I hope you're enjoying your Sunday and hopefully you're having a very lazy one like myself (blogging with my record player on spinning some 80's tunes, bliss!).
Anyway I thought the most relevant thing to talk about in my life right now was back to school! I went back on Wednesday and it is my LAST year of school as I've just began year 13 aka the second year of Sixth Form. Pretty daunting to say the least, but my educational journey won't completely end there as Uni is definitely on the agenda! But yeah so far I've gone through a subject change - keeping English Language, Media Studies and Sociology but dropping Psychology in favour of Extended Project - which makes my timetable look a LOT more free as Extended Project is heavily reliant on independent learning.
I'm quite enjoying year 13 mainly down to the fact that I'm feeling far more academically motivated after Uni open days spurring me on. Of course though SCHOOL isn't the most enjoyable of places, I still have that mentality at seventeen years old. It's been great seeing friends on a daily basis again and learning some interesting stuff (and the bloggers' dream of forking out for new stationary!), but my sleeping pattern was SO erratic over the holidays that it's been pretty hard getting back into the routine and I've found myself very withdrawn and just plain tired at the moment. The workload this year is also VERY heavy so that won't exactly be pleasant, but I guess this year is all about keeping my head down and working as much as possible as well as making the most of every day with my current friends before Uni next year.
My brother turned sixteen last month which means he starts college tomorrow! Unlike my linguistic self, he is more of a practical person so college will be the perfect fit for him. He's feeling very nervous right now with the change but I'm sure he'll settle in no time.
What about you guys then? Have any of you gone back to school or Uni? Perhaps that's all behind you now and it's the working years. If so, what was your final year before Uni like? To those who HAVE just gone back, good luck on the impending year and make the most of it so that next year I can be celebrating with you at a brilliant set of grades.
Thanks for reading as always,
