Panic

I was sat at school, and one of my friends said to me, “Hey, did you know —- has already started their GCSE revision” and I said “No” and then they said, “Yeah well they started it last year, I only started mine in the summer holidays” and that’s when it hit me.

The teachers had always said in the assemblies, “Don’t┬áleave your revision to the last minute” But when is the last minute? So I panicked. I thought that I was really behind everyone else and it just made me panic. Therefore making me go out and by about 8 folders and highlighters and promise myself that I will write up all my notes over the weekend.

I have to admit, it was really nice once I had set out all my folders on my shelves and labelled them and also to know that my notes will be written up soon. I know that I still have ‘loads of time’ but trust me, the past 3 years have flown by and I am not letting that happen with my GCSEs.

However, I had not completely comprehended the amount of writing up I had told myself to do over the weekend and add that to my 7 pieces of homework, 2 tests, not knowing if my books are at home and the family coming round, I very much doubt I will accomplish it, BUT as you all will know from my first post, I won’t give it up without a fight. Here come a few late nights. Wish me luck.

The past few weeks have been a bit stressful. I have had drinks flooding my bag, an open evening which I promised to help out with and trying to keep up with my timetable that I set myself last week… but that does lead me on to my next thing.

I managed to complete my timetable/ to do list…. yay (balloons and confetti) Woop Woop. And I am going to tell you what I used. (That’s right, I’m actually going to say something helpful instead of complaining.) An app that I have really enjoyed using is ‘Wunderlist’ There was something so satisfying with making myself goals and ticking them off, and I really recommend it. It helped me so much and I feel happy even though I had a pond in my bag in the middle of the week. ­čÖé

I hope you all had an amazing week

Time

As much as I keep telling myself to get on with things, or do these things this week, I can never get round to doing it. I always seem to be busy and by the time it’s Sunday┬áI am looking back on the week thinking about what I could have done better.

Like for instance, a diet. I had a goal for this year to stay fit and eat healthily but I just can’t stick to it, or even my hobbies that I love to do, I can never seem to find the time to do it. Weeks are flying by and I am scared that I will be the same with my Revision for GCSEs so I need to practice. So far I have tried goals for the week and timetables to follow but there is so much that I want to do that I never seem to be able to do any of it.

At the moment I am trying to write a book, but I have to be in the mood to write and I just never seem to have the time to do it. I’m not really a busy person, most the time it will be just me sat in front of the TV and before I know it, it’s dinner time and I am going to bed. So I need to do something and change this quickly.

This week I am going to try a list of goals, I think this is probably the best way to go about things and also I am going to write my goals on here and tell you next week how it goes. Wish me luck! My goals for this week are:

  • Complete a chapter of a book
  • Take some photos (This is really important for me and I explained why in my last blog post)
  • Practice the Piano for at least 3 hours over the week

Okay, so that’s only 3 goals so I should definitely┬ábe able to complete it for this week. Have any of you struggled with finding time for your hobbies? and if so do you have any advice?
