hiiiiiiiii this new website looks very cool it's very nice
This feels like a good time for a new beginning. Once again, I am here to post irregular updates of my mundane year 12 life.
Recently I have been obsessing a bit too much about my marks, and I don't think it is beneficial to my well-being. It would probably help if I had actual hobbies, because right now the only thing I can use to judge my self worth is my grades (and they aren't even that good). I'm going to try to pick up a hobby or dedicate myself to a past interest, in the hopes of attaining a better balanced lifestyle. (My current one consists of studying and copious amounts of screen time, so anything would be an improvement really.)
Accordingly, I have abolished my study score goals (atar above 69 would still be appreciated tho), and I'm now aiming for the following:
- Pay attention in class and give the teachers respect
- Understand concepts taught and why
- Don't start conversations about marks with other students (either they get a lower score and then it's weird, or I get a lower score and it's sad. there is literally no point)
- Make time for what interests me (learn cool concepts that aren't in the vce study design, touch grass)
- health >> scores (8 hours sleep, not eating trash all the time would be really nice)
- Just try my best, work hard and have no regrets when I look back on this next year
As time goes on, I will probably edit/add to this list.
Anyway, here is a brief subject update because I haven't done this in a while:
English I haven't written an English essay since last term oops. My goal for this week is to brainstorm about the themes/quotes for the comparative texts and finish the section A essay that I started two weeks ago.
Spesh I rushed to finish the textbook last term because I thought that it would make my life easier and it would be fun to just do practice exams without having to worry about homework, but now I am so bored. Practice exams are not that fun and I can't even do them casually because I don't want to waste the exam vibes. I started doing the textbook revision exercises because I couldn't be bothered doing exams... I am just going to chill in spesh for now and see how it goes.
Physics I finished the textbook in the holidays because again, I thought that it would be fun to not have to worry about homework anymore. We're doing the prac now and I have no idea how Pasco Capstone works. We may actually have to time with stopwatches if this does not work, but we need to measure 3 velocities that happen almost at the same time so it's a bit difficult.
Further I used to hate further because it seemed to pointless whilst demanding so much effort at the same time, but now I love it. Compared to my other subjects, I can do almost no homework and still feel comfortable. Also I basically learnt all of matrices in methods (apart from dominance/communication) and it is great.
I hope everyone's term 3 (or just july for the non school children) is going well.
