my wonderful exam results… (sarcasm)

21 Aug

Oh hey there sexual interwebbers!
How has everyone’s week/two weeks been? I haven’t been on the net recently, sure you’ve missed me.. lol, hashtag-sarcasm.
So this week (well, last week now..) I got my exam results, like most of the people in the UK. Oh dear. And like most of you beings, I was laying bricks the two weeks leading up the date of doooom (august 16th to be exact). So, the night before was the deciding what I was going to do before my exam results. I decided, no make-up and leggings, just in case I had to run home and sit under my duvet. So I get my results and I was secretly quite happy, because I knew all of the answers for the exams that I took. So I get my little brown envelope (the little brown parcels of hate) and went to my car where my mum was waiting for me, and on passing my friends we did the whole oh good luck! Spiel, got in my car and opened the little flap and pulled out the white sheet of doom (am I building the tension yet? 😉 ) and look at it. I read the big letters down the page, and burst into tears. Not the good kind. Turns out the exams that I had been so ok about, thinking that I would get great results and do myself justice, were based on false hope. DDDDC. Now, in GCSE, I got all As and A*s (not meaning to gloat) so getting this on my A levels when even in class I get like As on my homeworks, I was so shocked. One of the Ds was in general studies which is like the multiple choice exam that you don’t have a lesson on and then write an essay (the multiple choice were simple comprehension questions and the essay was based on soap operas…) in 2 different exams: culture; and science and technology (they only asked us about plastic bags- GCSE chemistry basically, but simplified) and in one of them I got an A, and in the other I got an E, levelling out to a D, and I was quite shocked, because all year the teachers and students were like, yeah general studies is the one exam that youre garenteed a good score in, an idiot could pass it- well, obviously not for me! Haha. But yeah- the others I was quite shocked about as well (RE+philosophy (kind of- I don’t have a good essay technique), human biology (I got a C, dispite knowing all of the answers?), and psychology (again, knew all of the answers?). to be pretty honest to you, Im not shocked or surprised on my D in german- I finished the exam an hour early and just did ip-dip-doo on all of the listening questions which were multiple choice!. But there you go. That’s my exam results. And now I need to think of something else to do in the future. I originally wanted to go to dental school, but didn’t do A-level chem, then decided that I could get my degree in dental hygiene and therapy then go on to a full dental course, but that needs BBB, which I don’t have right now and need to apply in October (that reminds me- I need to write my personal statement- crap!). what else can I do?! Also, I am taking my SATs in november to see if I can go to an American dental school- I just need to ace it, it’s all multiple choice, and only one very tiny essay, so I should be fine!- which has always been my plan any way –my parents weren’t too keen on the idea, but now that I wont get into a school in England which they wanted, they’ve kind of given in hashtag lol- wooo studying…. Haha.
How did everyone else’s results go? Ive spoken to a lot of people (well, a lot being some on my friends, so objectively not really a lot, and they didn’t do too good either. I don’t understand why they’re being so harsh on marking exams and making the grade boundries so hard and making the exams so full of content which is like impossible- don’t they want kids to do well?!- and its just unfair on the students that aren’t like child protégés who sit at home learning 10 instruments and living in a library because we probably wont get in to the university we want, dispite the fact that we probably are not the top people but not dipshites either. Grrr. Hate the british school system. Does anyone else agree? If you want more of my ranting, I have done two previous blogs on school and exams 😉
In better news, IM GOING TO THE BEACH TOMORROW WOO!! And I go a new school backpack- im going to be the coolest person everrr! 😉

