Teachers build up the hype of exams but when you really think about it, they have to, it's their job! So on that note, don't let a bad result or comment from a teacher knock your own self confidence. They don't actually know you, you just spend forty minutes listening to them talk for five days a week. Don't get me wrong, the majority are a great help and support but some aren't as much. I was told by one teacher that I should be a librarian..anyone who knows me knows that I'd be the most irritating librarian ever! I could talk for Ireland! My deputy principal also told me that I needed to stop dying my hair because I wouldn't be able to work in a bank with hair like that. I had no intention of working in a bank and even if I did, how would that affect him? He also asked me what people would think of the school if I went downtown with my hair like that. Ummm, they will probably think wow she has dyed hair just like the other 85% of the worlds population. Look at me now, no library, no bank and my hair is still frazzled within an inch of it's life from bleach and tint just the way I like it! Yaaaay! My hair is my thing, I'm the only person that can take that away from me.
So take a minute to breathe. Hard work always pays off for people who do need high points, and if you know that you don't need high points for whatever you need to do then just relax. I genuinely believe whats for you wont pass you. My dream careers have varied from Britney Spears to a primary school teacher. Both still equally achievable, Britney Spears with many singing lessons and primary school teaching through back doors, or college when I hit 23!
