 Maybe its because they realise that for some students, its the only exercise they get!

 You have a point. That's basically my only workout right now.

We have lifts. People wait ten minutes for the lift to come and find that I've beat them to the classroom and stolen the best seats. We also have automatic doors. These are turned off and locked when the wind is bad (turns the college entrance into a bit of a deathtrap) and my media group spent a good hour watching people walk past the regular doors to the automatic doors, only to find that they didn't open. Most of them pushed said automatic door, found it was locked, gave up and went back to the normal door, to be greeted by our applause and laughter.

I'm wondering if there is such a word as "spirographer"? In the way that a photographer takes photographs, surely a spirographer is a person who makes spirographs?

Also...if a cartographer is a person who draws maps, why are maps not called cartographs?

Where do the Friends' friends come from when they have parties? You rarely see them hanging out with anyone else, but whenever they have a party the room is full?!

Why did women once decided to wear trousers as well as men, but men not to wear skirts? I mean a patriarchy also restricts men because they have to fulfill a certain ideal. Also skirts are that much more comfortable, so why the hell did women want to wear trousers? xD

Why had Windows programmer no time to correct certain mistakes but could program an error report for those errors that are "unexpected"? Eh?

Who was responsible for the extremely witty sign in the window of a rufty tufty outdoor sports emporium that is currently having a sale......"Now is the discount of our winter tent" If I wore a hat, I would be taking it off in respect.

How can adults say how safe it was to roam around as children 'back in their day' when that exact period was when the most prolific serial killers were at large? I think it was just as dangerous back then; we were just more naive.

^ Apparently, the number of child murders per year hasn't changed since the fifties and in most cases, the murderers were the children's relatives or family friends. I guess people are just paranoid.

I was thinking earlier about when Christians say that people will be condemned to Hell if they don't believe in God. Well, if I don't believe in something then it isn't really going to threaten me...kind of like if I turned round and said "I'm going to get my fire breathing dragon to come and put you in his cave for the rest of your life". You don't believe in my dragon so me threatening you with him isn't going to make you change anything...

Why give people free-will to choose whether or not to believe in you then punish those who do just that? You're omnipotent, you already know whether or not an individual will believe in you so where's the fun in already knowing that you're going to punish these people? Blind faith (believing without questioning the thing you believe in) just seems to be a waste of free will. I believe in the concept of dragons. I know that it's extremely unlikely that they exist on this earth because...we'd have seen them by now but perhaps on a seperate plane of conciousness or another planet...who knows! By the same token I believe in the concept of a god/gods but I don't think they would be as "involved" as the Christian God seems to be.

^ I really love this post.

I've been wondering about how complicated humans make life. Almost everything we do is abstract, constructed, comprised of imaginary concepts and laws we've created. Sometimes when I think about things like, for example, baknks, I take a moment to marvel at the depth of thought we've put into our lives.

I was sat in my maths with my friend Soul and after 5 minutes of staring out of the window he said "Don't you love how birds walk?" He spent the rest of the lesson pretending to be a bird.

While practising bound buttonholes at work today, I made one that looked near enough perfect. My first thought was that it was a huge achievement and that I would be a little sad when it came to clearing my table of the mound of buttonholes because that was the first good one I'd made.

This led me onto thinking, what would the world be like if we rewarded ourselves as frequently as we would reward a child who was achieving a lot of things, and did so in the same way?

I have a feeling that we'd get a lot of fun out of it! For example:

-A good grade at school might mean a day at the park, playing on the swings and feeding the ducks.
-Doing something nice for someone who isn't feeling great might mean that you get to eat a big ice cream at the beach.
-If you drew a really good picture for someone else, maybe they would blue tack it to their wall? (I actually have six paintings in my house that others have painted for me, all up on the walls. The youngest artist was six at the time, and the oldest is 29. I love these canvases - they're each really beautiful in completely different ways.)

...and so on.

With all of this in mind, I think I might get a magnet, and put this little piece of denim with the bound buttonhole on the door of my fridge.

xxx Eve

Oh Eve, every single time you write about buttonholes I think you're talking about buttholes. Ahem.

Next time I go on an aeroplane, I am going to document the shit out of the journey. I LOVE looking at photos taken on aeroplanes. It's basically all I've done for days on end now...Also, this pen tastes of strawberries. WHY?!

On a more theoretical note:

I think about child development a lot due to my PGCE. It's pretty interesting really. Studies show that putting children in groups that are based upon their ability can actually negatively impact their development in school (ie, putting kids in ability-based sets doesn't make them better at english, or maths, or any other subject you've put them in sets for) Now, I was wondering what you thought of that, guyssss, because I have memories of being in ability based sets, as well as mixed-ability groups. I MUCH preferred being in ability-based sets because I was one of those kids who got very frustrated with those who weren't as 'good' as me... Any thoughts on this, chumrades?

^ I found that too. It sounds utterly horrible, but I hated working with slow people, either because they made me do all the work or because they just didn't get it. But I never wanted to help them because it made me feel like I was showing off or being a swot. Argh, you just can't win.

^I've also always preferred being in ability based classes, due to behaviour in them (in my experience) being a lot better. I can see that if everyone wanted to learn, and was focused then mixed ability might be quite a good thing, but I don't think that it'd work in reality.

I agree. I think that basically it benefits you if you are bright and eager, but it can be detrimental if you are struggling or disinterested.

Another interesting study showed that giving a grade but no target/feedback meant that children's performance was WORSE on their next piece of work. Giving a grade and a target/feedback meant there was NO CHANGE, and giving simply written targets and feedback meant that the child's work IMPROVED!
What say you?

I'd rather have a grade and feedback, because it makes me feel that if I don't get the grade I want I have something to strive towards. Without a grade, I feel like I'm flapping about a bit without any structure; it makes me a tad nervous.
