Speaking Exams

Exam time is upon us, and I am dreading it. I am writing this blog post on the Sunday before we return back to school, and I am not excited.

My first exam was today, a d it is a speaking exam, for which I have to work in a group. This means that if one of us mess it up, the we pretty much all lose.

There are two things I hate about this. The first is that I have to rely on other people to pull their weight in order for me to get the grade that I want. I don't like this because maybe they won't pull their weight. Maybe I'll do all of my work and know all of what I need to, and the others won't have a clue.

The second is that maybe they will work really really hard, and I won't have done enough, even though I have tried to learn what I need to know, and then I'll be the reason that they don't get the grades that they won't. And I'd be really gutted.

So Im just hoping I got the mark I wanted

My Youtube

So as a few of you know I have got a YouTube channel and I was just wondering if people have an opinion on me posting some music on my channel.

You all know that I have a massive interest in music if you have read my blog, but I have written a song and I would really like to share it with you.

Please let me know either in the comments of this post, on twitter @_Not_typical_, or via email , I would really like to know whether people want to hear it.

Why don't I blog about make-up

So every other blog I read has some element of beauty or fashion. I decided when I started out my blog that that was not what I wanted my blog to be about. I have told the story of how I started my blog before and I started because 2 of my friends had blogs and I thought I would give it try. But when it came to deciding what my blog was about, that was where mine was going to be different.

I don't blog about make-up because I don't wear make-up. I would rather sleep in bed on a weekday until 7:15 than get up at 6:30. I would rather spend my money on a decent Chinese, than spend it on a £32 eye shadow collection.

I did try wearing make up once, and I wasn't fussed. My face felt too heavy. The only time I ever wear make-up now is if I am going somewhere fancy; and even then it's only mascara.

Anyone who has viewed my YouTube channel knows what I look like, and you have probably made your opinion on whether or not I am pretty or not. That's me with no make up on. I don't get many spots, and I'm a bit of a nerd and I just don't run away from it. I don't think I am particularly pretty, but I'm not ashamed to show what I really look like;

and neither should any of you.

No Screens

In this day and age with all of this up-and-coming technology, we are always being told to look up from our screens and actually experience life. To stop filming concerts and start watching them.

So, the other day, there was a solar eclipse. Now, it happened during the time when I was in school. This meant that your teacher had to take you out of class to see this solar eclipse. Now every opther class in our year group went out to see it.

Except for the geography classes.

Our geography teacher decided instead to put up a live stream of the eclipse on the whiteboard. We were watching something that was going on outside, that we could have seen for ourselves, on a screen in our geography classes.

Stop telling us to get off our screens, when you put them in front of our face to view a natural event that is happening on our doorstep.

Views of A-Level Pre A-Level

So this post is going to be a 2-part post. This is the first half which is going to talk about my view of A-Levels while doing GCSE's.

In Year 6, I was told that going to high school was going to be a massive jump in how difficult things were.
But for me it wasn't.

We were told in Year 9 that the jump from Key Stage 3 to GCSE's was going to  be a massive jump. And for me it wasn't.

And now in Year 11, we have been told that the jump form GCSE to A level is massive.
But should I believe them?

For example, I have been told that maths A-level is hard. However, I was told that maths GCSE was difficult, and yet I'm not finding it difficult. So will I find A-level hard.

I'm trying my best to think that yes, it is going to be difficult, but I guess that in September I'll know and I can tell you all what I find out.
