    i wanna go really far from home, my mother is just not so keen because of the surgery and stuff hahaha

    my firm is a toss up between Leeds and Nottingham, Insurance is Liverpool just because its the lowest of the 5

    Mine is pretty much done and dusted just need to talk to a few teachers and book my reference reading then it should be off. oh my god how EXCITING are you excited or nervous or..?
    aw its a shame cardiff isnt up there for you! would of been nice to know someone who is planning on going there before even turning up!

    im excited for uni just nervous for exams. i didnt revise at all at gcse so i dont actually know how to revise wordy subjects (like chemistry) but im pretty good at maths and theres no words so thats not too bad. im just worried chem is gonna bring my results down bc so far ive tried all sorts of revision tactics and the highest I've ever got in a test is a C! (and it was just scrapping it !!)

    so yeah thats my head atm lol, are you nervous as well?

    i'm nervous because i have never been proud of my results before even though i'm known for working hard the majority of the time my work never shows and it honestly physically hurts me every time. but this year i am literally doing everything i physically can and i'm nervous that I still won't make it

    yeah if its any consolation my older brother got A*A*A and has recently graduated with a first in physics at Manchester, so theres a lot of pressure from the fam to do well and ive always sort of lived in his shadow. thats been the same in gcses, ASs and will be the same at A-level. no matter how hard I try i will never be able to match him, but im slowly coming to terms with that. even still i dont think AAA equivalent is 'bad' at all so im not all down in the dumps. im sure youll do well

    I cried just a teeny tiny bit today. I think I made my expectations overwhelm me because I have a maths test coming up and i love the bloody subject so damn much that I for once want to feel like I have done well. It's tomorrow last period. i'll tell you guys how it goes.

    Good night,
    Abi xx
