A NEW SCHOOL YEAR…

It has been nearly two months since school has started for me and most people.  Probably more depending on where it is that you go to school.  And I am already tired.

For the past few weeks, I have had exams, quizzes, homework, graded assessments, research and group presentations.  It feels like it does not end and I cannot do something that I like, but in the end I know that all my sacrifice and hard work will be worth it, since there is an end goal in mind. In addition to everything going on in school, I am also applying for university which is another story altogether.  I do not feel stressed out or like I will have a nervous breakdown soon.  Instead I feel tired and a bit sleepy all the time.

 The weekends are too short but the week passes by too quick, which is both a good thing and bad thing, since i want a break, but this year is my final year of college with people I have known for a while.  *

There are some days I have classes all day, 6-7 periods for the day, while other days I have 1-2 periods.  That’s just to show you school is such a weird thing.  And yes we do have a syllabus which we have to have completed by the end of the school year to write external exams. **

As much as the academic part of school gets a little too much for me, I have good teachers to help me get through my final year.  I may not have strongest friendships or the best technological devices but I have myself and family to help me get through it all and keep my sanity at the same time.

That has been a summary of the past two months for me.  How was yours and how do you feel now?

PS*I have an english based education because of where I live, so in addition to secondary school, I attend a 6th form or college for two years and right now I am in my final year.

PS** A period at my school is 40 minutes long and in a day we have 8 of them.  However, a subject can either have a single period, which is a 40 minute class or a double period class, which is a 80 minute class.  There are five subjects for a day, and students do 4 subjects; 3 options and 1 compulsory, and have a free period, in which they have no subject for that time.
