So, I literally haven’t been on this for over 6 months and I really need to start doing more posts…
But anyways, I did the Police work experience and it was brilliant!! We started off just really having a day of asking questions then started watching these videos of a crime and what they put in place to find out possible suspects for this burglary and on the last day we got to do an interrogation! It was so much fun and would realllllyyyyy want to do it again. I met a bunch of really nice people (we sat outside each day and due to the heat wave I think I was literally boiled.
Year 11! I’ve barely been back three weeks but am definitely NOT looking forward to the rest of it. For some reason the teachers have to keep mentioning to us that ‘your GCSE’s are in 9 months’. Do we really need to be reminded? I think it’s permanently on people’s minds, whether at the back or front, anyways. To make this even better I now have early break and lunch, so have 2 lessons after lunch rather than 1- it just makes the day seem so much longer. I honestly can’t do any of my option lessons, I enjoy them but talent-wise, I have absolutely no idea why I chose them aha. I tried downloading Duolingo over the summer which may have helped for French a tiny bit but I’m honestly still hopeless! This time in 10 months though, it will all be over… I guess then to start again with whatever I choose to do afterwards. I’m probably gonna have a look at each of the options I have (sixth form, apprenticeships, college) as I’m not sure between like 3 completely different things of what I want to do in the future;
Police (obviously you probably guessed that considering the work experience but yeahhh). I have literally always wanted to do something along these lines. It would be so enlightening and every day would be different.
Journalist. I love English language (like the story writing bit (may post one soon) and reading and hopefully that would allow me to travel? I hope so.
Caterer. I really enjoy cooking especially like pasta, bread, cakes etc so maybe I could get a job in that?
DREAM JOB: like, this is my ultimate dream. I would retire at age like 30 having saved like loaddddsssaaaa money from one of the first 2 jobs and buy a campsite in France and work there- I would love this so much!!!
In the summer holidays, I went to Woolacombe (camping) which was sooo good- for the first few days there were amazing waves but then after the storm they seemed to die down a lot, which was kinda annoying. As we were staying in a tent, storms aren’t seen to be our best friend at that point. My dad got up and had to peg down the tent about 5 times during it and our tent was shit. It decided to leak everywhere, breaking my phone which just happened to be in the place where one leak was, and now I have to charge it on this special charger where you take the battery out and charge via that. We went on a 18 mile bike ride along the Tarka Trail, which (I’m not sure if I really have to say this), was just a titch too long (and tiring). Have you ever tried Coasteering? (or Canyoning for that matter) It’s so much fun- we did it in Ilfracombe and jumped off rocks, slowly getting higher and higher until half the group backed out. At some points it just didn’t look that high from the top, but when you are jumping, I can assure you that it feels like you are for agggeeesss. Also a bit of climbing and rock scrambling is involved.
Hope everyone had an amazing summer (although it’s over now)!!
