So jealous of those who have wrapped up their GCSEs already.
Hello old friend. It’s been a while. My most sincere apologies for my unannounced departure but I’m afraid that these examinations had taken the best of me. I was in great need of some time in which to recuperate. Unfortunately that time is limited for my work is not done. Not just yet. You see, I still have some subjects to attend to, but soon after it shall be summer and when it comes I shall tell thee of my most marvelous plans.
Getting excited over the new air con control! You can tell just how eventful my life has been recently. Can’t wait to get the last of the May exams done and dusted as I’ve got two weeks to kick back after that thanks to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Cheers Queenie!
5 DOWN. 5 TO GO.
OHHHH! WE’RE HALFWAY THERE! OHHHH! LIVIN’ ON A PRAYER…
How dare you!
How dare you have tell me that I am not putting the effort required into my work. How dare you tell me that I am not meeting standards. How dare you tell me that I am not working hard enough. I am probably one of the hardest workers you will ever come across. When I commit to something I dedicate myself 110%! The reason why everyone has such high expectations of me is because I set the bar that high in the first place, because no matter how well I do I know that there is always room for improvement and because of that I am always striving to do better. I am a perfectionist, nothing can ever be to good, nothing is ever complete and you can never do to well.
If only you could see what my life is like outside of school then you may understand. If you won’t find me on stage, you’ll find me in my room. Even my parents tell me that I don’t have a social life and that I need to go out more. But I don’t because I am forever hungry to do better, to push the bar higher still and in the process my physical limits. For the past two years I have spent every waking moment working. I am not academically gifted. Some kids just got it… I don’t. But I don’t use that as an excuse to slack off in class. I may not complete my notes in class and I may not hand in my coursework on time, but when it comes down to the exams I get my A’s, and if and when I don’t I make sure to take a re-sit even though teachers may advise against it. I don’t settle for second best.
I’m not an A* student despite what everyone might think. I don’t spend endless hours at my desk because I enjoy it, I spend them because I know that they will benefit me in the long run. Sure I may be in the top set for every subject now, but it wasn’t always like that. I still remember I used to be in Set 5 out of 6 in maths (6 being worst) but last year, I took my GCSE’s a year early and even then I was getting C’s in the mocks and my teachers began to doubt me but I still came out with an A because I worked my socks off. I’m not academic, I’m creative. I don’t like letters or numbers, especially together. I despise them. But I make do because I realise how important these years are. I realise that the grades we get it will be with us for the rest of our lives and that our entire future depends on it. And although I will never need to use many of them I still work and I shall continue working until I get what I want. So don’t you ever tell me that I am not putting the effort required into my work. Don’t you ever tell me that I am not meeting standards. Don’t you ever tell me that I am not working hard enough.
