    Hi everyone! It's really nice to meet you! I'm Yodaller. Um... tbh I have no idea what I'm doing right now. Maybe I'll add stuff to this intro later.

    Eh.

    Anyway...

    Quick Things about Me
    I love music. Ask me about Classical Music (Romantic period is my favourite) or Kpop and I could chat your ear off. I ADORE good food and my friends (Not sure how they'd feel being lumped together like that) I also have an unhealthy obsession with Star Wars :starwars:.
    Oh, and bubbles. I love bubbles.

    Why I'm writing this blog
    I'm currently 8 months away from the first scary moment of my life (GCSEs !!!! :afraid:)
    I thought I would start this blog as a kind of motivation device to study hard and so I could look back on this and just cringe at my stupidity. Looking Forward to it already!

    What Subjects I'm Doing
    • English Language and Literature (AQA)
    • Maths (EdExcel) :eviltongue:
    • Religious Studies (AQA)
    • Double Science Award (Edexcel iGCSE)
    • French as a Foreign Language (CIE)
    • Mandarin Chinese as a Foreign Language (CIE)
    • History (CIE)
    • Music (EdExcel)
    • (Short Course) Latin (WJEC) :eviltongue:
    • (Short Course) Ancient Greek (OCR)- Already Done!

    I hope this gave you a little idea 'bout me and I also hope you're not too repulsed, Future Me (and whoever else happens to be reading this).

    I might (not) edit this later. Maybe if I just leave it, it'll add to the authenticity? (Read between the lines- I'm just lazy :lazy:)

    K, Baii!

      What about ancient Greek? You did pretty well in that.

      Well, it's an interesting subject. Sad that the presentation and portrayal of maths in the British education system puts so many off.

        I hope you can guide me into the right path of studying.Trust me.I love studying last minute and I just cram everything in.I find it so hard to remember information that I make stupid links to old information.Literally even my teachers told me I should have a little more self confidence but I always tell them I am speaking realistically and know what my brain is capable of.And that's not a lot.

        More like into endless hell...
