*Emerges from the depths of revision*
It's coming. I can feel it. It's the quiet before the storm. Exams. Exams. Exaaaaaaaaams. GCSEs, that is. The easiest exams of any that I'll do in the future. They may be the easiest, but they are the most exams I'll ever have to sit at once. 12 exams. Spread just over one month. Ranging from 45 minutes to 2 hours long. Luckily they're all quite evenly spaced out. (EXCEPT FOR PHYSICS AND ENGLISH LIT ON THE SAME DAY WHO WAS THE IDIOT WHO SCHEDULED THAT!111!!!!1!! A friend of mine is re-sitting another of his Physics exams, so on 24th of May he will do his Physics 3 exam, followed by his Physics 2 exam and then in the afternoon he has English Lit. Another friend of mine has his birthday on that day. HAPPY 16TH BIRTHDAY JAMES LET'S GO OUT AND PART-oh.) Also, whoever said that they're getting easier ought to sit a Geography Problem Solving or English Literature paper. (I really don't want to rant. If you do want to read me letting off some steam have a look at my last post.)
It's 16 days until my first exam, which is French. The amount of times I look at the calendar during the day and have conversations with myself which go along the lines of "Yeah, you'll be fine Meg. OMG WAIT WHAT IT'S MAY ALREADY. No it's not. Chill out. OMG WAIT I HAVE A WELSH EXAM! WHY DO I ALSO FORGET ABOUT THAT EXAM?!?! SORRY BIG BANG THEORY BUT I'M PUTTING S4C ON!!!! WAIT WHERE'S THE SUBTITLES BUTTON ON MY REMOTE?!?!?!?! NOW I'M GOING TO FAIL MY WELSH EXAM!!!!!!!!!! Oh yeah, BBC Bitesize."
My emotions are uncontrollable at the moment. Not to mention my health. I couldn't go on a Duke Of Edinburgh practice walk today because I'm ill. I can't afford to be ill. I need to be healthy. Therefore I need to go outside to replenish my brain with new oxygen. I need to go out with my friends. But I can't. Because that would mean losing vital hours of revision. So I have a new friend, who I like to catch up with during revision breaks. Everyone, meet my new BFFL - Tumblr. Until my exams are over, my time will only consist of revision, looking at pictures of One Direction on Tumblr and sleeping. It's unhealthy, but it's only for a short time as it's now less than two months until my summer begins. I have over two months off this year. HA. There will be plenty of time to breathe fresh air then and talk to people face-to-face and not just through a computer screen. That will be very nice.
On Friday, I am leaving school. It's my last official day in school. Then we break for study leave. I have five days left. That's it. No more school. No more school uniform. No more teachers. I'm finding it hard to get my head around. CALM DOWN PEOPLE, I am going to college in September. But why can't my school just have a sixth form so I can stay for another two years? I love it there. Sad face. It's not all bad though. We'll be flooding the school hall with our tears and then will be back in school the next week for revision sessions. Lolz.
Just before I go, I think it's important that I should mention this. A teacher from my school passed away this week. She had been battling cancer. She was only in school a couple of weeks ago, with as strong a front as ever. In five years, I have never seen the school corridors so quiet as they have been since her death was announced. She was the best and will be missed by everyone.
RIP Miss Amanda Hodson. xxx
