My day

Well today was a fairly average sort of day, hot, boring, and good to get home.
The day started off at 7.30 in the morning when my alarm woke me up and I started to get ready for school. I was completly knackered as on friday i'd been practicing Cricket in the nets for a few hours and played sports all day Saturday. Luckily I got a ride down the hill to school, but felt too tired to work, due to the heat and my exhaustion. I did manage to do a lot of Accounting and English work, though as I was walking to English a teacher confiscated my shoes for the day. -.-
Anyway after another boring period of Maths I had my most feared period - Japanese. Most of you won't know my struggle with passing Japanese last year, as it was due to having a teacher who disliked me immensely and failed me on two internal tests that I should have passed. This year I have a much better teacher, but last year was difficult to learn with the teacher I had, so I struggle with Japanese now. The period, surprisingly was ok as I managed to complete the majority of my homework. The one good part about learning Japanese this year is that I get to go to Japan in september. I'm really looking forward to it, as i've never been there and Japanese culture interests me.

That's about all I have to say about my day, as since i've been home i've been too tired to do anything of interest.

A little bit about myself.

Today was so hot! It must have been like 30 degrees. Far too hot for school anyhow. Yes this is the first time i've created a blog, and my first post at that. For those of you who don't know who I am, my name is Mark. I live in Christchurch, which is located in about the eastern middle side of the south island, New Zealand. I'm in the sixth form at school, which is year 12 (Second year of NCEA). My interests include; Computers, Sports (cricket, soccer, rugby, tennis) and Mongooses :). My plans in life are to become a Lawyer/Game designer or study animals.

I'm also a big fan of rock music. Such bands include; Lifehouse, Switchfoot, Linkin Park, Good Charlotte, 3 Doors Down, Day Of Fire, Creed and various other Christian and non Christian artists.
If you Havn't heard of the two greatest bands in the world (Switchfoot and Lifehouse), I suggest you buy/borrow some of their CD's. They are truely awesome and their songs are very meaningful. I believe we can all, to an extent, relate to a lot of the lyrics in their songs.

When i start to get the hang of this Blog thing, i'll try to post up the lyrics to their best songs :)

Anyhow i'd better get back to doing some homework, as i have a fair bit of it :(
