    So I have a cold and it is pretty bad.
    I have a fever, my nose is runny and so are my eyes. My chest hurts and I don't feel like eating. I have a geography test on Thursday which is annoying because we had to rush into it especially when the teacher who planned the test was on paternity leave for 2 weeks. So there is pressure because we received the revise list today and because I do Art I won't have time to revise tomorrow because I come home late. So I can't cram everything in especially when I am sick. Also I have an English essay on Friday and I want to focus on that. I really don't feel like going to school tomorrow because I need rest. I burn myself out all the time and my body is giving up. But taking a day off would effect my attendance.

    Oh 😬 once I felt awful in geography and the teacher sent me to the office because I looked genuinely ill. Maybe if you explain to you teacher that your unwell she’s may feel sympathetic. Or do as much work as possible until a certain time and then rest.
    At least then you know you tried your best 👍🏽

    I was in Art today and she told me to go home but I didn't because I had other lessons to attend. But when I told I was going to go home, she said okay.

    At least she knows that’s you are unwell 🤒 I know being at school feeling like hell is the worst going home made me feel much better! Because then you aren’t 100% listening and maybe concentrating.
    Recover as soon as possible,
    You may be dragging in on as you are working a lot. Hope it helped

    I’m sure the teachers will understand tie situation if you say your unwell on the year 6 evening. And remember it’s only October. Any tests you miss out now they’ll most probably make you sit Thelma after half term. Then it means you’ll feel better, you can revise properly and do the best you can!
    Btw what year are you in?

    Rest up now and catch up on work later, you can do assessments after the half-term and it'll all be fine. Attendance doesn't matter as much as your health.

    It's funny because I took a day off school today for:

    1. To avoid cross country
    2. Period pains.

    I'M NOT RUNNING WHEN ITS MY FIRST DAY
