly, I've never passionately hated a film. Definitely watched my fair share of disappointing ones... But then even those are entertaining in a weird way and that's the whole point of movies, right?

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Fireman axe. That's easy.

Skipping the optional questions because my students' unmarked papers are staring at me and making me feel bad.

Welcome! Really cool to have another teacher in the community - We've got a few former/current mods who are either in the middle of or finished teaching programs, maybe we should set up a teachers section?

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)

I'm currently in Year 10! The subjects I'm doing are English, Maths, Literature, Psychology, Photography, and HHD Units 1 and 2.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

this took quite a while of thinking..... my response has to be 2017's The Mummy, starring good ol' Tom Cruise. my dad was pretty hype for it, and all I'd hear all day was how much he wanted to see it. once we finally got around to watching it, we discovered that it was pretty boring and kinda shitty. to quote one review I saw online, it "should've been kept under wraps."

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

you know how many bloody times I've thought of this? too many to count. if we're talking major scale, i'm rolling out in a big spiked tank. but on the more hands-on, i'd pick either a flamethrower (very until dawn-esque) ooorrrrrrr if i'm up to it, a big machete for some melee action.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

I feel like saving the world, and being a great, wonderful person who goes down in the history books is unrealistic, at least, for most people. my hopes as a person would be to try my hardest to be kinder, more thankful, and make sure that my circle is full of good-hearted supportive people. I definitely want to achieve a lot in my life, academically, occupationally, and personally. I want to go to UniMelb and study psychology and then law, I want to work as a lawyer, maybe prosecutor, (i don't really know yet tbh), and I want to meet many diverse people, to cherish and make beautiful memories with. kind of speaking it into existence here lmao.

so, this is my, sort of, orientation to atar notes, huh? lets make these next three years, and the six or so years after that, the best years to come!

Hi, this is my first post on the forums after browsing through it mindlessly for, like, so long! I finally found the courage to post so:

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in Year 10 and I'm not really doing any VCE subjects at the moment but I'll list the ones I want to do for now:
Methods, Specialist, English Language, Chemistry, Accounting, and Psychology

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I honestly don't really have a movie I hate but I avoid watching the Percy Jackson movies if I can (they butchered the book series which I used to lovee)

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
ooooh I've always wanted an excuse to learn how to use different swords and daggers so I would probably just end up using medieval weapons like swords and daggers (...and get killed straight away)

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be happy and make other people happy, and I want to be proud of my decisions in the future. In terms of career I want to be an Actuary and graduate from Melbourne Uni.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I have a great family and academic life but my social life was really bad last year and it's healing slowly. Darks times man dark times...
I do have really good friends though but just not many (i really don't mind hehe)

It's cool to finally pluck up the courage and post something on the forums because I've been putting this off for AGES! i definitely want to help a lot of people later in my schooling and I look forward to getting to know all of you guys!

Yay for the courage to post here, I sure am glad to see you post, I look forward to seeing your future posts! ;D

I agree with the butchering of the Percy Jackson series. Movie makers tend to do that a lot with any adaptions they make, but this one's high on my makes-me-mad list haha!

I aspire to be happy and make others happy too, it makes me really happy to see people happy around me too haha! Being an actuary sounds really cool, what inspires you to wish to pursue that? :)

aaah thank you I feel really welcomed  ;D
I want to be an actuary because it's quite mathematical and I have a huge passion in maths. I also love humanities subjects like economics, and accounting seems pretty fun so actuarial studies seems like a combination of all of those  :)

Hi everyone! Gosh posting on a forum is a bizarre occurrence for a self-proclaimed technophobe... But here goes nothing!

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in year 13 this year (lol) because I graduated from year 12 last year! I'm currently taking a gap year, because I am terrified of uni and of losing my childhood (#peterpan). I completed Latin, Psychology, Revs, English Language, Lit, Philosophy and Outdoor Ed across my VCE :))

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Funnily enough, amongst my friends I'm actually known for not hating films, so this is a tricky question... maybe anything with Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler in it? The only exception to this is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and the Truman Show, but otherwise ew what is Dumb and Dumber??

