Economics: Graphs, stats, news quotes, fun
Japanese Continuers: conversation, culture, find a penpal
2017: Information Processes and Technology
2019: 4U Math, 3U English, Japanese, Economics

I just realised I never did this but I guess I have the power of hindsight on my side with my thoughts!

English Advanced: Sometimes bearable, largely a nightmare.
English Extension 1: Most useful subject for university (if you do Arts/Humanities/Social Sciences).
English Extension 2: "Why would you choose poetry?"
Modern History: Heavy content plus essay writing.
Society and Culture: PIP is like giving birth.
Visual Arts: So much fun, would redo.
Music 2: Update this syllabus; it's outdated.

Notable mentions for Music 2:
- Do not do distance education.
- I can't believe I survived.
- University music is significantly better  :)

This is hilarious, do we have one of these things for VCE?
VCE 2018-2020
2019: HHD 3/4 (31->?)
2020: Methods 3/4 (36?->?) | Revolutions (France/Russia) 3/4 (32?->?) | English 3/4 (43?->?) | Texts and Traditions 3/4 (42?->?)
Aiming 92+ ATAR - SS's in italics are my aims... some more unrealistic than others (I'm looking at you, Texts, English!)
Aims for uni/life
-Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Midwifery at Deakin (straight Nursing instead if I don't get in)
-Write/publish books (thanks NaNoWriMo.org!)
For Narnia!
Have counted to 73
