Study Planning (or The Dreaded Procrastination Monster)

Exams are fast approaching, looming ominously over the free time of all and every student here at MAGS. We all have a simple choice. To study or not to study. It all begins weeks before the dreaded event with a simple thought, "Oh, it can wait.", "it doesn't really matter anyway", "I'll just do this one thing first". Sounds familiar? Then the loathsome monster crawls ever closer and closer, day by day. Its best friend is procrastination, defined by the Oxford dictionary as the action of delaying or postponing something. In this case; study. And then the big day arrives, faster then you expected it and catches you off guard as you stumble through a mess of  the forgotten details and misconceptions that makes up the entirety of your knowledge of the topic. That is to say, that your exam does not go well and you probably failed. As you leave the exam room you ask yourself "Now why didn't I study earlier?"

We all know this feeling and no…

Hello!

It is that time again the time when young teenagers are pressured to make choices about things that won't even be happening for THREE more years! Yes. that's right. I have to choose subjects that will take me all the way through to university. A university that I may or may not be attending in 2 or 3 years. That is a very big weight on my shoulders - a big weight on all our young shoulders!

Personally I have chosen,

Design for Print
Music
English ( Enriched )
Maths ( 11MT1)
Chemistry ( Enriched )
Biology ( Enriched )

Just to be clear: I DID NOT choose any of theses subjects because of my FRIENDS. If you are worried about variables like that, then you should just eat some concrete and toughen up. You are bound to know someone in your new class or there will be someone else in your new option class with no friends, AND then you can make a new friend and BAM a whole new group of friends. Remember a stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet... but don't try to make frien…

Top 10 Movies and TV YOU should watch these Holiday's

TV

10. Doctor Who - 7.30PM Sunday's - This show has already aired a bit, but if you want to jump on to this series, this is the best season to start in the middle of as all but two episodes of the show are single story, one-shots.

This series has been my all time favorite shows since I was four years old, all around this has been a great show 50+ years in the running (well, not really since it was canceled for 16 years before 2005) falling on a few rough patch's as anything does during the sixth (Colin Baker), seventh (Sylvester McCoy) and eleventh Doctor's (Matt Smith, yes, Matt Smith... that series 6 was appallingly bad) run, but it has picked itself up in stride this season with a great new Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and a great new companion - Danny Pink.
This is on of the best sci-fi shows of all time and you have to watch it a least once in your life. It is a mix of horror, sci-fi, comedy, adventure and historical fiction and a 88 percent great show.
