Hey, guys and gals and neither of the above! Life is going alright at the moment, although I'm crazy busy. I'm currently on Easter break from college, but I actually seem to be doing more work now
than I do in term time. Did you guys have a nice Easter (if you celebrate it)? I did. I got an obscene amount of chocolate, and my aunt got me this magnetic poetry set, which is basically a jumble of words on magnets, and you've got to try and rearrange them into poetry. This was my first attempt:the sky is a gorgeous shadow of rust and the moon is a symphony of purpleand it is blue in my head and we are together and we are dead.
I have precisely 59 days until my first A-level exam. If we are to believe my teachers, I should get at least A/B/B, if not A/A/B, although I only need C/C/D for my first choice university (to study Journalism and Creative Writing). It's all so stressful though, like I'm running myself ragged trying to revise it all. Today alone, I have done a summary diagram for Tom Stoppard's Arcadia
along with quote banks, and I have made notes on the First World War, the Russian Civil War, War Communism, the Kronstadt mutiny, the treaty of Brest-Litovsk, the Constituent Assembly, the 1921 Russian famine, and the death of Lenin (or, rather, the subsequent power struggle). Also today, I hope to make case cards for the entirety of Basic Criminal Damage for Law. In case you are curious, I am studying Russia in the period 1855-1964 for History; I am doing Arcadia
by Tom Stoppard, and As You Like It
by Shakespeare for English; and I am doing too much to mention for Law. It is hell on Earth. 59 days is not enough.
So, if you feel like brightening up my day, go write on my world of text wall! Here's the link: www.yourworldoftext.com/~Ellor…
