Hiya and welcome to gyg <3
Hopefully you get those grades you need πŸ™‚

I took spanish from year 3 till year 11 yet still somehow managed to scape a grade 5. Granted I never enjoyed learning it, probably cause it was forced on me😭, but well done you for loving it and wanting to take it further.

Thank you @erin11 ml

Lovely to see another languages-based GYG! :h:
im intrigued by your French IRP topic, sounds so interesting !!!
hello so uh !!! not the best update lol

day 1/day 2 cramps destroy me !! ive suspected i've had endometriosis for the past year. i did a bunch of research into it (still need to get a gp) but i think i've got a mild form of endo / or one of the early stages (or some sort of fibroid/ovary problem since there is family history) of at least something because uh . last time i checked, my uterus is not in my ankles and it's not normal to have pain there !!!!!!!!!

ANYWAAAAYS !!! i did manage to get the research down from the article ab the german occupation. i was putting that off for ages because the article was HUGE but . theres only like a few bits i needed from it. it wasn't wasted time at all, just . one of those tasks you don't realise how easy it is once you actually do it.

IM SEEING YOUR REPLIES !! IM NOT IGNORING YOU ON PURPOSE I JUST !! LITERALYL HAVE NO ENERGY RN !!! but i will get to you all asap

but yeah french IRP progress . i just gotta slim down bits of my research, translate it all, get my intro down, start learning my intro after my spanish exam and start learning facts and stuff.

i think for this evening, i'm gonna do what i need to do to prepare for revision in college tmr, the easy stuff for the spanish IRP.

i'll update later with what i manage to get done !!!!

I wish I had advice to give you about your suspected endometriosis, but it isn't something I'm very familiar with. I went to the GP about suspected PMDD (a different menstrual disorder) and it was difficult as they immediately put me on the pill which I had an awful reaction to. I guess the only thing is to fight for what you believe, and don't take their no until you are satisfied that you have sufficient answers.

"Last time I checked, my uterus is not in my ankles" 😭🀣 that made me laugh! Hope you get it all sorted out soon it sounds super rough, and make sure you're looking after yourself before replying it's ok we can wait!!!
okay so it is the end of the day !!! since my last reply i have dooooone:

-typing out the maya vocab in english to revise for tomorrow, going to print it out on the college printers because they can do double sided
-typed out my intro !! i have a voice recording of it that i'm gonna listen to a couple of times i think

i'm gonna organise my bag and call it a night i think .

-period 4 and maybe 5???: FREE, my friend who also does spanish is free as well so we r gonna do a bunch of revision !!
THIS WILL INCLUDE !!!
intro practice, summary sheets, vocab testing, irp question testing
