Christmas Holidays!
We broke up for the holidays yesterday but unfortunately I still have homework to do

  • Finish Classics notes
  • Read all my books for English Lit
  • Do an essay on Frankenstein
  • Write RS notes on conflict
  • Research Giuseppe Fiorelli
  • Read My Sister In This House for drama

I'm also going to be auditioning for NYT so I need to prepare a monologue and a song. All of this on top of a little bit of revision for my GCSEs so the holidays will be quite interesting.

:angelwings:HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!:angelwings:

It's 2017 and I couldn't be more grateful! 2016 ended very painfully for me as it did for a lot of people, because of the deaths of Carrie Fisher and
Debbie Reynolds. I was beyond devastated, especially since they both had a massive part to play in my childhood
and inspiring me to become an actress.

However, on a much brighter note, I have managed to do the following from my last list:
  • Read Much Ado and most of LOTF for English (Just Frankenstein left)
  • My Frankenstein Essay
  • Read My Sister In This House
  • Finish my Classics and RS notes

I haven't, however, researched Giuseppe Fiorelli yet. I've also narrowed my NYT audition monologue choice to about 3


New Years Resolutions
Lose some weight
Work harder when it comes to homework
Stretch every day
Keep practising my acting everyday
Go to every audition I get put up for
Nail my GCSE grades

An optional New Years Resolution I've made for myself is to try and start a Film Review blog thing (With elements of acting and stuff too)

I went back to school yesterday and in these last 2 days I had my English Lit mocks.

They didn't go amazingly well but they weren't terrible either. I mainly need to be able to see what I need to improve however

I also go back to work tomorrow, which is nice because I haven't seen any of my coworkers over the holidays!

Aw, thank you Although, it's mainly because I play a lot of sports and firstly want to lose a bit of fat (So I can run faster) and then slowly replace it with muscle (or at least I'll try too)

So I got my English Lit results back on Friday. I was convinced that I had done terribly but I ended up getting a Level 6! Which is the equivalent to a B! I am beyond surprised because although I did work really hard to try and get a good grade, I've never gotten above a Level 4, which is a low C. I'm beyond proud of myself and now I have to revise for my Biology ISA on Tuesday as well as do my 6 pieces of homework which are all due in on Wednesday for some reason.

I haven't updated in quite a while because I've had a stressful few weeks.

I had to hand in my PE coursework (which I had zero motivation for) and revise for tests because my school is going crazy and now doing mocks every single week.

In better news I got a grade 6 on my English Lit Frankenstein test
