    I'm so sorry this is late! I have been crazy busy all week. I was intending to write this last Sunday but ended up having no time as I spent the only free time I had writing and publishing on my personal blog.
    I just thought I would share this regardless since I said I would.

    Thursday: On Thursday I spent the day writing my politics flash cards. I hadn't done any politics work besides read the news everyday so I decided to turn class notes into flash cards. They are going to come handy when it comes to mock week this month. I focused on understanding the notes and consolidating them as much as possible.

    Friday: I didn't do much work on Friday. I pretty much just did bits of coursework for History and English. I didn't spend too long on it because I lost my motivation and didn't want to produce crappy quality so I just stopped when I hit a wall. I've learnt that it is better to listen to your body and stop instead of forcing yourself to carry on when you're tired and unmotivated.

    Saturday: I definitely slacked on Saturday. I pre planned to spend about three hours doing history coursework and then ended up watching YouTube for three hours instead. Honestly, if YouTube didn't exist, I would be so sad but I would also be doing so much better in...well everything really. I can't go a day without watching some YouTube! Its kind of bad actually.I did make up for it on Sunday though

    Sunday: Although I didn't do a single bit of work on Satuday which was totally unplanned, I was super productive on Sunday. I focused on American History. I do British History and American History and because I have different teachers and class times, I treat them as separate subjects. I had done British History but totally forgot about American, so I spent all of Sunday doing so. I made some flashcards for some of the content I had class notes for and wrote a full essay for one of the modules we have just finished. I handed it in to my teacher on Monday, so hopefully when I get it back, I can see where I need work and where I'm pretty solid.

    So this was the second half of my half term. It was pretty mixed. Some days I relaxed and other days I was super productive. I was happy with what I got done and I'm glad I planned the week beforehand because I really think that was what helped me have such a good half term.

    Again, sorry this is going up late. Hope you'ved had a great week.
