Bonjour LJ pals, and people who may be silently reading this,
Wow, It's been ages since my last post. Again. Oops :)
Well, a lot seems to be happening right now, in school anyway. I'm in year 11, so most of my friends in my year (inc. me, lets be honest here) is on he brink of going totally stressoid, and barricading ourselves in our rooms and refusing to go to school.
Ok, slight exaggeration there, but my dear teachers are really starting to pile on the pressure. For example, my homework for this week includes:
· TWO science practice papers, one chemistry and one biology, AND revision Q’s for a Bio section of your choice (um, how about if I choose “none”)
· Revise the whole of the Vietnam section for History, and prepare for a practice exam on Tuesday
· Maths: revise a whole long list of things that I just do not understand
· Geography: Population – finish revision booklet and practice questions
· Re-read Lord of the Flies for English, and memorise key scenes and quotes so they can be found easily during the exam
· Prepare for DT exam (note to self: DO NOT lose the exam prep sheet)
· General revision of everything else
So basically, my head will have fallen off by the end of next week.
To be honest, I am surprisingly calm right now, but I don’t think I will be in a fortnight. My first exam is on the 14th May, and the last on the 23rd June. Leaver’s assembly is on Wed. 25th, and Prom on the evening of 26th.
Omg, this is so scary: In 2 weeks and 4 days my exams start (note to self: orthodontist in the morning as well, DO NOT FORGET), in 8 weeks, my exams will be over, and in 4 months I will get my GCSE results, and just after that I’ll be in 6th form.
Whoa, is this growing up? Lol
I had to make a decision on what I’m doing for 6th form the other day, because Mr Conway (the head of 6th form, AKA my DT teacher, AKA "Conners") is trying to make tameable option grids that will suit everyone (an easy task, I think not) and so he asked me what my options were. Scarybananas! For a second, if someone were to have taken a picture me, I would have looked like a dear cought in the headlights. Next year, if my results allow, I will be taking Chemistry, Biology, Environmental Studies and Design. I keep going from thinking “yes I am sure this is what I want to do, don’t be silly” to “You stupid girl, why oh WHY did you choose Chemisty/Biology/Enviro Studies/Design??”. But I choose to ignore the latter, because that half of my brain makes life much more stressful. But really, I think I’ll do good on these options, so that’s how they’ll stay :D
I listened to an original song called "Okay" by mudblood428 before (hope you're having a merry ol' time in Scotland/England/Wales, V, wherever you're visiting today), and all I can say is “whoa”. It was so totally inspiring, and made me feel really positive about the future. You gotta go for the things that you want in life, not just take the easy road. So that’s my new outlook on life. (I just need to work out what exactly I want to do). .
On that slightly philosophical note, I shall go. Keep in touch, people!
love and stuff <3
