I Couldn'T Think Of What To Call This Entry, So I Called It This.
1st of June. Wow, isn't this year going so quick? It only seems like yesterday where I felt a bit tired and hung-over on New Year's day. Scary shizzle.
So basically, just a quick update. Recently I started with A level exams and all that fun stuff. Cue school giving us what I like to call "scare talks" which basically goes something like this:
If you do not revise you will fail. Fact. If you fail you have no future. Fact. If you have no future you die early and you will have a sad, lonely death. Fact.
Oh, and the Government is cutting funding to unis. Some are only accepting triple A* these days, so revise now! Your life depends on it!!!!!!!1111
Okay, maybe not so much like that. But still, they make it seem like if you do not revise, the forces of hell will be unleashed upon you. My ICT teacher said that 12 hours of revision A DAY was only "satisfactory".
For frickin robots maybe, but meanwhile on Planet Earth, we have something called a 'life'.
It just really frustrates me they have to take that stance. I am comitted to my work, I really I am. I want to succeed in life, but I am not going to do 12 hours of revision A DAY.
I guess they'll say it's the way to get you 'motivated' but I call it something else. Bleedin' annoying.
And I am not going to "plan" when tor revise. Revision is spontaneous for me. I'll revise when I feel like it. We are old enough and grown up enough to know that we need to do revision. But if I have a timetable showing when I should revise for 2 hours, I'll probably do it when I don't want to, I'll be bored out my mind and it won't go in. On the other hand, if I think "Yeah, I might go and do some revision now for a bit" I will take it in.
Anyway, moral of the story. That spontaneous revision payed off. My A levels exams are over and I feel all the ones I took went really well. Without wishing to tempt fate, I feel I'll have some good results when I open that envelop come some day in August on results day.
I feel much more relaxed too. Last summer I was sh*tting myself thinking 'What if I haven't got the results I need?' and I think that came across in the way I acted sometimes. This time, I know that my future is fairly set, it isn't a massive change like GCSE was. Here, as long as you haven't got Fs or Us on every exam, you just carry on as normal.
Good news: I'm not going to have to live in Saudi Arabia, thank goodness. The project my dad was supposed to be involved in didn't come to fruitation, so that's a plus side too.
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to the summer break. I've got some real good stuff coming up and I'm really looking to the British Grand Prix which is in about a month. I'll be there all 3 days again and it'll just be awesome. Expect lots of pictures and stuff when I get back and get time to upload it, sort through it and post it on here. Shouldn't take too long.
So that's it for my random ramblings for another day.
Take care guys.
