Let's Chat GCSE's, Hobbies and Half Term

I can't remember the last time I just sat here and had a little chat, I don't even think this is going to be interesting to any of you but I did just want to give a little life update.

Currently, I am on half term, two weeks school free which I am so super excited about. Saying that, I have got a bunch of coursework and revision to be getting on with. Art coursework is totally kicking my butt right now but I hope that it will pay off one day. The piece I am currently working on is an A2 canvas of my granddad in acrylic paint, I am finding it difficult but it is coming a long slowly. For revision, I am slowly easing myself into it, one subject at a time. Since I am in year 10, as soon as I come back I have four full days of exams almost like mocks so I am putting taking it very seriously at the moment. If you are interested in a revision post and some of my tips then do let me know in the comments and I will get that done for you.

Even though I have basically just said that my plate is a little full, I am going to spend my half term also writing up as many blog posts as I possibly can. Last week was the end of my Blogger Spill Tea series so that means no more Friday uploads anymore so now I am going back to two posts a week. Every Wednesday at 5pm and every Sunday at 10am there will be fresh content. Spring is now here and I am still a little stuck for ideas so if you could comment some new ideas then I would totally be up to writing them.

I am actually currently watching Riverdale as I write this, and I have to admit, totally worth the hype! Currently on episode 8 as I watch this and my brain is overloading in theories. On Twitter everyone has been raving about this programme and I can totally see why. Not going to lie, I mainly watch it because Cole Sprouse is just brilliant as the role of Jughead but the whole concept of the show is great. Definitely give it a watch if you haven't already.

With summer right around the corner, I am keen on getting into shape. Since giving up most of my dance classes and now only doing 1 hour a week, I have started going the gym more. I have not really done many fitness posts on my blog before but let me know if that is something you would be interested in. At the moment, I am going the gym about three times a week and I am super proud of myself for sticking with it. I am not on some massive weight loss journey, I am just trying the sharpen up a little bit in time for summer.

While starting new hobbies, I am trying to get back into an old one. Some good old reading was my favourite way to wind down but since being overloaded with a bunch of work, I never found the time for it. I have already managed to finish a book I was in the middle of and now I have started a new one, so I will get back to you once I have gathered some thoughts on it.
