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…

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?!
