Hi! Just thought I’d blog and tell you I’m still alive – just I had my first 2 exams yesterday (English Language) and they were awful. I thought Paper 1 was bad, but expected Paper 2 to be better.
The texts we had to write about had very little to do with the questions, and I had to really work to twist things round so I could write about them. I’m so mad because all the work I did, all the vocab. I learned, all the 35+ researchers (+ research and dates) that I spent weeks learning all went to waste. I didn’t get a chance to show what I know, and the most frustrating thing is, all the past questions we did for practice I could answer perfectly, some of which I actually ENJOYED. On top of that, the texts (especially the second one) were really badly written from an English Language point of view, which is totally stupid on the actual exam. It makes the exam board look stupid. Yeah, I know, life’s a bitch.
On top of that, I’m ill. I had a bad headache a couple of days ago, but that’s been replaced with hayfever, an itchy rash on my stomach and a sore throat. I can barely speak. So you can see I wasn’t actually in the right frame of mind to do exams in the first place, which is a shame because I thought the Eng. Lang. ones would be the easiest to do.
Hopefully they will have cleared up by the 7th June (2 English Lit. exams and 1 Geography), and then I just have History exams on the 10th. After that I will be back (and online) as much as possible till the 16th, because I don’t have to go back to college till then. In that time, I’ll be updating constantly and also putting the new layout up. I’ve been answering questions in the ‘Ask Me’ thing, and I’ve spent a couple of mins on Starstruck practically everyday, so I’m still around a bit even if you don’t see me
I’ve got a driving lesson tonight which should be fun, seeing as I can’t talk Last week I managed to drive home (with a LOT of help from Matt), and I managed to annoy a few hundred people lol.
Thanks for all the lovely comments, and I’ll be back soon!!
