Ok, so I’m going to admit something: I have no idea what I’m doing. There.
Hello, I’m Abi :))
(eeeurghhh that was cringy)
I’m creating this blog because I want to achieve something. I don’t define achievement by gaining thousands of subscribers or being sent freebies (although that would be nice), but keeping this up for even a month would be something.
I’m 17, and I’ve just began my A levels.
So. Much. Work.
The one thing people told me before I began my A levels was that the workload would be unreal. ‘It’s only three subjects’, I thought. ‘It can’t be that bad’
So the system has just changed, and we were advised to take three subjects rather than four. Having done reasonably well in my GCSE’s, I ignored this, and took english literature, geography, maths and psychology.
This was a nightmare.
Ohhhh maths. Believe anyone who tells you this; maths A level is a very very big step up from GCSE. Not only is the change in difficulty unimaginable, but the amount of homework was actually impossible to complete. At GCSE, I was comfortably in the top set, but here I was easily at the bottom of the class.
Yeah, before half term I had dropped that.
So here we are: half term.
I’m doing courses that I enjoy, and whilst the work is tough, that’s ok because it’s interesting.
(I’m sure this time next week, on the night before I go back, I’ll be moaning about having left my work to the last minute… but let’s leave that for the moment)
I don’t want to tie this to anything; I’ll discuss the things I’m passionate about. Books, music, school, friends and anything else that feels important.
I really hope there are people who are with me, and want to join me for this foreign experience!
