I'm just beginning the final year of my GCSEs- where the pressure to get grades that outshine Einstein will be piled on me like a tonne of bricks. And whilst I enjoy school for the most part,my GCSE year makes no promises to be easy.
Hey, at least I can comfort myself with the knowledge that some things really haven't changed -the people are still the same (albeit with new school bags and fashionable haircuts) and so is the actual school bulding, so I won't be wandering around hopelessly, like a lost Year 7. And I can definitely count on the poor dress sense of substitute teachers to remain unchanged.
But some things in the school really are different. New teachers, new rules, painful new shoes... But I, personally, won't be contesting any of this change. Development is great. And actually, it's sort of comforting to know that I get a fresh start with teachers that don't have a pre-disposition towards me.
And if we're going to talk about it on a broader scale,change is definitely a good thing, in my mind. Without it, women would still not have the vote, racism would still be accepted and the world would be an alltogether grimmer place.
Now, I know it's not yet time for New Years Resolutions, BUT I'm making mine early this time (or late, depending on how you see it). Amongst the obvious ones (keep fit, get organized etc.) is the biggie- this year I'm going to really focus on my studies and do well in my exams.
That's my big bit of change for the new term. For anyone else who's starting school or work soon, what are you going to be changing? Leave me a comment!
