wonderful film, really did the book justice in terms of emotiveness [chrome is telling me that’s not a word but oh well] and just… wow. yeah. worth a watch. only criticism is emma watson’s not so great american accent, not that i could do a better job, but it just seemed really unnatural. i dunno if that’s because i’m so used to her being very british or if her american accent just isn’t very good, but i did find that it spoiled the sam/charlie scenes just a little bit, because even though her acting was good it just seemed a little insincere. gotta hand it to logan lerman and ezra miller - PERFECT in their roles. just perfect.
note: 5 days til results, and the sleepless nights have begun. i burst into tears at the scene where sam got accepted into university. this wait is killing me!
As requested by an anon yesterday!
In theory, aim to stay on top of your work, understanding it as you go along instead of leaving it all til the end, but don’t worry if you can’t, because I never could, even though I tried. I was absolutely hopeless throughout the term then I’d study during study leave and then do fine in the exams. So it is possible. But do aim to keep on top of it, if you can.
Any other advice would be subject specific so feel free to ask if it’s Bio, Chem, Maths or French you’re worried about!
omg no i have exams to study for why have i been on tumblr for an hour i haven’t even reblogged anything
Let’s hope there’s a beautiful 8 marker about photosynthesis or respiration and let’s hope also that the HSW questions aren’t the type that make me suicidal - is it really a tall order to want stuff that’s on the syllabus to come up on the paper?
Good luck everyone, I’m off to bed xx
i’ve drawn out the Nitrogen Cycle far too many times i don’t think i have a healthy relationship with it anymore i know too much about mutualistic N fixing bacteria and if it doesn’t come up on my exam on Friday i’m gonna cry
I got 11 A*s at GCSE and 5 A’s at AS. :)
I’m curious as to why you think I do ‘so much’ studying - at the moment I actually just get the bare minimum done (basically, my homework) and that’s pretty much it. I don’t really have time to do anything else… I only really revise and study when it comes to exam time and I’m preparing for an exam. But anyway, how I get all my homework done is, I try to do as much as possible in my free time at school instead of waiting until I get home. A lot of people waste their free time at school but I think it’s important to utilise it correctly - you end up with a lot more free time at home (so you can waste it on Tumblr). Oh also, it’s important to spend only the required time on a set piece of work. Previously when I used to struggle with work load it was because I was spending too long on stuff that didn’t need it. Identify what you need to do to get whatever grade you need, and just do that. And when you do something, put your laptop/phone away and just GET ON WITH IT. It’ll be done so much quicker.
So much work to do, so little motivation
Bed time now, methinks. GUYS WISH ME LUCK FOR MY C3 EXAM TOMORROW. If the questions aren’t straight forward I will literally burst into tears in the exam hall, just sayin’
Excuse me? ‘Core Maths’ exams are A-Level modules.
That technology essay question was a GOD SEND. So unbelievably happy about that! Perfect perfect perfect. Couple of the reading/listening questions were a bit dodgy (how the hell is “traditional French lunches are disappearing” a reason for obesity?) but apart from that, relatively easy really, and the Cloze Sentences were a breeze ;) omg only one exam left! I have three weeks to absolutely smash C3 which is fine really! I am in such a good mood, the weather is perfect, my exams are nearly over, and next week I’m going with my family to spend the weekend at a B&B by the seaside :’) loving life!
Edit: I just figured out that obesity thing! It means they’re having more fast food. I think. I mean to me it didn’t make sense cos I figured traditional French lunches were like 4 courses and they ate loads but… I guess it’s all healthy nutritious food? Ah well.
Just had it. I think I messed up the Critical Path Analysis because even though I got 3 to be the lower bound for number of workers when I tried to schedule them I couldn’t make it less than 4 :( so so annoying. Rest of the paper was fine thoughhh, and I loved the last question!
Right, time for some chillaxin’ before I started revising Chemistry. I think an episode of Friends and a baked potato are in order, wooooooooooooop.
Just watched House, I was not expecting that ending at all… I was literally staring at the screen like :O WTF. As if there’s only next week left, it’s so sad, I’m gonna miss it so much :|
PS. Had my Chemistry exam and it was okay. Sigh. One down, six to go.
