    Tuesday 6th March 2018
    Today I managed to wake up at 4am! I'm really glad I did cos it helped me start off my day very well, and I did 1h 45 mins revision in the morning. On Tuesday, I do 3 hours revision which I managed to complete! I did 20 more mins at lunchtime, 20 mins on the train and 40 mins when I got home. I'm really glad I split up my revision like this, it made me feel as if I'd done no work. Just now I did some fitness exercises for my abs and a few squats. I am really really tired now, I need to sleep so I can get up at 4 again!

    Chem= The lesson was SO boring today- we spent the first 2 hours going through worksheets we did for homework, which was useful but it was very tedious and I kept trying not to fall asleep Also my chem test has been moved to Friday instead of today which I was a bit annoyed about cos I was ready for it but I'm glad I don't have to panic revise now like I usually do. For the last hour in the lesson, we moved on to Chapter 26 on Carbonyl Compounds and started looking at nucleophilic addition. Organic chem is really not my thing, but it's kinda all the same so I hope it's fine! I really can't wait until we finish everything!

    Economics= We spent the first bit of the lesson looking at inflation AGAIN but I guess it has to be done! Then, we moved onto something more interesting and we looked at the Multiplier Effect and the Accelerator Effect. We were also told that our mock is only on Macro, (and mostly this year topics!) because no way do I have enough time in 2 weeks to revise all the content!

    My inspirational quote for today is:
    "If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done"- Bruce Lee

    I hope its going well. If you know the exam board inside out it becomes a game of rat and mouse - you just fetch for the key points the examiner wants to meet and hey presto, full marks

    I envy how happy you seem all the time lmao.
    Still trying to increase how long I can study for, at around 2/2.5 hours a day until I call it quits. Doing 5, or even 4, seems a long way away for me haha.

    I knew you'd think it's crazy Don't worry I won't overwork myself- I've been really lazy up until now and I'm making time to look after my physical and mental health so I'll be fine And I'm glad your organic chem test went well!

    Really why do you think I seem happy all the time? Well I don't do 4/5 hours everyday! When I have full days at college (2 days a week) I only do 3 hours Are you doing A levels?
