Caution! IGCSE approaching!

It is the second week since I went back from Guangzhou. My day times are all fully packed with school lessons and tuition: at 8 school starts, and after 300 I went back to home to do some Physics and Math tuition homework (just to prepare for IGCSE) until 1030.

It is quite hard for me to choose IGCSE courses (especially the art section). I am choosing computer science for art. I was quite interested in coding in the last few months, but when dad started to teach me how to code (c language), I found it so hard. It is a combination of logic and maths, which I am really not good at. On the other hand, I did a little bit of coding by myself mainly to see how well it can design a webpage.

In IGCSE’s arts, you can choose Art, Photography, Computer Science and Dance. Dance is eliminated first as I never want to dance. Photography I am not interested. But for art, as I did pretty well in art class (painting), I am actually a bit more interested. I like drawing and designing things. And computer science, as I mentioned before, is not something I will be really good at. But obviously, I will have more potential doing Computer Science and to do art you need to spend a lot of time on it and do really good time management.

In Lifeskills class at school, I did a personality test on the website It is said to be the best personality testing website, and it will know you so well that you will be understand by others for the first time.

Well as you see, all of these personalities have things they are good at, but obviously some of them are better than the others. Most of my classmates are “Protagonists”, who are “

Charismatic and inspiring leaders, able to mesmerise their listeners.” Actually this might be one of the best personalities. But my personality is the only one in my class, represented by this weird guy:
ISFP Personality (“Adventurer”)
Actually I find it cool that the website knows what kind of person I am. I am always exploring things. I also read the article for adventurers:
The article says that “The biggest challenge facing ISFPs is planning for the future. Finding constructive ideals to base their goals on and working out goals that create positive principles is no small task. Unlike Sentinel types, ISFPs don’t plan their futures in terms of assets and retirement. Rather, they plan actions and behaviors as contributions to a sense of identity, building a portfolio of experiences, not stocks.

So as a conclusion, my biggest aim this year is to be more organized, and also start to think about my future, what I am going to do and what short-term goals I should reach. Or else no matter how many adventures there are, they will all be useless without a reasonable plan.
