    Thankfully it wasn't even a training teacher so I won't be seeing him again. I'm going to try and get some work experience at a hospital and I might try something in finance for a week just to see what it's like. Are you planning on doing any?

    My school doesn't let us do it in year 10 either because most places require you to be 16 but they want us to do at least a week over summer cuz it's extra long so that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to try do multiple to bulk up my CV and really to keep me busy because I don't want this summer to go to waste like all my other summers. What are you thinking of doing?

    Thank you, I'm quite disappointed with it though. Glad to have helped, what volunteering/experience have you already done?

    I did a few weeks at an autistic school(through my school), helped at an autistic club every week for 6 months and have been visiting the hospital weekly with my school for the past 6 months. None of them have been work experience. What experience are you planning to do over summer?

    no idea if i'll do experience or just get a job of some sort i don't know what would be best if i wanted to study psychology, probably just something with people?! experience's pretty hard to find where i live but i definitely need to have a look over the summer

    Wednesday 7th March 2018:

    The Gist: I've decided that as I do tasks I'll add them to the done list instead of writing everything down at 1am after I finish, just so I can get to bed a bit quicker cuz by then it's already quite late. I tend to start my work around 6-7pm which is quite bad because I'm worried that I'm getting complacent:cry:. Example: I have a computing test in a week but don't have any notes for it, I had a physics test today but I didn't revise for it until last night despite having 2 hours of allotted homework to revise. I meant to say yesterday that I found out that I'm not actually in bottom set english but 3rd set :danceboy:(idk how many sets there are). Also I got taken off the Physics Challenge because they overbooked people, so i get to go to my english lesson instead:clap2:. Also can we just admire my self discipline, I had the chance to talk to my crush for the first time in months but stopped myself so I wouldn't get distracted.

    To do:(all due tomorrow)
    Spoiler:

    uhhh no; I kinda got a bit distracted
    I think I’ll wait till next year though as the sixth form I want to go to has lots of connections to stem companies etc that my current school (and I) don’t also hopefully I’ll have figured out what I want to do with my life by then

    Thursday 8th March 2018::banana:HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY:banana:

    The Gist: I handed in the 9 marker in geography, got halfway through my character essay on Brown in Inherit the Wind, got 32/36 in the second part of the biology quiz from the other day and that's about it. I'm in a bit of a pickled because I've waited until 11pm to start my work and I have to do a 2 hour chemistry paper for tomorrow and I'm having a sleepover at my friends tomorrow and Saturday so I was supposed to be productive tonight to make up for tomorrow but that didn't happen. I'm going to try and catch up on Sunday to make up for it because I'm getting set a lot of homework tomorrow.

    To do:
    Spoiler:

    homework/revisonComputing: Finished my chapter 4 notes (30 mins)

    Sunday 11th March 2018: HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

    The Gist: Friday was boring and yesterday I got nothing done, I managed to create my revision timetable and that was it. Today I didn't start until 11pm so now it's 3 am and I have to get up for school in 4 hours. I read somewhere that telling someone you're going to do something gives you the same satisfaction of actually doing it so I'm going to try not to say I'm going to do anything until l've actually done it. I still haven't done a homework due tomorrow that I actually really wanted to do, it was supposed to be a reward for getting all my stuff done but now it's quite late and I obviously have an early start. Revision starts tomorrow. I can just feel that my mental health is going to go to s*** this revision season.

    homeworkGeography: Completed a booklet on water provision in the UK (1 hour)
    homeworkBiology: Answered 4 questions on human influences on the environment (30 mins)
    revisionEnglish:Finished my Macbeth Act 5 notes ( 3 hours)
    homeworkPhysics: Did my double practice paper (1 hour 15 mins)
    Did my triple practice paper(30 mins)
    Marked them (30 mins) (double:71% triple:67%:ashamed2:)
