I think I've been going INSANE lol. Being cooped up in my house all day is really getting to me now.

Iíve personally had a decently productive week - with a good balance of rest Iíd say. I even managed to do 6-ish hours of school work on Tuesday miraculously!
That's great! I'll be using you as inspiration to work productively this coming week.  8)

Chemistryís been pretty easy so far, but flipping through the rest of the textbookÖ..Iím scaredÖ..
Haha, yes, I'm so scared for organic chemistry. Looking at the structural formulas makes me want to drop the subject.

SPECIALIST: Oh goodness. WellÖ..I spent a fair bit of time catching up on Vectors this week, as I did like no Spec work late last term oops. (Still havenít done Vector proofs thoughÖ..Iíll save that torture for another time.) Spec takes SO LONG to do, and so much brainpower! Iím understanding vectors more now, as it was my worst topic last year, but Iím slowly getting the hang of it. Our SAC wonít be till late next term (super scared!!!) but Iíll probably start going over early topics next week as light revision. Next is calculus and Iím so looking forward to it!! I know its fairly different and harder than calculus in Methods, but Iím actually looking forward to itÖ.and honestly will be fairly relieved ha ha. I never thought Iíd say this, but I actually kinda miss methods. Like although I didnít get a good study scoreÖ..it was actually easy and straightforward? I understood it well, but just wasnít good at questions ha ha. AnywayÖÖ.
Vector proofs are the bane of my existence!  :o Fortunately though apparently they don't come up as often in the exam...but  we still need to do it. *Sigh*. It's good that you're understanding vectors more, doesn't that sense of achievement feel great?  ;D SUPER SCARED AS WELL!!! I mean, it's Specialist. It's okay, we're all in this together (lol) and we can conquer this monstrous sac. Although, it's really good you have your SAC late next term, giving you plenty of time to prepare. Yes, the calculus is different but also cool at the same time!  :D I found implicit differentiation hard to grasp at the start but once you get into it, it's really satisfying! I feel like I'm doing uni maths lol, but that's obviously not the case...

OhÖÖalsoÖÖafter 6 Months, my Dahlia plant FINALLY bloomed! The flowers are so beautiful - this made me super happy this week! Its always the little things :)
Aww, that's so sweet! What colour is it? I always get so excited when I see a little baby leaf growing and then gush about it to my parents who don't find it interesting at all, lol.

Have a great rest of the holidays and can't for your next update, ArtyDreams!  ;D

Anyway, I donít really have much to do on the weekend as weíve just started topics / Iím ahead / homework and schoolwork have just mushed up into one category / my teachers are going easy on us. I will create a to do list though of things I feel like doing and maybe start getting ahead on things. Iím so curious to see how long this will all last!


That's so good Arty! Looks like the online learning is working well for you, I certainly agree that it has its advantages and is more productive in many ways :) Hope you have a great weekend

Hi! I've been contemplating on making a VCE journey journal for a while, but wasnt really sure how to go about it. So I guess I'm just going to wing it ha ha. (A metaphor for my life lol)

Anyway, I guess I'll introduce myself. I'm fairly new to AtarNotes, but I LOVE it. I love the community, as I feel like I can relate to most of the hardworking students here. I love helping people, so I hope I'll be confident enough to answer questions soon too.

Some Random Facts about Me:
- I'm a strong Maths & Science Student, Chemistry being my Favourite! 
- My biggest passion in life is art. I just love the feeling of creating, and drawing anything, making a bland sheet of paper come to life.
- I've played piano in my childhood, as well as tennis. I love following the tennis tour throughout the year!!
- I like to organise and clean (sometimes)
- I have nice handwriting, and I love writing things down, hence why all my school notes are handwritten.
- My biggest goal in life is to help others, be happy and form good relationships with those around me  ;D
- After I finish school, I want to go in the science direction, and I'm thinking of doing BioEngineering, as it combines my love of design, maths, science and helping others all into one! I'd love to do tutoring one day, and MAYBE even teaching if Bioengineering doesnt work out.

Anyway, lets see how much I decide to update this. I'd love to get to know more people here!

And if anyone reads this - THANK YOU - I appreciate anyone that acknowledges my boring life haha.

