first little update and uhh i’m rating this day a 3/10 in terms of how much i did vs how much i wanted to get done - i procrastinated quite a lot and maybe that’s because my tasks weren’t specific enough, i felt overwhelmed by what i had to do and ended up not doing much. i have a maths test on monday so i’ve been focusing on that but i’ve also been neglecting my other subjects so hopefully i can clearly state what i need to get done and just grind tomorrow (:

Welcome to GYG! Procrastination can be soooo hard to overcome, but it sounds like you at least have an idea of what went wrong. I find I have to break my goals down into really achievable and measurable tasks if I want to get anything done. Good luck with your maths test, let us know how it goes!

bit of a slow start to the day but overall quite happy with the progress i’ve made, rating today a 7/10 ! i hope to get back to routine tomorrow and wake up at 7 to revise some more maths and chemistry, ready for my tests on monday

You clearly needed a rest and both tests still challenged your brain even if it wasn’t necessarily revision!

everyone needs a little break here and then so it’s okay 😀 hope you got the restful break you needed, cause two tests are definitely tiring!!

apologies, i haven’t updated in a while but i was busy with apprenticeships and exams, i ended up getting 92% in my maths and 86% in physics (i flopped chemistry) but anyway, i was working on a presentation for a final stage interview which was today and i also had another interview today (both for apprenticeships) so yeah, hopefully will be getting back on track now since i have even more exams coming up, because of the interviews, i didn’t manage to do much, only a bit of physics and that was it
