Christmas has always been the holiday that I look forward to every year. For someone who doesn't really enjoy celebrating her birthday because she hates the attention, I love Christmas because I can celebrate it with family and friends without all the attention that comes with birthday celebrations. I'm not religious, so I enjoy Christmas for the celebration and the ideals it represents. I think it's wonderful that we prioritise the idea of . . .
In celebration of the ATARS that were released today for HSC students, I'll be discussing how to deal with disappointing exam results. It is inevitable that you will receive a disappointing result at least once in your lifetime. This can be for a job interview, a scholarship interview or just for plain school exams.

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be finally starting my own blog. This has been something I’ve wanted to do for a while and now that I’ve finally taken the plunge, I cannot wait to start sharing some of the tips and tricks I’ve learned as a student in my years of schooling.
