    Update #4

    So today was the first day of school (yay...) I accomplished my goals today:
    • I've gained confidence in taking strange moments around weird points, and in M3 circular motion problems.
    • I managed to not botch up my Chemistry practical, maybe i'll be a half decent Chemist
    • I made some pain au chocolate (not really a goal i set, but i was pretty proud with this)
    • 2 M3 Past papers getting 74 and 73 respectively (i'm feeling pretty confident with all of mechanics M1-M3, now i need to start properly on M4 and M5. But that can be sorted once S3 and S4 are out of the way, i need a break)

    I usually watch motivational videos or write down quotes to give me a jumpstart throughout the day. I used to watch that Shia Labeouf video before all my AS exams :rofl:

    I think you should make a motivational video and upload it to youtube, that way you can share your motivation and all your goals.

    speaking of which .. what are your goals for Thursday evening?

    I'm not a fan of vlogging, but i could give it a shot. I'll run a practice trial on Friday!

    To not die in the mosh at a gig quite frankly.

    Update

    I did all of my goals which i set, but i feel a little unproductive since i was at work or with friends for ~9hours today. My goals for tomorrow are to carry on with FP3, focusing on conics and vectors!

    But alas tomorrow evening i'll be at a gig in London, so no work will be accomplished. (well i could do some on the train)

    P.S. the band is Modern Baseball fyi

    I just did Q9 of STEP II 2004, it's a glorious question for those practicing moments! Actually all of the mechanics on this paper is very nice

    So today i did:
    • The June 2011 CHEM4 past paper, i managed to get 98/100 in the given time. I'm feeling pretty confident with unit 4 in Chemistry atm, i'm going to now move onto practicing unit 5 then i'll revisit unit later in March.
    • The June 2012 FP3 past paper (very easy paper, i should've done another) and got full raw in under an hour. I'm going to practice conics some more tomorrow.
    • Unit 5 Physics Cosmology questions and flashcards (ones on measuring distances and the equations)
    • Flashcards on Redox potentials (finished this module)
    I'll upload pictures of my flashcards onto a google drive folder and attach the link to the first post!I did nothing yesterday evening, i have work tonight. So the bulk of my day is going to lessons with 2 hours of "frees". I might do some M5 vectors, actually i'll take it easy and do a unit 4 Physics PP.

    Thanks for the encouragement, it's nice to have support for something you enjoy doing

    I'm not an avid baker, i bought some reduced ready made mixture from the Co-op. *cue dramatic music*
    it was a shock to me too, it sounds like really pompous A level, so i don't usually say i do it lol
