I'm A Loser! Every little thing I do at school has a Beatles reference in it. Now I have no intention of being a paperback writer but whenever I'm writing an English essay I can't help but write something referring to The Beatles. Yesterday, I was given back my corrected "mock exam" in English and I just don't understand how I managed to get 30+ Beatles references into a 4 page essay. I'm Down because my stingy marker gave me 49/70 marks on it when my teacher said I should have gotten 55+. It's All Too Much, really! I've Got A Feeling I really need to let it be with those Beatles references. There's a place and a time for Beatles references and that's on this website not in my school exams!!! When I get home from that bloody English exam in 5 weeks time I'll be Glad All Over. You Won't See Me for 2 weeks though as I'll be in Germany over indulging in Beatles merchandise and quoting them to my heart's content but It's Only Love and an obsession with The Beatles

The End

^^^Okay that was crappy and a bit sad but I did manage to get a Pattie, Desmond and Molly Jones, a boy with his hair like a turban and a cheeky grin who's Dad is a bus driver (who could that be????), Jules, John, Maxwell, Rita, Pete and Paul McCartney in my essay. The Sgt. Pepper and Revolver albums, She's Leaving Home, Good Day Sunshine, Sexy Sadie and a bunch of other little tid-bits including a teenage John Lennon appearing for a couple of seconds *facepalm* God I need help! What if I get somebody who hates The Beatles or a young person who won't get the references paul-mccartneypaul-mccartney Damn you Beatles, this never happened when I was listening to Michael Jackson 24/7!!!!

But in other news regarding using Beatles references in my school work, the person who marked my mock Irish exam was a Beatles fan!! (yay) We had to write a letter about going on a school trip, seeing sites and something bad happened. So I wrote how I went to Liverpool (Learpholl) went to The Cavern Club (An Chluib Cuais) and to The Beatles Story museum (Scéal Na Beatles) and losing my purse on Mathew Street :( They had massive ticks next to my references to The Beatles (good on them ) and they gave me 27/30 (wayyyyy :D ) Same with my geography mock I mentioned The Concert for Bangladesh (oh I need to get a life!)

So apart from that very long post does anybody else unknowingly or knowingly say/write Beatles references at school/home/work and if so have you ever been told to stop/get in trouble with them a-hard-days-night-john-7.  I also do references in French and German and I'm pretty sure the people who make the maths exams are fans too, there was a mention of how far would the cylinder travel if it did "nine revolutions" :D

Just the teachers, my history teacher took my Beatles book off me in class. I wasn't even looking at it!! I got it back at the end of class though :D I was reading to my friend the article which John wrote for the Mersey Beat magazine about the origin of The Beatles name when I heard scoffing from the class b*tch behind my back that I was reading something about "an old band and everybody who is in it is dead" I told her to f**k off and mind her own f**king business or I'll cripple her" Oh God I sound awful but she's been out to get me for 3 years and I always hear her talking crap about me behind my back, what I wear, what I do but in all honesty I wouldn't hurt a fly, I just want her to shut up and mind her own business and get on with her life and stop trying to bring other people down with her!

God I sound awful but she's been out to get me for 3 years and I always hear her talking crap about me behind my back, what I wear, what I do but in all honesty I wouldn't hurt a fly, I just want her to shut up and mind her own business and get on with her life and stop trying to bring other people down with her!

At least you got it back, but I don't they should have took it from you since you weren't reading it. I mean I could understand if it was a cell phone laying there, cause a lot of classes I have been have strict phone rules.  I don't blame you about that girl either.a-hard-days-night-george-10

I know people like that as well. My sister does it but she does it in a playful way (and she has the decency to not remind me that two of them are no longer here). heart

I did an English exam last year and at the end they asked us to write a page on somebody famous. Without even pausing to think about it I wrote ''John Lennon. Man, musician, philosopher, genius'', and on I went (for two pages, rather than one).

 

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