UPDATE: I had completely forgotten that I replied to you last time LOL SORRY. I thought that I did, but I wasn't sure about it lmao. Let's pretend that I haven't HAHAHAH. I sound like an absolute idiot here 😅😅

Ooooooo hello!!!!! Another potential bioengineering student!!!!! I might be one of them if I do end up going for UoM instead of Monash, and that is the EXACT reason I want to go for bioengineering, but I'm still unsure of my uni pathway. Damnnn, we're similar to each other! Why does this sound like me 🤣. I'm a strong maths student (and relatively at science) too, and I do similar subjects to you, except I did psych 3 & 4 last year, and I'm currently doing chem, bio, methods, spesh and English (no physics unfortunately :( ). I play a bit of tennis as well, and I used to take piano lessons. Idm art, but I'm not the best at it hahah. I like to help ppl too, so I'm aspiring to become a bioengineer and a researcher in drugs and mental health.

I rlly hope everything is going well for you, especially during this pandemic, and everything does change just in a click! I'm a lazy person, so I tend to wake up at 8, then sleep in for a bit lmao. Oooft, online SACs for you, good luck with them, thankfully I don't have any.

Anyway, good luck with Yr 12 and your future endeavours, and I look forward to seeing your updates in your journal!

Aye thats okay! (I think I forgot to reply last time oops) - Thanks for stopping by!
So awesome to see someone else interested in bioengineering - I literally get so excited when I see someone interested in it too - as its not a very common field I think! Looks like we have a lot in common too. - Yay!

Hope online school is going well for you too - have a lovely rest of the week!

That's so good Arty! Looks like the online learning is working well for you, I certainly agree that it has its advantages and is more productive in many ways :) Hope you have a great weekend

Thank you Choco!  ;D

Lmaooo, it's all g. Hahahah yeahhhh ikrrrr, we have a lot of things in common woooo!!!! Online learning's fine for me actually, and for my school, we're only doing two tutorials per subject, which means I'll get a lot of spares over the week, so I better be productive lmao. Also, thanks a lot, hope you'll have a good week too!! ^^

Heyoooo AtarNotes!! Thought Iíd do a short post with some subject updates today since tomorrow Week 3 of Term 2 starts whoop whoop!
In regards to online school, Iím liking it, because Iíve been much more productive. It does help though, that pretty much all my teachers are doing live online classes where our normal class would be scheduled, so essentially I have a normal school day. Iím so grateful for that though - really helps me stay productive!

Anyway, onto some subject things.

PHYSICS:
Motion has officially been finished! As much as I enjoy motion, I really exited to move on and get into some harder/interesting things. Magnetic fields here I come! Physics has been good so far - I finally got my mark back for the SAC we did last term, and considering the stress I was on those days, Iím happy with my score. (3% off the highest mark yay!) Anyway, I like Physics and Iím excited about whats to come.

ENGLISH:
Been quite slow. Just been working on the oral presentation. Havenít done much for this subject et and I really need to start writing practise essays in my spare time (language analysis Iím looking right at you). I think well start our next text soon which will hopefully keep me motivated to study for English.

CHEMISTRY:
OMG I just want to get the first SAC out the way - we are doing it this week and it was delayed from last term. I really want to finish AOS1 and move on!! Weíve started equilibrium too and Iím just slowly working my way thorough it - it does seem pretty tricky though :(

SPEC:
Been going good! For the first time this year Im actually up to date and have been doing all the assigned textbook questions. Doing diff has been such a relief (Makes me miss methodsÖ) and its surprisingly been easy so far. Also, our SAC is coming up in like 3 weeks and OMG I literally forgot we had to do a SAC for this subject!! I am improving in spec though thankfully, and Iím enjoying it a lot more than last year.

Other random things:
- Iíve nearly finished my art final!! I CANT wait to finish it because Iíve been working on it for wayyyyyy too long.
- Ive got 2 SACs this week, English Oral Due and 2 quizzes.
- The sunshine this week made me happy
- Iíve been vegetarian for over 2 months now and its been the best 2 months ever.
- I need to start doing more physical movementÖ..
- I like having my cats company during the school day :)

Anyway, thats it from me today! I hope everyone has a wonderful week!!!

It's nice to hear from you again Arty!
Glad to see that you are enjoying online schooling, there really are so many benefits with all the free time left over. Have you been doing much in your spare time?
I remember when I did some physics in year 9, magnets was the one topic I could never get my head around, no matter how hard I tried. So good luck!

That happened to me with my chem SAC, it was delayed from last term so we only really did it the first week back. Yeah equailibrium, has been interesting to say the least. It does appear to be the hardest concept wise, and some of the practical elements are quite tricky, it took me a little while to get ICE under my belt.

I would love to see your art piece once you have finished it (only if you're comfortable sharing it), I think it's great to see more of the creative subjects and projects of the forums.

