it's saturday again!
Unfortunately, this post is once again lacking sweet treats.
I still have computer gremlins!
But I thought i'd write a quick post to let anyone interested know how my HSC exams are going.
So far i've done my Business Studies paper and first English Paper.
Business was a breeze, and English was way better than expected.
However english exams always seem to be the ones that explode my brain.
Why? Because they are mind numbingly boring and full of writing.
Throughout the week i've had little moments where i've squealed in delight as i've come to realise that:
1. I'll never have to look at another business text book again (it's time for real life stuff!)
2. I will never, ever have to study poetry again
The HSC isn't all that teachers are other students make it out to be.
It's not that bad.
Sure, you have to spend a good hunk of your time writing out boring essays and answering multiple choice questions
but it's not the end of the world, and I can think of 100+ other things that are way worse.
Plus, by October 26th, I'll never have another exam to do :)
So, my exam tips?
1. Eat Breakfast!
2. Make a checklist of all the equipment you need, and check it
4. Remember you can only do your best
5. Read, read, read and re-read the questions
6. Scribble down ideas as they pop into your head (especially in English!)
Sure, I'm not sitting my exams to get the highest of high scores,
or a good UAI or ATAR or whatever.
I'm sitting my exams so I can say "Hi I'm Kristy and i've managed to survive 13 years of school"
Actually no, I don't know why i'd say that.. but hey, at least I can!
Really i'm just sitting these exams for me
to say that i've done them
and to really move on from school.
Here's hoping there's much bigger things coming my way.
So tell me,
How has your week been?
and what subject did you DESPISE at school?
