Things I want to do and goal setting...

So the summer is nearly at an end... and a new school year is unfortunately in sight, nevertheless my last school year ever! Year 13, Alevels, so much work but also there will be prom and without a doubt a lot of memories. I've had a lot of time to think over the past 2 weeks being on holiday and I thought a good post to do would be goals I want to achieve in this final school year and things I want to do.

So my first goal is to do with this blog I really want to try and blog once a week or at least once every 2 weeks. I know when I start back at school my English alevel coursework starts and that's probably going to take up a lot of time and not going to lie sometimes the last thing I want to do after writing an essay is write for myself, but in saying that I am really going to try as I've really fallen in love with blogging this summer.

Have fun and make memories is a big one for me, I have my 18th birthday in January and with majority of my friends turning 18, kick starting in September I don't think this one is going to be hard to do. Something me and my friends also want to do is go interrailing next summer, which will be amazing, I'm so excited already!

So surronding school work I really want to do well in my Alevels, I'm not going to talk about grades but I really just want to open that envelope on results day next summer and be proud of myself, saying that I would really love to get into my first choice uni doing either English language and linguistics or psychology. I'm still making up my mind but I'm leaning towards English at the moment. Another goal it's not really to do with school but I'm going to put it in this paragraph anyways is to pass my driving test, I recently took my theory and passed it and I sort of want to pass my practical test my October but we will see how that goes....

Health goals, I always find this a difficult one, because I feel like they are always the hardest to achieve because something can so easily go wrong, and I feel like in the past when I have done this I've actually never achieved it... I think I set them too high and then get frustrated and disappointed with myself, so these may not seem much but they are a big deal to me. The first one is to become stronger, I'm not going to say getting discharged from physio because I don't know how likely that is but just that bit stronger than I am now. With that I need to learn my limits BIG TIME because I do things that I know will be bad for me and I push myself through them and then no surprise I pay for them, so I need to find that balance! But overall I want to be much more positive about it all, stuff that happens, happens and I want to worry less about it all and just take everything as it comes!

I'm excited for this year and what it will bring... not the work... but the other stuff. All in all I want to work hard, be happy and make memories. I will definitely be updating throughout the year with how this all goes but I can't wait!

After recently finishing sixth form I wanted to reflect on my journey through secondary school; express mine and others views on the education system in the UK, the positives and the negatives. This post includes my views and also the views of others. Also enjoy our leavers and prom photos.

I’ve got PoTS...

So for the past 3 years I’ve been suffering with symptoms of what I now know is PoTS. PoTS or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is a form of dysautonomia meaning my autonomic nervous system doesn’t work properly. Your autonomic nervous system (ANS) controls vital functions in the body such as: heart rate, breathing, blood pressure and digestion. So in people who have PoTS we experience symptoms such as: low blood pressure, high heart rates, nausea, fainting, pre-syncope, headaches, dizziness, heat intolerance, sickness, food intolerances, fatigue and shortness of breath to just name a few!

Applying for university...

I applied to university in October 2017 and will be starting in September 2018..hopefully! I was accepted on to 5/5 of the courses I applied to with 4 conditional offers and one unconditional offer, these offers included 2 russel group universities. I did university tests and completed an individual interview as well as a group interview. This was a highly requested post and as the next year are starting to look around universities and complete UCAS applications it was a perfect time to write this post.
Personal Statement Your personal statement really needs to stand out, you need to show that you are excited and engaged in the course but NEVER use the word passion!!! (Everyone uses it and its better to prove you have a passion rather than just stating it.) Its good to do an introduction - why are you excited about applying for the course, show an interest in a particular part and show your knowledge. The second paragraph you could talk about your current courses - what you have enjo…
