On a brighter note, it's not too long before my prom! I've been waiting for this for five years now and I almost can't believe it's here. However, I'm very unprepared in that I've only bought my prom dress so far! I still need to buy some jewellery (I think I'm only going to wear earrings), shoes and all the makeup I'll need as I'm going to attempt to do my own makeup! I'll hopefully do a blog post about the makeup I'm wearing, I'll show you my dress, shoes and hopefully the finished product too! But, the main issue I have at the moment is that I really don't know what to do with my hair. I'm thinking at the moment that I either want my hair in an updo or like Lana Del Rey. I'll put a few pictures below, so tell me which you prefer! My hair is long, straight, quite fine and brunette and I'm going for an 'old-Hollywood-glamour sort of look.
Please comment below and tell me your opinions!
Finally, college. The end of year 11 marks also the beginning of year 12. I've got two problems:
1. What college to go to
2. What subjects I should study
First of all, I really am not sure which college I should go to. One option is to stay at the college at my school. The positives of this are that the classes are small so I guess you get all of the help you really need, I have a good relationship with the teachers and I get on so well with my classmates. However, the results don't look amazing, I live about 20 minutes away (it takes 20-25 minutes to get there on the school bus but on public buses it takes an hour which is what I have to take when I stay after school) and some people say that this college does not prepare you well for university which is where I hopefully can go. The other college I live extremely close to, it's one of the best in the country, the results are pretty good, amazing facilities, great opportunities except it's a huge college, I'll loose some good friends going there and I hear that they don't give you as much help with your work. I've already done AS Religious Studies and I know how hard A Levels can be, so can any of you give me some advice about your experiences at college, that would be so kind of you! :)
Secondly, I'm not really sure on what subjects to take as there's so much talk on what's good and what's not and then, I don't really know what I would like to do in the future. I'd like to do four subjects. I'm debating between history, English literature, drama, French or classical civilisations. Tell me about what you did for A-levels and how you found your subjects!
Thanks for reading and I really would appreciate every bit advice you could give me as I really need it. I don'treally get the chance to talk to people about their college experiences, so it would be very helpful!
More blog posts to come after the 15th!
Lots of love,
