so yesterday someone invited me to some pre-screening of a new movie and i showed up with a bunch of peeps that he'd also invited and it turned out he hadn't got us tickets nor saved seats for us

so he texted me 'we'll be out for drinks in no time it's a short'

and i said 'YOU'LL be a short when i get my hands on you'

genius

I got invited to that, I think.

Why would you expect him to get tickets in advance, don't you usually just rock up and get them

I met up with this guy from school who I used to compete against in local competitions and he made me feel bad for not playing any more and so I started practising again.

if one of your friends can get tickets to a pre-screening then it probably sucks so don't go problem solved

Well he was just politely asking.

I think most people from my school have mediocre jobs right now.

Except one, who's become a fairly famous model.

my primary schools were pretty shit i guess

i was so glad i didn't go to prep

i hated the fact that my school wasn't co-ed until i realised i could just socialise outside of school

You were privately educated though weren't you?

Mine was state, it just had a higher proportion of lower-middle middle class people in it. The proper toffs from private schools flooded in at sixth form because it was better for their UCAS application or something.

Nah I meant Niall.

My dad turned down a scholarship at a toff school in Oxford as well, I guess it was knowing that you wouldn't fit into the whole thing?

I would have been kicked out of private school within a term.

i dunno, being privately educated tends to turn you into a supremely uncool being

daily fights and drug busts give you that edge

we had those as well, only the drugs were pure and the fights were practically relaxing

although one of my friends got his ballsack ruptured after a classmate threw a big frozen dairy milk at it like a throwing star, that was pretty spectacular

So many people smoked pot at my school that teachers didn't even care, we barely even bothered to try and hide it.

I once got pulled up by the head of year about it for some reason even though there had been dozens of us. I was stoned and paranoid as fuck but I managed to not fess up somehow.
