Someday Summary - Friday

Hello all :)
  • I got a B in my January Psychology exam! Regular readers will know the struggle I've had with Psychology; I'm good in class but my previous exam results didn't show that. Well this time, I revised. Properly. I wrote everything in my folder out in note form. Hard work really does pay off.

What my day consists of (I like to revise on my bed!). On my breaks I will paint my nails and plan some posts!


  • I got a D in English. I knew I had screwed the exam up so I was expecting it. I screwed it up so much (Changed the question I was answering for the second half three times) that I'm surprised I even got a D. Obviously I'm retaking because I know I can do better.

  • My future... Firstly, I don't think I'll get into Uni and if I do, I don't think I'll manage. Also, I'll come out in debt and will the degree really help me get a better job? I know people with degrees who are in the same boat with those without. Saying this, I don't want to finish my A Levels and get a 'regular' job because I feel I cannot improve from this. I don't want to do anything with my life.

  • I ordered a Models Own nail polish from eBay and it arrived today... smashed :( This is the second one I've ordered (Different people, different sites) that has smashed. I think it's either the postal service or my house. This is because when the post man drops our post through, it drops to a concrete floor. Just to be sure another one doesn't break because of the concrete floor, I'm putting a box with pillows in under the letterbox. Although it could have been the post man or my floor, I do think that this time it was the sellers fault. The polish wasn't protected well. It had a thin strip of bubble wrap around it and was in a thin, carrier bag like envelope with no built in bubble wrap.

  • The Groupon/ASOS offer... you know half of your news feed is going to be about it. If you are not aware of this offer (Which has now ended but I recommend you sign up to Groupon; fantastic discounts), basically you could buy a £20 ASOS voucher for £9, saving £11. You have to spend £21 at ASOS (£20 voucher + £1 of your own money) so you're really spending £10 and getting £10 free. There were 50,000 Groupons sold and even if everybody did just spend that extra £1, ASOS are making £50,000. It's likely that a lot of people will spend more than £21, giving ASOS a nice little profit.
I'm impatient so have already spent mine (Which I may regret if new products arrive). There wasn't much I actually wanted so settled with 3 Models Own polishes (Champagne, Mystic Mauve, Beth's Blue) (Hopefully these will not break in the post!) and the Models Own nail art pen in Black. I would prefer white but they didn't have it.
So I bought 2 Models Own polishes for £10 and received another polish and art pen for free.

  2. I didn't go to uni and don't regret it one single bit, uni isn't for everyone. It's taken me a long time to work out what I actually want to do with my life job wise so you'll get there in the end :)

    I bought the groupon offer and couldn't wait to spend it, wish I had though as the dress I bought is now £10 cheaper, bummer! Still saved quite a bit though :) xxx

  3. I only have one offer for my uni course and I doubt I'm going to get in. I too feel like I won't survive the course, but I've just kind of accepted that I'm never going to be satisfied with just one career for my whole life so I'm happy to take life as it comes. There are thousands of options other than uni out there, some free, some cheap, some expensive. The thing is finding out what you want to do, even if it's just for a little while, and if you haven't already find out take a chance on life and see what it hands you ;) You will be fine :) I too have heard many stories about post-degree unemployment, I don't even want to go to uni :( lol xxx

  8. Well done on the psychology exam.
    And I know its the same old thing again and again but with how things are now jobs are scarce as it is and I think anybody is better of with a degree or formal qualifications past A-level. 3 or 4 years ago this wasn't the case but now I think a degree is essential.

    And getting it isn't as hard as you think, there are part time/open university options and also the work can be hectic but thats if you leave it. First year eases you in and theres times where A-level seems harder than a degree.

    Work aside uni has been the best experience ever. Everybody (no matter how shy, wierd, dickish, strange, normal) makes friends and lots of them. There are so many people to make you feel welcome and the social side as well as the academic social side is amazing.

    If you do get the chance I would 35465454546546546546546556454% recommend going to uni.

  9. I've been doing art at college for the last year as I thought that's what I wanted to do. However, it's not, & I can't seem to find anything that I want to make a career out of, so hopefully, I'm going to get a job for a few years, go travelling, & then hopefully I should find something that I want to do xx
