All alone on the eeeddgeee ooffffff... seventeeeeeeenn :P
(As I write this I'm listening to this for the 6th (Scratch. 7th (Scratch. 8th)) time in a row. Don't judge me please)
So yeah, my birthday is tomorrow. I don't think I've told you on GAG that before, so... now you know. I will be 17.
What should I focus the most on?
~Physical fitness (I'll be starting my Gold DofE soon, and I have to choose something for the Physical) and if so, what do I do? I'm sort of average fitness at the moment, but I get the feeling in the next few years I'll have to decide how I want to keep in shape.
~Self confidence? This is most likely the hardest one to deal with BY FAR, but it probably need tackling :/
Or just any other advice you want to give, lay it on me :)

You need a balance. Self confidence is very important definitely, but feeling good about your achievements in other areas will help that. Maybe identify the things you feel less confident about and work at them individually (and in small steps, don't beat yourself up if they're hard! <3 )
Studies are definitely very important. Getting good A Levels will really help you with anything you want to do next. That said your grades don't define you, and you shouldn't stress about them so much that you're compromising your health. Work hard, but break studying up into manageable chunks and make sure you're looking after yourself and getting all the help you need at the same time :)
Fitness wise I have the least experience honestly haha, I'm not very fit at all. Gold DofE sounds dead impressive to me!!0

I would work on self-confidence because it will help you in so many endeavors. Understand that you are unaware of most of the flaws in others but you are aware of every flaw in yourself, so you will always judge yourself more harshly. Every guy does not want the same things in a girl and there are some guys out there who would say that you are exactly what they want. You may mot meet the expectations of most people but, if you are looking for a partner, you only need to find one.
To paraphrase Rabbi Hillel, "If I am not for myself, who else should be?" Start being your best friend and you will have a best friend who will never desert you.
