Hi Chocolatemilkshake,
Congrats on your amazing score in bio! Would be interested in hearing your predictions and aspirations for your study scores this year.

Thank you Emily! See below  ;)

Chapter 2: So some January aims

Title speaks for itself I suppose. Iíd like to be able to look back at the aims I had at the start of the year and see how close (or how very far away) I was to achieving them. To be honest, itís hard to guess or predict what is achievable or not for me, as while I have a vague idea of the different cohorts, Iím not super sure where I fit in.

Chemistry
✩ Aim: 46 ✩
Chemistry is one of my favourite subjects so I really want to reach for the stars and see where it takes me. I have a little bit more confidence in Chemistry than my other subjects simply because the SAC structure and the weighting of the exam is the same as Biology. I also have the same teacher that I had for Bio last year, so I am familiar with her style of teaching. 

English
✩ Aim: 45 ✩
Unfortunately this aim does not stem from a passion for the subject but mainly from a ďit needs to be in my primary four :(.Ē All in all, Iím really hoping, that I get a motivating teacher who has good feedback and is okay to mark a lot of my practice essays. I actually really enjoyed reading the english texts Iím doing (especially Station Eleven) so hopefully this will also get me raring to go on the essay writing.

French:
✩ Aim: 36 ✩
And here comes frenchÖ I definitely need to continue to work on my grammar, listening skills and oral skills - essentially I need to get way better at everything. Iím scared that Iíll procrastinate French for my other subjects, as its homework is less structured and easier to ignore than something like maths. While I'd absolutely love in the 40s, I know in my heart that a 36 would still be a great achievement for me.

Methods:
✩ Aim: 45 ✩
Iím excited for methods, Iíll update you on how itís going throughout the year (if I remember/have time). I have a feeling Iím going to make a few stupid mistakes on the exam.

Specialist:
✩ Aim: 40 ✩
I know this is probably impossible (well for me), but hopefully hard work and my decent maths foundation will aid me. I really enjoyed Unit 2 Specialist (scores ended up being better than methods). Either way, if I end up with high 30s in December this year I will still be very satisfied.

So who know where this shall lead? I will review my goals mid way through the year and make necessary changes depending on how Iím going. I go back to gym training soon which will be good (and sore!). Also. Iím kinda excited for school to go back again and to actually enter some hard core study. Especially getting lockers and homeroom classes, the start of the school term weirdly thrills me. Anyways, hope you are all enjoying January!

Hey Chocolatemilkshake!
Good job for aiming high for your subjects!

That's great that you have the same teacher! That's a good point. Although, even they are the same SAC structure, I am so scared for chemistry next year!  :-[ Everyone is saying that it's hard and I'm a really slow learner and looking at the  Heinmann textbook is giving me nervous breakdowns every now and then (because it's so thick!). Well, everyone says it's more fun than 1 2 so it should be enjoyable!

This happened to me on exam 1 and I felt terrible afterwards that the whole year had gone to waste. Everything I did meant nothing anymore. I think it would be a good idea to minimise silly mistakes earlier on so that your sacs don't suffer as well.

Glad I'm not the only one! The first day of school is always the most exciting because you meet all your teachers, get to know the class and just get everything set up and it just makes me more motivated for some reason lol.  :D

I look forward to more journal entries and have a great rest of the holidays!

Hey Choco!
Great to see what you are aiming for this year! Good luck and I know you will do exceptionally well! ;D I'm so late to finding this awesome journal

Also. Iím kinda excited for school to go back again and to actually enter some hard core study. Especially getting lockers and homeroom classes, the start of the school term weirdly thrills me. Anyways, hope you are all enjoying January!

Don't worry, you are not the only one who is ready to school again ;D. The very start of the school year (including the beautiful stationery shopping for new stuff) is a super weird feeling but I totally get you. Enjoy the rest of your holidays before it disappears :)

It's awesome to see that you are aiming high!
Chem is such a great subject, so its nice to see another person who is not only aiming high but looking forward to it. I am hoping that some of the bio will help out a little too. Is there any part that you are looking forward to? Unit 4 sounds the most interesting to me.

Good luck for year 12, I wish I had the same enthusiasm when it comes to starting, but I might just find my motivation later.
Super glad that you are enjoying your English texts!

Thanks for the advice Evolio, but those silly errors just like to creep into my exams. Also, can totally relate to feeling super organised and motivated the first few days of school (and then you reach week two ::))

Thank Geoo! Glad to have a chem buddy too  ;D Not really sure what I'm going to like best, I'll let you know later in the year. Also, luckily you have three more weeks to find that motivation and start the year running (let me know if you ever need to borrow some of mine  ;)).

