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.

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!

Being crushed by the world..

As I am now nearing the end of my final year at university, I am starting to feel the weight of the future bearing down on me. I’m desperately searching for jobs so I can start a career that I love, I’m panicking about not making the grades I want. Freaking out about having to go to job interviews if I actually get that far.giphy.gif

Unfortunately right now this has all got me feeling pretty stressed out and down, so I’m just hoping something is going to turn my way and make everything seem less terrifying!OGe1orp.gif

If anyone has been through something like this before and has any advice then I am definitely all ears.

Weekly Update!

So, here we are with the third weekly update.

This week I’ve been in work a lot as we are getting ready for the new season and there is so much to be done. We’ve got a brand new restaurant opening and so everything needs ferrying in and we need to have some trial runs so it’s all hands on deck!

Other than that I haven’t had much time for anything else, I’ve been going to work, going to the gym, going home, sleeping and then repeating it all again!

I will find a way to be fit while having a working life, not to mention university and blogging!! I will be organised for the new university year!!
