little bit about me:

β€’

i'm currently a student in y13

β€’

studying biology, chemistry and english lit lang (all wjec)

β€’

i applied for medicine for 2024 entry and am a cardiff med offer holder (!)

β€’

in my spare time, i like to boulder and read

β€’

i have a part-time job in a supermarket

β€’

i LOVE to procrastinate



my goals:

β€’

achieve at least AAA (but aiming for A*A*A with the A in chem)

β€’

update here every other day

β€’

try to actually have a balance between revision and self-care

β€’

thank you! i’m planning on living in accommodation (definitely for the first year) as i live about an hour away from cardiff and don’t want to commute every day haha. i also want the experience of living independently - plus i feel a big part of the typical uni experience is living away, at least for me :smile:
today's to-do: 07/04/2024

β€’

try to finish lear homework (it's tediousss)

β€’

review biology flashcards

β€’

inorganic notes

starting a bit later today as i had work. am honestly exhausted so wanted to do slightly mindless tasks today. but i'm equipped with coffee so we'll see if that helps wake me up! β˜•οΈ
update: that lear homework took YEARS so was the only thing i managed to do today. not gonna be too hard on myself though - work really took it out of me!!

Your blog name is so creative 🀭 congratulations on your med offer! i love your subject combo, why did you go for English Lit? I'm having some difficulty with choosing which subject i'll drop ☹️

awh thank youu! i wanted to have a nice combination of sciences and humanities - i really enjoyed both throughout my gcses so my initial subject combination was bio, chem, lit lang and french! i knew i needed to drop one to focus on the others and ultimately decided on french as i was putting the same amount of work into it as the other three combined. i've been finding english quite chill and just generally enjoyable (and tbh i quite like writing essays haha) - and easier than chem and bio. what subjects are you doing? 😊

Heyoo!!! I'm only a little Y12 student, but I also take biology and chemistry!! How are you fining them so far? I'm extremely excited to see all your improvements and wish you all the best for the upcoming months before you DEFINITELY get into Cardiff! I'll also hold you accountable in case you start procrastinating... 😈 but seriously very nice to meet you and am looking forward to hearing about your academic journey!!

hii! i'm really enjoying biology! i've been finding the content really interesting! chem has been quite a bit more difficult to wrap my head around - i really love organic (hate that inorganic is soooo maths based) but there are so many reactions to learn it's ridiculous. 🀦*♀️
thank youu! 😊
