hi! you probably already know me by now :lol: call me vapordave/dave/david, whatever.
I've just come off a not so good time wellbeing-wise so I thought this would be a good idea.

a bit about me:
I'm currently in Year 12 taking Physics, Maths and Computer Science A-Levels. I'm also trying to self teach Further Maths but I am very behind :eek:

goals for 2022:
- apply to university
- apply to university in america
- learn to drive
- get a job
- get support for my mental health
- write more (hopefully this blog will help)
- be a better forum helper
- try my best to get a revision groove going and get 4A* (pipe dream at this point)

I can't promise any updates after this :lol:

update 1: 2021

I made a failed wellbeing blog last year. Let's see how many goals I achieved:

1: Get started on learning Japanese - Done!! I've started learning kanji properly and it's going well. I haven't properly started on grammar but there are bits and pieces I've picked up
2: Start getting some schoolwork done - none of that happened in lockdown 3 :lol:
3: Get satisfactory GCSE grades - I've touched on this before but I'm slightly upset with them. They're not bad though.
a: Push Maths 6 -> 8 - I got a 7 and resat (results next week!!)
b: Push English Literature 3 -> 7 - I got a 6 but that's still a three grade improvement
c: Push Religious Studies 4 -> 7 - I got a 7
4: Grow out my hair / Learn how to take care of said longer hair - It's definitely longer, though I've had it cut in the last year. I think I'm making progress haircare wise
5: Start saving some money / Be more responsible with money - Nope, it's worse now that I eat lunch outside :lol:
6: Get a job - Unsuccessful
7: Start exercising more often - did not happen though I naturally walk more for college
8: Take Vitamin D every day - that lasted maybe a month
9: Practice mindfulness more often - I forgot about this :lol:
10: Learn some languages for fun! - Japanese is the only one I've given serious thought though I guess it's still for fun

update 1 (idk should i make a schedule):

Things are off to a good start. My attendance so far is 100% (go me!) and things are going smoothly. The workload isn't that bad but I have lots of non-academic things that I've been ignoring I did ask my computer science teacher for a reference for my application to the Sutton Trust US programme and he happily agreed so that's great. He went to MIT so we've talked a lot about applying to university in the US and stuff.

It's also my birthday today which makes me officially one year closer to adulthood. yay?
