    You’ve just entered and trespassed a thread to be filled with struggles, tears, MORE struggles, a bunch of uninteresting stuff. This is your first warning


    And if that didn’t make you leave, then I guess youll have to keep reading on this GYG, but I'm not going to bother with any of that 'enter if you dare' or 'do so at your own peril..' How cliche. Also mainly because you wont perish reading this, if anything you'll fall asleep.


    I warned you.



    HeY! Whats up! To introduce myself, I'm a year 11 student has her gcses in 3 months, but isn’t in school right now. What? In December, on short notice, I underwent spinal fusion(straightening of spine with rods and screws) to correct 1 of 2 problems I suffer with my spine, we spent Christmas there, and I'm currently being home-schooled, because recovery has taken its toll!1!1!


    Studying at home is… well… Most schoolkids dream of being at home, waking up mid-afternoon, just starting school, all from the comfort of their bed…

    …no. home school is NOTHING like that. At least not for me. GCSEs are in 3 months so your girl has to get her self together! And feeling like - & LITERALLY having similar body structure to - Frankenstein’s monster does NOT make things any easier lmao.

    I have to wake up at 6, do my physio exercises, eat, and the schoolday begins. Yikes. After showering and reluctantly opening up the laptop, I have to answer emails from teachers and submit all due work- I warned you how boring this thread would be, but its not too late to turn back! Seriously, its not. Tutoring starts at 10am, and tidying my room for it is SUCH an effort let me tell you

    So I guess that’s pretty much my school day, with the off chance of binge watching a show on Netflix, trips to the hospital for x rays and check ups, oh and me complaining 25/8, if you want to read more, its up to you. Totally.


    wait, of course I'd forget to mention like the most important thing about this thread – my subjects! Lol here you go

    Spoiler:

    English Literature; predicted 8, mock 8,target 8/9
    English Language: predicted 8,mock 5, target 8/9
    Maths: predicted 7, mock 6,target 8
    Biology: predicted 7, mock 6,target 8
    Chemistry: predicted 7, mock 7, target 8
    Physics: predicted 7, mock 5, target 8
    Chinese: predicted A*, mock B, target A*
    Business & Economics predicted A, mock E,target A*
    Religious Studies: predicted 8, mock 2, target 8
    Geography: predicted 7, mock 5,target 8
    German: predicted 7, mock 5, target 8



    As you can see, well in the eyes of some, these mock results were preeeetty awful. You probably saw Economics and laughed at my target, I would. As for RS, i'd rather not talk about it LOL but i owe you a somewhat concise explanation. November mocks were a month before my operation, and my physical self was not up to standard, in many ways. The previous mock exams rendered better results, and I believe that they arent a true representation of a students work, or at least me I guess haha.

    I plan to update this post with photos of my work, revision, memes, updates on the struggles of being a teenager, and even some x rays/ updates on my health!

    I guess i chose to make this post, for myself. To look back on it in August, to see how far I've come, to not let my condition limit myself, and to prove others wrong. But, TO conclude my first GYG post and a somewhat novel of one, here's some uninteresting things about me:

    Spoiler:

    - I hope to study Medicine
    - I used to do like every watersport you can imagine, including windsurfing?
    - I'm really struggling right now to think of more things without making it too personal
    - I love hospitals
    - As part of an independent study a few months ago, i made aspirin (most chem sixth form students probably do too lol sigh)
    - I'm scared everyone will follow what the title says and not read this

    I'm not gonna listen to the title because I feel like being a rebel. Not really. But good luck. I have a feeling that this GYG is going to be really interesting just from that introduction. You seem really motivated and that motivates me.

    nah. I used Google docs. I made it myself because then I can make it more personal and plan in a lot of things.

    It took me like 10 minutes to do it all. I colour coded everything so that added like an extra 3 minutes. Keep in mind that I wrote down everything I needed for my timetable in a notepad in school and then drew it out which might have made it much quicker and easier to make.

    DAY 1 - afternoon - 12pm

    Finished my Blood Brothers analysis! Here’s some pictures as promised, my hands literally feel numb:cry2::cry2:It looks kinda messy but the colours highlighted correspond to different themes, (you’ll see the theme card key) Debating on whether I should continue character analysis or move on to biology.
