grow your grades 2017!
why hello there! welcome to the little corner of TSR that I call my own-- I've been in a bit of a slump lately, what with senioritis and getting burned out by all the damn internal assessments etcetera.
But I'm getting ahead of myself-- hello; I'm tchaikovskyed, you call either call me that or.... yes just call me that. I'm sadly married to the IB Diploma and we're getting divorced in four months, hurrah!
I have also just finished my mocks, and I don't feel that I did too well so... it's really time to pull my **** together and prepare for the last charge of the light brigade.
So this blog is basically my last attempt to charge forwards full speed ahead to the big exams in April/May, and get those grades I need to get to Oxford! Be prepared for much drama, references to all kinds of popular media and ranting about things that might seem completely random, and of course, my journey to getting those grades!
