Work, work, work

Over the last few days I've managed to get a couple of things done! Impressive, I know! Yesterday I had my ECG and blood test at the doctors. They had to get the special nurse to do my blood test as my veins are so small and afterwards, as we were waiting at reception for a letter, I suddenly started feeling very sick and faint and had to get carried into a doctors room for a lie down by the nice young male doctor ;) I was soon feeling better and my dramatics had meant that Mum got the letter signed much quicker than would have happened otherwise!
At home, I've been working on my Sixth Form Essay (actually managing to gather some information and find some good points!) and also have written a first draft of the presentation Poppy and I have to give in assembly (although I have not heard back from the teacher who was supposed to be helping us yet and the headmistress wants a copy on Monday...) I have also made a lot of progress on my Peter Rabbit cross stitch (all the actual cross stitching is now done, I'm just detailing with backstitch) and got very easily distracted by the internet!
I have recently realised how close school is and how much I have left to do so I've been trying to focus on doing everything I need to e.g. Sixth Form Essay, BMAT essays, presentations about Anniversary Halls, getting stuff ready. As you can tell I'm slightly unprepared! I luckily have some fun stuff coming up too (Steph's 18th tomorrow and going to Cambridge on Monday) so hopefully it won't ALL be work...just the majority...

Theoretically I can drive...

So the past few days have been fun and as you may be able to tell from the title, I had my driving theory test this morning...and passed! To be honest I would have been embarrassed to have failed! If you've ever seen the questions that are on the theory test you'll Dad was testing me last night and had to ask if these were actually the questions they used as the answers are so obvious! Anyhow, now that that's done I've just got to pass the practical test...of course it might help if I'd actually had more than 4 lessons and was going to be allowed to drive before mid-October!
Other things I've done over the past few days: Tuesday night Caz and I went to see the Inbetweeners movie (good for something that's come form a tv programme but not exactly a great movie!), yesterday morning I had a doctors appt and stuff started to get sorted and today after my theory test I met up with Hannah and Ellen for coffee in Guildford after which we went searching for Steph's 18th birthday present.
I've also been starting to write a presentation for the first assembly of term (and first assembly in the new building) that Poppy and I have to deliver, attempting to plan my sixth form essay (on the truly fascinating topic of placebos) and not even starting my BMAT essays...fab! I have however made progress with uni decisions as I have now entered in my 2nd, 3rd and 4th choices to UCAS (Birmingham, Southampton and Bristol respectively) I just have to decided between Oxford and Cambridge for spot No.1!
