What’s up guys?!
So my Easter holidays are starting tomorrow and I’m totally dreading it for one thing because that means intense revision and there’s no backing out of the fact that my exams are less than two months away. *hyperventilates into a cushion*
As you can see from my earlier posts, I’ve been freaking out massively about the future. From changing my course to the university I want to go to, from panicking about my grades, from fretting over my procrastination skills – nothing new there – I’ve been particularly busy. For a while, I was set on going to University of Essex as it was an average- semi decent university for someone with my grades and I was happy to aim to go there. Then something changed. I realised I didn’t want to go there. The University of Essex is only about an hour away from me (I live in East London) and I had a sudden urge to get out of London/Essex. I wanted to go to a really good uni, a – dare I say it? – a Russell Group. I know what you’re thinking. How can a C/B student get into an uni like that? The answer is: I’m not sure of it myself. My only hope is doing better than I think I’m going to do and then on results day applying to a better university than I intended to go to through Adjustment. (I shall explain the whole university and UCAS system another time to my international followers ^^)
To do this, I need to work on my grades dramatically.
So we still haven’t come to the actual reason of this blog post and why I hate the dreaded Easter holidays. Well for an expert procrastinator like myself, intensive revision for two weeks is just…mind numbingly miserable. I can’t focus very well at home and although I do go sometimes to the library to study, at times I just can’t be bothered to move from my bed. Take right now, I’m meant to be making notes on the key themes of King Lear but I actually just spent the last hour trying to finish Games of Thrones S3 (which I have been trying to do for the past six months but failing due to my extreme slowness at TV shows) and browse The Student Room for University and Freshers blogs because reading up on how fun university is gets me extremely excited as I will be going there soon so double yay. Sad right? TSR is becoming my new obsession literally.
