    Yeah, you are.

    When I'm feeling isolated, I sometimes think they call it the hub city because it's the middle of nowhere.

    I think it has to do with trains and railways. It was brought up in History class at point in time. Ok, here's a useless fact about Moncton. Moncton was named after a British guy...and was originally spelled Monckton. But the "k" got lost when they were naming the town.

    Gorge Road is where ABU is and it really is in the middle of nowhere! It's annoying. I had more options of where to go in Yarmouth!!!

    My Mummy probably knows where that is. I've seen it before (the school that is)...but I can't remember where it is.

    You hear the rampant criticism of the new math curriculum?

    I failed advanced Grade 12 math on purpose. The whole system was screwy and I wanted to prove a point and spare any other kids from having to go through the crap I did.

    Unofficially, however, I just hated my teachers and went into that "I hate school" phase and just didn't give a crap. I knew I was going to graduate, so it didn't matter much to me ;)

    Mid-semester, and we've only just stopped doing review. :mad: And the new curriculum is supposed to be even less challenging.

    The math curriculum my old high school started for the grade 11's last year was really screwy. I don't think they kept it for this year. I took academic 10, precal 11 and academic 12. I only have to take 2 stats courses for Uni. yay!!! I dislike math!!! :p

    I think that's the curriculum that our grade elvens are stuck with. All my teachers keep telling my class how lucky we are to have the old curriculum.
