Re: Have you felt sorry for yourself?

As far as your exams go, if you can't get 5 A-Cs at GCSE it may not be worth carrying on anyway. I believe you can retake exams whilst in your AS year, I know for definitely do English and Maths (I myself had to do my English exam three times to pass, one mark off twice).

I would seriously think of applying to a college now if you wish to carry on in the next academic year. You could however do what many people do, just take a year out at work and maybe retake some of your exams during the year. That way you could still apply for what you want to do, providing you pass.

Just give the exams your best shot, because you never know. I was absolutely useless at German at GCSE, yet I managed to get a C. I was also useless at French and I got a D, which is still a pass. I'd just revise a lot in the build up to the exams. Learn the command words of the exams so you know what the examiner is asking you to do, and not what you think they are after. I'd would take my advice on the command words, because last year in Geography I got 42 out of 105 (which is an E) in my Physical Geography paper, but this year I got 105 out of 105 (which is an A), simply because I knew my stuff due to revision and more importantly knew what the examiner wanted, although it is to be seen if I can do it again. However, just with that I am already guarenteed to better than last year and thats only with one exam (there are three in Geography: Physical Geography, Human Geography and Skills Paper).

Also as far as I am aware you can not retake the entire year. The courses would have changed and thus you would probably have to start over from Year 10. As I said I don't think you can retake the GCSE year anyway.

I'd find out the way you revise best. I revise best by making a list of what I have to learn and I make the word or phrase in blue text. Then I just read what I have to learn and then try and remember what it means. I also put the explanation next to it in black text, and after thinking of the answer, I'll see if I was right. I find that a useful way of revising, but it's different for everybody. Some do better reading, or writing out notes again, or writing cue cards or by listening.

My main problem has just gone worse. Let me explain.
I applied for this 2 A Levels equivalent course on Airline and Airport operations, but when I went to the interview they said my target grades were bad, so they will sign me up to a Travel and Tourism course instead, which is equivalent to 5 A-C's. Now I have started revising and stuff, but I have come to the conclusion that there is no chance that I will get over 4 C's or above. That to me is a disaster. My parents will be severely disappointed, so will lots of my cousins. And furthermore, I would not be able to do ANY course at LBA. I want to do that course so much, that I haven't even applied to any any college, etc. Where will I go after I hit reality in the Summer? I surely do NOT want to do Year 11 again. I'd rather die.

Oh, and LBA is an airport.
It's as simple as focus...

If you were to totally ignore EVERYTHING & EVERYONE else to spend ALL you free time studying, do you have the intellectual capacity to absorb enough to get the marks you want?
Most people do...

If so, then you ignore all of the world for a brief moment in your life (be it a week, month, or year) to dedicate yourself to achieving the greater desire of the marks you need.

No-one will begrudge your absence for such a devotion.

It's as simple as focus...what do you want more, us, or the airport?

Re: Have you felt sorry for yourself?

Well I have been at an all-time low lately, I lost my job, my friends and my career in the police was all lost due to some twat manager. I got over it, I told them that their dismissal was unfair and I was going to sue unless they cleared my name and re-instated me.

Just keep your head up high and move on, try to conduct in a new hobby that always helps, like masturbating. Lol.

No, I'm about to do the course. But in order to do it, I must get 4 A-C's, which I doubt that I will get.

This is only a small part of all y problems.

Anywho...

I'm down all the time. Why else do you think I'm a pot head? (SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!)

I mean, there's good days and there's bad ones. But I've been a trainwreck since the age of 7. You'd be too if you awoke to find your oldest brother would never be returning home. A person, who due to your own childhood innocence was busted for possesing coke, and dispised you for it.

Since his death, periodicaly I get panic attacks. I'll be laying in bed and suddenly, out of nowhere, a numbing surge takes over my body. And the only thoughts that circle my head are "I don't wanna die" over and over again. I'd be fine with that if it were controllable...but it always comes without warning.

But to give a little sight into why I am the way I am, since his death (and the loss of my innocence) I've always thought I had to cheer people up. Feeling the way I did at the time, I wanted no one, nor my self, to feel that way again. Not if I could help it, that is.

Sure...there's a time for laughter and there's a time for seriousness. But feeling that low at that age, it kinda hazes the fine line. So from then on, life to me was one joke after another. Unfortunately, not everyone likes a joker. So it flanked me a lot of shit.

I know on here I project the image of a happy go lucky prankster. But in life, I'm hardly anything close to it. (Anymore atleast) Not because that's not who I really am, but thanks to a little incident stemming back when I was 17.

