    So my to-do list for today was:
    • Write up music keywords
    • Write up science notes
    • Maths revision in preparation for Thursdays assessment
    • Finish an art project
    Spoiler:

    Out of those things there were only 2 things I didn't manage to complete which I'm going to do tomorrow instead
    • I didn't manage to do my maths revision
    • I also didnt write up my science notes

    So I'm going to make sure I complete those tomorrow



    Today wasn't really a productive day however I'm gonna make sure tomorrow is better.

    Thanks, I went to school today and I ended up not having to do the assembly,
    1. because no one else turned up to do it and there was no way I was going it alone.
    2. the teacher ended up changing the whole presentation anyway.

    I haven't spoken to the teacher that asked me to do it yet. I don't see her until Thursday but I honestly don't think she cares that I didn't do it.

    I had a panic attack this morning before school and I found myself really paranoid on the way to school and I was really stressed and on edge when I got to school. So it's kinda a good thing I didn't end up having to do it.

    My anxiety has been really bad today and it really affected my day.



    It's been stressful.
    Here's what I needed to get done today:
    - Maths revision
    - Complete artwork and start next project

    I managed to complete my artwork but I couldn't start the next project because I had to leave as the teachers were having a meeting but I'm going to complete that on Friday and hopefully tomorrow.
    We had a Food and Nutrition assessment today which was unexpected, I didn't do very well

    However I got my English Literature assessment on Blood Brothers back, it was analysing Blood Brothers through Mrs Johnstone. I found it quite difficult but I came out with a band 6. 21 marks out of 29. I don't think I did too bad but there's tons of room for improvement.

    Now I'm getting stressed again because I applied to be a prefect and they had chosen who the prefects are over a week ago but they aren't announcing it!! It's making me soo nervous since I rushed my application so I'm not sure if I even got picked.

    Anyways, tomorrow is a super busy day so I need to get some rest and hope that tomorrow is better than today..
