Hello, I apologies for not posting for the last few weeks! I have had lots and lots of things going on with school as this is what this post is all about. As I'm in year 9 I have to chose my GCSE options which is definitely not the biggest decision I will make but so far its been one of the most important. I think that a lot of people make it out to be a big effect of the rest of your life but honestly I don't feel like this will determine what I do with my life. I got three options as well as core subjects and computing which  instead of doing 3 lessons for 2 years, my class does 2 lessons of computing for 3 years. As I got chosen to do my French GCSE in year 8 & 9 I got the option of doing an AS level in French which is whats done in the first year at college. I finally made my decision on Dance, Textiles and AS French and trust me it wasn't an easy decision.

I think that decisions should be made by yourself and when you're on your own as they could determine very important things. Being influenced into doing something when you don't want to do it can be a problem but at the end of the day you've just got to do what YOU want.

If something is playing on your mind and you have a gut feeling that it's not right then go with your gut is what I say. For instance, my best friend has chosen Dance, Drama and Art which at our school are consider easy/soft subjects and as she's in the top sets for everything she knew that they'd probably want her to do one academic subject. However, she stuck to her gut and if they question her about it she'll be happy to say 'That is what I want to do' because she knows that those decisions are right. 

At the end of the day you don't know what will happen. I don't live by 'decisions are the most important things' because honestly anything can happen. Because I've chosen my options doesn't mean I'm any closer to realizing my future because life will take you where it wants to take you. 

Sometimes the wrong decisions will lead you to the right places...
