A hug can sometimes be the best medicine.

Well hello there.
Was sitting scrolling down my facebook newsfeed the other day and saw some rather depressing statuses, a facebook friend really wanted a hug. This may seem rather boring to you but to me it is a cry for help. Hugs, to me, help 101 problems that talking and what not don't. They show support, strength, and a unspoken trust between two people.
    Ok, now not every hug is done for this purpose however quite a few are. The simplicity of putting your arm around someone can give that person such vitality and protection that no words need to be said. Not only this, but they are simple. I may sound really soppy here but a good hug shows a good character.
   For a girl, the natural reaction to seeing someone upset or down is to give them a hug. It helps.
So if you see someone who looks a bit down, go give them a hug, or at least offer. It shows good character, goodwill and a compassionate side, all from one simple action.

To A2 and beyond!!!!

Well hey there.
 To fill everyone in, I've finished my exams. To everyone doing AS, this was such a great feeling.
Anyways, following exams, went on holiday to Malta for a week and now I've returned to school, to start A2. Gulp.

Started on Monday, its now Wednesday and I'm petrified already.
After having a 2 hour lecture about what is expected from an A level student and ideas about higher education, I finally started lessons where  what I was due to study for the following 5 weeks and    consequently the next year was outlined.
I couldn't wait to start ICT however what I've already done so far, is scary. Alot of mumbo jumbo technical stuff that I assume I will learn with time however at this present moment is like a foreign language. The coursework is even worse.
English on the other hand sounds so fascinating,  Child Language Acquisition, or in laymen's terms, how children learn to speak and develop full sentences and Language change, from like Shakespeare to modern day.
Biology was straight in with the next part of the course. Which looks interesting, suprisingly.
History was a gradual ease into A2, with a quick summary of the course then a task to help familiarise ourseleves with it.
 Today I also went to a higher Education Fair, which considering I've barely finished AS is an eye opening experience although there were some interesting courses and uni's.

So thats what I've been up to recently. Scary stuff. The thought of becoming an Adult is frightening.