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A single can of Heinz Baked Beans, because then I can throw it at zombies' heads, but also retain the beans inside for sustenance (ingenious I know)

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
As a person, I want to be happy, and also proud of myself and my achievements. In an ideal world, I want to receive both a Nobel Peace Prize and an Oscar for Best Actress, however more realistically, I would love to find myself in a job that I look forward to, and that I find interesting and exciting every day!

Welcome to the forums!
That's quite a number of subjects you completed there. Which ones did you find the most enjoyable?
And fair enough about being scared of Uni - I'm sure there are plenty of Uni students floating around here that would be happy to console any particular worries you have (in the uni discussion threads)
What kind to things do you plan to do/want to do on your gap year?

Title: Re: Make Your First Post!
Post by: milanander on May 09, 2019, 10:05:56 pm
So uhhhh I had an account YEARS ago but forgot my login, so here I am again.

Year level and subjects
Year level: 11
Subjects: Systems Engineering and Maths Methods (3+4), and English, Specialist, Physics, Viscom, Studio Arts, Psych (1+2). I'm planning on dropping psych at the end of term tho for another subject - but still undecided.

Movie that I passionately hate
I donít watch that many movies tbh. First to come to mind is Orphan.
Justification: the parents (especially the dad) in that film are infuriatingly oblivious.

Weapon of choice in a zombie apocalypse
Has anyone seen the news of this girl who designed a gun that turns tears into bullets? If equipped with such weapon, Iíd be invincible as Iíll never run out of ammo. (Perks of being in VCE)

Who/what do I want to become/achieve
My goal is to study engineering. As of right now, I'm still weighing the pros and cons of doing undergrad at monash/rmit or postgrad at melbourne.
In the long run, I've got no idea at the moment... (( ~ awkward ~ )) ;D

Summarise your life in one paragraph
First few years were a bit too rushed which wasn't a good start. Now I'm starting with a clean slate, and am more than ready to take things at a more leisurely pace.
Slow and steady wins the race. ;D

Post by: thaifriedrice on May 10, 2019, 10:26:17 am
1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm a year 12 student doing Legal Studies, PDHPE, Biology, Standard Mathematics & Advanced English :^0

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I'm not going to question why this question was made mandatory but ok. I don't watch a lot of movies apart from horror but if I had to pick a movie I hate with a passion, it would be Captain Marvel. Idk y 100% but her personality annoyed me so much. Also the movie ruined Nick Fury for me like why?

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I've thought about this question a lot in my free time and its a tie between a hand gun or a katana.
A hand gun would be my ideal weapon because I prefer to be on a range attack and it would let me avoid close range encounters. It's also pretty easy to hide and store on your body. The trouble is that they would be hard to find and I would have to restock on bullets. On the other hand, a katana would be so badass but I feel like I would accidentally cut my arm off or some shit. Also the blood would cause rust and it would eventually become blunt.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Damn this really b making me think deep. Ummm, I want to be the best version of myself as possible. I want to work hard, become qualified, get a good job and start a family someday. I also want to grow more as a person and find new things about me.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Tbh my life is pretty boring, being asian means that I have no social life because my parents say no to everything. I feel like I've improved grade wise from when I first started High-school. My love life is a mess but that normal for me. I think I've spent a lot of my free time watching Netflix, drawing and reading, not that interesting.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I am in year 11 this year and subjects are English, General Mathematics, Italian, Chemistry, Biology, Health and Human Development and Religious Education (compulsory at my school

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
I hate all horror movies. I don't understand how people could get a thrill out of watching them.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
Probably a gun of some sort as I can shoot.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
I want to be someone who you can come to for advice, someone who helps everyone no matter what. I am aspiring to be a pediatrician so I can help children. Incorporating my love of helping, medicine and children. 

