Post 16

Hello everyone,
A rambling post and a life update have been long overdue on my blog because I’ve been MIA since my birthday back in March. Since it’s nearly the end of April, I thought I’d tell you guys what I’ve been up to since the last time you guys heard from me.

End of March

Honestly, March feels like it was years ago. I was a happy human being who just turned 16 and I was content with life because I was expecting to be stressed and to have these unknown responsibilities a normal 16-year-old is supposed to have. Let’s just say that bit of freedom didn’t last.

Stressed…Who me?

This was one of the many things that I was expecting because exams are in 20 days and I’M NOT STRESSED??! I’m so confused guys. I’m not prepared because I’ve been sleeping so much that it’s unhealthy. If I’m not sleeping, then I’m eating or at school contemplating on whether education is worth it or trying not to fall asleep in class. I just can’t deal with how much I need to know and I’m not the only one. Everyone around me isn’t stressed. We are exhausted. Hence why there hasn’t been a single blog post this month.

My social life is a joke

I don’t go out much anyway and I’m not a party girl but I feel like I’m cooped up at home or school. But, it is safe to say that I go out the majority of the weekends with my sister’s shopping because I can’t focus on home. My friends and I are too busy resting because we simply can’t stay awake at school.

I hate everything and everyone

When you are in secondary, you have the favourite teachers, the nice teachers and the strict annoying teachers. It all changed when I started Secondary. I hate most of them and some are okay but I just can’t deal with the subject because I am simply not prepared for my exams.

End of April

The month s coming to an end but exam season is drawing closer and closer. I’ve done my Art GCSE already (at the start of this week) and thank God it’s over! Art is one of the subjects I regret taking because it burns every bit of creativity within you and it is so time-consuming and I just think that subject is a joke. Let’s just say that my year 10 and 11 experience wasn’t a good one.

So I hope you all enjoyed this little update. I am so sorry that it sounds more like a rant and so blah but, that is how I’m feeling right now. The only thing keeping me going is the long summer holidays. Have a great evening everyone x

    Najida you are doing your very best and keep going each day and that is more than can be asked for! You are all doing incredible! GCSEs or A Levels are very weird and exceptionally strange times in your life and a lot can happen in this time, both changes-wise and stress-wise. If it is any consolation, I can tell you from my experience that what you’re going through sounds similar to things I went through. I love a good dance but I’m not very good at being a party and going out girl. I was so immensely stressed when taking my GCSEs too and I was either, like you, revising, in school, eating or sleeping. Know that this weird and strange time is sadly pretty normal however (now for the flipping good news!!!), once you get your first exam done and dusted the others literally fly through and I can assure you you’ll be coming into school for that final leavers day very, very soon. And I’m sure, as it was for me, it will be ever so bitter sweet too! Keep your chin up girly and know that your beautiful blog and blogging friends are always here for you. This is just the very weird and mad beginning of a very wonderful and unimaginable journey to your best life, trust me!

    I completely agree with you in terms of taking Art as a subject. I used to love it but being forced to create pieces and use techniques you’re not great at makes the enjoyment disappear. Do you know what you want to do in September? x

      I so agree! I’m not sure yet as I’m trying figure out the options I will have after getting my results. I’ve applied to a few places to keep options available x
