Sorry guys… I haven’t been posting lately and as you’ve probably guessed it’s because I have been really busy. I performed in my first theatre show 2 weeks ago and it went very well! I had a monologue to do and everything and we got great feedback from the audience. My close friend came on the second night when we were performing the show and he said that he was vey impressed. He said it was like seeing another side of me because I’m usually quite shy in real life. The show really pushed me to my limits and actually made me realise that there was more to me than meets the eye. Yesterday, I was also invited by one of the producers to join a drama workshop they are holding in 2 weeks. I’ve really enjoyed doing these projects and they take my mind away from all the schoolwork I have to do and they’re fun!
I hope you had a great Easter because I was having a great time!☺️I stayed with my mum and brother in Manchester during the Easter holiday, it was great seeing them again. We went all out for Easter, my mum made so much food and we had some of our family members over as well. Even though it was Easter holiday, I was doing a lot of revision because I have my first exam in 6 weeks. I have to start revising especially soon because for 2/3 of my subjects, I’m going to be tested on ALL of last years and this years topics😢I have 3 mock exams next week as well, so I have to be prepared for those. Hopefully after my exams, I will get the chance to post more regularly and start doing more music/TV/Film posts!
I hope you guys have a great weekend!☺️
I’ve been genuinely so busy this week with homework, revision, blah blah blah… but I’ve got some pretty exciting news. On Tuesday I went to my first proper audition in London, I was audition for the main characters sister and I think it went really well! The audition was for a web series about how two people meet and how it’s more than just a coincidence. I haven’t heard anything back from them but I’m sure they’ll contacted me soon. Also, I might be narrating a short animated film which is soo exciting. I’ve still been going to the theatre every Tuesday after school and the acting coach/assistant is pushing us so hard during our sessions. I’ve had so many new opportunities open up for me this month and I’m so greatful.
School has been taking up most of my time because I have my exams in 3 months. I’ve had a lot of revision to do and not much time to blog. I’ve had to make presentations lately for media studies on our case studies for our exams which is tireing and we have more research to conduct. I have another psychology mock in two weeks and I’m going for an A grade again like I got in my mock. I’ve already started revision and I think this paper will be easier than the mock paper. The weather has been great this week however the sunny weather has started to remind me of exams this summer😂 I’ve finally got an offer from Loughborough university meaning that I’ve got all 5 university offers!!🎉
Also, I’ve been watching Naruto and now I’m on episode 157. It’s soo good and I decided to start watching this anime because anyone who is a fan of anime has watched Naruto. It’s just as good as Hunter X Hunter if not better. I can’t wait to finish the whole anime even though I know this isn’t the best time to start an anime. What’s worse is that I haven’t finished watching Yu-Gi-Oh! GX but I’ll finish that after I’ve watched Naruto and Naruto Shippuden.
I hope you guys have been having a great week and I hope you guys have a great weekend!
Finally, I have a bit of a break from school! Although, I have lots of homework to do, a presentation to complete and I need to start preparation for the real exam. I’ve completed my biology homework which took some time and I’ve still got to complete my presentation on Scottish identity for media studies. I don’t really know why I picked Scottish identity because for one of our case studies in media studies we have to explore the identity of a group of people or a place. I’m the only one in my class doing a place but I’ve always found Scotland quite interesting. I’ve got mocks coming up in Easter for all my subjects which is fun🙄 but these exams are really good practice for the real exams in June so their not pointless or unbeneficial.
I finished Harry and Potter and the Deathly Hallows on Saturday and it feels so strange not having anything to read. The books were soo good, if you haven’t read the book, I really advice that you do even if you’ve seen the films. I’m think of rereading all the books or maybe the 3rd, 4th and 6th book because those are my favourites. I probably wont reread then anytime soon because I’m concentrating on studying.
This week has gone pretty slowly in my opinion, but like I said, I’m glad it’s half term and I can have a bit of a rest. Even my head of sixth form said we should have a break because when we come back, there’s going to be a lot of work and revision to do. We have about 13 weeks (excluding holidays) of school before our exams!
I hope you guys have been having a good week and please tell me what you’ve been up to☺️
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…
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☺️
This week has been a little harder to go through mostly because of coursework and some of my peers have been making life hell for me. It turns out that I am more behind than I thought on my critical investigation which is an essay about an tissue or topic in the media. I only have 2 weeks left to complete it and I also have 2 weeks left to hand in a rough cut of my opening sequence to my documentary. I’ve actually nearly finished the opening sequence of the documentary, I just need to find the right music and record the voice over.
I find it really sad how some people try to put you down and degrade you just to make themselves feel better about themselves. They just think they’re better than anyone else and feel like it’s ok to treat people how they want. I don’t know if these people realise that what they say hurts and what they’re doing isn’t actually banter. Why is it that when you’re trying to do work and mind your business they have to come and ruin your day? One boy in my media class, who I never talk to, shouted at me across the class aggressively to do something and said it as if I was a 5 year old, that’s not even it! He turns to his friend and laughs like he’s just proven himself or by making me feel like I can’t do something.
I watched Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them on Sunday and it was brilliant! I’m a huge Harry Potter fan and I think J.K. Rowling is genius. My favourite character is Queenie because she is so nice, caring, compassionate and she has the coolest power of Legilimency! This is when you can not only read people’s mind but also know their past and secrets.
I’m just glad that this week is over, I have no homework to do but I have to do some revision for my mock exams in January. I’ve also got offers from 4 universities now which is great! I hope you guys have been having a better week than I have, please comment below what you’ve been up to!