5. If you had to summarize your life in a paragraph, what would you say?
Unfortunately, I do not have a very good life. I battle mental health issues which can affect all aspects of my life. I have also moved a lot of times and this has affected me each and every time. Once I get attached to people, I really get attached which can be a downfall. I give people too many chances, even if I know they don't deserve them. I pride myself on my school work though and always put lots of effort into them. I put lots of pressure on myself because I aspire to be my best always.

Currently undergoing Year 12; studying English, Math Methods, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, 35 in Psych from last year.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
It's gotta be Eragon; after reading what was a great book, the movie in comparison was dismal, and frankly it was worthy of contempt.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Lightsaber, duh. Otherwise a machete would be pretty neat.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I would like to strive for medicine, but I'll land where I do. Maybe go travelling later on.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

Hi, i'm currently in year 11 right now and i'm studying Advanced math, Advanced English, chemistry, physics, Ancient History, Design and Tech and 1 unit Studies of Religion.  :o
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Most passionately hate? Well, I have yet to see a movie that I dislike. I don't really watch movies, I'm more of a TV show/series person.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I don't know, i guess a sword or something sharp.  ???
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I think i just want to be as good as a person could be. I know it sounds cringe but I really just want to do good to others. i'd say i want achieve a decent mark in the HSC and just get through high school.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Pretty boring, I haven't actually achieved anything so far but I would say that my life is alright.  :-\

It's certainly alright! :)

Your subjects seem like a good selection (I'm a science person), was SoR required by your school?

 Wanting to be a good person isn't cringe at all (to me, at least). I also want to be a good person, which for me means following my values (my core ones are empathy & determination), but I know lots of people have 'being a good person' manifest in different ways (eg specific to career, particular causes... ). Do you have any guidance for yourself on how to be a good person or is it more focused on just acting how you think is right in any given moment?
(Feel free not to answer if too personal btw)


Completely disagree about you not having achieved anything so far,  you've made it to this point and you'll have had a bunch of experiences where you don't know (yet) how unique they are - even just helping someone prep for their physics test is something :) - but I guess it's your call to make. 


Big welcome to the forums; it's great to have you here :)

Hi guys I'm new here. Not really sure if I'm using this right but I'm currently in Year 12 and taking Society and Culture as a subject. This of course means doing a Personal Interest Project (PIP), so if you are reading this could you please take 5 min to do my survey for my PIP. I need a variety of respondents. Unfinished responses are still appreciated if the survey seems too long. Thank you!

Hey there,

Welcome to the forums! I just completed your questionnaire.

Just letting you know that there is a thread in the Society and Culture board where you can post your questionnaire. Another resource I'd recommend is the Society and Culture Resources Thread where you can get an overview on what kind of resources we offer here.

Hope you find the forums useful and good luck with your PIP :)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Year 11 studying English, Maths Methods, Biology, Psychology, OES, and History.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Every Fast and Furious movie after number 5 because 3 was too many.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
My teeth, I can't run so I'm basically already a zombie and zombies use their teeth.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be somebody else. And I say this not in the way that I hate myself but dislike some personal behaviours. I have a wonderful habit of procrastination and distraction but not nearly enough self control to break these habits.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I've spent most of my life not giving a damn about my schooling or results, and didn't hand in probably 50% of my assignments. I'm probably seen as a math head and have a sometimes incredible memory but if I had to say who I am in one sentence. I generally live to care about and for others, and rarely put myself first. I won't study for myself but if someone needs help with their study, guess who's there.

I would love to study particularly in Singapore or potentially Japan! Honestly, I just want to escape Melbourne's unpredictable weather ;D.
I mainly do model photography and touch-ups, sometimes nature/urban photography but that's quite rare these days :)

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
currently stuck in limbo between high school and uni, but also not technically a gap year.
did year 12 last year but got screwed over hard by english language bc for almost all uni courses you need a 25 raw and i got below 20 rip.
so i'm doing UMEP chem right now while also working full time, and next year i'll do english and hopefully finally graduate lmao.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
please don't crucify me but i hated inception. maybe my brain just can't keep up with the plot.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
a friend who can't run as fast as me

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
employment
all jokes aside, i want to study classics and archaeology, and hopefully move to italy one day for research. there's lots of dodgy things going on with the field of roman history and archaeology in italy and historical narratives are being distorted to both make it seem more interesting to the general public and to boost patriotism.
also, did you know that anyone who studies classics can visit any historical site in italy for free?

