Well, my school/University experience is as follows -
Age 3-6 - Habara School, Bahrain. All I remember is being handed orange juice and reading Roger Red Hat books. So it must have been cool!
Age 7-9 - Linden Park Primary School, Adelaide, Australia. Great facilities, good teachers (apart from 1 racist bitch who used to beat up the Lebanese kid in our class and told everyone he had Aids). But I loved the meat pie deliveries at lunch.
Age 9-12 - St Peter's COE school, Poole, Dorset, England. I loved this school - set in ancient buildings (think Harry Potter) but great sense of community and top notch teachers. It merged with another school to become 'Baden Powell & St Peters' - unfortunately the other school had loads of thickos in it so I was kind of held back. Time to leave
Age 12-13 - Winchester Boys Public School (public school in England means private school elsewhere - that's what I hate about the UK, the illogical use of the language). Very posh and rugger-buggery, but I didn't like boarding.
Age 13-13 - Canford Public School - Another posh private school - so posh that the Egyptian frieze above the darts board was sold to the Museum of London for £18million. Unfortunately, I didn't like horse riding, nor did I have any inclination to make friends with anyone called 'Rupert' or go out with any girls called 'Verity'. I left.....
Age 13-18 - Poole Grammar School - Fantastic selective school - it took the top 8% of boys in the area so no dumb-asses to hold us back, great facilities, top-notch teachers and a great bunch of friends. I miss that school.
Age 18-22 - King's College, University of London - Top notch University (I turned down an unconditional offer at Cambridge University to go there) with unbelieveably talented lecturers. However, being located on the Strand in Central London meant no campus. However, the College owned loads of property in exclusive areas so I lived off High St Kensington for £35 a week, with satellite TV
and broadband in my room. Nice.
Age 20-21 - La Sorbonne, Universite de Paris - Part of my King's degree was spent in Paris. The Sorbonne had a good reputation but in reality was no match for King's - nobody there knew the meaning of 'hard work' - during my 9 months in Paris I went out once, the rest of the time I studied to ensure a 1st Class honours degree (and subsequently a fat bastard monthly pay cheque in the City). People mocked me at the time for my devotion, but look who's laughing now frat boys!
Age 22-23 - Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand - Another great University, one of the best in Asia with terrific facilities and top rate teachers. I studied Thai for a year there - I would highly recommend that place.
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?
