    What about an extensive hobby?

    But what
    I am hopefully going to be going out a lot next week and forcing my friends to buy alcohol so I can learn how to mix drinks before my 18th birthday lol because after reading a thread on here about sweet alcoholic drinks, I have become obsessed with the idea of mixing drinks :p:

    I might learn the dance from Michael Jackson's Beat It video, that would be cool

    It's easier to push your body clock forwards than back. So best way to get back to normal sleeping pattern is to sleep later and later until eventually you are sleeping at normal times.
    I thought I'd heard that somewhere. Thanks for the tip.

    A2ers can get them from 10:00 at school, ASers are a couple of hours later. But I'm going to make an effort to go in early so I don't have to walk past everyone when they've already got their results, because people tend to get swarmed when they walk in late and that might just provoke a full-scale meltdown in my case!

    I tried that about a week ago. As you can tell, it didn't work.
    At least it's only two weeks now? Albeit the longest two weeks of our young lives, but still only two weeks?
    lol, i remember when i was doing exams, mine being all within 12 days of each other seemed like such a short amount of time, but now its just dragging sooooo much

    I hate UCAS. I hate this wait. I hate that it takes apparently 2 months to mark / moderate our papers. I hate that we still have 13 days, 6 hours and 29 minutes (probably) until Track un-freezes. I hate this!!!!!!


    I think I'm going insane

    I think there's about 6 million people taking A levels, that's 18 million subjects thats atleast 36 million papers if all subjects have one coursework module, so lets call it 45 million papers to mark. Also the fact that they need to mark new spec and old spec this year, hectic or what?