why the future scares me

25 Jul

hello bloggie friendy wordpressy lovelies!!
sorry i havent blogged in a while, been so busy with school and work its been like a hurricane going off in my brain, which already cant handle many of the everyday tasks that come at a person (im a bit, some say, “slow” haha), but that is, as said by many, down to my physical and psychological blonde nature 😉 but there you go.
so what’s been bothering me, and probably many other people in the Uk right now, if not, the world (thats a scary thought) is the thought of university apps. im going into my final year of 6th form, and i have had the idea of going to university and knowing exactly what i want to do shoved at me every year, but especially this year. i think in the space of a month, i had about 4 full school says, just devoted to higher education, and some people just need to sit back and be like, wtf.
so dont get me wrong, i want to go to university more than anything, you know, freedom, a career, new friends, living alone, partying, no parents telling me im not allowed to go out at certain times, and that sounds like such an awesome concept, which ive been looking forward to my whole life (well, from the age which i knew what university WAS), but, what i dont get, is if the world wanted to many people with careers and having proper training and usable skills, why make university to competitive?!
the course i want to do, dental hygiene and therapy, is an awesome course (i wouldnt get onto the proper dentistry course as i dont have an A level in chemistry-boo), and you come out of it with a decent starting salary (about 40,000), but what i dont get is the few people that they actually accept onto a course. like, portsmouth, por examplé, only take 16 people out of like 500 applicants, and im like, how the hell am i going to compete with 500 people for a spot??!! im not THAT smart, but i could get the BBB requirements.
like, if people were so into there being people in all of these career sections, then why make it so fricken competitive that no-one will be able to get on?? i just think its rediculous. so i’ll just be a full time tweeting, blogging, cupcake decorating freelance photographer and see how that goes. why not?
i understand why university is meant to be like an amazing thing, but its not cut out for everyone. some people just need to take a step back and just do what the hell they want.(so i can get that place in a dental hygiene course ;))
so yeah, anyone else got any problems/worries about universities they want to discuss? i’ll be more than happy to discuss it with you! just post below! 😉
oh, and about my blogging habits, i’ll try to blog about once a week now that summers in (schools out- yay!!) so watch this space! 😉
if you’ve got twitter then follow me on @RachaelHannahx3 or @RachaelSays_ and if some of you interweb users are very hi-tech, then follow me on tumblr; wwww.peace-love-camera.tumblr.com ( but you’ll need to teach me how to use it as it seems ive only been reblogging pictures of cats, hashtag-foreveralone). so ask me something or follow meeee! 😉 also or my pretty snaps, http://www.flickr.com/RachaelHannahx3
ok thats my spiel done, just wanted to get that out there so i can connect with my blogging friends 24/7 😉 (im a pro stalker. ok only kidding!)
i promise next blog will be funnier, i just wanted to get this out there 😉
so yeh if you have anything to add to this, comment below!! 😀
byeee!!! ❤

why school and summer annoys me

20 May

good evening bloggers!

hope you all had a lovely, peaceful weekend, ‘cuz i didnt. -.- sat on the floor in my living room ALL weekend, doing nothin but human biology revision for my exam tomorrow. might have a myocardial infarction ive done so much (its a biology joke- get it?? ;)) <- evidence that ive revised too much, haha.

so as exams (kinda) come to an end, that means that summer is upon us. or so we think- look outside at all of the rain and you might be fooled that it is still february- and its that time of year, where im freaking out as hell over what to do this summer.

so every summer for the whole of my life, i have gone to america to visit family, and the past 6 summers i have gone to sleep away camp. but this summer, is the first summer in my whole life that i am not booked to go (im too old to go to summer camp now- boo.) and it sucks, and its like the wierdest thing ever.

so, ive been looking frantically for summer jobs, and i dont know what to do. ive tried to apply to loads of summer camps in America, but i cant work there because their summer season starts in the end of June, and i dont get out of school until the end of July and they wont let me work there for only the second month- i know, it sucks. and i have a part time job at the moment (yeaaah bigging it up working in retail..-.-) and i DO NOT want the highlight of my summer to be working 2 evenings a week in a store. thats just not happening- especially when i need to buy a car this summer (any donations happily accepted ;)) and it just sucks. i have been on pretty much every website on this magical thing called the internet, and i am pulling a blank.i feel like one of those adults who are like massively in debt and unemployed and are in need of a job, but pull up a zero. you know?

now, i am quite a good student, and  have some good GCSEs and i have a good CV (been working since i was 14), so why is it so difficult to get a job? i know people will be thinking, “oh everyone says that, its a recession blah blah blah” but what im saying, is what makes me so unqualified and unable to get a job?? like, seriously?? im literally scraping the barrel with different jobs that i would do this summer- i started looking at day care centers, and for those of you who know, me, you know that i do not like children, and i never EVER dream of having them, but there you go. i will do anything to have something exciting to do this summer, and not just work part time at a store and sleep for the rest of the weeks- that is not me. i am just one of those people that HAS to have something planned to do every day and i hate just sitting around all day.

but what i dont understand, is why the UK feels the need to keep children in school from september to JULY. every other country (America, israel, Germany etc) think “hey, lets let our children enjoy the summer, and let them finish school in june” . but no. the UK doesnt think that, and it pisses me off. you know? its not like in july after exams we actually do anything. for example, my school has told me, that even though i am not continuing some of my subjects next year into A2,i am still expected to be going to EVERY LESSON. like, whyyy?? you know?? blah. this is not fun and i hate the british school system, i really do. i wish i could be like president-primisterer-ess or whatever theyre called JUST to change the laws on schools. who’s with me????

blahh. comment below if you agree with me on school/summer jobs etc.

and reading this back really shows how little focus/lack of a point this has lol. but still.