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
i got screwed over due to the compulsory english thingo and now am still stuck in high school while my friends are in uni.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Fifty shades of grey. It is one of the most abusive "love stories" ever. Why do they market that it is ok to sexually assault your partner
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Weapons would be futile, I'd pack necessities and high tail it out of society.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to help people and make a direct influence on their lives

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
As of right now, I am in year 11. The subjects that I have chosen are 3u Maths (planning on choosing 4u maths), Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Catholic Studies (I go to a Catholic school and it is compulsory) and English Advanced

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I am mostly into Marvel movies, and I don't have a passionate hate for any movie (even though there are some pretty bad movies out there)

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
In the event of a zombie apocalypse, my weapon of choice would be a poleaxe. I would choose a poleaxe because I could easily destroy zombies from a long distance and it is very effective for killing multiple zombies. In addition, I could use the weapon as a source to create fire, as the weapon is mainly made of wood which is very combustible.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
In the future, I would like to make an impact on society in a positive way in order to improve humanity. I want to do a medicine degree because I have a passion for learning and I also want to improve healthcare.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
My life so far is mediocre as I am trying hard to achieve my goal. Throughout my schooling so far I have tried to push myself to achieve better and have done volunteer work for non-profit organisations.

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in year 11. I currently do Economics, Business Studies, Maths General 2, 1 unit SOR, Drama and ADV English. Though for Year 12 i will be dropping down to standard english even though I got 83% in my last adv exam and drop economics. So I'll be doing 11 units for my HSC. I'm really nervous.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I hate the emoji movie with a passion. From a filmmaking perspective, this movie tanked on several levels. A lot of the dialogue & jokes were unfunny at best and cringeworthy at worst (ďYouíre so soft, poop!Ē), and not to mention the plot was highly generic as well as a huge ripoff of way better animated films from Pixar and Disney. At the same time, do not forget the in-your-face, soulless product placement of smartphone apps, where the major plot point in the film is literally to get to Candy Crush, Spotify and eventually Dropbox, in which the latter, according to one of the filmís dialogue is ďfree and protected from illegal malwareĒ. (Does that sound like blatant advertising to you?) Certainly, just for those reasons alone, my hate for this film is highly justified, and this is for sure one of the worst animated movies I have seen in a really long time
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A tactical semi-auto .22 LR rifle.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
Well, I want to be someone who is loved by everyone, someone who everyone thought would ver succeed but does incredibly well. At the end of life I want to achieve satisfaction that i have given back towards the community and I can do this by getting my dream job of CFO. By managing a companies finance, I play apart in providing the service towards the company. By managing finances I can ensure that nothing will ever happen to our company and that it is in a good financial state at all times to ensure the company is able to provide the service
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I would say that my life is very good and I'm a lucky kid. To have a family this kind to me and to be loved everyday and fed everyday is truly a surreal gift.

Hello my lovely friends! My name is Eva!  ;D ;D

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? - I'm currently in year 10 (year 11 next term - my school is rather odd). I am doing the HSC Diploma and will be studying English Advanced & Extension I, Mathematics Advanced, Biology, PDHPE, SOR II and Economics. I would love to do French but unfortunately ce n'est pas possible!  :'(
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. - I couldn't tell you. Probably a horror movie?
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?. - These iron fists baby!  8)
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? - I want to be happy! SO so happy! (I know, how unbelievably corny!). I want to have the ability and flexibility to choose a career I am passionate about and thoroughly enjoy (hence my broader range of subjects). My ultimate aim in life is to have an enjoyable career with a stable income and a happy family! Preferably one with a few doggos!
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? - I am one big ball of energy. This chica does not know of volume control (though, she is working on it!). I love my friends, I love my family, I love ATAR Notes (it is proving to be bloody useful). My friends would describe me as happy, loyal, daring, funny and passionate... sometimes a little too passionate!  ;)

What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
I hate Annabelle. This is just a horrific movie, it gives me nightmares and I just couldn't sleep after watching the movie.
In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
In the event of a zombie apocalypse, I would use a crossbow. This would mean that I could aim accurately at the zombies.
Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?

