Sixth form: A new chapter


A new chapter in my life is starting. Now with high school and GCSE's out the way, I'm turning over to a fresh page. I remember when I started year 9, Sixth Form looked like the place to be. The sixth formers seemed to have some sort of authority that none of the high schoolers seemed to have. They were older looking, dressed in their own smart clothes, and kind of patronising. Soon that will be me. Sixth Form has come round so quick, and although I'm looking forward to it , I'm also crapping myself.

There are some obvious positives about Sixth Form, for example, you only take a certain amount of subjects that you get to choose. For me, this means no more maths lessons where I'm trying not to fall asleep and no more dreading sitting in an hour of German. Quids in! For anyone curious, the subjects I'm taking are Business Studies, Sociology and Geography. Good choices? I guess I'll have to find out. I also feel that sixth formers are a lot more respected by teachers; they're treated like adults and with a lot more respect. More responsibility is also a big thing that I've had stressed on to me, but although it can be seen as a positive, it's also quite daunting. Like we're expected over these two years to be turning into an adult, it's almost like our transitioning stage. Our two years to get our shit together. People around me will be starting to learn how to drive and will have jobs, will become legal to drink and like, whoa. I'm not ready for that reality yet. Also, A Levels scare the hell out of me because they are the key way of getting into University and they seem so difficult. I've done the stupid thing of making myself paranoid by looking at twitter accounts and hashtags to do with Sixth Form and I'm telling you now, it has made me expect the worst. There's no way to prepare myself, I know it won't be an easy ride.

Tis' a daunting time in my life folks. A time of change and blank pages that need to be filled. These next two years are going to be stressful as hell, but I also have hope that I'll meet some great people as well make strong friendships. This blog will be my means of updating you on the stress, the good times and the bad. I'm planning on writing a stationary haul because what blogger do you know that doesn't profess their love for stationary? I've even started a bullet journal, in hopes to sort my life out! I'm one of them people now! Who knows if I can make it last, but I'm really planning on it, and maybe I could do monthly posts on how it's going? Would you guys be into that?

Here's how the rest of this year is looking for me in terms of what I'm doing with this blog:

  • The usual blog posts I write obviously.
  • I've definitely took the idea of Blogmas into consideration, scary, but maybe if I plan ahead?
  • I've come up with some blog series but who knows if that will happen.
  • Guest posts!!
  • Could a you tube channel be on the horizon?


I hope you have a beautiful week my lovelies, sorry for this rambly post!
Much love,
Lauren

  2. I've just finished sixth form and gone straight into an apprenticeship (ew, uni.) I promise you it's not as scary as you think it is! It's great to have more freedom whilst still being at school, I'm sure you'll love it.

  10. Oh my gosh, best of luck at sixth form!! Your subjects seem really interesting, and I'm sure you will enjoy them!
    I chose college and a BTEC, rather than sixth form, but I can tell you that it's great, and moving on really helps you to feel more grown up. I hope you'll really enjoy it!! :) x
