    27/04/2016 - Evening update

    It feels like I never update anymore.

    Today was simply awful. It started off with RS with that STUPID trainee we've had for a few weeks - I cannot stand her. Then we had physics where we did a p4 revision lesson but I did no work at all. After break we had English where we had an of mice and men lit question, mine started off really well but then I ran out of ideas and lost focus on the question in the middle so I probably screwed it up. After English we had double chemistry, literally a recipe for disaster. Our new teacher is constantly unsure of himself and is confusing things that don't have to be confusing. I actually hated today so much.

    As if all that wasn't bad enough, I fell on the stairs on the bus today too.

    Although the day has finally come - stress has officially hit me, and bloody hard as well. I've cried 4 times today (I absolutely hate crying but it's becoming more and more frequent now), and I'm really jittery and feel on the edge of a nervous breakdown. I feel sick, and really, really scared. Nothing that I've revised has paid off so far. I just feel completely and utterly useless . There's also one person stressing me out on top of all this but she doesn't even know she's doing it.

    Today's just been a horrible, horrible day.

    Thank you and hopefully i can be like this till my exams finish I also used to have eczema around my eyes and it used to be the worst thing ever , eventually the doctor gave me this cream and it went away although now there are dark circles around my eyes but it's not that bad as it's going away How's your Eczema, i hope it's not a distracting you or anything
    Ah you used to have eczema too? Glad it's gone for you too - it must have been annoying being right around your eyes - I know how you feel. Mine is quite bad and it flared just last night a little which was frustrating but it should calm down

    Hey I'm really sorry to hear this!! If there is anything I can do to help let me know - and I suppose a possitiive you can take from thisis that it happened now andnot closer to your exams, so you've got time to continue revising and de-stress a little

    I did absolutely loads of revision yesterday, aided by the fact I had 3 full hours of science revision in class!
    Tonight my brother is coming round to help me with IT and we are also celebrating his birthday which will be nice
    Right now I'm off to the old peoples home for the final time as I will have finished my six months in time for extra exam revision which I am pleased about as well
    Also, I heard back from something I applied for a while a go which was a youth panellist for a charity and I got the place so I will be going down to London for the day soon which I am really excited about as I live up north so I've only been when I was a lot younger! It's also going to look great on my CV and personal statement when the time comes... Just waiting to hear back from a summer school now.

    What the hell??!! Why did she not like it?
    basically she wasn't too keen on my structure - as I'm meant to link all different poetic forms like all together :/ also she said that some of my points could have been expressed more clearly and placed into different sections.

    it is really annoying, as i have to redo my work yet again. but i want an A* so I will keep on going until I get it right. she is a very picky teacher, I mean I had to rewrite my creative writing 5 times before she loved it.

    this weekend, I will just knuckle down and write the 2500 words. i am just going to take it as a positive though

    I think today was all right considering I was tired. For some reason, I always seem to be so tire lately! I guess I should sleep a bit more earlier.
    Maths- past paper, needs to be marked
    ICT- managed to almost finish the second topic- operating online. Just got copyright and security left. 5 more topics to go!
    English Literature- tested my knowledge of the storyline of Anita and Me
    French- not much of an achievement but I did manage to learn 10 words on Memrise

    During school.
    History- economic changes in Germany, Nazi policies towards the young and the women and the final solution
    Science- Revised energy in C3 and batch process as well as allotropes. Managed to some questions on it
    Maths- attempted more harder questions

    French is making me cry. How do you guys revise for French listening and Reading? My Coursework totals up to a high A after moderation. I'm cool with that due to the fact that French is one of my weaker subjects and I don't particularly like it.
