Something I strongly believe in is that if a teacher is not supportive of their students, the student(s) will show little interest in learning and will ultimately sacrifice reaching their true potential. The newly reformed education system in the UK is messed up anyway, and I get that it is stressful for teachers as well as students. However, without working together, we will struggle. This post is largely based upon my experience in the last year of sixth form and does not represent the entire experience of A Levels or indeed the attitude of all teachers.
16/08/2018 - A Level results day. If you read my previous post, you will know that I have been so scared for this day. I'm going to take you on a run-through of how the day went and then I will reveal my results.

I'm really excited for this post today as it is a collaboration with one of my favourite bloggers, Najida, from Life as Najida. I'll be sharing a few of my favourite summer songs with you.
This isn't the sort of post that I normally do, however recently I've been trying to improve my photography and editing skills. The weather has been beautiful lately, although the heat did make me feel really ill last week, I ventured out for a walk in my local park, and took a few photos. I thought I'd share some of them with you.
I was on the Boohoo website the other day, and I noticed that I was adding quite a lot of things to my wishlist. So, I thought I'd share a few of the items that caught my eye.
I'm back. You may be reading this and wondering who I am and questioning when you followed this blog. This is 'Carly May Talks' the new and (hopefully) improved 'Lilies and Feathers'. I've felt unsure about 'Lilies and Feathers' pretty much since the day I created it, and as much as I love where it … Continue reading Change
Exams. They cause lots of stress, anxiety and panic. Years of hard work, over in a matter of weeks. But once exams are over, you're left with a long summer ahead of you! (I had nearly 3 months off after my GCSEs!) I want to share with you some of the things you can do to make the most of your free time before you go back into education (or full time work!)
I posted on Twitter and Instagram asking for your questions to make this post. Make sure you follow me on my accounts to keep up to date, and possibly get involved in another Q&A in the future. Najida on Twitter asked: What subjects are you currently taking in school? I am currently in Year 13 … Continue reading Q&A | March 2018
