    As a dawdler who leaves everything - almost always - last minute, I have deduced (mainly from past fiascos) that I may need the help of a blog to keep me steadfast on my objectives. When I am not occupied with non-secular studies outside of college (every weekday for three hours), I find myself net surfing, listening to Debussy, Brahms, and Yiruma's compositions to subdue my concerns of failure. I would like to say that I spend my frees sensibly, regurgitating information, but I do not, yet. I spend them fretting about how much I have to get done instead, usually with a friend, walking aimlessly around the campus. :stupid:

    For my courses I'm studying...
    - (WJEC) Religious Studies [RS 1/2 PHIL - The Philosophy of Religion and RS 1/2 BS - Biblical Studies (The Old Testament)]
    - (Edexcel) English Literature [Poetry, Drama and Prose]
    - (Edexcel) English Language [Language and Context/Identity and Child Language Acquisition]
    - (AQA) Sociology [Education, Research Methods, and Families and Households]

    Having been predicted Bs for all of them, achieving AABB and then AAAB during my first few mocks, one would assume I am in a considerably good position, but with all the pressure and mental strain, I am afraid something will go wrong.

    My weakest subject at the moment is Literature, but I believe it is because I am not too sure how I am supposed to revise for it. With another mock week coming up, I will hopefully find a way that suits me before then - a modus operandi of some sort.

    And of course, they are all essay based! :gasp:

    It looks like you're doing well so far with your great mock results!

    Thank you so much! :grin: I can only hope I will be able to maintain them. Things are beginning to get burdensome by day. If anything, I pray that by the end of the year I can look back and know I did try.

    Again, thank you so much! Your comment only pushes me to work with much more perseverance. :lovehug: Much appreciated, murakamami.
    You're very welcome! By the working load you are doing I am sure you will be maintaining or achieving higher in your marks . You're reducing any further burdens by doing the work now, and closer to exam time you will feel a lot more relaxed seeing as you have started preparing much early for it . That's okay, I believe in complimenting those who work hard. Also, I found your list of composers very interesting, I also find Ludovico Einaudi a very talented composer to listen to .

    Thank you. I will work to not fail my teachers' and my parents' (and your) expectations of what I am capable of.

    Good; you will do really well with a positive outlook of yourself don't forget about taking care of yourself too (which should always come first) e.g. Eating properly, sleeping etc...


    You know, I felt as if I did not start soon enough, but you saying that really relieves me.

    Honestly, I know a lot of people who have done nothing. So don't worry; you are starting at a very good time

    :gah: I have just listened to one of his on the basis of your suggestion, and I can say, I will be listening to his compositions more often.
    He's amazing; maybe you will become fond of him like I did .
