Post of The Month

Esme17 is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey. Hope you are doing okay?

I completely understand what you mean about feeling low mainly at night. like you said, It is probably because you have nothing else you need to be doing then and so have more time to think. Is there anything you could do that makes you feel slightly happier during this time (watch a film, read etc..)?

Do you know what is making you feel this way? I know you mentioned losing your nan which must have been really hard for you and Iím very sorry to hear that!

Iím not too sure what would be best for you to do in the situation but i would say it would be best to speak to someone like your gp because they could tell you for sure if it does need looking into more and even if it didnít, it would put your mind at rest a bit? I know how hard it can be seeing someone though so just make sure you do what feels right for you.

Remember you can also always come to the board to get support and to chats as well.

Let us know how things go? Iím sorry if this didnít help at all, I think I rambled a bit but I tried...

  • RANT (I dont expect replies)!

    So today I found out I got a D (49%) in my first maths assessment in exam year. You might think "wow, shes bothered about her first assessment", but I'm actually embrrassed to write that shockingly low number😂

    But what I don't get about schools is why on earth they give you a huge row for getting a bad mark... like, why not just help me to improve😂 and now my tracking is going to go down😂😭

    and if I'm getting D's in my assessments now, and mocks are in January, I probably won't be much better by then. Thing is they've set my target grades really high, so of course I'm under pressure!!

    Sorry, rant over.

    Sorry you feel so upset from this grade. I get what you mean about the teachers not being supportive. Have you went and spoke to one of your teachers about it and asked what you can do to improve?

    Just because you got a D now, it doesnít mean you will get the same in your mocks you have a few months still to work on what your struggling with and get support and hopefully when it gets to your mocks you will feel ready for it.

    Also, as someone who had already been through gcseís. Donít worry about your grades too much. I panicked soo much during my exams and now I realise that I shouldnít have got so worked up about them.

    You can only do your best!

      Thank you so much Esme. I spoke to my maths teacher yesterday and she as helpful, but it's the support woman (who I have previous and ongoing problems with) who was the main problem! But that's a whole other rant!

      Again thank you do much!
