Losing My Way- FKJ and Tom Misch
Tuesdays are always weird for me. I only have one lesson- English Lit, and it's finished by 10:30 and then I'm free to go home. Normally I would stay and try to do some extra stuff in the library, but today I thought it would be a good idea to go Christmas shopping... I got home three hours later with nothing to show.
I didn't do anything since I've been back, except from going to the gym. That's okay, because tomorrow is another short one.
In English today we were handed back a timed assessment we did last week. Turns out I got an A, and he photocopied my response, along with two others, to give out to the class, so I was proud of myself for that. We also had our checkpoints (a termly review of grades/ goals/ targets, you know the drill), and I was told I needed to promise to contribute more. I've heard this at every parent's evening I've ever attended. It frustrates me because I work hard, I get good grades, I'm active in group work, and he always picks on me to read stuff out and I'm happy to do that, but some days I just don't want to speak up. Another way I think of it, is that when I write, there are more steps involved.
-I word it out in my head
-I write it down
-And I can edit it.
But when I get picked on to answer a question, I blank and my explainations are rarely coherent- or I struggle to get my point across. And I'm not all that confident.
Apart from that, the checkpoint went well. I discussed with him my application to study English and Film at university next year and he seemed genuinely interested and excited about that.
Tomorrow I only have coaching, so again I'm only in for one period. I'm planning on going in early to do some revision.
I'm going to set myself a few targets, and maybe I'll comment on them the next time I post.
1) Start a book this week.
2) Reduce screen time everyday, even if it's just by a little.
3) List a new product on my Etsy shop.
I hope everything is going well for you guys and for future Sarah! Bye for now.