I need to start doing more physical movementÖ..
If that isn't a relatable quote I don't know what is!
And your another cat person, yay. I swear it is split pretty even on atarnotes with people being either a cat or dog person. Although they are cute, I find I am getting less work done when they are around, they have a tendency to sleep on my work, or laptop. How about yours?
Good luck for you chem SAC this week!

I get the feeling of a sac being pushed back! I have my second AOS1 bio sac and honestly I just wanna move on! Good luck for chem Iím sure youíll do great! I also have a Chem sac this week but on electrolysis (for some reason our school did AOS 2 backwards so weíre learning dates of reaction and equilibrium this week). Woah is your school up to language analysis already?!?!? Our school is having the text response sac this week. Itís amazing that your up to date with spesh....wish I could say the same for methods

Aww thanks so much for replying Geoo! Tbh I haven't really been doing anything extra in my spare time, apart from the usual, watching Youtube and doing activities with family. I did however do a bit of crochet, baking and drawing. The main thing however, is I'm not falling behind in my subjects, as this happens during school whoops.

And I'll def need the good luck ah ha!

Oh no.....I feel so behind since we've barely started it! Its been pretty bad having our SAC pushed back so much since I've been studying for that without learning new content.....

I'll def share it when I'm done! I'll just hold off until the end of the unit because no one from school has seen it yet - thank you!!

Good luck for you chem SAC this week!
Honestly....my cat is such a scaredy cat! She usually comes when I'm doing work but she rarely stays for long. After a few pats shes satisfied/tries to come on my lap. I really wish she'd just sit on my table and wait but she never does lol (maybe coz its glass)? Shes suh a scaredy cat and never comes when online classes are on because shes scared of the peoples voices ah ha. Cats are the best though!

Thank you!! Hope you have a great week Geoo  ;D

Good luck for your chem SAC too! Oh thats strange ah ha - how are you finding electrolysis? My school is no where near language anaylsis - its just the area I struggle with the most and need the most practise with . We havent even started learning our text for text response!
**Sending lots of good vibes for methods!!** Reach out if you ever need help/motivation  :D

Have an awesome week!!

Wait I just realised we did AOS 2 backwards because electrolysis relates better to galvanic cells which was the last topic in AOS1.

Hey Hey Arty!! ;D

Amazing to hear from you and that you are doing such a wonderful job :D.

PHYSICS:
Motion has officially been finished! As much as I enjoy motion, I really exited to move on and get into some harder/interesting things. Magnetic fields here I come! Physics has been good so far - I finally got my mark back for the SAC we did last term, and considering the stress I was on those days, Iím happy with my score. (3% off the highest mark yay!) Anyway, I like Physics and Iím excited about whats to come.
I'M SO PROUD OF YOU!! You did a spectacular job Arty and congrats for finishing motion! Oh yeah time to move onto Fields 8).
Let's keep that motivation going! :)


Other random things:
- Iíve nearly finished my art final!! I CANT wait to finish it because Iíve been working on it for wayyyyyy too long.
- Ive got 2 SACs this week, English Oral Due and 2 quizzes.
- The sunshine this week made me happy
- Iíve been vegetarian for over 2 months now and its been the best 2 months ever.
- I need to start doing more physical movementÖ..
- I like having my cats company during the school day :)

How on earth have you nearly finished your art final already... *insert shocked face*
That is a MASSIVE achievement and I'm so excited to see the final product. Make sure you show us what it looks like at the end! Having your pets around all day is a great feeling too (I did a cat pet day with my friend during a class and it was absolutely hilarious).

Good luck for your upcoming SACs Arty and I hope you have a great week! :)

**MINI UPDATE** - May 1st!

Hi everyone!! Thought I'd pop in with a small update today :)

So I had my Chem SAC this week on AOS1- and I'm not happy. (we got given the questions sent to us and had a 45 minute time frame to answer the questions on paper and send it back.) It was a really long SAC for the time frame, literally less than 1 mark a minute, and I dont think I breathed that entire time. I had studied so hard, and trust me, I knew all the content on the SAC, but it was not good. I managed to answer all-ish of the questions but I know that there was so much I got wrong. (Such as the fuel cell question.....which I completely looked over the fact that it was a ceramic electrolyte....) I am also not feeling good about it at all since I had NO time to check over my calculations - which scares me so much. Worst thing is, I literally have the answers to my SAC in the same room as me. Scary! I thought I could manage a 90 after the SAC, then realised I had no chance at that and was hoping for an 80, but now, I'm literally thinking itll be like 70 or something. And worst thing is, this SAC is worth MORE now!!!

Okay, enough ranting about that SAC.

