Saving the world...

I guess it can be said that I am an eco warrior. Yet it feels like half the time, I'm the only one in the world who cares. I mean... I'm taking my geography GCSE, and in my revision guide, it was just being so... matter of fact about the inevitability of climate change, which I found kind of upsetting. I mean, I don't want to give up on our planet. It's given us everything, and we destroy it in return. We'd be nothing without it... yet people think they're so secure in their urbanised lives, and don't give a damn that everything that means everything to us is dying because of fossil fuels.
So

GCSE results...

Just my Year 10 modules, but for me I'm like OMGWTFBBQ. I did not expect this...
English Language - A*
Biology - A*
Chemistry- A*
Physics - A*
Geography - A* (100%!! *screams, then falls to the floor*)
History - A (one mark off an A*, may get it remarked)
PE - A
Philosophy and Ethics - A*

What the actual fuck.

Results, results, results

So my fellow GCSE students will know that tomorrow is Results Day.
Let's just say, I'm shit scared. SHIT SCARED.
Ugh. Shiitee.
Have I screwed up my future?
WHO KNOWS, BUT I'LL KNOW TOMORROW.
Oh my god.
Good luck to everyone, honestly. God bless.

Five Year Olds Kill

So I've been on work experience today... four more days to go until I get to go back to school (yess!)
So I'm working at primary school, and I'd hoped I'd be stationed in the office. The first hour I got assigned some filing to do, and with a cup of tea in my hand, I got down to it. A cup of tea = so far, so good in my book. Unfortunately, they then posted me to the classroom. A classroom of five-year-old boys. The school is a boys' school, so I wasn't exactly surprised, but five? Ouch. I then spent six more hours being exhausted by tiny missiles who would not leave me alone.

I have never been so happy

These past few days have been amongst the best in my whole life. It sounds so weird, because I've just been at school, but I just feel so... happy. Like I've finally settled into my life, and become the person that I always wanted to be, without trying to change. I just love life at the moment!
Everything I've wanted is coming true. I just... can't express myself, how I feel, right here right now. I mean, people never used to like me that much. I wasn't an outcast or anything; but people never used to get attatched to me or anything. Just.. all that's changed now.

What should I say to her?

I've said something similar to this before, but I'm still really unsure...
So basically, this girl at school has been acting really weird towards me for about six or seven months. I've known her for nearly four years, we've been in the same class since we joined the school, and we were never really friends- I mean, we didn't mind eachother, but we were in different friendship groups and didn't mix as friends ourselves. But since around November/December, she's been acting really nice towards me.

I don't know what to do anymore...

Basically, For a long time, I've had really bad insomnia, it is so hard to fall asleep and I lie awake for as much as seven hours before falling asleep for an average of two or three hours. I can never focus on my school work or revision, and as I have two GCSEs on Wednesday - History and Physics - I'm starting to get very concerned. I had three other exams last week. Two of them I managed to sleep OK but only because I took cold and flu night nurse medication that I didn't need, and one of them I didn't sleep well before even though I took the night nurse.

What should I do about this girl?

She's like always complimenting me, always asking me if I'm alright, always talking to me about nothing, that kind of thing.

Football and Fails

So I had my chemistry GCSE today. I think it went badly. Very badly. I didn't have that usual feeling I get in exams and reading the last page was like reading Russian - I could barely make sense of the letters on the page. I was also in the medical room all morning- I didn't feel well at all and my head was all over the place. My only consolation was that everyone else found it hard too so there will probably be lower grade boundaries. Still. I wanted A*, and now I'm not sure if I'll get it D: I know I am capable of it, but everything was so screwed around today.
So I had my Geography

Can I ask a huge favour?

Basically, I hate to bother any of you guys, but I kind of need some help that i would appreciate from the MCRmy. I'm writing an issue of my climate change blog for the school newspaper and I don't know which bits to put in... I'm not going to start one from scratch because I have too many exams on at the moment, so I was just going to do a bit of a mash-up.
