I love cooking I used to cook every day for about a year and a half but when I started year 13 I stopped because I'm too busy but I'll start again during the summer!
I love art, literature and films! I really love visiting art galleries in London. I also love books written in or set in the early 20th/late 19th century, especially if it is a detective! I like to watch films from the 50s-early 70s. My favourite director is Ingmar Bergman.



So I hope you enjoy my GYG If you want me to tag you just tell me.

~Thursday 10th January 2019: things aren't going that great~
Hello, welcome to my first post! So let me update you with what's currently going on. Currently, I'm mid mocks and they're going terrible . Truthfully it's my fault, I haven't really revised at all. During Christmas I got ill for about the week so lost out on revision and then it was Christmas and New Years. After that I felt really unmotivated and didn't really do much. I think I'm going to be lucky if I even get all Cs. I think my Japanese went alright but History and RS are definetly lost causes. I'm currently trying to make notes... which I should have done months ago but... anyway, I'm making notes right now even though it's not effective revision because I think they will be more useful in the long run. Ahhhh why have I done this to myself.

Yesterday was also a really unproductive day as I recieved my rejection from Oxford. I was honestly completely expecting but part of me still had hoped. I've mostly recovered from it I think but I don't know if I really have. I kinda want to reapply but I don't know if I will. I guess it depends on my A level grades.

So... I guess this isn't a very inspirational GYG post ^^; but stay tuned! I want to turn this around!

~Friday 11th Janaury 2019: worst exam ever?~
Quick little update on how mocks are going. So I had my philosophy mock today and I honestly kinda gave up a bit. It was an afternoon exam but instead of revising in the morning I read a book. That was not good decision making but I doubt much would have gone in anyway. So unsurprisingly, my exam went terrible. I barely answered the questions and didn't even attempt a third essay because I knew nothing about the topic hence automatically loosing 40 marks . It's my own fault but I'm not going to be looking forward to discussing this exam with my teacher.

I'm the same - it's really hard to force yourself to revise

Always really wanted to learn Japanese properly, jealous :gah:
Don't worry about that philosophy mock, move on and focus on your other mocks, and when you get results back you can use it as a tool to learn what you need to work on :hugs:
