Fasting is defined as ‘abstaining from all or some kinds of food or drink, especially as a religious observance’. This week I’ve been fasting everyday until 3pm and praying because my Church is going to a programme on Sunday where Pastor Chris (the president of our whole ministry) will be preaching and doing communion. This is my first time fasting more than two days in a row and I found it easier than I expected. I don’t know why, but I’ve always thought fasting would be REALLY exhausting and you’d be on the verge of death by the end of the day, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Yes, it can be hard because you’re tempted to eat or drink something however, it gets easier as you keep on doing it. It’s very important to pray when fasting, ideally every 2 hours, because if you don’t you’re basically on a hunger strike.
During this week I have done a lot of studying for my last biology exam which is on Tuesday and I’ve been catching up on TV shows e.g. Hunter x Hunter. If you haven’t watched that anime then I highly recommend that you do because it’s awesome, shoutout to Canary. If you watch Hunter x Hunter you’ll understand 😉 I can’t wait for my last exam to be over because we’ve been put on a lot of pressure from the teachers to do well in our A-levels. This is mainly because we had the greatest GCSE results in year 11 ever in our school and they expect the same for our AS exams. Also, the fact that most subjects have their exams all at the end Year 13 puts more stress on us to do even better next year.
This week I got the amazing opportunity to put my content on My Trending Stories so please check out my articles on the website and check out other awesome bloggers!
I’ve done 6 out I the 7 AS exams I have to do this year and my last exam is in two weeks! On Tuesday, I had my psychology paper 2 exam which was very similar to paper 1 in the fact that it was neither easy or very hard, but it went OK. Psychology is one of the subjects I want to do really well in because I want to study psychology in university and then become a forensic psychologist, which deals with prisoners and crimes. I thought the 12 marker in my paper 2 exam went much better than the two 12 markers I had to do for the paper 1 exam so I’m quite happy about that.
Yesterday, I had my biology breadth exam paper which is basically tick boxes and short answer questions for those who don’t do AS biology. I must say, it went better than I thought even though OCR (the exam board) tried to add in some weird questions. You’d probably think that an exam made up of tick boxes and short answer questions would be pretty easy but there are always questions that are about tiny details that no one would have thought to revise e.g. What is the length of a mitochondria? 0.2nm, 0.8nm, 1.2nm or 0.02nm. Like, who would have bothered to remember that? Also, I can’t believe I put 1.6 million as an answer to the length of DNA. After the exam, I was discussing answers with one of my friends and I told her I put 1.6 million for that question and she looked at me as if I was crazy. I think she got 0.7 or something. LOL. Overall, it wasn’t a bad exam and I’m glad that the exam is over because I usually do worse in my biology breadth exam paper. On the 7th June, I have my second biology paper which is long answer questions.
However, half term in next week so I’m planning on going over all the topics I’ve done for biology so I can get a better mark and hopefully that pushes my grade up overall. I’m also going to be taking a break from revision, since that’s all I’ve done these last few weeks, and catch up on my favourite TV shows and anime. I’m currently watching Sailor Moon Sailor Stars and I’m 30 episodes into Hunter x Hunter!
Tell me what you’ve been up to this week and how your exams have been going!
