I'm sitting by a crackling fire at my aunt and uncle's house in New Jersey and we're just a couple hours into the new year, which means that it's a perfect time to review the year and look forward.
If I were to title my year, I'd call it the year I got serious. Something interesting happened near the end of 2011-- I realized that I wasn't actually on track for a lot of my goals, that I was going to have to actually get serious about stuff, and that this seriousness had to come in the form of action, not talk. I ended 2011 with a few months of solid productivity under my belt, and a year-end post that optimistically predicted a productive year.
I'm happy to say that the productive year materialized, and that my focus on getting serious has intensified.
When I was young, maybe third grade or so, a psychologist did a study at my middle school. We answered some questions and were offered two choices: a small prize now or a large prize later. I took the small prize now. I think knew it was the wrong move at the time, but the pack of stickers on the table looked like a lot of fun. Later on the big prizes were given to the waiters in such a way that I was able to see what they got. Sure enough, their prizes were a lot better and my stickers were long gone.
On My Life - Bit by bit.
Today's blog is going to be covering the past 2 days in this single blog, as the title suggests. The reason today's blog is late is because as is suspected I was very short of time yesterday before having to go out to my band concert. The concert was really good, and well worth doing. We were all given Easter eggs at the end too!! Otherwise, yesterday was a pretty bog standard day. I'm reasonably happy that my religious studies' grades have begun to rise. I'm now working at around about a B/A grade, which I'm happy with considering it's only RS. I know it's still a subject but it just isn't as important as other subjects. We also had french, which to be honest is just a pain. We have a ridiculous amount of work to do in not very much time due to this term being so short. That was all that really happened yesterday though.
Meanwhile, today has been more of the same. We had double English this afternoon which was a drag. I've decided that as much as I would like to just concentrate on maths, I'm also going to have to do some work on English literature. As my English literature knowledge is absolutely dire. I know the novel and play which we're studying fairly well, but my knowledge of the poetry is absolutely dreadful. I think the only way to sort this out is to sit down and do some proper revision, which means going on the internet and hunting out the past papers. Otherwise today, I had maths revision after school. Apparently this is now going to be on a Monday and Tuesday. I suppose it means I don't have quite so much revision to do at home by myself which can get boring after a while.
Other than that nothing has really happened over the last 2 days. So I think I'm going to have to leave it there for this blog. Sorry this blog has been so short but nothing of any interest has really happened. Catch you later!
