These past few weeks have been as fun as they have been hectic, and it’s not going to stop there.
It’s strange to think a year ago today I was worried about my GCSEs, and here I am now worrying about my A-Levels. Time simply doesn’t last long enough.
My exams are in a few days and over the next two weeks - my first being this coming Tuesday. I’m worried, of course, probably because I’m human - but ultimately I’ll probably get what I deserve, and then next year will be the same. It’s funny how in just a few hours you get determined a label that will sit above your head for the rest of your life.
I’ll do what I can do.
The school over the past few weeks has been selecting people for ‘Officer Roles’ in the school. If you’ve ever seen any naff American high-school movies were they elect school president, it’s a bit like that. I decided to stand for Head Boy with the simple state of mind: “I’ve got nothing to lose”. A few people told me I was crazy, and I was a little bit - I’ve only been at the school 9 months, and was standing against 6 others that had been there from day one. But, as I said, I had nothing to lose.
And I got Deputy Head Boy, which needless to say was far exceeding my expectations, and I really couldn’t be happier. I can’t say I know the person they selected for Head Boy very well, but from when I’ve spoken to him, he seems like a great guy very deserving of the role, so a congratulations to him.
I was also shortlisted for Animation 13 by Manchester University, and will be returning to the prize-givings for the 4th time with my recent animated poem.
