Haha, I have the same feeling about Geography

Yess, practice practice practice! Nothing preps you better for exams than essay questions. Particularly if your 3 subjects are essay based.

19/9/18: Week Two-and-a-half

This blog being late pretty much sums up last week. It felt very unproductive even though I spent a lot of time at my desk, and I easily slip into annoyance at not doing enough, so I work harder/ longer the next day, get less done and the cycle continues.

It's not to do with my work ethic, I don't think- rather my level of focus and sitting at my desk for hours straight with no break isn't good either.

With three impending deadlines on top of schoolwork and revision (Personal Statement, English Coursework and Theory revision) I try not to think about all I have to do, but I think it's this background pressure that causes me to stay half-working for AGES at a time.

ANYWAY, Positives: I had a couple hours of driving practice after school last week, I made a snazzy poster on glaciers and I've read about 120 pages of a book for school.

I'm already looking forward to working better this week, to having better focus and more positives for next week's blog!!

OKAY: Week ? 17/10/18

Don't mistake my GYG absence for lack of school work, I'm actually feeling pretty on top of work at the moment, which may not last ahhh

I revised for and passed my theory test a week ago yay!
A field trip got in the way with schoolwork a bit but I'm all caught up on that work now.
Given in first draft of my personal statement today & I have ideas for what to change next.
Started geography coursework- Need to work on the hypotheses & intro.
Handed in first draft of English coursework, will need to work on that when I get it back.
And I have done a teensy bit of year 13 psych revision- fully covered gender for a common assessment tomorrow.

So, yeah, I'm just waiting to be overwhelmed again
