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!!

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.

Education, education, education.

It’s almost time for me to finish my university undergraduate degree. Just my exams left to finish and then I’m done!

The question I have now is, do I want to continue in education or do I want to find a job I love that can also lead to a career I love?

My brain says I’d like to continue education because I’ve always wanted a PhD but then again, I simply cannot find any PhDs I like the look and sound of. I can’t even find a Masters course that sounds appealing to me.

If anybody has any advice on what they did or whether they enjoyed continuing their education; please leave me a comment below to help me make my decision!

Am I Leaving The Country?!

I’ve been looking at veterinary medicine courses overseas for quite a while, and haven’t had much luck at English speaking countries and so decided to look for courses in Germany as I already have a reasonable knowledge of German; considering I studied it for 6 years.

I finally found a course in Berlin and now it’s time to start brushing up on my German again so that I can pass the language test and finally start living my dream; even if that means that it’s ten times harder. For me it’s worth it to finally achieve my dream!!!

Has anyone else completely moved to a new country or learnt a new language to follow their dream?

Meeting My First Deadline!!

So, I’ve got my first deadline coming up in a couple of weeks and in all honesty, I have absolutely no motivation to get it done.

I’ve so far completed about a quarter of the portfolio that I have to hand in, and I just don’t want to do anymore.

It’s not even that it’s difficult, it’s just that it’s absolutely dull and nothing at all to do with what I want to do.

Any tips on keeping motivated to meet a deadline??

Leave them below!!

What Have I Been Up To?

Hi all,

I know it’s been a while since I have posted anything, so I thought I’d fill you in on what I’ve been doing.

I’ve recently had loads and loads of work to do for university, so I’ve been trying the best I can to fit this in between my two jobs.
I’ve also just had a trial week for another job that is 40 hours a week, but I’m not too bothered about that because it is something that I really want to do.
I’ve been hitting the gym in my time off, trying desperately to get fit because in all honesty I want to improve the quality of my life and also my health.
And then with any extra time I’ve had left over I’ve been catching up with my friends and trying desperately to not get overwhelmed with work, and just chilling out.

So what has everyone else been up to with their lives recently?!

Blowdown to Christmas: Been A Busy Wallflower!!

Today I haven’t had any time to do anything at all Christmassy except open my advent calendar.

I have been in university for four hours and work for 16. That is a very long day and I am very tired.

Therefore, this post is going to be very short as I am now curled up in bed, freezing and sleepy.

I’d love to know if any of you guys have done anything Christmassy today (Yes, I know it’s late) and also how any of you bloggers out there can handle education, work and blogging without failing in one or more areas.

Any advice would be so helpful right now as work is getting extremely busy (It is the Christmas period after all) and I really want to keep this Blogdown to Christmas going everyday until Christmas!!
