Infinity Clings On


Recommended Posts

BREAKING NEWS:

The throne taking of last challenge has been delayed as Emily Corvo insteads fights for survival on the streets of her once kingdom. 

NEW NEWS:

Infinity has exactly two months before they disappear off for their gap year. So, these eight weeks shall be high focus on being the strongest and best they can be before jumping on that plane.

 

 

CHALLENGES :

 

Survival Tip #1 - Food

Exam season has started. Therefore, staying at home and binge eating has increased in temptation (it doesn't help that I can now make amazing pancakes). But diet is the biggest battle I face and dammit if I won't start making headway.

No refined sugar, no white flour, no cereal

 

Survival Tip #2 - First Aid

Your body becomes good at what it does regularly. I'm cycling for 50+ minutes in the day, but I need to do proper workouts. I've got a list. This will happen at 8 every morning.

5 min + workout.

 

Survival Tip #3 - Navigation

Exams are stressful, but I seem to try to ignore that they happen. Executive function is missing, so I need to get myself down and studying. I've got 9 exams after half term, and a ton of them are within a two week period. I need to be ready for them.

A past paper every day.

 

Survival Tip #4 - Team up

I'm not the best at posting, I'll be the first to admit that. I'm here to help, but I need to keep myself accountable, and try to help others as well. This won't work if we're not a community. WHAT TEAM?

Post on NF. (-HP per week missed)

Lol it's the final year before uni, so all of my A levels are culminating. 

I mean, I'm only doing three subjects, but each has like 2/3 exams each, and then I'm doing 3 retakes (done two already thank goodness).

SO MANY SAVE ME PLEASE

Okay, so thankfully I don't need to be redoing undergrad and can avoid the chaos you're experiencing. I'll be sending good vibes your way. Yikes.

It's pretty terrible, mostly because the UK education system is going through some reforms and I'm just escaping most of it, but I've got a couple extra exams as it's linear and the exams have a different specification from before and no-one knows how it'll affect our uni applications, so everyone is confused.

But I'm fairly certain it'll work out! Especially as I'll have the time over my gap year to figure it out.

But good vibes are much appreciated! :D (And may be hoarded)

That still sounds super chaotic and you get all the points for doing it.

Uni chaos will come in the future. I'm leaving that headache for future me. :P

 

But seriously, I think I was born already 6 years old, the number of times people assume me to be so much older than I am.

Though I've also got some fun korean genes to add to the mystery.

Tfw you're gonna go encourage others, but then realise that your thread is actually the last :P

 

I think I've made the decision to not join any minis this challenge, because I won't keep up with them and that'll spiral down. Might as well prioritise what I need to and feel embolded by that!

 

The study has gone well, and now I've just got four exams to really focus on - three of them for the same subject. So I'm optimistic!

Ran a mile yesterday, slowly easing back into running, and I think I shall keep it around that for now, when I do run. But walking and cycling everywhere still!

The diet .... well I had a sudden house party at a friends, and then ate bad the day after, and I had pancakes for dinner last night and breakfast today. Oops? So that's 4/7 that went down the drain, but the other three were pretty good, so this challenge should be alright.

 

But the weather in the UK has been so utterly glorious recently, had a picnic in the park yesterday ( though it did get quite blustery ) and it's really invigorating :D

I was 100% going to check on you today! But I was also wary of bothering you since you've got exams to study for. Which I realize now sounds silly since you're here anyway but that's how my brain works.

Ohhhhh I wish. 

 

I don't get my exams until August 17th !!!!!!

My last exam is June 29th.

Like

It actively destroys the soul.

And Its Worse for me because I'll be in South Korea at that point, so I need someone else to pick up the results for me so I can figure out uni things (if I don't get in I'll have to reapply over my gap year).

So I'm just not thinking about it :P

 

But you should 100% bug me at all times. I just .... haven't switched on the computer yet this week. :D

What are you planning on studying in uni?

I'm currently to do either Physics or a joint Physics & Philosophy course. But if I don't get in this year I might do something more like art history or do an adventure leadership apprenticeship. 

So many choices!

Physics is made of math and therefore evil. So evil. Godspeed. 

 

(I could have sworn I replied to this before. Maybe the math scared me away.)

I think you mean Physics is made of math and is therefore second to Godliness.

Hahaha I'm pretty sure we have different gods in that case. =P I did okay in algebra-based physics. Calculus is my mortal enemy though.

Math is chaotic neutral and not to be touched unless you are good or have no sense of self preservation.

And I've been getting up at 8am :P Though I've had a couple good walk run drills, and some fun cycling around.

Trig, differentiation, and integration actively try to kill me. I love statistics though!

Right now, exhaustion is hitting pretty hard. I'm starting the final fornight, I've done 5 exams and I've got another 6 to go. 

We've got a bit of a heat wave hitting the UK right now, with highs of 31 degrees, and I die when trying to go to bed now, though the sunshine is absolutely amazing. It's just making everything so lethargic and drawn out, and a lot of people have headaches due to the weather changes. 

The boiler is broken in the house, so I'm either burning or freezing when I shower, which is fun.

I just feel a bit drawn out, though I'm managing to keep up with 3/4 of my goals. The workout isn't as focused as it could be, but that the goal, isn't it? Not getting a bus pass this term was remarkably beneficial. Though the diet is suffering - simply due to exam stress, and a higher level of temptation with more people and things floating around. I also think I eat too much nuts and fruit - and their fat and sugar content aren't helping very much.

 

Still, I'm hanging on, and tomorrow's exam (maths) shouldn't be too bad, though Wednesday's is gonna be a kicker. AQA are just on everyone's butts for science exams this year. Who knows what will happen?

But I'm going to keep working and keeping my priorities, and looking forward to going on my gap year and leaving a lot of tis behind. (Though the stress of organising this year isn't amazing either, all of this is worth it.)
