Mentally preparing myself for the 12 days of continuous school ahead of me. Why, do you ask?

Little Jenny

I love sifting through old photos. Preferably looking through photo albums. I think I prefer photo albums because they are tangible and special. But here's a couple of digital ones:
I'm as small as I look here!

Apologies for this being on it's side, but you get the picture :P

I have a work placement!

I now have a work placement at a Dental Practice! I go once or twice a week in my free time slot on weekdays. It's quite handy because I can walk to the practice from school in under 20 minutes and it's a pleasant, non-creepy walk too. At the moment I've been shadowing and I feel like I'm learning so much. Definitely an environment that I feel comfortable in! I also love the independence of making my own way to work and back again. However, I am yet to experience a trek in the rain..or the snow for that matter, maybe my opinion on walking will change with the season.

Sixth Form Update: I swapped my Physics A level to Psychology. This decision was purely down to the fact that Physics doesn't interest me. Of course, there are some aspects that I love...the stars, the universe but I didn't enjoy the lessons and it has always been my least favourite science to study. My work load has increased quite dramatically and I'm starting to feel the pressure (no thanks to my up-coming music exam). I've noticed that the focus on 'popularity' has fizzled out, especially in the classes where there are lots of newbies. I prefer it.

Music-wise: I'm trying to be a bit more strict with myself when it comes to scales practice. So this week I have been taking my scales book to school and practising before my first lesson starts. Apart from band, I've hardly had any chance to play my clarinet and i'm, therefore, in the process of brushing the cobwebs of some of my grade 7 and 8 pieces for my AS recording. It also means that my fingers are going to have to get used to the awkwardly-difficult positions and movements in these pieces again, which I spent ages mastering a few years back.

Holy Guacamole. How is it already 11.09pm at night?!

Meet up with the newbies

After school,  about 20 of us (mainly the new comers to our school) had arranged a meet up. So we all went bowling and then went to Wetherspoons...aww I had such a good time! And I some how got three strikes in a row :D FLUUUKE

Family get-together

Today we had a joint celebration for Katie's 18th birthday and Billy and Inken's big move to Germany, so pretty much all of my family went out for Sunday lunch :) It's both happy and sad that Billy and Inken are leaving but I think it's a good move for them and wish them the very best.

I'm really glad that I started up a Blog. It allows me to note down and capture the best parts of my life, parts that I don't necessarily want on Facebook or twitter or even for the majority of my friends and acquaintances to see. It lets me annotate pictures whilst the memory is fresh in my mind, so when I read it back I'm prompted and once again thoroughly entertained by that memory. I think I'll thank myself when I'm old for doing this. Slightly mind-blown by the fact that I may be reading this post about my future self, as my future self in years to come..woah. 

I feel like a happy person right now :)

Life is good. 

Good Night <3

What day is it?!

I apologise profusely to my beloved blog and readers for neglect this week, but I have a reasonable excuse, as I've been super busy with school and keeping on top of my homework and notes! Usually I can't fall asleep until way after 12am, but today I got home from school around 4 and must have fallen to sleep. I was woken up by my brother when he put a cup of tea on my bedside table. I looked at my clock and it said 7. I was convinced it was 7am Saturday morning and so I went down stairs to have my breakfast, feeling a bit confused as to why I was on top of the covers rather than under them. Then my Mom arrived home from work and only then did I realise that it was still Friday and I had woken up at 7pm. 

Things I've discovered this week at sixth form:
  1. My school uniform was far comfier than 'smart office clothes' and quicker to get on in the morning, considering you don't have to decide what matches with what
  2. I have to do 3 hours of homework a week for each subject
  3. I should put an umbrella in my handbag, just in case someone accidentally  sets the fire alarm off and I have to stand outside in the rain (yes, this unlikely event happened today, and nope I didn't have an umbrella) 
  4. Not having Lunch until 2.25pm lowers my work efficiency and productivity
  5. The new Microsoft Office has really cool background settings, which means I can personalise word, outlook, powerpoint etc to have little sandwiches and juice bottles with faces on in the top right corner
  6. The comfort of my heels decrease as the week progresses
  7. The Milky way galaxy has a mass of 4 X 10 to the power of 41 Kg or 400000000000000000000000000000000000000000kg

There's something about the Sky

There is something really cool about the sky. I just love it. I'd say that is one of the huge benefits of living in the country. If you haven't already noticed, take a look at the blackness near the bottom of the picture...no lights! Which makes the sky appear even more wonderful.
