Organising homework

Hey guys,

I am so sorry I haven’t posted in a long while but you know what it’s like with homework! However it is the half term now and I wanted to talk to you guys about organising your homework if you want some social life to.

  1. Create a ‘to do’ list – organise your day with some work and some time for yourself. I was bought a to do list notepad for Christmas once and it had 3 sections which were ‘really need to do,’ ‘would be good to do,’ and ‘bonus stuff to do’. This helped me to organise my homework and complete it on time.
  2. Set a homework day/night – choose one or two nights after school to get your homework done and leave the other nights free.
  3. Do it when you get it – don’t leave your homework until the night before because that could be stressful and you might forget it! Do it when you get it so that the lesson is fresh in your mind. Trust me it will be easier.

Hope these help you!

Crushes + boyfriends

hi everyone,

so sorry I haven’t posted in a while but I haven’t really had anything to write about until now!

I have recently been talking with my best friend Lor and Star Shaw about boys! Lor and I both have a crush on two or three boys at the same time. I have a crush on two – GP and Papa John. Okay so he isn’t really called Papa John but that is the nickname my classmates and even himself uses. He is part italian so that name kind of stuck. Only Lor will really understand properly.

Anyways, back to the point. PJ was with me for the last two lessons of today because of a group for higher ability students of the year (RS). Him and I are part of that group you see but today was different because he was flirting with me.

PJ has previously admitted that he flirts with everyone but he doesn’t take it across 2 whole hours. At the end of the first lesson of RS, he was one of the last to leave and I was just standing holding the door. He stood next to me, smiled and rested his head on my shoulder. Now he would never do that when just being himself and flirting normally. Before this though, we were kind of flirting you could say but I think it was more on his part than mine. I went along with it because I think I like him back. After lunch was pretty much the same but at the end of the day, he walked with me to the gates and said “see you tomorrow” but he said it so sweetly it could have melted anyones heart.

After sharing this with you guys, I thought I would give you a few tips on how to know if you like someone or if they are flirting with you. So, here goes…

  1. Feelings when around them! Nervousness? Butterflies? Shy? These are just a few feelings you might have but there are other very similar ones. Everyone is different but these are some of the most common feelings.
  2. Their actions around you! If you find them near you often and avoiding eye contact, they might be shy and not quite ready but they are likely to like you. If they are one of those who likes to flirt with everyone and they are different around you, they might like you – only if it is a good different not a bad different obviously. For example, they could walk with you even if you are reluctant to let them!
  3. Speech! If they talk to you and they are trying to find out more about you, there is a good chance they will like you. Also if they are talking sweetly – as in not like they would to a normal friend and not nastily either – it is another sign!

Remember, the boy should make the first move not the girl. This is because if the girl makes the first move, the boy will be reluctant to reject so wait for them to ask you! This is the one main thing I have learnt about relationships in secondary school!

Also make sure you put your best friend first. Lor and me have a little saying I though I would share with you guys… Best friends before boyfriends!

I hope soem of these points help those of you out there wondering if you like someone or if they like you. If anyone has any other thoughts let me know in the comments section below. I would love to hear from you.

Upcoming Exams

Hey everyone,

I have already had 3 panick attacks about my art exam tomorrow and I only started thinking about it properly two weeks ago. Ok it was bad of me to leave it so late but I was having fun over Christmas. It’s unfair for the school to tell us to prepare for art over Christmas because art takes a long time to prepare for especially  when it’s me as I take so much time over my art. The exam is tomorrow and I am worried I will fail because none of my practices have worked.

I get a lot of pressure put on me at exam time, like my parents. My art teacher has even put a lot of pressure on me this year because I have built up a high reputation in art. I am supposed to be very talented but if this exam fails, there will be a lot of doubt and a lack of self confidence appear.

It’s a shame but all I can do now is try and hope for the best.

Thanks to anyone who is reading even if you think me talking to you about this is pointless. I just would like to know if there is anyone out there who feels like this when it comes to exams whether they are practice or not.

Love to you always
