How I Organise My Life...

Hi everyone, recently I have read a lot of these posts, on how people organise themselves and I personally actually really enjoy reading them. So I thought I would show you guys my way I stay organised!

The first way is I have a diary. Yes having technology is amazing but personally I find it easier to just write everything down. So I have this diary:

It's an August through to August diary. It is slightly bigger than your usual diaries which are normally around A5 size this one is in-between the A4 and A5 size and a bit wider. Not that, that is a problem at all and inside explains why. I also got it off amazon.

It then has a double page spread for a monthly overview, where I put school deadlines/important dates. Then free time events, when I'm working etc. 

Then it has weekly plans with to do lists down the side. So on the left I put any lessons I have that day or what I'm doing. Then on the right any school work I have got to do or just everyday things I have to remember. I then use a green highlighter to cross off anything I do.

I then have a smaller notebook which I use mainly for lists or planning. So for art I have large projects I have to work on constantly so I will write lists of artists I have to research, photos I have to take, things I have to get/physically do.

Also in this diary I tape the edges of the paper of anything important or things I know I will have to come back to. 

So that's how I organise myself. Obviously I also colour code everything!
I hope you have enjoyed this post,

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…
