As promised I’m going to write a study with me as I do some homework/revision tasks. I thought these would be helpful so you get an insight into my year 11 journey and you also get a blog post as well. Here goes:
I started off my study session by annotating a poem that was set for homework. I did this for a solid 20 minutes with nothing to distract me. In this time, I managed to annotate one stanza from the poem.
Then I got a bit bored so I moved onto doing a maths question which I was set for homework. I got a bit confused with the question but with great perseverance I managed to get an answer which looked right and hopefully, it is right. I’m just going to check it. Be right back… So I did it wrong but with a good old Youtube video I was able to correct myself. I only did one part wrong is good. Anyway originally, it took me 10 minutes to do.
After this I had a 15 minute break where I caught up with any Youtube videos I wanted to watch. I think I watched Gabby’s vlog and a couple more. I prefer vlogs to sit down videos. I also love drive with me and mukbang because if I were to do youtube, I would do these videos except driving because legally, I can’t do it. Oh I watched Anastasia’s drive with me. I’m so excited to see her do more of these videos. I think they really suit her.
I put on Hannah Renee’s video on a makeover and got to work finishing off the analysis to the poem I started earlier. Basically while I have nothing to write, the reason why I have to annotate the poem is because for my English lit course, I have to analyse 15 poems and learn them for May time and we can’t take the poems or annotations into the exam so my English lit teacher wants us to them early on and leave English language till later on. I do this for about 50 minutes and after that point, I have completed it.
At the time I done the English, it was half past 2 and because I was working through that time, I took a time out for 5 minutes and then I got to work with my Spanish. I had to complete this worksheet. This took me around 10 minutes because the vocab was actually quite new so it took a lot of dictionary work to figure out what each statement meant.
I then spent the next 5 minutes doing admin tasks. I put things away and I updated my planner with the tasks I completed. I transferred any homework from my school planner to my personal planner. I then took a proper break which I dedicated as a you tube catch-up. I didn’t really watch anything in particular and after 20 minutes, I decided to do more work but then I saw Mark Ferris’ moving vlog and so I had to watch that of course. This extended my break to another 20 minutes. Oops.
By the time I had finished my break, it was half 3. I decided to arrange my flashcards where they are kept(a box) and sorted the organisation in it. Nothing too major so afterwards, I started making some flashcards on the communicable disease topic. I did this for around 10 minutes when I realised I didn’t know where my phone was. I kind of panicked and spent about 10 minutes trying to find my phone. Eventually, I found it. I continued with the biology flashcards for another 40 minutes. If you look at the flashcards, I have made it doesn’t look many for the time it took but I worked my hardest.
Suprise! Suprise! I took another break because I have done quite a lot and if I don’t have regular breaks, I will end up not doing revision sessions because it’ll seem like ‘too much’ effort. This ‘study with me’ is just a procrastination session, really? This break lasted for about 20 minutes. I watched Jack Edwards moving vlog(I swear to god.. you watch one video and a whole lot pop up in your recommended), Lydia Violet’s get productive with me, Olivia Graces’ GRWM. I swear I was going to go and do more work but food was ready and I was hungry. I went down ate. I came back and have a yet another binge watch on youtube. I watched Saffron’s 24 hours handcuffed to her brother, Ana’s car tour vlog, Brandonio’s 24 hours pranking his sister, Adam’s nun prank, Roxy’s 24 hour challenge etc. I went into the shower and that was about it until…
I don’t really know what I did for the next 15 minutes but apparently I did something school related. One thing I did was put labels on my revision notebooks. I did little admin tasks.
For the next 20 minutes, I began to revise some Spanish Vocab that I need to know for Wednesday. The words are mainly just little words that aren’t significant but are useful if you know.
As CBB comes on, I just pack my bag as I started doing this at the start of the academic year and honestly, it makes me less stressed in the morning if its packed and organised.
That’s it really.
