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!

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 Do I Want To Do With My Life?

When I was around fifteen I realised that I wanted to be a vet, and everything I did from that moment on was to achieve that dream. However, after finishing sixth form college and getting rejected from university; I started to realise that my dream may in fact be just too much of a dream.

I felt shattered and depressed and like I would never be good enough to do what I wanted to do in life.

Then last year I decided enough was enough and it was time to stop wallowing on lost dreams and get back into the education world. I have gone to university studying Biology, with the hopes to maybe go on and become a vet later on in life, and if not there are plenty of career opportunities for biology graduates.

I’ve learnt that it’s okay to have a dream and to strive for that dream, but also don’t let the weight of that dream rest on your shoulders and crush you down. Life always has plenty of opportunities and eighteen is far too young to feel like life is over because you missed out on your dream.

So please, if anybody else is feeling this way right now, know that it’s not the end of the world and things will get better. There is always hope. All you have to do is try.
