Chapter 1: Mind The Gap

20th March, 2020. The day school closed to my year group. It was also the day I started to fall apart academically.
31st August, 2020. There are approximately 82 hours until school officially restarts. And I don't feel prepared.

So now, the plan is to cram everything I missed now, and revise later. Easy, right?
I also have the help of some checklists I got from school so everything should be fine.
Catch-up is boring so that's basically it :lol:

Come back next week for Chapter 2!
