It’s not all what I was writing when I was 17. I am afraid my 34-year-old self is having a say.

And I have to because I’ve got something really pretty fucking important to add. Because I was at a teachers conference today and I was speaking to someone who kept saying Y9 and Y10 instead of saying ‘year nine’ and ‘year ten’. Y as in sounds like someone saying the word why. Why (or Y) bother?

Year is not exactly a long word. And everyone says (eg) year nine when they are talking about students/pupils/children. So, not only is this person ignoring that they are doing something that is not saving any time or energy whatsoever, they are ignoring that no-one else follows this nomenclature.

What? OK….
