wow okay so i just found this and i haven't been on this website in so many years. it just restored a draft that was from november 2013 and i can't believe that was the last time i actually checked here. it's quite strange and yet oddly enlightening reading my old entries and seeing what used to bother me and what issues plagued me a few years ago (mostly it seems to be centred around exams, funny how that hasn't changed). but it's...nice? strange? to think about the people that have come into my life since then - people who i didn't even know existed before this year, for example, and yet they've become some of my closest friends. or people who i've known for years but never really connected with, and yet suddenly i've never been more comfortable with anyone else. i've definitely had a year of first times for things, and i can't say i regret any of it. it's all been enlightening and definitely a learning curve for me. i'm still trying to figure myself out and what i want to do with my life but honestly i don't think i'll ever fully know. i guess that's just how life goes. right now i just plan to try and enjoy it and not worry myself with small things that honestly won't matter in a few years time. ah well. it's just nice to have somewhere to write things down again without worrying about who will see it and what people will think.

I think when NaNoWriMo comes around, if the idea I have now actually forms correctly, I might make a sims story while I'm doing it that can be updated every few days in November as I write, just to make it more fun. We'll see.

Where to start.
Well first I got my results. I'm still trying to make sense of them, but I got a Distinction in ICT, which is A/A*. Then I got an A in History overall, although I think I got two A*s in something to do with it. I can't understand it properly because it seems to be telling me my marks have gone up when they haven't. Then in maths I got a B which I am kinda disappointed with, so I'm resitting that. Don't want to but I do at the same time, so oh well.
Meanwhile, updated version of my 100 books thing:

1. House Rules - Jodi Picoult
2. Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
3. Girl Who Played With Fire - Stieg Larsson
4. Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins
5. Girls in Love - Jacqueline Wilson
6. Girls Under Pressure - Jacqueline Wilson
7. Girls Out Late - Jacqueline Wilson
8. Girls In Tears - Jacqueline Wilson
9. When God Was A Rabbit - Sarah Winman
10. The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest - Stieg Larsson
11. The Luxe - Anna Godbersen
12. Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins
13. The Finker Question - Howard Jacobson
14. Play Dead - Harlan Coben
15. Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck
16. The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman
17. Coraline - Neil Gaiman

Most likely going to read Lord of the Flies by William Golding next.

I've also had ideas for my own story. Will probably use it for NaNoWriMo and for a sims story. Otherwise I'll rely on my back up plan.

I really need to start writing again. I don't think I've written anything in ages. Nor have I read anything in a long time. I was reading The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson but I didn't get very far with it before homework and life in general took over. I've been so tired lately that I can never bring myself to read before bed. Hopefully after tomorrow though I can start catching up on some sleep!
Most of my life has been dedicated to platinuming games on the playstation 3 also. So close with some of them, it will be such a relief when I do finish it.

It's Sports Day at school tomorrow and I'm involved in two running races, I believe. I hope I do OK at them. Oh well if I don't, at least I've participated. It's always fun though to sit there and the general atmosphere of the place is great.

I'll probably write again sometime soon. I write such boring stuff but oh well.

Today was so embarrassing.
It was our last assembly of the year, so they were dishing out awards for various things. I got around eight, mainly for stuff like attendance and getting good grades and progress. I realised I'd been given student of the year, for my year group in my form. So I was like "Oh okay" and then they started putting up the lists of nominations on the powerpoint in front of everyone. Then they said they'd picked two people out of each year to be students of the year. They then start putting up pictures of the winners and next thing I know my photo comes up. I think I died inside. It's like my worst ever school photo and I'd avoided it being seen all year and then two days before school is over they show it. My friends were laughing so much. Thankfully no one else seemed to make fun of me. Ugh god.
On the upside, got a £20 voucher, so I guess it was worth it.

I don't think 100 books in 2012 is going to happen...at all.

Just read one of my more recent journal entries where I was freaking out about exams and everything.
Little update: the mock exam went fine and I just managed to get an A* in it, which I was really pleased with. I did my real exams this week, which I hopefully did okay in; not completely sure. I got an A* in my controlled assessments too which I was beyond happy with, because I wasn't expecting it at all.
I think I might go and eat some nutella now, because I have nothing else to do.

i swear i was a nervous wreck not long ago. totally freaking out about exams that are in two months. my mock exam is in a week, and i get my results back for controlled assessments this wednesday. rather scared. i want to have done well but idk if i will have. i guess it's all been done so i can't really change what i get, i can't retake it or anything so i get what i get for the controlled assessments. i just hope it's good and something i can be really pleased of. a* please, anyone?
calmed down a bit now anyway. blah blah blah.
