The Clash, “Listen”
“The first gig we ever played was at what we used to call the Mucky Duck (the Black Swan) in Sheffield. We had a song called ‘Listen’ which had a bass line that went up in scale and then down a note to start, and Paul was so nervous that he just kept going up the scale and we all fell over laughing ‘cos we didn’t know when to come in.”
— Joe Strummer
in other news apparently i’m the only person in my class to get an A on our second term curriculum maths exam but i forgot to write my name on my paper
Letting everyone down would be my greatest unhappiness
i really don’t know. here the whole high school thing is a bit different - every school specialises in something (e.g. language school, humanities school, economics school, maths school and so on) and we don’t get to choose subjects/courses in the beginning of the year; instead we choose a school in the end of year 7 and based on the school you’ve chosen you get this set of subjects with usually 2 which you kinda ~major in. i got into a maths & natural sciences school and i’m majoring in maths and compsci but i also have shitload of physics, chemistry and biology classes. continuing to study something maths or at least science related in college/uni would be the logical thing to do but i just don’t know. sometimes i wish i could become an archaeologist or a psychiatrist or a cook or something completely unrelated but then all those years in high school would be pretty much wasted??? but gah man i really don’t know and atm i really don’t care either.
