    Day 5

    Back to school tomorrow, and i'm actually pretty excited to knuckle down and just get sh** done. I've looked at my timetable and have loads of frees which i hope too utilize to their maximum potential- Going to the library and not getting distracted.

    Today I did:

    Pol Notes
    History CW
    My own 'Uni profiles' were i create a little log with facts and info about different universities etc

    Day ?

    Some personal reasons have kept me from updating everyday, but since my last blog i've done/ found the following:

    -10,000 word History CW Plan
    - Found out that I got 126/140 in Economics.
    - Finished writing notes on 3/10 economic chapters
    - Wrote notes on all of Conservatism

    And of course all of the essays and various other homework.

    I’m only GCSE but a good idea could be to write notes about not just Conservatism in general, but maybe subtitle Social conservatism and Fiscal conservatism, and how they are/n’t compatible?

    Please please please don't overwork yourself too much. It's really good that you're working so hard already, but you don't want to burn out when it gets more seriously.

    Keep this work up during weekdays, and give yourself weekends off to relax, do hobbies, and just have a brain-break. You will need all the brain-breaks you will get, my friend.

    Good luck with Year 13 - it will be difficult, but make the most of it.
