Surviving so far.

School has been harder than I expected this year, but I've been trying to throw myself into it and my grades for Literature especially have been really good, so I'm cautiously optimistic for my university applications. We've been in the middle of the regular assessments but I seem to've done alright with academics and student ambassador work so far because I was invited to be on the Student Council! The first meeting was today and we got started on who wanted to run for which positions, so I put myself forward to be one of two Charity Officers (which, surprisingly, was by far the most popular choice - I expected President to be, really). My speech was received pretty well and it seems a fair few people must've voted for me since I just got a text confirming that votes have been counted and I got the role! I feel many bake sales and much sponsored silliness coming on already.
I'm quite disappointed that my low activity on the forums will clearly have to continue through the academic year ahead (save for a few bursts in low-work periods, anyway) but needs must. If I can pull off the grades I need and have been predicted so far I will be able to go to a very respected university! Fingers crossed.