Hey Choco! ;D

Just checking in to ask how has the start of the school year been for you? Have you been up to anything exciting recently?

How have your subjects been and what are you enjoying at the moment? :D (Hope to see an update soon! ;))

Hey Ash, aw so sweet thanks for checking up on me! I honestly have wanted to update this for AGES, but have been so busy and just haven't had the chance. Finally though, here it is the much needed, very late update.

Chapter 3: Week one done
12/02/20

Hey guys, here I am again :) Year 12 has been pretty good so far. My timetable is fantastic as I never have more than three proper classes per day! Iím getting used to lugging my bag around again and everything. Also, loving being the oldest year level, having a mini kitchen and all. Yesterday I also got awarded my dux for bio last year, but the assembly was super long (although interesting to see some of the old year 12s come back).

Today we go on camp which is nice cause I won't get anymore homework till Monday. Now, here are some MUCh needed subject updates...

Chemistry
Iíve pretty much finished AOS 1 of Chemistry and will start AOS 2 soon. To be honest, this means in class I feel super unproductive and slow :(. Our first SAC is now less than a month away (**stress**), but itís not even going to be on gases, only on fuels and stoichiochemistry. Anyway, this subject is still definitely holding out as my favourite, itís so interesting and I love it, even if the class is slow. Anyone have any good places to derive some practice questions from?   

English
English is A okay I suppose. Writing creative pieces is surprisingly fun and Iím so happy that I got a good teacher! The sad thing is that Iím not with many of my friends, especially this one friend who is really really strong in english (sheís doing literature as well so... wow). I've been with her the last two years and it was fantastic because we could share ideas and everything. Now I donít have anyone to exchange ideas or feedback with in class and this is a little disappointing :(. All in all, I just really hope I can smash this creative.

French:
Ahh donít even talk to me about this subject, it's just too hard. Oral SAC is emerging way to quickly for my liking.

Methods:
Methods is cool but I really want to start working ahead of my class. They gave us a practice test for chap 1/2 and it was SO easy. It kinda sucks that my school is so bad at maths. I need to lift my game and start whipping through some exercises.

Specialist:
I like the Specialist class because itís so small (only 6 of us)! But the problems take me forever compared to methods. Our class just did a small test on vectors and now we've just started Trig functions in class, (reciprocal functions take FoRever to draw). Also I just realised how competitive this subject is, wow, some people are actually incredible.

On a side note ó I stacked at training a few days ago and it was the best (I mean full on face planted from two metres up into the mat). I watched it on the replay but was devastated that we didnít catch it on film. Comps start soon which is nerve racking considering I have like zero of the skill requirements.

Well thatís it from me. I will definitely try and update this more often from now on (maybe every fortnight).

Andnndnd Iím out ... ✩ CM ✩

Chapter 4: Let's appreciate this moment: I haven't yet had any SACs
22/02/20

Salut and welcome to my journal if you have never been here before! Another update from me because I may be procrastinating plus you guys are awesome, so why not? Not particularly interesting but read on if you feel like it.

Chemistry
This subject has been too slow for my likely recently. We keep missing lessons (swimming carnival, camp, etc) and I personally have not been doing nearly enough revision for the subject. Itís funny how the teacher and class environment can have so much of an impact on how much you enjoy a subject. Iím going to try and smash some practice questions this weekend though (a challenge as preparing for english and french SACs take priority).

English
I have my creative writing SAC in 1.5 weeks, which is nerve wracking because itís my first SAC for the year but also not too stressful as we do receive the prompt beforehand. We are writing out creative on Like a House on Fire, and Cate Kennedy (the author) is coming in to speak to us which should be interesting. Her short stories donít particularly interest me as I find them hard to relate to sometimes, although I surprisingly do enjoy trying to write creative pieces in her style.

French:
My french oral is WAY to close for my liking. We have to convince our teacher, who is pretending to be our mother, that we are allowed to attend a concert on a weekday. Iíll let you know how I go, send me some luck. I think an oral, for me personally, is more daunting than say, a chemistry SAC, as you only have 3-4 minutes to prove to your teacher that you can ace french (stuff up for 30 seconds and itís all over :(). Then again, there are positives too ( i.e, itís only 3-4 minutes and does not require 80 minutes of concentration). Iíve volunteered to go first in my class, as this will give me two entire periods to do other homework and I won't have to stress for so long like everyone else.

