Still more:

I rush into my form just in time for the bell to ring. Sliding into my seat, I get out my work from the previous school day and hold it in the air. The teacher slowly walks around, gathering the papers. Iris, Robert, and Paul have forgotten theirs again, so the teacher gives them each a rapping on the knuckles with his yardstick.

But immediately I mentally curse myself - what a selfish girl I am! I don’t wish others any harm. A smile crosses my face, though, when I think of those who enjoy going to that See More▼

I was born in Great Britain. It is very much like America but it is slightly more busier. Education is pushed to the limit and you learn a lot more in year six because of the SAT's. You learn things like: pi, reproduction ect, ect...

It has a very large economy and it is a good place to live. tourism is one reason why we are more fortunate and we often offer money to less fortunate
