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!!

Stuck in a crisis..

Since being a teenager my life goal has been to be a veterinarian. In recent years, after a rejection from university and increasing student fees, I’m finding it difficult to believe that I will get there (unless of course, I help out an old lady on the street who turns out to be a millionaire and donates me £40,000).

My issue is I’ve been so focused on being a vet that I have absolutely no back up plan and now I have no idea what I want to do with my life.

Anybody else had this issue and has any advice?

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!!

Guess Who’s Back!!

Yes, that’s right. I am finally back to blogging.

My two full time jobs and university overwhelmed me and I ended up in hospital and really ill. However, I’m out and I’m ready to get back to blogging as it has been something that I have really missed.

So please keep an eye out for new blog updates as I am definitely back on the blogging train.

My Grand Return!

I know that I’ve been absent a lot recently but I’ve been super busy. Having two full time jobs and also going to university full time is a bit of a hand full and I got slightly overwhelmed and so I haven’t had time to keep up with my blog.

Luckily, I know have a few days off work so I should have some new content up for you soon so please don’t forget about me.

And please, if anyone has any advice on juggling all my commitments please give me a heads up; because at the minute, any advice would be super helpful.

How I Handled First Day Stress.

It was my first day of university after having a year out due to a rejection last year. That rejection greatly knocked my confidence and had me believing that I wasn’t good enough to go to university.

Eventually, I went through the horrible process of applying again, and then before I knew it, it was time to get back into the swing of things in the education department.

My first day was terrible, I was so nervous and so scared that I would be miles out of my depth. Luckily, when I got there it seemed like everyone was feeling the same way, so at least I wasn’t alone in my thinking.

My plan for the day was basically to put in my headphones and listen to some music whenever it felt like it was too much for me to handle. This was actually a pretty good plan and I managed to stay calm for most of the day. When I was in my lecture though, this plan was not very feasible, so I just had to take a few deep breaths, concentrating on keeping them nice and even, and to think very calm and comforting thoughts to remind myself that I was okay.

With this method, I managed to make it through my first day and even make a friend or two!

Now, I have just finished my first week and I feel happier but not completely comfortable yet, but with a few more weeks I hope that I will feel much more settled and then everything will, hopefully, fall into place for me.

So if anyone is going through the same thing as me, please leave a comment below to let me know (we can get through this together) and just remember that if I can continue fighting my way through then so can anyone else.