The time when my mouth earned me a hospital visit. Not directly, but it didn't help matters.

I was hanging out with a group of friends at the local park near our houses. I took off by myself on my bike to head home. Half way there I stopped at the video store to get a soda. Before I went in, a maroon Chevy Celebrity drove by and someone in the car screamed "THERE'S PUTT!". I was stoned and thought nothing of it.

So I got my drink and was heading home. Feeling suspicious because of the car, I took the road before mine. Bad choice. As I'm climbing the first hill, they fly past me. Still oblivious to what's about to happen.

I reach the peak to see four people lining the street at the bottom. At this point I knew something was wrong. But instead of turning back and making a run for it (cuz that'd be the easy thing to do) I barrel ass it down the hill. I don't know why.

Maybe I thought I'd make it through'em? Maybe I thought I'd jump off my bike as it drove straight into one of'em, and I could take the rest? To this day, I couldn't tell ya what I'd planned. But I can tell you what happened.

I reached the bottom of the hill, and found myself flat on my ass. They were standing over me at this point, and said "you wanna talk shit now?" "I don't even know who the **** you are!" And then the mugging ensued.

I had a chance to escape after a couple of shots. But, being stoned and enraged, and them calling me a ***** for screaming...(Yup...I'm the *****!) I felt I had something to prove.

I didn't think I'd take'em all. But I'd be damned if I didn't get a couple shots in of my own. So I charged the ****ers. One nut shot later and they realized they had to step up their assault.

So I'm laying there on the sidewalk, four tough-guys pummeling me, trying to get my wallet at this point. And finaly someone comes outta there house. 2 seconds after they got what they came for.

The moral of the story: When someone knows you, and you don't "know" them, and they beat your ass...your trust in just about everyone goes out the window. So the overly open, joyus ****er I was died that day. Leaving me a paranoid bitter shell.

The funny thing is, no one in my life's seemed to notice the change. Atleast they've yet to say so. But hardly a day goes by I don't think of both those incidents. And sure...there might be something I could do about it...but I've yet to figure out what. So meh. I'll just puff a bowl and await the next anxiety attack.

^^ I AGREE WITH THAT GUY! ^^

If I were a black man...I'd call my penis the Oreo Fun Stick.

Re: Have you felt sorry for yourself?

Here's the deal. You've got to come to the realization that YOU are responsible for your actions or inactions. You alone control and shape your 'destiny'. Unless you suffer from mental retardation, there should be no excuses for not achieving what you want.

One of the worst things you can do is feel sorry for yourself. I can say this, because I've been there. One of the biggest steps to growing up is to refrain from blaming others for your misfortune. I believe once you take the reins and take full responsibility of your success and failure, you empower yourself for the rest of your life. This isn't an easy thing to do and won't come overnight. One of the biggest obstacles you face, as does any human, is the very freedom of choice you have. With this freedom, comes the responsiblity of the consequences of your choices, which as I stated, is your burden to carry throughout life. This burden, however, is what makes us human.

This may not make sense to you now, but it will in time. Being young, you have the rest of your life to succeed or fail. You're going to succeed and you're going to fail. How you choose to deal with both will shape your life to a great extent. Remember that always.

You need to be able to understand the cliche that 'Focus shapes reality'. What you focus on inevitably becomes real. Gold Coast Pimp is right. Focus is key to success. Another cliche is 'Perception is reality'. How you perceive your environment makes it real. Your perception of your reality at this time is swayed far too much to the negative side. It is your duty to right that imbalace through choices that will generate positive consequences.

In the end, you must know that EVERYONE has experienced down times in their lives. If they say they haven't; they are lying. It's that simple. Life is a struggle; but it's the hardships that make us better people. You're not alone, nor an alien, nor a freak. You're a human just like the rest of us.

Re: Have you felt sorry for yourself?

Don't fall for that psychology crap, sometimes it's useful, sometimes it's not. Maybe you should try to talk to your teacher. If I didn't miss anything on this thread, I'm guessing you haven't tried talking to your teacher?

Re: Have you felt sorry for yourself?

If you're only 16, why are you worrying about applying to colleges? I waited until two months ago to apply to a college and I got my acceptance letter yesterday.

Man, I hate to hear that happen to you. I want to say, you shouldn't change the way you are but after something like that, I don't blame you. But maybe you don't have to change, just be more protective of yourself. They were just a bunch of poor pussies...
