September Review


Hello Internet!

Other than the book review I uploaded a few days ago, I haven't posted in ages! I'm sorry - I've just been so busy with school! Anyway, instead of making up loads of pointless excuses, I'm just going to get on with the post...

So, September has been a pretty boring month, re-adjusting to the usual, repetitive life of high school. Mostly, it's just been a mix of homework, revision and exams. Sounds fun, doesn't it?

One good thing that happens every September, though, is my birthday. I didn't do much, given that it was on a Monday but it was still a pretty good day. I had my friend stay over the weekend before and I went for a family meal the weekend after. In case you hadn't already noticed, I have a very boring life (I'm not really a party person). I got some great gifts, though!

Other than my birthday, nothing exciting happened. And, other than the constant supply of homework, nothing bad really happened either. There was this one day, though, which really sticks in my mind. To be honest, I think I knew from the moment I woke up that it was going to be a bad day. Do you ever get that feeling or is it just me?

The first thing that happened was when I got into school and realised I'd left my history folder at home. Now, when you have a teacher that is widely known for being strict and you forget your work, you panic. Luckily, the teacher didn't really care, but it definitely didn't set the day to a good start.

First period, I walked into Science and noticed that the teacher had made a seating plan. When I looked at who I was sat with, I was literally on the verge of screaming. I had been in the same class as this guy since age 4, and I can safely say he is most idiotic creature ever to exist (I'm sorry but it's true).

Next lesson was PE. I actually feel nauseous just thinking about it. Basically, the teacher had us running around with a rugby-training bag for an hour. I don't think I have to say any more... 

But the last thing that happened really tipped me off the edge. I'd just got home from school (after walking about 1.5 miles) and I realised, just as I reached the door, that I had left my keys in my bedroom. My mum was at work and wasn't finishing for another hour. Seriously, you have no idea how stupid I felt. After trying to figure out what to do, I decided to walk all the way back to my mum's work and wait for her. This day basically just represents the entire month for me.

However, aside from all of that, there are a few things to look forward to this school year:
- I've gotten to drop loads of subjects (like Geography and RS) so I can concentrate on my favourite lessons.

- I'm taking on a new subject (Sociology) and I'm really enjoying it so far.

-I'm doing the Duke of Edinburgh Award at some point. If you don't know what this is, you've basically got to do 3 months of volunteering, 3 months of physical activity, 3 months of building up skills and then an extra 3 months on one of these sections. You also go on some kind of expedition at the end. For more information, click here to go to the DofE website.

-I'm doing the Crest Award with a friend, which is basically a project which can help us get into a good university.

- I'm going on a History trip to France and Belgium next year, which will be my first time abroad. I'm really excited about that!

So I guess this year isn't going to be so bad...

How's your life going? Do you have school? Is it as stressful and boring as my school life? Please let me know in the comments!

This post has been a bit more chatty than what I first intended, but never mind!
Also, I think I've got some good post ideas for this month, so that should be good.
Thanks for reading

  1. Ugh, that one day sounds horrible. Walking home only to find you're locked out...after a long day of school, that would break me down.

    Sounds like you've got some good things to look forward to, though. Keep your head up!

    1. Yeah, it really was annoying but I guess it'll teach me never to do it again!

      Thank you!
