my way through the mishaps: a year 11 gyg Watch
04092019 - an introduction
Good morning homosapiens!!
*did you know that homosappiens is latin for wise man??
I’ve been putting this off for a while now (this first post) mainly cos I don’t want to think that summer’s over yet . Anyways, this is just an update as my summer is coming to an end.
This summer has been filled with me having more fun than I anticipated, going out with friends, making new friendand going on adventures all over the country (i.e. england), etc.
And then there’s the fact that that I’m yet to do my summer homework. i’ve got a few more days so hopefully I kind get something done . what do i need to get done you may ask, well:
1) further maths homework (i have 85 pages left and 4 days to finish)
2) my history essay on civil rights in the USA
3) catch up on all the history that was skipped in class
4) finish reading Macbeth
5) learn all the charges of the ions in chemistry
6) and some other stuff that i can't remember...
I feel like going back to school there is going to be a new vibe… i.e. it’ll be weird, a lot of people have left and I’ve only talked to like two people since school ended… and there’s the fact we’re in year 11 … that feels so weird.
I’m going back to school kind of lost this year, no timetable, no class list, nothing… so I guess the first day back will be “fun” read chaotic , hopefully by then I’ll be motivated to study because I know my teachers are going to hit me with tests by week 2
I don’t really have much to say today but hopefully when I update again I’ll have done something productive to update you guys on!
This was an impromptu post because I wanted to make an update, but I promise that there will be some awesome things coming soon
I started today.
i hope so too
how was the first day?
after a year of scrolling read stalking through hundreds of gyg's, i've decided to make my own
so yeah, my aim for this year is to #strivetobehappy *cringe, I know*
well, last year kinda sucked and I realised that people who I thought were there for me really weren't and life just generally sucked
this year's gonna be better though because i'm striving to be happy and i'm going to put myself first does that sound selfish?

edexcel igcse english language
edexcel igcse physics
edexcel igcse chemistry
edexcel igcse biology
edexcel igcse ict
edexcel igcse french
edexcel gcse rs

ict - 7

well, i'm leaving my school for sure and i'll be going to sixth form.
what i'll be doing after?
i'm thinking about maths, further maths, biology, chemistry, economics and maybe physics
after sixth form, i'm pretty sure i want to do medicine but i'm not 100% so i want to keep my options open
i might also take a gap year… i don’t know
well, i play the piano up to grade 7 and the clarinet till grade 5 but i’m not going to take any more exams – gcses.
erm… i used to swim competitively but i stopped that too, i really wasn’t going anywhere with that one.
i go riding once in a while (on horses)
outside of school I’m normally on Netflix or youtube or TSR or I’m reading.
oh! and im headgirl at school.
these are coming soon
if you are interested in following my gyg and want to be tagged just say so. also, feel free to post your own gyg's i'd love to read them
disclaimer: the aim of this gyg is not to come and boast about my grades (or lack of them *ahem french*), so if i come across like that please tell me
So my summer is now actually over and school starts tomorrow .
I just found out that this is the year that my school decided to change some rules:
1) Year 7 and 11 start on Monday and everyone else starts on Tuesday
2) School is an hour longer every Tuesday
3) The rest will be found out tomorrow...
So remember that to do list from my last post? Yeah, none of that was done . But it's fine I'll get round to it sometime this week .
Anyways I packed my bag tonight and got the cutest hand sanitizers.
I still don't have my timetable or my class list so I don't know who my form tutors are or anything. But there are two new students, which is weird because - year 11. But it's alright. I get to take them around tomorrow so that'll be fun.
All I've got to do now is write a speech that I have to give tomorrow... which I was told about this afternoon, which is like totally awesome
my school is sooo last minute.
If you actually read all of that waffle g'night!
