miccaeli miccaevelli / 21 / the left hand of satan himself
This time, I didn't fight. I let go of my fear, my guilt, my shame. There was darkness inside me. He had put it there, and I would no longer deny it. The volcra, the nichevo'ya, they were my monsters, all of them. And he was my monster too.
do americans/anyone besides australia have athletics and swimming carnivals?
this one day where your whole school hauls ass to a pool/track field and races to compete for zone
but only like a handful of people do it and everyone else just hangs around in the grandstand eating junk food from the canteen
in fact, did y’all have sports houses?
like, the whole school would be split up alphabetically into four “houses” for sports events, which would compete to win?
i get the feeling that you don’t
i have never seen it on tv and tv is clearly fact, so

fanaticat said:american reply: we totally had “field day” in middle school…but it was for like all county middle schools, but they didn’t bus the whole school only those who competed. it was at my school so we all got out of class to go and bake in the hot sun.
rulu said:FIELD DAY but that was in elementary school. There’re 2 teams and we do tug of war and things. There is free water! In Japan they have Taiiku no Hi which is basically Field Day and idk what they do because I wasn’t paying attention during that lesson
christ-onabike said:lmfao in America we have SOME schools where uniforms are required, and even when there isn’t a required uniform, there’s still strict dress codes (i.e. not what you see on TV)
iheardavoice said:The UK do. In my school, we had 5, we weren’t divided alphabetically, but siblings tended to be in the same House. Wel had House Music/Drama (alternating each year) and various House sports (netball, hockey etc), sports day itself and House Swimming.
