How have you felt about this year?
I have loved this year. I was particularly enlightening because I found out last summer during our Shakespeare summer that I love to perform and this is becoming one of my passions.
What have you learnt about yourself this year?
I have discovered that I can do anything if I put my mind to it.
Hard work pays off.
A compromise can be reached in almost all situations
Family relationships are incredibly important, and preserving them is more important than having my own way.
Having a boyfriend isn’t everything, even when your twin has one and you don’t 🙂
What are you most proud of this year?
Finishing Les Miserables, and starting War and Peace
Composing and writing the lyrics to my own original song, with the help of my wonderful singing teacher, Leah, and going to a recording studio to record it professionally
Getting a solo, singing my original song, in the local cabaret
Rewriting a whole act of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream into a musical
Taking my Grade 2 singing exam and receiving a merit, and working towards my grade 3
Knocking twenty books off my To-Read-This-Year book list!
Starting to learn the piano
What are you least proud of this year?
What have you enjoyed the most?
(She takes a huge breath) Singing, writing and acting; my relationship with my siblings and parents; all the hugs I get off Thomas; confusing people with mine and L’s twinship (!); reading; having my bedroom decorated; earning money; the media Bible courses for teens I did; getting to choose an entire new wardrobe for myself :); music in general; learning to be vulnerable and open about how I feel with my family.
(Takes another deep breath) Life in general; youth choir; helping with the little ones at children’s choir; my piano lessons…….oh and learning about the hemi-demi-semi quaver!!!
What have you enjoyed the least?
What would you like to change?
My method of persuading Mummy to buy me more books so it becomes more effective 🙂 because, y’know, I want more books…
Do you feel like you have complete autonomy over your learning?
Generally, although I hate maths and wish I didn’t have to do it at all but I do understand it will be good for me in the long run.
Would you like more autonomy? Not sure, I will have to get back to you on that one 🙂
What are you looking forward to next year?
Everything (oh, and more books…)
