Ugh... :/

So I sat my Biology GCSE paper 1 today. It was a complete BITCH of an exam. I mean, I'm targeted A* and I think I could have got it but the first question was just plain SNEAKY. They deliberately tried to lead us into a trap and it was just a dirty trick. I mean, what's the point of setting trick questions? It's not testing your scientific knowledge, which is what the paper's meant to be ABOUT.
Other than that I think it probably went okay... but who am I to judge?
Did anyone else sit the Biology Triple Science B1 paper today?
If so, what did you think?
I've got Geography on Thursday.

Saving the world...

I guess it can be said that I am an eco warrior. Yet it feels like, 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 I've started


Hey Killjoys.
I'm a bit depressed today because of all my revision I have to do for my GCSEs. They're next week! D:
On Tuesday, I have Biology. Basically, what happened was that I was meant to take biology in January, and I worked really hard for it, but a few days before the exam the teacher came into the room and goes "We booked you in for the wrong exams. You can't sit this exam this week, it'll have to be in June," So basically, I worked REALLY hard, and now I just have to re-revise it AGAIN after all that.
On Thursday, I have Geography.

God save the Queen...

So it's the Queen's diamond jubilee (60 years on the throne) today (or tomorrow, I forget) and I'm just wandering round the house wailing out the National Anthem. How is it that other countries have national anthems that actually MENTION their country? Ours doesn't have the word "Britain" or even "England" or anything in it AT ALL. It's all "God save our gracious Queen, long live our noble Queen, God save the Queen... send her victorious, happy and glorious, long to reign over us, GOD SAVE THE QUEEEENNN!" Thrilling, isn't it? It's got nothing to do with the people or our country at all.

Plushies for India...

Hey guys, I'm going to India to do volunteer work next year, and I'm saving up the money (halfway there!) and I thought what I could do was sell some of my homemade MCR plushies. I've been making them for a year or so now, and I think it is time to say goodbye to some of them (sob, sob sob) because I'm running out of time to book my flights and stuff.
So here they are:
I can do the whole band or individual plushies, in either killjoy, black parade or three cheers, so just tell me which one you would like and I'll get back to you :)
Also, my facebook page for my work:

Just sleep...

Chronic insomnia sucks.
Seriously. I have only had two/three hours sleep a night for three nights running now. I'm exhausted and bloody depressed.
I haven't slept properly for about a month. The first really bad sleepless night was when I was worried about a maths paper and since then I've hardly slept. It's just school, stressing me out. I worked so hard to become Editor of the school newspaper, it was probably harder than most for me as I had to go through loads of application processes and interviews and I'm generally really shy.

Me and Yasmin :)

So me and my friend Yasmin are in our Physics lesson...
We're having... such fun.
Hahahaha NO we're at school.
In a second, we're gonna be SLAUGHTERED by the teacher.
So we better go.

Keep Running :)

My weird day...

I'm gonna tell a story that none of you will care about, but hey xD
So today, as it's exam week and all (not real GCSE exams, mind. Just end of years that don't count for anything, as my school has a penchant for student torture...) and I was all happy because although I had a physics exam in the morning, I had no other exams all day, which is a small miracle at my school.

So sick and tired of things...

How did I end up here?
That's a serious question... the last thing I remember before turning on the laptop was revising one paragraph of chemistry. Now I'm downstairs and on How did that happen?
My life is about exams. And school. Taking 12 GCSEs was always going to be hard, but now it's getting ridiculous. I'm constantly needing to revise, not revising, getting depressed about not revising, then being too depressed to revise. It's a vicious cycle.
I can't remember who I am anymore- or what point there is to life except getting good exam results.


I know everyone is posting it, but I want to say happy birthday to Gerard,
Honestly, before I discovered MCR I didn't like music.
If you had told me back then how one band's songs could make me feel, I wouldn't have believed you.
MCR are an inspiration, they've done so much for me and even more for other people.
I just want to thank them and wish Gerard a very happy 35th year of awesomeness.
Congratulations to Frank as well :) Baby Miles...
Today I just felt so crap, but I listened to The Kids From Yesterday, S/C/A/R/E/C/R/OW and Summertime and now I'm smiling. Thank you.
