Sometimes, Stress is a Good Thing.

How To Survive Results Day

Hey guys! For students in the UK, who have been doing their GCSE's and A-levels, August is the month where we find out our results.

That's what I worry about when I'm away from my blog for too long, because I get out of the routine… Continue reading (Slightly) Less Stressed
