It’s been a while since I last posted, I know! I’ve really been abandoning the blogging world lately and with no good reason. I feel like posting seriously goes against the ‘I’m dedicated to my revision’ illusion that I’m trying to fool myself in to. I instead spend my time staring at the box of revision books that sits at the end of my bed, throwing them agonising glances and considering when to begin, not good!
Anyway, in my absence I’ve taken part in a tiny amount of shopping so I thought I’d share my recent purchases. I’ve been adding to my slow growing collection of rings and found these two on ASOS. I’m actually really impressed with the quality of them, they don’t leave any nasty marks! While I do love Topshop and Accessorize jewellery the murky green stain it leaves on my index finger isn’t too attractive on the eye and no doubt leaves others questioning the extent of my personal hygiene.
I also had to take a trip to Miss Selfridge to return the shorts I bought a few weeks back, after wearing them just once they began to fray at the bottom. Needless to say I was not impressed and for £34 I couldn’t let it slide so I had to change them. Obviously they didn’t have another pair in the size I wanted because that would be far too easy, oh Miss Selfridges welcome to my list of much disliked things. I had to settle for a pair in grey instead.
Lastly in my collection of pictures is the door that I have been studying for the past month. Today, I finally finished my whole R.E GCSE so I can take down this sea of post it notes. As joyous as this event may seem I’m actually kind of sad about it (yes, I am a social outcast!) because it’s sort of beginning to end a whole five years of my happy little routine, I don’t want to start sixth form!
I’m finding the exam ‘season’ a little more stressful than I thought I would and my confidence is far from helped by being surrounded by some of the most arrogant teachers to walk Hertfordshire’s pavements. Take my additional science teacher for example, yes I’m talking about you Roundy, who insists that a class anything short of A*’s is a complete failure. He then persisted to complain that I, among others in the class, am wasting my time ‘pretending’ to show dedication to my exams before undermining my achievements in announcing that anything less than a grade A is worthless because after all ‘nobody wants a B or C grade student.’ Ermm well Roundy, fuck you. You didn’t even know my name up until a month or so ago so what would you know about how much work I put into my GCSE’s? I’ll have you know that I now miss Coronation Street on a Thursday in place of revision, that, my friend, is true dedication! Furthermore, was it or was it not you who spent a whole 20 minutes last week informing me about the painting in the Pope’s chapel when really you should have been spouting information on the cerebral cortex? Now, I’m not claiming the ability to foretell the future but I highly doubt OCR are going to be questioning me on the Pope’s artistic interests. Perhaps you should assess your teaching ability before lecturing the rest of us. So I’ll take my C/B and be happy with it, apologies if it doesn’t reach your lofty heights!
Rant over! Hope everybody’s exams are going well!
