Take a shower, brush my teeth, floss, and can't forget to clean the ears.
Talk to buddies over omelettes, bacon, scones and chocolate milk. Can't be late or else I'll get a demerit!
Rev. Roffey shares a lesson with us about some of the events he's been through in his life.
Discuss the last chapter of The Closing of the American Mind by Alan Bloom with Mr. Rush. At first I had no interest in reading this book, but after reading the introduction, I can’t put it down.
Go and watch an exciting floor hockey game between faculty & day boys. A 7-7 tie is solved with an unbelievable shootout save by Haider Akbar - the day boys win!
Studied pretty hard last night and I felt like I did well.
The test was on radical expressions, rates of change, and the slope of a tangent.
Grab lunch upstairs (pasta and ceasar salad) in the Dining Hall and then bring it down to the Prefect room for a Prefect meeting.
We practice for the upcoming one-act play. Mr. Scoular has given us a chance to both act and direct our own plays with the same script for every group, but different interpretations of the actual performances from each group.
Mr. Day gives us a verb quiz. Learning new verbs usually isn't too tough - so let's hope I aced it!
The school day ends and I head back to my room to change for basketball practice.
I am usually a bit tired after practice, so I take a shower and then relax with my friends before we go to dinner.
Head over to the Dining Hall with friends. Lots of options as usual so I can always get something I like (choice of curried beef or roast pork tenderloin with egg noodles). Sit with friends at the “Grad tables” which are located on a raised platform reserved specifically for grade 12 students.

Despite having just eaten, we’re all pretty into the game. It’s just for fun and guys passing by just join in.
Study is a huge part of boarding life. It is two hours of the day devoted to studying and nothing else. I spend the first hour in my room going over notes and reading, and then I go to the library with friends from class to work on a group presentation.
Many of the guys who live in Sifton House come down to the kitchen after study to grab a snack. We take out the grills to make some grilled cheese sandwiches, as well as cut up some fruit. Some guys just grab yogurt or cereal. I try and watch my weight, but grilled cheese sandwiches are just too good. Our Housemaster, Mr. Ramon, joins us and asks about our day.
||Watch hockey game with friends
A lot of the guys head to the common room to watch the hockey game on the big screen. We bring up snacks from the kitchen for everyone.
||Get ready for bed
Brush teeth and change.
The Residential Don comes by and we chat a bit about school. Then I hit the bed and never look back. What a day!
