Mock exams are a roller-coaster of emotions. Psychology was fine other than that I didn’t write enough, and didn’t know my arguments well enough to write more. I know full well I am capable of at least two sides of writing for topics I definitely get, but for now I’m not at that stage and there’s still plenty of time before the real exam.
Biology was a disaster. I know my theory well enough but my application is horrendous and I am being nice to myself when I say that!
General Studies is impossible to revise for, but I think I did fairly well on that.
Now I have three days to revise for Chemistry and I’m feeling good about it right now.
As if out of spite, my lamp broke. Just as I was about to settle in for the night. I turned it on and it just… Popped. Sparks and everything.
That little sphere by my laptop is the bulb that fell.
So, since I really needed it, I treated myself last night to one of the Etude House Masks from my 20Pc set: Damask Rose. Here’s a sweet and snappy review…
It really does smell of roses, and reminds me of the rose hand creams from M&S. I really like the designs on the packaging and this rosy one is ultra pretty. This one is a fairly simple moisturising mask and the scent is really noticeable when you first take it from the sachet. There’s lots of clear essence left over.
I think the fit was a little strange but I think I put it on my face a little too much to the right. I struggle to get positioning right with masks, anyway.
As another form of relaxation I picked up my knitting again, and finished a facecloth. The motivation for it was purely that I am totally into skincare now and need more facecloths to rotate. I have knitted all of mine (three) thus far.
That one got finished quickly after a few hours, so I was in need of something else, but I had run out of the cotton that I keep specially for washcloths. So instead, I decided I needed a headband to keep the hair from my face when I cleanse and do my skincare routine. I did have one previously, but ended up giving it away, and I already had a second on hold from last year…

I need a headband for keeping my hair out of my bloody face when I do skincare things. I mean, the #etudehouse Etti and Big Bow bands are popular right now but I'm so hipster I have to make one myself. Also because I finished my newest face cloth and have no more face cloth yarn. Also bc this is a project on hold from LAST YEAR. #rasianbeauty #kbeauty #knitting #knitstagram #instaknit #crochet #instacrochet #yarn #stylecraft

I’m trying to figure out how to embed so the instagram images align in the centre but it seems WP doesn’t do this. Sigh.
If you are an A-Level student, how are your mock exams going? What are you doing to relax?
Until next time,
