09:00 This month was a big month for me.

At the start of the month, I had one of my first big tests and it was science. Everyone was revising for it and there was a lot of pressure to do well. I also put a lot of unnecessary pressure on myself. I ended up getting good marks and I am happy with how I did. 

The main reason for the big test was that I start my GCSE's next year and they want to set us. This also means that this month I have had to pick my options. Once again, I was so stressed out about this, and even more worried when I didn't get my first choices. I am still nervous about next year, and I really want to be in a set with friends. I don't want to go through the making friends process again because it was hard the first time. I still have 6 months though so hopefully it will all be okay.

The reason I chose this picture was that I loved the simplicity of it and I want it to be a reminder for me to think straight and not get too stressed. My other photos of this series have been really colourful, which is different to this.

I am so incredibly happy with my blog at the moment. As it is the Easter holidays, I have spent most of my time on here and changing different features of it, you may have noticed my popular post widget has changed. I am also happy with the quality of my posts and I am very excited for the posts that are coming up in April! 

How was March for you?

Lots of love

  11. Good luck with your GCSEs! We had a similar exam in Spain and I remember it being a nightmare hahah But it all worked out all right in the end! I'm sure it will for you too! ^^ | Acqua xx

  12. I was worried when I started GCSE's and A Levels about making friends because I didn't choose the same subjects as my friends, it was alright in the end because I made new friends in lessons but also still got to see my friends at break and lunch. Try not to worry about it too much because anyone would be lucky to have you as a friend
