Always Advancing Finally, I was here. I had arrived. I had successfully ploughed my way through the drudgery of Standard Grade and Higher to face my destiny: Advanced Higher! The jewel in the crown, the icing on the cake, the light at the end of the tunnel… No, I chastised myself, I would have to stop thinking in clichés if I was to get anywhere in Advanced Higher English. I had heard rumours that the course was nothing like Higher, which pleased me no end. None of that painstakingly pointless microanalysis of why the writer had chosen to use ‘crimson’ rather than ‘scarlet’. How was I supposed to know? I wasn’t in their head; I wasn’t there at the time and I certainly wasn’t able to read the mind of a man who had been dead for well over one hundred years! Now I was free to take flight, to be creative and to allow my mind to contemplate deeply philosophical ideas about life and the human condition. And all this surrounded by like- minded individuals…bliss!
