    Life's pretty good actually. No major complaints right now although I can see that changing when I start my A Levels...(not that I'm not looking forward to starting them :p:)

    How's life up in your neck of the woods? You heard from your friend that moved to Alton?

    :hello:

    :yawn: ... I'm very tired, but looking forward to starting school next Wednesday! I need to start getting back into a proper sleeping pattern of early night, early morning. If i don't now, I'll be shattered when I start at my school, which is not what I want!

    I've got to go and get my eyebrow bar changed to a clear retainer before school starts, as I don't want to give them a bad impression of me ... that'll cost money, so

    Plus, I've been getting ready. I've got all my folders prepared for school, and I bought a pencil case today, which is now filled with all the correct stuff. ... I still need to get some very important things though :
    (a) French grammar book
    (b) Mini French dictionary ...
    With yet more money to be spent on those, I dunno how I'm gonna cope ... I'm trying to get my mum to buy them for me :p:

    Hehe, I'm going a bit OTT Here!

    ;no; I haven't spoken to my friend properly since she went

    Ditto! My body clock is a bit funked up right now, mainly due to the internet (and TSR) :p:

    Ditto to the folder thing. I have a lever arch for each subject that I'll keep at home and another lever arch to use at college. I also bought shed loads of plastic wallets/subject dividers etc. What can I say? I'm organised!

    I'm starting (officially) next Wednesday too but have to go in on the 1st and the 5th to sort out various things. But lessons start properly on the 6th

    It'll be Christmas before we know it :eek: Then a new year filled with more exams and the exciting prospect of filling a UCAS form out :eek: :p: :rolleyes:

    Anyway I'm off to work. Catch you later :hugs:

    During school hours, tis normal for me to get off the computer by 10pm and go to sleep by 11. However, throughout my two months (:eek:) of holidays, I've been coming off of here at 2am and getting to sleep by 3... and then waking up at 11-12 in the morning, instead of my usual 6.45 ...
    Gah, I need to try to get to bed earlier ... every time I say that, I just end up ignoring it :p:. During school time, I hate getting up so early
    Ditto to the folder thing. I have a lever arch for each subject that I'll keep at home and another lever arch to use at college. I also bought shed loads of plastic wallets/subject dividers etc. What can I say? I'm organised!
    I've been told by a reliable source that I only need A4 folders for school and i won't need Lever Arch files :p:... which is good, because they're very bulky! I had loads of plastic wallets at home already, but I'm wondering if I need to get subject dividers ^o) ... should I get them to divide up modules and stuff? :s:

    It'll be Christmas before we know it :eek: Then a new year filled with more exams and the exciting prospect of filling a UCAS form out :eek: :p: :rolleyes:
    I know! :eek: ... just over a year until we applying to university :afraid: :eek4:
    Anyway I'm off to work. Catch you later :hugs:
    You can reply later then
