for the record, i am more intelligent than most teens-i dont go to booze parties every weekend like some of my mates do and get drunk, infact i hardly ever drink and when i do its like a glass of wine (the best in my opinion-i need to bottle my homebrew too!), i dont drive (much) but when i do im sensible, and i never ever touch drugs! eww!
and yea, i would stay in school, but the orchids are calling! I have been offered work at a 4acre cymbidium greenhouse block for a year, on really good pay too!
And yup, the book is great! im reading it again before i need to take it back to school!
