It’s true, I let it die. For anyone who is interested I’ve got a new blog on Tumblr that doesn’t deal with much serious shit, it’s mostly about music.

Grades in the USA go from F to A plus, this is why I have a problem. In the UK grades before GCSE’s go from 1c to 8A, I think this is better than in the USA because it gives you the opportunity to equate your current grades with what grade you would get at the tests each country provides. If you get an A in the USA in year 8 that’s just for year 8, it has no meaning when compared to marks in other years. Whereas one can easily compare ones grades in different years in the UK. Another problem I have is the SAT in the USA, it is mostly multiple choice which doesn’t allow any creativity on the students part. You just have to memorise facts in most cases (excluding maths), this could lead to problems in university when they are required to think freely. However, this is also the system for most tests in the US so it’s what the children are used to. In short, change the grading system in the USA now.
I’m sorry I haven’t been able to post recently, I will resume soon…maybe.
Just posting another one of my favourite albums.
A nice album for when you’re feeling a bit down, also perfect for relaxing on nice summer days. It’s quite clear that The Kinks made a great album that was meant to last (or not, depending on how much you play it).
A beautiful moment captured in an isolated mountain range, you very rarely get photos like this.