Kinda disappointed in some of the study design changes tbh. English oral was one of my hopes in redeeming myself, and its worth barely anything now! Not to mention, I literally submitted that todayÖ.alsoÖÖthe language analysis SAC that I have in just over a week is worth more now. Why? WHY?
With Spec, Iím sad that statistics was taken out as I really enjoyed it in methods last year and it literally SAVED me in the exam!
With Chemistry Iím sad because most of the food chem stuff was taken out and it was what I was looking forward to the most - but Iíll probably just learn a bit of it anyway.
Physics Iím not tooooooo fussed. At least its one less topic to study (kinda)

Anyway, Iíve got no SACs for next week so Iíll work on getting a a bit ahead in Chemistry and Physics. The good thing about me being at home is Iím not behind in anythingÖand Iíve actually been doing the textbook work for spec rather than skipping over most of itÖ

Im going to chill now and create some art for funÖ.its been a while since I drew something that wasnít for my folio!

Hope everyone has a good weekend! (And stay warmÖ.winters coming and Iím not sure how I feel about that)

Are, are we the same person!
Hey Arty,
I am right with you there; food chem was arguably one of the most interesting aspect's of 3/4 chem that I was really looking forward too. It is such a shame that it will no longer be included, but we still have the textbook, and can take a quick peak at everything which is good at least!
It's a bummer what happened with your chem SAC, I am in the same position, except it was the teachers that kind of ruined mine. You can strike back next time, and try to make the most out of unit 3, and lets hope for the best in unit 4,
i'm sure you nailed your calculations!
What was your oral on? It's sad that it won't be worth as much, it was also my chance at redeeming myself, so I totally feel your frustration! Good luck on you language analysis, i'm sure you will do great!!!

To be honest, it feels like winter already and we haven't even finished autumn!!
Stay warm too, and enjoy your week free if SACs.

Hey hey Arty!! ;D

First of all, congrats for making it through your Chem SAC! Big achievement right there and just like geoo has said above, I think we are all the same person 🤣.
I think you did an amazing job I'm sure the SAC is a lot better than you think it is! (Plus I'm 100% sure your calculations are all good)

Good luck for your language analysis SAC! You can do it and try not to think about how much it's worth now due to new study design changes.
Have a good week Arty ;D

I almost forgot this journal exists! So sorry for not replying!

Thanks for the support Geoo and ashmi! It really means a lot to me. Yes - we've got this! We will get through the year on a high!

**MINI UPDATE** - May 15th
Hey AN! Long time no see! Thought today would be fitting for an update.

 I've got 2 SACs next week, Physics and English. The physics one is a test on fields and honestly I'm not the biggest fan of this topic. I think I understand it fairly well but I do need a lot more practise. I can already tell this weekend will be a weekend of smashing out countless amounts of questions!

My language analysis SAC is now this week and I'm feeling meh about it. Language analysis and I aren't the best of friends, but we are slowly building our relationship. Hopefully we'll be best friends by the end of the year! I've done 2 practise essays and I'll try get 2 more done before the SAC, as I really want to get 80 or above.

So.......the specialist application task is a thing. In LESS than 2 weeks. And we still have to cover half of chapter 7 and all of 8. I'm trying to get ahead but its kinda difficult when excercises take forever and I have other things to do! Its SO soon!!! Also its the week we get back to school so I'm not really happy about that. Honetsly this was the one SAC I wouldve love to do at home, as I feel so stressed in spec class lol. But all in all, I'm kinda enjoying spec to an extent which is a good thing. Diff was really easy and fun and made me feel good about my capabilities in spec lol.
But I hate trig functions so much......

Anyway, about going back to school. At first I was really disapointed as its SO SOON! I was kinda expecting another week though. Online schooling has been super good to me, as I feel like I've done quite a lot of work at home, and have been motivated. Not to mention, having spare time has made me more focused during my schoolwork? Because I get to sleep in I'm more ready for the day too. I like being able to work at my own pace, and SACs at home are chill! At school everyone talks about the SAC as soon as its done making me stressed ah ha. I'm also not tired 'after school,' so I get more done then too.
But that being said, I'm also feeling okay about school starting now. I think it'll be nice to finish off Year 12 with a bang, rather than thinking you were home for most of Year 12 if you get what I mean. Also, sometimes I like the fast paced nature of school. Being at home can sometimes feel like a drag, and that all the days have been merged into one big clump. Also, isnt it crazy to think we've been home for longer than our summer break? I kinda feel like it went fast!

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great weekend (and enjoy the sun we have!)
