Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Okay, so you might be expecting a post on my school orientation right? Heh... wishful thinking. For now at least =/. I did go to school today, but it wasn't orientation. When I entered the school, the counsellor who I had been assigned to 3 weeks ago, Josephine, told me the details and said I needed to do a small exam and quizzes. Okay, the exam was really too easy, because everything was multiple choice. Then I had to write an essay. I had used pencil for everything, so it felt kinda weird, as I've been using pens to write things for the last 6 years. I did use pencils back in Canada, but thanks to my 6 year term in Singapore, I feel weird using pencils again.
Right. Eh... The quiz was quite okay too, and I had to draw something from some abstract line on the paper. That was quite alright. I somehow drew an angel. The quiz was okay overall, but there was one question I couldn't answer. It was freaking frustrating! Let's see you try it.
Use only three straight lines to connect these nine dots, without lifting pen from paper or crossing over another line.
After doing everything so well, I was a little peeved I couldn't answer this trick question. So I passed it up, with my own lines (which left out 2 dots), because I couldn't figure out the answer. I then used the school computers immediately and googled the answer. Seems that using 4 lines is simple, but I only found 2 websites that listed the answer for 3 lines. Try it out yourself! I felt like a complete retard after seeing the solution. I'll post up the answer tomorrow. You'll see why the logical answer just makes you feel even more stupid -.-.
