Today was the last day I had to finish and render my opening sequence of my documentary for media. I’ve told you guys before that for media studies I’m making an opening sequence to a documentary about how the representation of ethnic minorities in the media affect young people. I’ve finished editing it and I have finally handed it to my teacher and I’m quite glad to say that I’m quite proud of it. I know I said I would show you guys but it’s on one of the school network folders and hopefully I’ll upload it to my blog next week. I’d really like to have you guys opinion on it so, expect an opening sequence to a document on my blog next week!
I’ve had such a good week, I’m nearly haflway through reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and I’m enjoying it very much so far. I was quite a bit annoyed at Harry at the beginning of the book because of the way he treated his friends but I still love Harry☺️ if you were wondering, my favourite character is Hermione because she is hardworking, sometimes insensitive but she has everyone’s best interest at heart. Also, she is very loyal to Harry, who’s your favourite character is the books? I’ve been talking about Harry Potter a lot lately but I love the movies and this is the first time I’m reading the books and I knew I was going to love it!
I’ve got my audition tomorrow!… and I feel pretty relaxed. I haven’t been to this theatre before in London and I hardly know my way around London however, I know the route and in all honesty I’m quite excited. I haven’t been to a proper audition before and this will be a great experience. I know I sound confident now but I know when I get there I will be so nervous but I know that I will be fine haha😂 If you have any advice for me PLEASE TELL ME because it would be great!😂
I hope you guys have been having a great week and please tell me what you’ve been up to!
I’m so glad that my mock exams are over, overall I found them OK and we have to wait until February to get our results back. It’s going to be like how we’d open our results in the real results day such as our grades are going to be in an envelope. I think that people who do Biology are going to our marks back in class however, we are going to get our actual grades in February. The mocks especially Psychology was harder than I thought it would be and AQA (the exam board) are making the exam seven harder than ever before. I’m happy that I don’t have to revise for a bit until my Easter mock exams!
I have finished reading the first 3 Harry Potter books and I’ve enjoyed reading all of them but Pisoner of Azkaban is my favourite, it’s soooo good and I think JK Rowling is a genius!☺️ one thing I’ve noticed is that Prisoner of Azkaban is the most dissimilar to the movies so far but, Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite film as well. I’ve read the first 3 chapters of Godblet of Fire and I like so far. I love the Harry Potter universe and a couple of weeks ago I did the quiz that puts in you in one of the four houses in Hogwarts and I was put in Gryffindor which I’m quite proud of!
It’s hard to imagine that I’ve got only got 5 months left of sixth form until I leave school and go off to uni. I’ve had so many memories at this school…
Welcome, lovely people, to 2017! 2016 has been a crazy year and I hope you have had a good year too. I spent the holidays with my mum and brother and other family members in Manchester. I had a great time, my mum made so much food on Christmas and It was so nice to see them again after 3 months. I spent New Years at church, where we waited like an hour to get the bus and to be honest we were on the verge of going home. I really enjoyed the church service but I was really upset that I had to leave in 2 days. I had a marvelouse time and I can’t wait to see them soon again.
I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been so busy! I’ve had to revise for my mock exams through the holidays and they start next Tuesday. I’ve been doing LOTS of revision each day and most of it was spent doing biology revision because I have a lot of topics to get through for my exam. I’ve also read 2 Harry Potter books while I was with my family which was great. One of my friends in my tutor group today said that she found the exam hard (she did in yesterday) and she is a very smart girl, so I really do hope I do well in the exam on Tuesday.
My audition for a drama theatre in London is in 2 weeks and think I am prepared. By prepared I mean that I’m hoping for the best! I haven’t had much time to practice but I’m still going to go for the experience and just to have fun as well. I hope you guys have had a great start to 2017 and I’ll see you guys next week.
As we all know, Christmas is next Sunday and bloggers have already started creating their Christmas playlists filled with their favourite songs to get you in the Christmassy spirit. I haven’t created a Christmas playlist because everyone’s playlist is pretty much the same to be honest. I prefer all the classic Christmas songs such as All I Want For Christmas and Last Christmas. One of my favourite Christmas songs ever is Merry Christmas by British rock band, Slade. I love UK Christmas songs above all and I just can’t get used to listen to pop artists Christmas songs, it just sounds weird to me lol. Enjoy the Christmas playlist below and have a great week!
I have been bombarded with work this week. I’ve had 3 assessment in 3 days and I’ve got mocks coming up in January. I’ve been given a timetable for my mocks and I have 2 of them on the same day😫. I’ve been given a table of what could come up in my psychology exam and I have to go through 4 AS topics that I did last year. Also, I have to mention that my biology exam is 2HOURS AND 15 MINUTES long. It’s longer than any exam I’ve had at GCSE but for the real biology exam we have more than one paper that are at least 2 hours long. I’m glad that we break up for Christmas holiday on Wednesday and technically I don’t have to come in for periods 1 and 2 because I have a free period. Also, I need to get my secret Santa a present for Wednesday and I have no idea what to them! I’ve usually been quiete bad at finding the right gifts to get people as well lol😂.
Good news! I’ve booked an audition for a theatre in London, they said i don’t have to prepare anything but I should wear suitable clothes to move around. I’m mostly doing this for fun and to gain more confidence in myself. I think it will be a good experience and maybe I could do more in the future. If you have any tips or advice please feel free to comment, it would be really helpful.
Also, my mum and I are going to Manchester on Wednesday. If you remember from my previous posts, I live in my old city so I can finish year 13. It’s going to be great seeing my mum and brother again, I haven’t seen them in about 4 months. I really miss them but I’m trying to really focus on my education this year.
I hope you have been having a great week, please tell me what you’ve been up to☺️
San Junipero is the fourth episode in season 3 of one of the best shows on Netflix, Black Mirror. It’s about two tourists who meet in a town called San Junipero and a lot of things are revealed throughout the episode. I watched this episode of black mirror last month and I was blown away! I love this episode so much and the extended spotify playlist, created by the writer, brings back the best songs from the 80s from some of my favourite musicians such as The Smiths, Belinda Carlisle and Whitney Houston. One of my favourite songs in San Junipero is Fake by Alexander O’Neal. I’ve been obsessed with this song for a while now because it’s so catchy and has a very 80s vibe. I highly recommend that you watch this episode of Black Mirror and check out this great playlist below:
Since I was 13 I’ve always wanted to be a psychologist but it was only until I started doing psychology last year that I decided that I’m particularly interested in forensic psychology. I’ve always thought of myself as having 2 parts: a creative side and a more studious side. I like having a balance of both in my life and hopefully in my future career, that’s why I want to get into other projects even though I’m still focused on becoming a psychologist. I particularly like anything to do media e.g. Filming and I also like graphic design. I would have taken graphics as one of A-levels however graphic design in sixth form is art based. I’m still not sure if I should take a creative route in my life and I’ve always believed that people only think of me as being someone who isn’t very creative.
I love media studies, it’s been my favourite subject since year 9 and it’s the only subject I think I’ve been consistently good at. My teacher watched my opening sequence for my documentary and she was blown away with it which, makes me so happy especially when the deadline is in under 2 weeks. I’ve also been thinking about doing a bit of theatre as well, just for fun.
You may remember from my blog post: The Missing Cord! that I left my iPhone cord at school and I couldn’t find it the next day so I had to buy a new one. Guess what happened yesterday! Yep, I left my phone cord at school! HOWEVER, I walked back to school and luckily I found it plugged in the computer I was using. Thank God!
I hope you have been having a great week and please tell me what you’ve been up to this week!
