Getting Sponsors: uh, what? Spongebob??

All right I know that in my previous post I promised you a beautifully well-written guest post, but something happened today that I have to share with you! I can’t stand to keep it all to myself. And don’t worry, the guest post will come just after that.

First of all, what is a sponsor? Well when a company/business sponsors something it means that it is supporting the ‘something’ financially and in return the ‘something’ gives credit to the business/company by offering publicity.

This year, I’m part of the school’s editing team for the school magazine 😀 and we need sponsors to support the magazine. Money just doesn’t come out of thin air, you know.

An Ordinary Student Life

Hey guys! I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA often these days. So many of you are requesting blog posts from me and I thank all of you for your support 🙂 but as you can see, I have a life too outside of blogging: I’ll be taking part in Cambridge International O-Level Exams in October and I have to do my revision work.

So I was wondering what I could write… and well, as what’s all in my life for the moment is these exams, then why not talk about it? I hope it doesn’t sound boring, but I’d like you to know more about this 16-year-old girl behind the screen and get a glimpse of her life out there 🙂

Today, Friday 16 Sept, I got my official exams timetable. Ahh!! These papers just scare everyone! 😛

Cambridge O-levels examinations papers

My exams will cover a whole month, i.e I will start on the 10 Oct (with French Literature!) and end on the 15 Nov (with Economics paper 1!). Of course, I won’t have exams everyday lol!

Now I have to do my revision work, i.e I have to recapitulate whatever I learnt during the 5 years I was at secondary school… (don’t worry… we mostly revised what we did these last 2 years :P) and I have to practice a lot!

We usually do 8 subjects and they’ll extract the final results from 6 of these 8 subjects. Some people do 7 only and others do 9 or 10… (omg! they’re crazy!) In my school we were compelled to do 8 and I guess it’s the best choice. 🙂

There were 4 compulsory subjects: French, English Language, Maths, and Additional Maths.

I had to choose 4 others and these 4 should match each other. I chose, first of all for the 1st two places, French Literature and Literature in English. The two vacant places had to be filled either with the sciences or accounting sides… and I chose Accounting because I thought it was more scoring (in fact it’s not, as every subject has the same level of difficulty). Therefore I filled the 2 places with Economics and Principles of Accounts.

Next year we have to choose 3 main subjects and 2 subsidiary ones… General paper (GP) is a compulsory subsidiary subject. I chose this combination:

The 3 mains: French (Literature included), Literature in English and Maths.

The subs: GP and Sociology

I think it’s best I briefly tell you about how I’ll do my revision and maybe this can help you too to organise yours one day 🙂

How I organise my Revision Work:

First, let’s see:

I do 8 subjects and there are 7 days in a week.

English and French are subjects that you just can’t revise… you know it’s just about language, your vocabulary… no theories, no formulas or quotes to learn by heart. In addition, I’m fluent in both (well in oral english uh not really…xD)

Therefore, I’m left with 6 subjects and 7 days! Yeah! I’ll have a rest day!

I’ve planned it like that:

Monday = Add. Maths

Tuesday = French Literature

Wednesday = Maths

Thursday = Economics

Friday = Principles of Accounts

Saturday = Literature in English

Sunday = random work/free time!

It all depends on you and what you feel is best for you when you have to prepare yourself for an exams. Some I guess would just followe their instincts and randomly choose a subject to revise everyday… or when they feel like it. But I’m  not like that. I need organisation in my studies 🙂

I don’t know if you’ve read or understood all of this but anyway thanks for passing by and feel free to leave a comment.

IF you have anything you want me to write on you are free to tell me in the comment box below 😀

A Random Quote of The Day…

quote of aristote in greek

Alright I know you don’t read/speak Greek (do you?) therefore I’ll translate for you – thanks to google:

“He who can create, can destroy.”

Aristotle.

Well something like that 🙂 and it’s so beautiful and strong! One of my favourite quotes 😀

In fact the photo comes from a book my friend was reading and as I was learning Greek – yes I know some words lol – she asked me what that mean… but I had to search through google because it’s written in old Greek, not the modern one I was learning.

One day I even wanted to put my facebook page in greek and it was fun! Until I created my MakeupIsArt page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Makeup-Is-Art/251998058144343) then I was worried whether it would appear in greek too so I changed back to English 😀 though English is still a language I never speak except for oral exams xD

Anyway, I’d like to know about your one favourite quote! 😀 please comment below!
