Life sucks…

Recently I’ve been having a lot of knock backs in life. I’ve just finished uni and got a lower mark than expected due to a marking error with a piece of coursework that dragged my percentage down. Β Then I’ve been trying to apply for more education only to have it all rejected.

I’ve started a new job and I hate it and now I have no plans for the future.

 

Help!

Getting my university results…


A couple of days ago I received my final grade for my uni course. At first I was completely devastated. It wasn’t what I wanted, people who attended less classes than me had got better results and it threw my career aspirations completely out of the water. 

Now however, with the help of my lovely and amazing other half, I’m feeling positive and like I have opportunities still. 

Now I’m planning on furthering my education with a Masters degree and then seeing what opportunities that provides me with!! 

If anyone else is just getting exam results back and they aren’t what you were hoping for then don’t worry. Get someone to look at your opportunities from another perspective because I can guarantee they’ve seen something you haven’t. 

Until next time…

School is over..now what?

So on the 19th May I finished my final exam at university. Since then I have been applying for jobs endlessly. In the past month I have applied for over 200 jobs.

How many have I heard back from so far?

None.

It is so disheartening spending hours filling in application forms to not get an acknowledgment back.

I’m just hoping something comes up soon before I run out of money and/or drive myself mad.

Manchester is strong…

Last night after the Ariana Grande concert finished at the Manchester Arena, something terrible and unthinkable occurred. A lone attacker caused an explosion that left 22 dead; including young children, and 59 injured (at the time of writing). This event has shook not only Manchester, but most of the globe to its core.

Things like this shouldn’t be happening, and being on my backdoor made it only more terrifying.

There are still missing people and my heart and good wishes are with everyone that has been affected.

I stand with Manchester. We are strong.

My first exam…

Had my first exam of my final year at university yesterday. I was completely terrified before I took it but felt really happy as I was leaving.

Everything went really well, I felt well prepared and could answer the questions to the best of my ability.

Hope my other 2 exams go well, and I also hope that if anyone else is going through their exams too that they are going well for you!!

Fending for myself..

This week, I have been dog sitting and house minding with my boyfriend while his parents are on holiday.

I have never had so much fun and felt so relaxed. It has given me a chance to experience being on my own away from my own parents and having to actually do things for myself.

Mainly now though I simply can’t wait to get my own place with my own puppy!!

Preparing for exams..

Blogging has been my escape for the past couple of weeks. It has been my escape from hours of revision, and hours of reading scientific papers and trying to remember references.

I have been getting far too familiar with Google Scholar over the past few days and my brain is getting mashed with names and dates.Screen Shot 2017-05-03 at 17.15.29.png

Any advice on revising for university exams would be great right about now, because it seems impossible to remember so much information.
