End of phase 2

So far, I’ve had an incredible time at NCS. I’ve learned so many new things. I think that phase 2 has been my favourite phase because of the holiday-aspect that it had. Even though I was only a 20 minute bus journey from home, I felt as if I was finally away. I felt reallyContinue reading “End of phase 2”

The beginning of Phase 2

So, as we’ve learned, phase 1 was incredible. I had so much fun and I loved all the people I have spent it with. I’m so glad that I decided to push through with the experience because I think I would have been sat at home regretting it by now if I hadn’t. Don’t getContinue reading “The beginning of Phase 2”

End of Phase 1

Back in September, I was offered the opportunity of a lifetime. Now, at first, I didn’t really believe that it could be as life-changing as it was made out to be. However, I stuck with it and decided to give it a go. The assembly we had to announce what we’d be doing was aContinue reading “End of Phase 1”

Canoeing and Climbing?

By the way, this was meant to go up yesterday (oops) but I fell asleep whilst writing it. Sorry! Goodness, today has been a long but exciting day! I’ve faced a few fears today and I have loved every second of it. It’s been incredible. Despite spending a majority of my time in the poolContinue reading “Canoeing and Climbing?”

So, I was in a cave

Today has been an incredible experience. I have done things that I never thought I would never ever do in life. I have been able to overcome my fear of small and dark spaces. This was considered to be a big thing for me because my anxiety doesn’t allow me to try new things orContinue reading “So, I was in a cave”

Induction

Today was a massive through the roof anxiety day. I went to my first induction day and it was scary to think about. I’ve been worried about it for a little while because I knew that I would have had to meet new places and go somewhere new. We all know that the word “new”Continue reading “Induction”

Nervousness

It’s been a long day. You had an encounter today where you just suddenly felt really strange. There was a tingling sensation in your stomach and you kind of felt as if you couldn’t move. You began to tremble and words just fell out of your mouth. You were dreading what you were about toContinue reading “Nervousness”

And so it begins…

My exams are now officially over and I am so excited to get this show on the road. Here comes ‘my long summer.’ Over the next 12 weeks, I will be embarking on the mission of my life. Not only will I be attending NCS, but I will be attempting to spend the next fewContinue reading “And so it begins…”

My Long Summer

Famously, summer holidays for students tend to last 6-7 weeks with the exception of the year 11, 13 and University students. You see, we have the privilege of leaving school as soon as all of the exams are finished. For me, this is tomorrow (Friday 15th June) and I’m buzzed! I have been at theContinue reading “My Long Summer”

Grades

Blah, blah, blah. “Grades are so important, they decide your future.” How many times have you heard this? Countless times I have been told that they’re the most important thing in my life, but are they? We’ll find out later in the post. For the first 18 years of our lives, we are told howContinue reading “Grades”
