Sometimes Geography Makes Me Realise I’m Awfully Bad At Being A Nerd

Boy 1: It’s hard to go past the National Geographic magazine, really. 
Teacher: Oh yes, it is rather brilliant
Girl 1: The Australian edition is definitely one of the best. I have a rather large collection and adore going over them from time to time.
Girl 2: I must disagree, I prefer the Economist
Boy 2: No, no, no! That’s gone so downhill in recent years!
Boy 1: Not as much as the Times!
All: *giggle*
Boy 3: Sir, you do read *insert name of bizarre magazine here*, don’t you?
Teacher: Of course. The profiles they cover each month are definite highlights of my literary intake!
Me:

I was going to analyze the inferiority I feel from being in this class, but I couldn’t write it in a way which didn’t make my classmates seem like bitches (they’re so not. They’re definitely some of my favourites at my school), or me sound like a whiny superior brat. Therefore, I decided just to leave it at this conversation and let you make of it what you will.

  1. I wish I was in geo, sounds like fun times! One of the coolest assembled classes ever I reckon. United by a love of social science antics and a hate of the line system. And I actually read it with the people's names without thinking.I should start reading the Economist, due to doing economics and all….Oh and remind me to tell you a social science faculty story when I next see/chat to you!
