Term 2, Week 2; 29/04/2019 - 03/05/2019

It's Fridayyyyyyy, woop woop!!
This week has been tiring, and so unproductive but over the weekend I'm going to catch up on lost sleep and get on top of my work; Mainly get ahead in Maths and studying for my Legal Studies SAC (attached below).
Nothing very important happened this week except for playing around with ATAR calculators and stressing about the fact I don't know what I want to do with my life.
Law? or Paramedicine?
Who knows?
Not me.

If anyone can direct me to threads about 90+ ATAR's and 50 study scores I'd be so grateful.

Now you see my friend and I were playing around with ATAR calc and realistically I could get;
English: 30
Further Maths: 45
Legal Studies: 45
Biology: 30
Which estimates I would get a 84.00 ATAR
But for me to achieve the kind of ATAR I wanted (90+) I would have to get higher in English (like a 40) and like a 50 in Further... like please tell me if I'm being realistic - I suck at writing essays like really really suck so any tips or threads about getting better at English please point me in the right direction.

You might have noticed I'm considering only doing 4 subjects.. will I be shooting myself in the leg if I only do 4 subjects?

Thought I'd pop in for a visit. Year 11 treating you well so far?

stressing about the fact I don't know what I want to do with my life.
Too relatable. And I'm in Year 12! I reckon some uni students still don't know what to do either!

How many subjects do you think will be best? I'm trying to decide whether I should do less and focus really hard on them OR do more and perhaps do less good at them.
Thank you :))

Year 11 is fairly cruisy, except for my year 12 subject - slowly becoming more and more stressed about it.
Thank you so much :))

Pros: Less subjects more time to really get good at the few subjects (then ok at many)
Cons:but then again a particular quote is always stuck in my head "If You Want Something Done, Ask a Busy Person To Do It"
and teachers are suggesting you do 6 so then you use your 'free time' more productively.

Not sure I agree with this bit necessarily. Sorry if you've covered it already, but remind me what the other subject you'd be considering is?

Hey Jade!! Haven't commented here yet so thought I'd say hello. How are you finding Year 11? And lol same I did Psych last year and we learnt about neurons and dendrites then. Oooh I just saw you're doing Psych too YASS it's the BEST!!! Of course having the most amazing teacher helped a lot! What movie are you watching? Great job on your Business Management mark!!

Why is Criminology/Paramedicine your dream career? And I'm really liking those smart and specific goals you've set yourself, a Year 12 may just be having to take up some of that and use it too ;)

lobster joke!!

Hey Mango8!
Thank you, That's a brilliant joke BTW.
Ever since I was very young I wanted to have a career in law and I read all the books in my local library on law but when i got older I realized how difficult it would be and I gave up on the idea untill recently I was like if I never try imma regret it.
I'm also a VICSES volunteer and I love volunteering as a first responder especially the medical/casualty handling side of things and I enjoy helping people.

What a stitch-up. 😂

What's the movie, btw? I remember watching (read: being in the room for) The Truman Show and Mean Girls in Psych 1&2.
