    subject rants:
    so we're almost at that half term mark, let's 'reflect' or in my case rant about the last couple of weeks

    English
    absolute rubbish, my teacher is a mess and her voice makes me fall asleep. it doesnt help that we always have english last period anyway. we've read through two acts of an inspector calls, she made us do some analysis thing but idk what its about. guess i'll have to learn all my english stuff off of youtube or something.

    Maths
    same teacher as year 8&9. not as bad as some of my friends maths teachers so its ok. done upper/lower bounds, some algebra things, quadratics, circle stuff.

    Biology
    not the best, but i love the subject so it makes it bearable. main thing that interested me was learning about stem cells, so cool.

    Chemistry
    actually amazing, got a new teacher who's fab, i think i might acc pass chemistry gcse. done some bonds and nanoparticle stuff

    Physics
    a mess. hate my teacher, dont understand anything. just really dislike physics

    German
    ok, but grammar's getting to me as well as the translations fgs. still, love it alot and my class is lit

    Latin
    getting kinda bored tbh, but its an easy gcse. lit teacher and set to is full of bants

    History
    thought it would be bad, but is acc quite good. learnt alot, although still dunno how to write an essay yet

    Art
    the bane of my life currently, its ok bc i like art, but im not good at it and am surrounded by amazing artists and im just like omd

    Drama
    love love love. we don't even do much but its just yesssss love my teacher and set, going to see a frantic assembly play on thurs so yeah

    6.30
    Wake up and pray. Get ready etc.
    I don't really do breakfast bc I find it hard to eat so early in the morning. I ate an eclair and a couple of shortbread things.

    The perks of going to a grammar school is that my school is an hour away from school so I've gotta get a coach(!!) This gives us time to do any last minute hw or like just sleep.
