I know it seems like i’ve abandoned this blog, but i really haven’t. I’ve been drafting a lot of “serious” ( lets use that term very loosely) posts. So be prepared for a crapload of seriousness coming up. I’ve also been very busy with Year 10 and all the anxiety that comes with it. Oh yeah I got triple science and i’m so happy. I know this may seem like i’m over exaggerating, but for some stupid arse reason the government (or whoever) decided it would be a good idea to make science GCSE harder. Like it isn’t impossible already. My school, who refused to let this tarnish their reputation, thought it would be better for only 1/3 of the year to do triple science. Now this may seem easy, but we have 180 pupils in our year and since I go to a grammar school almost all of them have a higher IQ than Einstein. Anyways i’m just really happy I managed to slip through the cracks somehow.
On a different point I finally seem to be getting the hang of Latin. I mean i’m kinda decent at it and i actually answer question instead of freezing up and staring blankly at my teacher. I’ve also joined some extra-curricular clubs. I’ve made the swim team (Yeah!!). I somehow was persuaded to join debate club even though i hate debating infront of others (i prefer arguing in private), i’ve rejoined after school badminton (so i don’t relapse into my couch potato days) and i’ve become a Oxform Youth Ambassador. If i going to be completely honest i didn’t really know what that was at first i just wanted something on my personal statement at the end of the year, but it’s actually really interesting. Its all about taking action and raising our voices about the problem we face today…i think. This is the website if anyone is interested: http://www.oxfam.org.uk/get-involved/opportunities-for-young-people/youth-ambassadors
Although things in my academic life may be going well things just seem to be awkward with my friends. After summer we never really hang out with each other outside of school. Even in school I barely have an subjects with them, which although does help me to create more friendships with other people, i feel as if we may be drifting apart. I really don’t want that to happen. I’ve known my “squad” since year 7 and we’ve stood by each other through a lot of stuff and i don’t want this to be our breaking point.
Wow that was sappy af anyways moving on hows life for you guys. Whats going on in your life? I recently watched Bridge to Terabithia again and it made my cry like hell (When Leslie died tho). Its so weird seeing Josh Hutcherson as a little fetus before his days as Peeta in Hunger Games. On a completely different subject… I’ve always really been into my soaps, but now its a tradition for me and my sister to sit down at 7pm and watch Hollyoaks (Jade and Alfie are like my otp btw) on Channel 4 and Eastenders at 8 with our cups of tea. Its kind like a bonding session. Like most other sisters we don’t really get on unless we’re bitching about someone then we’re like a house on fire. However she’s going to university next year and i don’t really know who to watch these soaps with after that, but at least i get her room lol. This is such a unorganized post and I probably won’t even edit it because it’s almost 11pm and i still have to do my maths homework. Stop judging me I work best under pressure and I leave things to last minute. So i guess bye :).
