A couple of years ago I wrote a post on the importance of aspirations and dreams. Back then, I was in what now feels like the rose tinted world of A-levels. Rose tinted because despite the hard work and heavier timetable, my aspiration back then was to get into a good university. That goal is…Read more Your Dreams, Aspirations and Motivations
So I only have one exam left which I will be completing this Friday and then I can finally embrace the three months of freedom that awaits me. There is an issue however which will be preying on my mind for the next three days and even more if Friday's exam does not go well.…Read more Exam Trouble
In a way, I am envious of owls. People who are like owls I mean. Their brains are wired to work more productively later in the day which means they can pull those things known as all-nighters which are alien to larks like me. I definitely cannot pull an all-nighter as my brain functions best…Read more Are You A Lark Or An Owl?
When revision becomes boring, then you know you have finished. This is what students are taught but I have a problem as what if you become bored too early? My exams are still two weeks away but even a few weeks ago, I was beginning to feel the bore of revision. Not due to some…Read more Boredom Or Laziness?
Oddly enough, I picked my e-book up a few days ago -yes yes I know it doesn't smell the same as a real book but I won it so the student in me dictates I must use this freebie - and completed a James Patterson novel. I've wanted to jump back on to the reading…Read more A Sprinkling Of Life
Does this count as redecorating and revising? Let's see how my mum reacts to this new influx of papers upon my wardrobe doors. While I have been busy today sticking these up (by busy I mean for 10 minutes as the posters were created beforehand,) I have also been chuckling at my little cousin who…Read more Revision Revamps Room
Yes we all know revision is an exhausting chore but there are times when it comes in handy right? I am not talking about that illuminating moment in the exam hall when you suddenly remember that on a sunny Saturday afternoon, you revised the exact question that is now being asked of you but what…Read more Being Sneaky With Revision
Now, since the end of secondary school, I haven't been an active participant in sports but when it comes to exams, I realise the importance of exercise. I am revising, I don't have time to exercise! This is the usual attitude during exam season as everything is pushed back after the barrier of the day…Read more Conquering The Moment When Revision Becomes Revolting
When I hear people declaring that they hadn't revised during the holidays and that their exams are coming up soon, the first thought that enters my head is "why the hell didn't you!" Sorry. Perhaps they had something going on, a family matter or personal issues but those who didn't yet still remained in their…Read more That Time Of Year Again..
Finishing the holidays with a day out!
There's a weird feeling that I have been feeling recently and it is that I need the holidays to end. WHAT? ARE YOU MAD? Well I hope not but allow me to explain. The reason is that as I scribble past paper after past paper, a mound of butchered and pressed trees is slowly being…Read more I Need The Holidays To End. WHAT!
That feeling after a day of productive revision, when your mind feels exercised and a part of you is looking forward to the approaching exams, when the sun still hasn't set but you have completed your tasks for the day and you lie back, relaxed. Unbeatable.
