Hello everyone and welcome to my new blog series! I am in my last year of secondary school (year 11) and I sit my GCSE exams next year. However, I have lots of mock exams leading up to the real ones and I've decided this year that I really need to get my head down and start revising. Everyone has been looking at me like I'm mad, because our exams aren't until next year. Despite that, I'd rather get into the swing of things now than go back to school after Christmas and think, "Oh crap, I've only got a few months left!"
Therefore, I have put together this series to show you guys how I organise my revision sessions and the kind of things I do and use that help me. The things I do may not be for everyone but if you wanted to try out a new technique then give these blog posts a read.
At the end of every blog post, I will leave links to the other posts in this series so you can click on specific ones that you think will help you.
Also, I'm super ill (with tonsillitis) so I've been spending the past couple of days at home. Instead of staying in bed and watching Friends all day, I decided to be a little more productive by doing some revision whilst taking some photographs. Kill two birds with one stone, huh?
Tip One: Getting Started!
detail about what I'm going to do at what time;
day so I can remind myself what homework or revision I should be doing. I usually limit it to two subjects each day otherwise I think my brain would explode! I also planned out a revision timetable so I can include the things I do at school (like at lunch or after school sessions I should go to) as well as revision I can do at home. I colour-code each subject so its easier to
see. For example, I go to maths intervention every morning instead of tutor and I also go afterschool on a Wednesday, so these are coloured a dark pink. I stick this up on my bedroom wall so I don't forget the clubs I should be going to.
sunbeamsjess' Topshop Autumn/Winter Haul - I've been obsessing over her videos recently; they're so entertaining) or I will flick through Glamour magazine and get some inspiration for future blog posts or outfit ideas.
Twitter (another shameless plug) and see what everyone is up to and I also reply to any messages. If you were wondering, I have the iPhone 5C - if anyone would like me to do a What's On My iPhone blog post, I'll be happy to do that, just leave a comment below.
Also, if you notice, I am so boring when it comes to using emoji's - I use the faces and the hearts and that's about it! I really need to branch out and use a wider variety...
Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed this first blog post! Please leave me a comment sharing your opinion as I'm really not sure if people will like this series.
