A Bad Day

I knew today wasn't going to be great; I had a mock history exam scheduled for the morning, a difficult essay due in for a teacher I'm not too keen on, my French Oral exam in the afternoon, and a dentist appointment after that. Luckily, I managed to escape the History mock: I told my teacher I hadn't had a chance to revise, as I had my real exam that afternoon, and she allowed me to reschedule it for tomorrow. I got the essay done, and whilst it wasn't fantastic, I did at least have a few pages to hand in.

I felt really rough all day, because I was so nervous: I find nerves affect me really badly, and I end up feeling or being sick, and having crippling stomach pains. Because of this, I'd asked to have my exam in the morning, but she decided to put it in the afternoon.

So, after a long day of worrying, I got to the exam, and I think it went ok; I was opretty fluent, although I know I made some mistakes. I'm hoping it'll be alright. After that, we went to the dentists; now, I don't particularly mind the dentists, but it's not exactly the nicest place to be. Luckily, he said my teeth looked fine.

Then, around half an hour ago, my mum wanted to go to the garage, and I asked if I'd drive. She checked to make sure all our cats were inside, as one of them is quite deaf and so doesn't move when cars start. Then, I began to reverse of the drive - and heard a squealing. The deaf cat had come outisde, unseen by my mother or me, and I think I ran over his tail. We're waiting for the vet now. I feel terrible, and really put off driving; I'd checked, and just didn't see him at all.

Here's hoping for a better day tomorrow.

I'm sorry you've had such a bad day Becky. Hugs.

Well done with managing school today, it sounds like you sorted it all well and did your best in the exam and with the essay, that's all you can do.

I'm sorry to hear that you have such problems with nerves. I often get stomach ache when I'm nervous before exams and I often struggle to sleep the night before. But I'm usually ok in the exams themselves. Have you tried speaking to your teachers about your nerves? They might be able to offer you some advice.

I hope your cat is ok. I can understand why you feel bad about it, but it wasn't your fault, you didn't know the cat was there. Give him some TLC and I'm sure you'll both feel better.

Try not too let it put you off driving as I was put off driving after a couple of bad lessons (nothing terrible) and decided to take a break from driving lessons. That was over a year ago and I've not restarted lessons since. Now all my friends can drive and I wish I'd persevered.

I hope you have a better day tomorrow. Hugs.

Thanks for your kind comments; just thought I'd comment quickly (still got homework to go and finish) to say my cat's alright; the vet came round and couldn't find any injuries, but gave him a painkiller and antibiotic shot just in case, as he's quite old. So glad he's alright. xx
