(Wednesday 8th - Wednesday 16th)
So I attempted to act upon your opinions of taking a day off to relax, so I did so on Saturday and it felt so good
to just let go and relax!
I had some extra work to do in my frees but honestly it was okay cause I did feel a bit more motivated, although I can still be seen slacking off at times
I am currently doing an NCH Essay Competition
and I had no motivation to complete them, but I actually did half of it the other day! Although, I am a little stuck. I’m torn between writing their English and Philosphy prompt.
I’ve attempted them both: my English essay sounds more sophisticated and convincing yet i trail off a bit, and my Phiosophy essay is more interesting to write about yet I’m not happy with how it’s sounding. I think I may continue my philosophy essay, but I’m not sure yet. I have also completed an entry for the Keats-Shelly Association Prize
and I was so proud of myself. The more I read it though, the more I realise the things I could’ve done better. It’s all done and dusted now so I know I shouldn’t worry about it, but I still have the jitters!
In English I am now on our coursework module, and I’ve got to say it’s a bit nerve racking.
It is about Carol Ann Duffy’s
poetry collection ‘The World’s Wife’,
and the essays are worth 15 marks each. You also have to relate it to the rest of the poems in the collection which is really different and a bit difficult to me since it’s so foreign.
I was trying to do some context research, as we should do at A-Level, but I cannot find any juicy details about Duffy or her intentions and influences. If you do English, could you please help me out? I’m seriously freaking out (kinda). :
I received my Religious Studies landmark (assessment) and I got full marks!!
I’m so happy! I did not expect that at all because it was such a hard question, but I’m even more determined now to work harder so I can continue that streak.
Nothing else has really happened, so I’ll have to cut off here. Until next time,
