    Lol, just lost my only two friends at school. Yes, I still have 'acquaintances' but I wouldn't count those people as 'friends.' One of the friends who I lost completely insulted and ripped apart my love of literature and my views of state schools being equal to private schools! Calling me prejudiced... Like I will not be friends with someone like that. I would rather them be removed from my life. The other 'friend' who I lost is incredibly weak and will stick to just hanging out with that girl and another girl who isn't very nice. I took great offense by having my love of English insulted because it is very personal and close to me.

    Anyway, I got a high B in chemistry, so that's alright

    Agh, so I have just heard that loads of people were discussing their opinions about me in their class today. Apparently I was called 'pretentious' and 'angry.' These attitudes are said to have come through when I was in physics and answering questions. So, I thought back to that time and I can only conclude that people are calling me that because I have a strong desire to perform well in my subjects. Perhaps I was angry because I didn't perform as well as I would have wanted to in the paper, but I don't understand why they have the right to think that of me. I mean they don't even know me... Personally, I don't think that I am 'pretentious' at all! Maybe I have a wider range of vocab and greater knowledge of the arts? Idek. I try and use my brain to enjoy life! Right now I am trying to think back to a time where I have acted 'pretentious,' and actually can't think of one.. Lol, I have massive issues relating to people. I mean I can do short term friendships and acquaintances, but I obviously suck at long term friendships. 😂
    I am finally being me and again, people don't like it. I can never make anyone happy.
    You did the right thing. Those guys don't deserve you! If people don't like you because of how you are, then there is something wrong with me. Don't worry, ill ways be true to yourself! Those girls are just jealous of the fact that you want to get good grades! And I find it ride that they are insulting your love for English! What is their problem? And how are you 'pretentious'?

    What I'm trying to say is don't be upset! I think your wonderful and unique and if people don't like you, it's their loss. Work even harder and show them who is boss! Don't let them get to you!

    I'm the same in terms of friendships so I can relate. Since primary, I've never had a real friend as they find my desire to get good grades 'weird' . Some of the acquaintances I have are sometimes afraid to talk to me because of 'how' other people will think of them. I had some friends in year 9 but they all left me after finding out that I achieved an A* in a GCSE which I was entered early and the fact that I was the only one who got it. Those girls then spread some rumours about me and everyone in my year decided to 'isolate' me so I can fail. I don't understand how that works. That just motivated me to work even harder.😂

    You will true friends one day! And also, we are here for you!

    Wow that's a lot of past papers! Hope they all paid off for you

    And yeah they were pretty good! The German reading was like a gift from God! Listening was fine until the middle where I know I've messed up a bit but not much. Annoyingly vocab learning didn't help as there wasn't much in there off the list. Geography was good too, AQA clearly heard my prayer for China's one child policy! How were they for you?

    Haha thank you I hope they did!!

    Yeah I liked the reading but the Listening was hell! Really didn't like it. As for Geography I think it was reasonable but the 8 marker in development was a bit iffy, as was some of the wording but hey it's done now

    I've been revising all day for Maths and partially bio. Maths has got me so stressed. I don't even know why I'm stressed. I wasn't as stressed for the non calc as I am for the calc paper even though I usually score more on the calc. Am I over reacting ? I just really want to get an A overall. 😰

    Yeah the wording was terrible! But I'm sooo glad it's all over now

    Kl. Thanks for reassuring me but I don't think my amount of stress will go away because everyone has been saying that the grade boundaries will be high this year. I just really want that A.

    Nice signature by the way.

    Well done Hannah. This is why I don't like being too close to people. I simply have a acquaintances and nothing but that. Of course there are people that I trust and have had a long friendship with but the thing is that I just like being on my own.This is the reason why I've been nicknamed the 'Lone wolf' by people and especially my English teacher. Lol. He's the one that started it.

    I strongly believe that one does not form 'true friendship' until college or even university because you're still in the process of development and your interests, mindset and path of life changes during secondary school. I knew loads of people really well and we drifted apart due to the change of interest and paths in life. True friends are those that help you when in need not those that you play football with or people that are a good laugh,


    ⚔🛡⚔~Nothing happens to anyone that he is not fitted by nature to bear - Maximus Decimus Meridius~⚔🛡⚔
    Yeah, I completely get you. It's just been such a bad day tbh... Not trying to be depressing or anything but the reason why I didn't reply ASAP was because I have kind of spent the evening crying... lol. I used to have trust in quite a lot of people, but now (due to everything that has happened-being stabbed in the back so many times) I only trust about 2 close friends, who I hardly see - but know that they have my back. I used to hate being on my own, but over the last two years I have learned to love and appreciate it. So, it won't be awkward to be at school on my own, I will just focus directly on my GCSEs now. 'Lone wolf' sounds quite poetic, it's good that you have people who you can trust though. He sounds a bit like my English teacher - one who does like to joke about people in the class!😂

    (Original post by lala*15)
    Aww..it's fine Hannah...I've never had any friends tbh..I've only ever had acquaintances...besides think on the bright side...they don't deserve you...you'll get better friends once you're in uni...
    Well done for your chemistry though...so proud of u...☺️

    Thanks lala! Yeah, friendships are pretty hard work. Tbh I am probably just going to give up and not care anymore. If the girl apologises then of course I will forgive her. But I doubt that I will go back to being 'friends' with her. Aha, yeah but there are about 120 girls in the year and I haven't developed or got close friendship with any of them, it kinda makes me question whether or not there is something wrong with me! Thanks, I hope all of your GCSEs have gone really well!

    (Original post by lala*15)
    Don't stress about it..they're just jealous of how smart u r...don't let them get to u..just ignore them...they don't deserve you...
    How long are you gonna be in this school for...I'm guessing a year or r u staying there for sixth form as well..?


    💝Life's too short💝
    Aha, I wish - the majority of them are smarter than me tbh! I think they are quite intimidated due to how alternative I am and how I have never followed the crowd. Apparently according to many adults, I am quite mature for my age. Which I doubt. Well, I have the rest of year ten and then year eleven - but then I'm just gonna get the hell out of there! I am going to a sixth form college. Now, I think I will just focus on my GCSEs, forget about 'fake friendships' and make sure that I perform well and achieve high grades. Tbh, the whole situation has actually given me more time to focus on work.

    I was just like you at GCSEs and my friends always asked me how I got all A*'s and my reply was so similar. I said I want to get the highest mark and not the highest grade
    Unfortunately I didn't get the highest marks for all of them but did get 11/11 A*'s.
    I'm in year 12 atm and I do
    Biology, Chemistry, Physics and A2 Maths (early entry for AS Maths and got full marks for C1 and C2 but barely scrapped an A in D1. I had completed GCSE mathematics in november of year 10. It was modular back then). Good luck hope you get the marks you want and not just the grades!

    How did your exams go ?
    Thank you, you too. I'm not revising much for Maths - mainly doing Psychology. Maths is my strong point and I've already got an A* but I'm aiming for another one. Although on my results day paper it would still say Maths - A*. So psychology was my main priority today - 20 case studies to remember + notes
