Wanting to succeed has always been in my instincts, I wouldn't say it's because I'm competitive, I think it is because I know my capabilities. It is now mid exam season and stress along with madness is definitely dominating my life. I definitely wouldn't say exams make me unhappy because I can cope with them, but I would say doing the things I have to do to the best of my abilities seems to stop me from doing what I want to do.

'Go the extra mile, it's never crowded' 
I constantly tell myself I can always do better, always improve and never give up which is an effective way of thinking but also proves draining. I know at the end of the day, the GCSE results I get won't determine my life in any way, shape or form but I can't help but want to do my best. The problem with me is I have high aspirations and if I don't live up to these little goals I set myself, I wont feel a sense of accomplishment. All I do and all anyone can do is try your best and believe in yourself... So good luck to anyone sitting exams!

I am so excited for the next 'period' of my life and I am filled with creative ideas to put out there for everyone to read, watch and comment on. Finally I can get free of what feels has been holding me back a great amount, but I know this is my time to do what I want to do so I will do just that.
