The way Hirst teaches us is awful: it really turns me against The Secret Agent, the book we’re doing. As a result, I’m now prejudiced against Conrad, and whenever I pick the novel up my mind immediately links it with her. I can’t overcome this barrier.
In English we got back our marks for Paper III. I got 54%, a C/D. Other than this, a pretty bland day on the whole. I felt raucous and confident after school.
