I had my first proper exam yesterday. English combined as, 2 and a quarter hours. It didn't go so well. My head is a battleground of "IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER, IT'S JUST AN EXAM" and "oh sigh oh sigh tears oh sigh". My mind in exams just goes completely blank. I could be very very very very clever and still I'd start the exam a blank minded fumbling mess, which I did. (plus nerve bitten lips that started bleeding half way through). So I came home and did some painting and drawing to cheer myself up:
I thought that maybe if I'd used my revision time better, I could have come out feeling happier having done a lot better, my bed was used a lot during my first days of study leave. But it's not even that. I read the book, I knew the key terms it's the stupid exam papers. The examiners have to word the questions in such silly ways to try and catch people out, and it's never the things you're expecting that come up.
(bed appreciation and exam non appreciation moment)
This is my revision technique anyway:
This is a small taste of a revision playlist, and the songs that reoccur in the exams:
My thoughts on exams angstly (is that a word?) scribbled down afterwards:
Anyway, It's not the end of the world that I did badly. OR IF YOU DID. This post is about you!!!
GOODLUCK TO ANYONE WHO HAS EXAMS, NO MATTER WHAT AGE YOU ARE! AND NO MATTER HOW BADLY YOU DO I'M NOT SURE IT REALLY MATTERS BECAUSE EXAMS DO NOT REFLECT ANYTHING ABOUT YOU REALLY APART FROM THE WAY YOU CONFORM TO DUMB QUESTIONS.
And for anyone who is starting a college or new school soon, I have even done some tips for you:
Anyway, exams are disgusting so that's enough about them.
This week I have been really enjoying zine making, and zine reading.
I made a zine for my friend Emma wishing her goodluck with all the exams she's doing, and I can't stop reading the zine Flower exchanged with me.
Isn't it cute!
Fashion wise study leave and exam wear has been SLOB STYLE who wants to turn up to an exam in something fancy? So I've been pulling out cardis and shirts and really nothing special. But to cheer myself up I've been doing little sequin collars on my shirts, and with no effort at all and a much easier way to a cute collar- OLD EARRING STUDS!
so simple and you can swap and switch yay! I hardly ever wear stud earrings and most of mine haven't been used so I'm going to get them out as an excuse
When I was looking for studs I found the above that I'd lost and they brought a smile to my face! Mmm.
LAST THING (I'm aware of how long and dull my posts are). I've listened to the whole of Grimes's album "Visions" and it's very odd and SHE COPIED MY SEQUIN LOOK which has only ended up with my Dad referring to me as "Grimes". Great.
GOODLUCK again with any exams you have, and remember EXAMS SUCK.
