For me, this is a Monday evening and today I went back to school (although you’ll be reading this on Wednesday, and I’ll have been there for two days and will be fully into the swing of things by then!) and it wasn’t quite as bad as I thought it would be! Now, yes it was boring and the lessons were tiresome as ever – seriously, who gives someone all three sciences, maths and double english in one day? However, negativity is not the way to start a new year, and so that’s why I thought I would come over to the blog and write a little about some of my back to school goals for this year! Maybe I’ll do a post checking up on them in a few months? Also, incase anyone didn’t know, I’m in Year 11 which is a really important year as I have my GCSEs in just 9 months and I’m sure it’ll whizz by!
Do all homework the night it is set
Or near enough…
Of course, this will pretty much differ a lot when I have larger bits of coursework (cough cough food tech) to do, but I’m going to try doing all my homework the night I get it so it won’t pile up around me!
Pack my bag the night before
See, this always makes me feel so much more organised in the morning when I do it, so I’m determined to have my bag already packed every morning to make sure I don’t forget things I need like calculators and pencil cases; believe me, the amount of times I’ve forgotten these is mad!
Work on my maths
If you know me, you’ll know maths (and chemistry, but that’s an entire different and violently boring story) is my biggest hate in life and that I simply cannot do it at all! I want to work on my maths this year so I can do my GCSE to some level of a decent standard and pass it? Am I asking for too much, I hope not! I’ll just have to practice, practice and practice but it all will (hopefully) work out in the end!
Keep my room clean
My room gets in such a state during the school term because I’m a very messy person and school doesn’t help me keep it organised. I’m going to try making my bed every morning and keeping my floor tidy, and most importantly my desk tidy! I hope this will help when I get my new windows fitted and my room will be more bright, as maybe then it will motivate me to keep it cleaner; who knows!
Get up at the same time every morning
I live dangerously close to school, which means I can literally get up ten minutes before I’m supposed to be there, throw on my clothes and chuck some makeup on my face and leave. However, this means I’m basically still not awake while I’m sat in form. I want to be up early enough to have time to get ready nicely on a morning (today was 6:45am, and I’d rather like that to last) but also where it wont make me too tired throughout the day.
Try to make notes of my lessons in full every week
I know this will help me so much around revision time and when GCSEs and mocks hit me, so I’m going to try my hardest to do this. I only wish I’d done it since the start of year ten (if you’re starting year ten, I really recommend this to you as it wont take too much time if you make good class notes but it’ll make revision SO much easier!)
So, those are all of my goals for back to school, and I just hope I can achieve them! What are your goals for this year? Got a similar post? Link me to it in the comments and I’ll be sure to check it out. Also, make sure to tell me all about your first day back at school too! This will probably be one of my last back to school related posts, unless you have any huge wants for a post I havent written, in which case I’m more than happy to take suggestions!
