    Greetings Mesdames and Messieurs! And welcome! Welcome indeed!

    This blog is a huble attempt to systemize my studies, and to stimulation the motivation to succeed in general! At the moment, I am on a gap year, already having achieved AAC in History, Economics, and Mathematics A-levels respectively. This summer, I'm re-taking the Mathematics A2, as well as fully self-studying the whole Philosophy A-level.

    The goal is to secure As in both Philosophy and Mathematics. And then to proceed to study Philosophy at University. Probably in London. Hopefully at UCL. If not, then I already hold an offer for KCL.

    So, what will this blog be about? I will try to write every day with regards to my progress! Also, I will share revision tips! The success stories! And the ones of failure as well! And much more! I might even post my philosophy essays here!

    Sounds interesting? I have no doubt that it does! Enjoy!

    Tomorrow, I'm going to read the whole unit "Anomalous Monism" while making flashcards! After that, I will make flashcards off my notes "We value art because it informs us".

    Apart from that, I am also going to create a more-or-less specific plan of actions for the next 2 months.

    DONE!

    Ok, so instead of making a 2 month plan, I decided to make a two week one so as to adjust it according to the progress later on. And that's only for philosophy - going to figure out everything regarding maths during the upcoming week.

    The plan is to finish "The philosophy of mind" unit which I started today, as well as to simultaneously make flashcards about all the key themes. I am also going to make flashcards on "The value of art" & "Reason and experience" units - both of which I already went through beforehand. All that due to the 8th of February. This means that every day I will have to do 1 handout on "The philosophy of mind" unit, as well as putting about the same hours into transformation of my current notes on "The value of art" & "Reason and experience" into flashcards.

    Cheers! I am thinking of having a free timetable and just trying to complete the tasks I set for the day whenever I feel like it. That worked for the past two days, and I think I will continue like that until something changes. What would you say?
