Hey angrybiscuit! I'm so happy you updated  ;D

Quote
I feel as though Iím not doing enough. Not enough practice exams, not enough revision. Iím finally given an opportunity to be able to complete copious amounts of exam study (i.e. quarantine and online schooling) but I didnít do anything significant. If anything I am studying less than I have last year. I keep pinching myself for not taking the opportunity while I had it.
I relate so much to this! Everyday whenever I take a few hours break I feel the back of mind yelling at me to the point I can't even enjoy the break. I can't wait to go back to school so I don't have to feel like I have to study 24/7.  You're doing great, just hang in there until school starts.

Have a great one, looking forward to the next update, and hopefully frustratedbiscuit will turn into delightedbiscuit <3

Heyooo angrybiscuit!
Was so excited to see an update! And CONGRATS on getting your Ps! Enjoyyyy the new found freedom!!

I seriously have nooo clue how it became October.....like imagine....if COVID didn't exist we'd be doing our English exam in LESS than a month. But still 37 days seriously scares me...

Doing exams are so bloody frustrating nowadays. I get rid of a lot of questions because theyíre not in the study design but sometimes itís difficult to discern whether or not itís not in the study design or itís just because I really donít know it myself. Grr my problems seem so small compared to others but Iím always so frustrated. Hence Ďangryí in my name though it should be Ďfrustratedí but it doesnít have the same ring to it.
I seriously feel you on this - it really annoys me there's no full VCAA exams we can do. I hope you'll become a happybiscuit soon!! Just keep at it, I'm positive everything will work out in the end.

Anyways very excited to go back to school though I canít help but think that staying at home during term 4 to do practice exams is more enticing. But Iíve been rotting in my study for some time now so Iím more excited than bummed out
Me too. As much as staying home to do exams sounds good, I think we'll all benefit from getting some motivation from school.

Thanks for the update - I'm sure everything will work out soon! Have an awesome start to the term  :D

Hey hey angrybiscuit!!🥰

I'm so excited to see a journal update!

This is a big MOOD. You are definitely not the only one that is experiencing this. It feels like I've taken a short nap in August and then BAM we are in October!!😕
Also, congrats on getting your P's!! That is a big achievement and definitely worth celebrating over😃.

I can spiritually relate to this! It is SO frustrating trying to do exams to time, especially since sometimes you can't tell if something is in the study design or not. It can get quite confusing too and don't worry, you are not the only one who is angry 🤣. Sometimes I can't tell if VCAA has made studying for exams easier or harder...

Let's stress together bro😭. English is that one subject that no matter how much you try, it creeps up on you SUPER QUICKLY. It's like trying to run away from a racecar sometimes🤣
On a side note, the hypothetical journal title "angrybiscuit needs to learn to be kinder to herself, sheís trying but she cannot help but hate herself: a saga." literally sounds like a whole television series you would binge-watch with a good batch of popcorn. Give yourself some self-love cause you deserve it🥰

I absolutely believe in you angrybiscuit and that you will most definitely reach your goals in style!! You have GOT THIS and it is totally alright to have a break when you need it. Thank you so much for the journal update and I'm defs looking forward to seeing another one in the future🥰
Hey ash!!
Your racecar english analogy is SPOT on... 22 days now omg. October has 0 chill. On a side note, it would be a good series only my life is reality TV worthy HAHA

Thank you so much for your encouragement! Hope exam period is treating you well also.

I've been waiting for an update! ;D

I looked at the date and wow :( it still feels like the middle of the year to me. Time goes so fast and everything is just going by like a blur. Congrats on getting your P's! I'm nowhere near 120 hours, so hopefully I can drive more on the summer holidays.

I definitely agree, honestly, a part of me will always wish that study designs weren't cut because it's just so much harder. I have so many gaps in my knowledge so I can't tell if it's off the SD or if I just have no idea, so I can totally relate to that. And that English exam is slowly creeping up on us... we can all share our hate for this subject together. I'm so glad I'll never have to write another text response essay in my life after this year. 37 days are going to go by in a blink though 😭 - I need more time!

Same, I absolutely cannot wait to go back to school! Although the extra revision is nice, I think I need some motivation and I want to see my friends too.

Have a lovely weekend angrybiscuit, and don't stay angry for long!
Hi whys!
Getting your Ps is a must. The freedom is great ;D so make sure to get onto those hours after the exams!!

The only thing that is getting me through exam revision is the fact that in 22 days time will be the last time I will write a ridiculous comparative/text response/argument analysis EVER. I cannot wait till "PENS DOWN" and I am freee from english 😂. I am so glad I have someone to lament over English, it is truly horrible.

Thanks for your reply whys! Hope exam revision is going well :)

Hi potato!!
Ahh yes, at this point in time I feel like if I'm not studying I'm wasting my time. But I'm learning, slowly but surely, that breaks are necessary and that I don't need to feel guilty over them.

Thanks for the reply, I'm a happier biscuit now :)

It's so difficult to wrap my head around the fact that if it wasn't for COVID, our english exam is in 11 DAYS. October is going 100km per hour in a 40km zone.....

Thanks for your kind words... hope exam revision period is treating you well <3
Thank you all for your kind words, your support means the absolute world <3

22 DAYS are you joking. I think I'm set for Section A and Section C, I am pretty confident I can write to time. Will it be good? Who knows, but as long as I can get an essay written in an hour, I'm all set. I am, however, very concerned about comparative. We did our SAC just over a week ago and what a disaster. I know, I know I'm lamenting over my disastrous english sacs once again but this one was definitely bad. It absolutely sucks to see people write 4-5 pages when you only do 3... I feel very unprepared for Section B and I hope I can improve with the time I have.

On a positive note (because we desperately need some here), my two maths are coming along nicely. I'm getting used to VCAA style questions and I'm content with how I'm travelling along. With biology and psychology, I am less confident but I'm getting there. I just need to fill in some gaps in my knowledge for Unit 4. It's a lot more difficult because of the study design changes but eh.

I don't usually do study score predictions because for my school, I don't know if they're marking too harshly or marking too easy. But as of right now here's how I think my scaled study scores will be in terms of rank (highest to lowest). Chemistry will be without a doubt my highest, so I'm hoping it will pull up my atrocious English ss.

Chemistry
Specialist
Methods
Psychology
Biology
...
...
...
English (duh)

That's all for now. Hope you're all doing well. Let's hope the restrictions ease up in time for us to have a COVID safe celebration/graduation... we deserve it.
