Why, hello feeble blog which I never have the enthusiasm to update! Today I thought I would lash down my infernal whinging about school and exams on you again.
So the Junior Cert (TL;DR Big exams) is coming up in about 2 and a half weeks time (they start on June 4th, and continue until the 18th) and it's always this time I always fear when it comes to revising. That sort of purgatory you enter a couple of weeks beforehand when you brain effectively thinks "look at all these nice things I have studied! Let's take a quick recap over those notes - ok bugger me but I don't know anything. So where do I start again?" I mean, it's not as if I can review the whole course in detail. Again. Last time (or perhaps the time before) I wrote about my worries for science - would I forget it all close to the exam? Turns out I did. I'm looking back over all these 50 pages of notes and I think a piece of me genuinely died inside.
The thought that keeps me going and motivated most of the time is summer. I've resolved to get fit, and the most efficient way to do this is probably to go on a run. And what better way to truly do justice to my seemingly idyllic country living lifestyle then to do it early in ye mornin' and then come home and have breakfast?
Ok. I'm not going to lie here but... Well, it's going to be hard. As much as the idea seems wonderfully perfect in my mind, chances are the Internet will provide ample reason to procrastinate and generally destroy my motivation.
I also want to make a game over the summer - which in a sense will be fun, making all the art and music myself - but it's the coding I'm really dreading. I'll end up buying these huge books about it off amazon, before realising I don't have a sodding clue what I'm actually doing. Such is the way of the wannabe 15-year old game developer.
Well, I think I've self-deprecated enough for today. Until the next time I'm actually bothered to get off my arse and write something...
