    Hallo liebe Leute

    I'm now in year 13 (though I am a bit older; 20 years old) and next year I will be heading off to university. I have already achieved an A in A-Level Sociology and this year I am doing A-Level German & Philosophy.

    My targets are going to be:

    A-Level German: A* (AS = A)
    A-Level Philosophy: A (AS = C, 1 mk off B)

    My firm uni will be Sheffield and the course will be modern languages (majoring in German & Beginner's Russian), with Leeds being my insurance and I think my other choices were Birmingham, Manchester and another that I must search for. Sheffield requires ABB and since I already have the A achieved I only need 2 Bs this year, but hey I'm aiming high.

    I've never achieved an A* (at GCSE or A-Level) so this year I really wanna try and do that in German. Because my speaking was a B at AS my teacher doesn't want to predict me the A*, so I'm hoping I can surpass my A grade prediction

    I think most updates I post in here will be related to German and I'll try and post like at least twice a week I guess.

    So yeah uh that's me I hope you... enjoy this idunno.

    Hello my first update! 21/09

    I've pretty much mainly done stuff for German this week, not really any philosophy as we haven't got '''too deep''' into any theories yet... kinda.
    --
    So this week I've done quite a lot considering it's only Wednesday

    - Started recording a bunch of useful idioms for my German A-Level fromTHIS BOOK.
    - Been working on so-called 'verbalisation' grammar withTHIS BOOK (If you're looking for /really/ difficult grammar, buy this lmao.)
    - Learning all my environment vocab for the goddamn boring environment section of A-Level; have some on Anki but most on GoConqr.
    - On tumblr some1 made a 30 day challenge where you write/speak about whatever the theme is for that day and I've been doing that (speaking and writing a transcript) and yeah it's helping w/ my speaking skills.
    - We have a native German who speaks with us after class now so yeah we did that today... honestly i must have dealt with spoken german for like 4 hours today kill me.
    - Our teacher gave us a grammar booklet to go through the other week and it was menna last like two months but uh I did it in 10 days lmao.
    - Have done a first draft of my german-russian PS, had my teacher look at it today and she said it was a very good first draft and there's only a few things I need to change woo.
    - Borrowed 2 German books and started reading one of them (Kleider Machen Leute) - the other is die Verwandlung.

    Phew yeah and just other sheets for like German class and stuff. Right now I have a small writing homework task to complete yeah so that'll be funnn.
