Now I can concentrate on doing well in my exams, or something. I have got a little less coursework to do, because my biology teacher got sick of waiting for my coursework, so I did a "strand" on transpiration instead. I think it's better than my coursework would have been but I will only get one mark for it, instead of 4. So I just have two business studies, and two IT to do. It's only 10 (school) weeks 'til my exams. Erk.

Well, that's all from the world of Annie. I have weeks of solid study ahead! Yay!

Well, I'm in a lesson with a supply teacher. I would prefer to be learning, but this is how it goes. Anyway, I am in a damn good mood. I got AA for English and English Literature. Since, I'm a techie, that is a big acheievment!

I'm going to take Physics, Maths, Chemistry and German for A-level. That way I can take either a career in computing, or medicine. Sounds good.

Well, I did okay in my exams. AA for science, A for German (from what I've done), B for Business studies (1 mark from an A), A for IT and a C for history (hmm.). I think I can get that up to straight A's for my real exams. Going to see the doctor today, with Edward. I hope I feel better after.

Apart from all the illness stuff, things are going okay. I do still feel as though I have reached a plateau in my life, and it's not a pleasant feeling. But if I can get straight A's, that might make things a little easier, and start things moving again. I don't know what the problem is but I'd sure as hell like to stop it before it causes any more problems.

So, now I am going to try and get a positive outlook. And I'm going to try to start caring. But it won't be easy. This is the time when I will need my friends.

Well, I messed up my maths and History. Oh well, only mocks. I think I may do a little revision for the real things. In fact a lot. I want to make people proud.

Yuk. Exams on Monday, and I haven't prepared. This is not going to go well. Apart from that, most things are okay.

I am finally going somehere in the world of computing. I now feel as though I'm actually learning. Doing things on my own gives me a great sense of autonomy, and that I like. I will have to rely on others less now; good for the both of us.

One more great thing has happened. I am an apprentice admin on OPN. I almost feel as though I'm in a dream, but I'm so happy. I'm happy that lilo has invested his trust in me, and I hope to repay his gamble. It's great to know that some people do actually believe in me.

I have decided to make a go of my life, my education. So I'll try and get some work done, but I think I will have a week or two of relaxation after my mocks, and then start working. I think I deserve some rest!