If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say?
For my entire life, I have always had the most supportive parents. They support everything I do and always want the best for me and without them, I would be so lost. I am very grateful that they gave life to me and I want an opportunity to give back to them.

I'm currently in year 11 and my subjects are Ancient History, Society&culture, english standard, math standard, legal studies, cafs & studies of religion I !

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I don't actually watch that many movies because I honestly just don't have time to watch an hour long movie which therefore I don't really passionately hate a movie lol

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Well i'm from a Polynesian background and I am fascinated with history of warriors especially my ancestors stories but probably a Polynesian war clubs (a weapon & yes I rather prefer old school weapons than guns lmfao)

I want to be the person I dreamed of as a kid who is able to be the best version of themselves and achieve things for doing what I love. I also want to be able to reach goals in my life so I am able to give back to my parents as they sacrificed by crossing oceans so my siblings and I are able to have every opportunity that my parents didn't.

I'm currently in year 11, and I'm doing English Advanced + Extension, Mathematics Advanced, Ancient History, Legal Studies, German Continuers, and Software Design & Development. Next year, however, I'm planning on doing English Advanced, Mathematics Advanced, Ancient History, Legal Studies, German Continuers + Extension, and History Extension.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

I might cop a little bit of backlash for this, but I really wasn't a huge fan of Frozen. I don't know, the entire plot just didn't really fit with me and I couldn't understand the stupid decisions that the characters made. Just my opinion though...

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

Nothing's better than a trusty old cricket bat!

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

I'm really passionate about the law and our legal system here in Australia, so I'd love to study law. I'm also really interested in politics and would love to eventually get involved in the Australian political sphere. Of course, my number one priority is just to be content with where I currently am in life, and where I'm going.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

Yikes. Well, I really love public speaking, and that has become a massive part of my life over the past year, getting involved in Model United Nations, Mock Trial, and whatnot. I'm really passionate about being able to help people get out of really sticky situations, and genuinely just love being able to learn in a free society. Looking forward to seeing where things go!

I'm currently in year 11 and I am at the moment studying Ancient History, Drama, English Advanced, Maths Advanced, Modern History, and Studies of Religion II. Next year I'm hoping to drop maths and pick up history extension.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I passionately hate Finding Nemo. I know so many people love the movie and the plot, but whenever it was wet weather in my primary school we were always forced to watch it. I get bored of things and start to hate them if it gets repetitive and that was the case with this movie.

 3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
To be different my weapon of choice would be my dance shoes cause they are made of fibreglass and hurt like anything if you accidentally kick yourself with them. In some cases, they can even cut you.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I do not know what I want to be when I finish school. I love history. I love design. I love the concept of refurbishing old homes. Although my future is undecided, I wish to become a person who has an impact on those around me. I'm not gonna say I'll be the change in the world because it takes more than one individual, but I want to make a difference to someone. That is what I want to achieve in my lifetime.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
My life has not been like everyone else that I know. I have already lost many family members and friends to our dear friend, death. Although this hasn't knocked me down just yet. I have previously, alongside my dad, held a Guinness world record as well as become accredited as a dance teacher for Irish dance and become an international competitor.  I've won multiple history competitions and have always strived to be the best I can. I come from a family that is way into cricket. You may know one of my relatives, Sir Donald Bradman? Although I am not a fan of cricket I am still quite competitive with my two older brothers who have both completed school. I've had my ups and downs in life and have battled my way through the beginnings of my life and now i am about to take an adventure through the middle of the story. It is an unexpected journey.
