    You're very welcome, and of course! 17 days and counting! 😂

    That's fine, go ahead! Nope not yet, I start tomorrow but like you there won't be any proper lessons, just teacher rambling! Don't worry I definitely will ❤️

    UPDATE NUMBER TWO - tuesday 6th september

    today was the first actual day of proper lessons at school. the lessons were a lot more fast paced, pressurised and intense. it tired me out a lot, aha. the lessons were fun though and it seemed as though everything had finally 'clicked.' 💫 xo

    what i (academically) managed to achieve today:

    • i managed to complete half of my English homework on literature analysis, there were 6 questions, yet, i only managed to do 3. the work is due in tomorrow, however, it is incomplete. this is because the work was supposed to take 40 minutes, but, completing 3 questions (for me) took 3 hours... i feel like my english teacher is going to kill me, but, i mean 6 massive paragraphs of literature analysis in 40 minutes... plus research and planning... is it me or is that a bit much? it wasn't even a full essay or anything, which would have been better to complete in time. the questions that i was given were all about different things in the chapter.. 🙄 any advice on this predicament would be greatly appreciated.

    anyway, i feel like i have barely managed to achieve anything today. so, i am going to go and sleep now, night everyone. ❤️