Methods:
Itís weird not having any SACs till term two. Iím up to date in class but I canít tell if I am enjoying this subject yet or not.

Specialist:
We had a mini test and I got 88% which Iím pretty happy with (especially since I made some stupid silly mistakes, so at least I knew what I was doing). Then again it was relatively easy and I feel like I really need to lift my standard if I want to feel comfortable in specialist. Our class is just finishing up circular functions.

See ya and thanks for taking the time to listen to my somewhat generic life. Shall update again soon (probably after my english and french SACs so I can let you know how I felt I went). Also, my first competition is the weekend before both of my SACs which kind of sucks a little bit, especially since I have to travel quite a while away for it (any tips on how to be productive in a car?).

:) :) Have a fantastic week everyone :) :)

Hey Choco! ;D

It's amazing to see that you are doing so well! (even better there are no SACs yet). Awesome job on the Spesh test!

Good luck for your English and French SACs! I'm sure you will do great and don't stress. :D
Loving this journal and I can't wait to see another update sometime soon.

That takes bravery my friend! Good luck on your SACs coming up, i'm sure you do great with all the prep you have done. Since I haven't done a language, your french SAC kinda dose sound scary to an outsider....

Did you enjoy like a house of fire? I haven't gotten around to reading it yet, and I have heard mixed things and I was wondering what you thoughts are.

Haha it IS scary. I didn't mind Like a House on Fire but I'm not really a short story reader and many of her stories are hard to relate to (for me personally). Some of the stories are better than others. Good luck reading it though!

Chapter 5: Not feeling too bad
11/03/20

Hey AN,
Thought it was about time I did another update, how has everyone been? Honestly, this term has gone so quickly, I canít believe holidays are so soon. Today, I officially finished my last SAC of term one EVER and thus have finished (and survived) all first three SACs (English, French and Chemistry). Three down 19 to go :))

CHEMISTRY SAC
This is probably the one Iím most disappointed with (did it today), both with my performance and how the actual sac was written. Not only did our entire chemistry class feel very underprepared, the sac tested content that was very VERY loosely on the study design, and wasnít particularly broad. Furthermore, there were zero calculations involved and so much writing (honestly non-stop for 50 minutes). I KNOW that Iím probably going to lose marks for small stupid mistakes for having to rush answers and also due to fussy marking, which makes me even more disappointed. (If you are in my chemistry class at school, first, donít judge this journal please, and second, what even WAS that SAC?) Anyway, I finished all the questions, did my best and I donít think I could have done any more study that could have prepared me for such strange questions. Overall, at least itís over. Now let's just hope I did better than I thought.

ENGLISH SAC
Iím definitely nervous for the score but I was really happy with my creative piece (that I did on Cate Kennedyís anthology of short stories) as well as my written explanation. It was a little bit last minute but crossing my fingers
Spoiler
(please please be 90+ percent)
Iíll let you guys know when I get it back.

FRENCH SAC
I was most happy with my french oral (very surprising), which was last week. The questions she asked were pretty simple and I made very few grammatical errors (rare for me). In fact, relistening to my oral I feel even more confident with how I did. All in all, pretty satisfied.

Methods/Specialist
Not much happening, the content we are covering in methods is relatively basic, I just have to start working more ahead of my class. Finding specialist quite difficult but hopefully I can put some more work in this weekend and gain even a tiny bit of confidence (questions take me FOREVER, I'm not really used to having to put so much work into simply understanding the content of a subject).

Iím also in the middle of comp season at the moment, which means Iím only just staying on top of school work (as competitions are usually a full day thing, especially when they are long drives away).

Thanks for reading everyone! If you guys have any random questions for me to answer I'd be game considering I don't have too much planned for tonight  ;D ;D

**Mini Update**
20/03/20

Curious to know who is now doing online learning instead of going into school? Next week my school is going to online learning but the Year 12s are required to come to class still, which I think is a good initiative (but that also means I have to watch my sister get to do homework in bed while I have to catch the bus to school) :( The school is going to feel so empty!

Anyone else studying Station Eleven? The irony! It's about a flu pandemic that wipes out most of the world. In fact, there is one scene where a character gets seven shopping trolleys full of items. It makes me laugh a little.

That's pretty much it! Unfortunately competitions have been cancelled, but I landed a new skill on floor yesterday which was super exciting. Also, I still haven't received any SAC marks back.
