Happy New Year everyone! I know we're five days in, but this is first chance I've had to write a blog entry. So, Happy New Year to anyone reading this, and especially those who comment on my blog - it's lovely to know people have read it! =]
So, the not so new me part - well, surprisingly, I'm on here because my homework's doing my head in, the essays don't make any sense, and I need some form of escape! I'll just say this is warming up my fingers for the few pages I'm gonna have to finish up tonight. I have started both essays, one of which is just time consuming, but the other is pure evil - Russia History - and is possibly the worst thing I've ever written - it's quite clear I don't know what I'm talking about :s ! So, a quick update on here, then I'll be getting back to it - both are due in tomorrow, which is my first day back.
I really cannot believe how fast this holiday has gone - does anyone else feel like this? One minute I was looking at the two weeks off, stretching in front of me - the next it's time to go back! I guess I've just got to be grateful that we get a week off next month...although at the minute, that seems all too far away!
I've been preoccupying myself with lots of things this holiday -homework not being the prominent thing! I've been working on a novel I've been attempting to write for an awfully long time - I'm up to chapter 9, have written about 70 A5 pages, which is about 20,000 words. I seem to have been working on it forever, and every now and again I have writing sprees, then I leave it for a bit. I enjoy it - even if I really should be doing homework instead of working on it! I've been up late working on it for the past few nights (except New Years Eve, when I went out =] ) and it's getting somewhere - even though it'll be a few years before it's finished! I've also been doing an awful lot of reading and re-reading of my favourite books - I think I;ve read about 25 this holiday - although unsurprisingly none of them have been the ones I was assigned to read over the holiday!
I think that it went so quick because I was ill for the first week of the holiday - but then don't holidays always go quick? All in all, it's not been too bad a break - and I definitely needed a break from school. To be honest, I'm getting fed up of Sixth Form. I'm not sure what it is: there's a lot of work, but I can cope with it, and I am doing so; I don't hate any of my lessons really, well, not as much as I hated some of the ones I had to do last year; and I have good friends. I think I'm feeling like I've grown out of it - I'm ready for Uni (which is still another year and a half to go!) and ready for different people. I remember feeling the same way at the end of Primary School - but none of my friends seem to be feeling the same way.
I hope you all had a good New Years, and here's to a great 2009! My New Years Resolutions: to get quite a lot of my book done, and to be a little more organised. I think I have more hope with the former than the latter!
