Mock Exams

It's the Friday before the mock exams and I am actually pretty relaxed about it all. Perhaps I'm too relaxed. To be honest, mocks don't really matter that much. All I need to do is try my best. There's no need to get all stressed about it. That's for sure. 

I have just got on the school bus after walking out of school with my friends. One of my friends is quite worried about the mocks. Me being nice as usual, assured them that they shouldn't get all worked up about it because it's going to be fine. One of my friends has done a load of revision. Their folder is packed full with practice exams and revision cards. I, on the otherhand, only have a few notes in a tattered notebook. Another of my friends, I don't think has done any revision at all. Which, quite frankly, is a bit worrying but they are one of those people who don't revise but still do really well in exams. And that does sort of annoy me because I have to work hard at something if I want to do well (however sometimes I just manage to ace an exam with no revision). 

This weekend I might do revision but at the same time still have a relaxing weekend. The worst that can happen is that I walk into an exam late, sit in the wrong seat and then realise that I forgot my calculator in a MATHS exam. This did actually happen to me. But I did get a calculator but unfortunately it was a very basic one with the batteries falling out the back. I couldn't do Triginometry, area or most things calculator related for that matter. Lets just say I failed the exam. Next time I will not be late, have the right equipment and I will most of all try my best to do well!!!

New year

Here's to the new year. 2016. 2016?! 2015 flew past in a glimpse before my eyes. The book of 2015 has finished. And, well, although in some ways it could have been better, a lot of great things have happened. 

If the year 2015 were a book that I read, I would think of it as an exciting story with it's ups and downs, key moments and changes. By the end of the 365 pages, I would feel happy because I think that throughout the year, things have only got better and better. Good changes have happened. I have made new friends, I have developed my personality and I think I have become a better person. I have also worked hard to achieve what I want to achieve in the future. I only hope that in 2016, things continue to get better and better.

My resolutions for this year are to keep developing my personality and to find out who I really am. I also plan to continue to work hard and perhaps live life more to the full. Perhaps I am too lazy sometimes, or too unorganized. This could also be changed. Am I being a bit ambitious here? Maybe. Usually, I don't stick to my resolutions but this year I really will try my best. It may not work out like I want but at least I would have tried. Because trying your best is the only thing you can do right?

And my advice to you is to try your best. If you have resolutions you want to achieve then try and stick to them. If they really aren't working out for you then you could make more realistic resolutions and try again with them. Make 2016 a good one. Make it a 365 page story that you feel happy about when you look back on it.

Happy new year everyone. Have a good one.
