    Hii
    As the title says, I'm an introvert and I'm currently in Year 11 preparing for my GCSEs.
    I'm really not very good at introductions so I'll just move on to the important stuff:

    After GCSEs:
    Spoiler:
    Show

    I'm going to sixth form to study A level Biology, A level Chemistry and A level Maths. I'll also be doing an EPQ on something to do with Physics, and I'm hoping to join the Science Club and the Maths Academy. After that I'm not entirely sure - but it'll be something to do with Science.


    Random Stuff About Me:
    Spoiler:
    Show

    - I don't really talk that much. I mean, I'll answer the register/speak to my friends if they ask me something/ask my mum about her day, but I much prefer thinking to speaking.
    - Groups of people make me uncomfortable. I'm not sure why, but they just do. I prefer to spend my time with my friends or alone.
    - I only have a few friends but I don't mind because they're amazing.
    - I really enjoy science, maths, reading, listening to music and sport. I also like studying which I guess makes me weird.
    - I'm 16 but I look like a 12 year old. I'm just under 5'4" but I'm skinny and look a lot younger than I am. Once when I was 14 the shop person at the till wouldn't let me buy a DVD with a '12' rating which was annoying and embarrassing.
    - I'm extremely non-girly: I've never worn a dress/skirt or make-up/nail varnish etc. I'd much rather watch a game of football than go shopping.
    - I've memorised pi up to 79 digits.
    - I used to be scared of cats.


    I plan to update this fairly regularly, so feel free to watch
