♥ Hello and welcome to this cringey blog! ♥
I'm AestheticEnergy, a fairly average Year 11 student; even though it's pretty much the end of 2018, it's about time I start a blog that ideally should've started in September...oh well!
I'm a 15 year old girl with dreams to chase and plans to make! My ultimate goal is to become an award-winning architect- I want to design structures that amaze the world and benefit everyone. That's my goal. And I'm going to track down my journey right here, on my cringey blog, "Once Upon A GCSE"
So what's with the strange blog title? Well, I'm not entirely into fairy tales but hopefully, my journey to the end of my GCSE's will be a happy ending!
Enough about that; let me give you an insight to who I am and what my grades are.
The subjects I take:
My Favourite Subject?
(AQA) English Language and Literature
(AQA) Triple Science
(AQA) Religious Studies
The grades I want for all subjects:
ART! Obviously! I've been doing it since I was, like, an embryo xD (Just Kidding)
As this is only my first blog (EVER!) i'll keep it short, in case you get bored. But i'll try to update this as frequently as possible with stuff like my awesome study techniques, my work spaces, how i'm still alive after multiple failures and a bunch of other stuff!
Thank you, wonderful human, for stumbling upon my first blogpost. Please do it again soon lol ~
♥ AestheticEnergy ♥
At least a Grade 7 for EVERYTHING. Phew, that'll be tricky!

~ Farewell 2018 ~
Well, we're reaching the end of this exhausting year, bombarded with ups and downs. From my experience, I'd say, if we survived 2018, we can definitely take on 2019. These Christmas holidays weren't going to last long anyway, but it seems like the perfect time to set some goals for 2019.
The GCSEs are getting so close...I can almost taste them...and boy, they don't taste pleasant. So, in order to sweeten up out skills to battle these exams, I'm setting some goals. Yup, that's right- Princess Procrastinator, making a list of things to do and acheive. Before I share my scrappy little list, let me share what makes a good goal or aim.
Last term, my teachers recommended using a 'SMART' Goals Criteria, which you can tell, is a criteria made for setting efficient goals. I had tried using it and it honestly helps to pinpoint what you want to do exactly. It helps for long-term and short-term goals, more or less. So here is a version of the criteria I randomly found:
( Please excuse my awfull technical skills, heheh )
This criteria helps reduce the urge to procrastinate when attempting to reach those goals, so I'd recommend using it to
Now onto what MY goals are. It's actually still a rough idea, despite using the criteria, but here it goes:
My goals for 2019 are:
- To reduce the amount of time and energy I spend worrying about things that have happened, or will happen. By doing this, i hope to reach a calmer, less stressed state of mind.
-To be able to form a habit of sticking to a study schedule in order to have a regular routine for revision.
-To cut out distractions before the February holidays, in time for my next mocks and exams ( Like social media, video games, etc)
-Be grateful for the family, education, friends and resources i have and make the most of my today for a peaceful tomorrow.
Thes are just a few rough ideas for what I wish to do next year- Personally, I love this period; getting ready to turn over a new leaf and start fresh in a New Year. Which also means getting fresh new stationery! hehehehh
That's all for today's blogpost- I should be updating again around New Year's Day!
