Before I start the actual blog, I owe you an apology. I said that I would be taking a little break from my blog to focus on uni and work, as things got too on top of me, and that was like…. February? Things have certainly been very busy, and I’m super sorry for being MIA. As you’re probably already aware from my unbelievable amount of celebrating via social media, my first year of university is over. I submitted my final assignment on Wednesday 19th April, and now I’m free to do whatever I wish for the next 22 weeks, thats a whole lot of freedom!
My first year of uni has been such an experience, yes there have been times when I just don’t know how I’m going to find the time to do everything thats required of me, and I’ve also shed a tear or two from not knowing what I’m supposed to be doing, but aside form the stress that is unavoidable with uni, I’ve also absolutely loved it. Ive enjoyed learning so much more about psychology and education, I’ve enjoyed psychology so much that I’ve decided to major in it during my second year! Exciting! Ive learned so much in my first year, its really helped me grow and develop, I’ve learned so much about organising myself and staying on top of my studies, I think its something all students learn after so many times of leaving everything to last minute and then having a mental breakdown when you see your to do list. Im certainly going to tackle second year a lot differently, this year felt like some sort of trial, the results do not count towards your final grade at the end of your course, but you still have to pass to continue, it felt like I was given a chance to make lots of mistakes so that I do better when it ‘matters’. I’ve had a blast, I’ve met so many people, made some absolutely wonderful friends, and its been a year to remember.
I have so much planned for these next 5 months, Its crazy! Some I can share with you, some are a little personal, I’m planning to dedicate a blog post to my 2017 summer, so keep your eye out for that. I’ve actually been working overtime for the past 2 weeks along side having to finish my assignments, so I’ve taken the last few days to relax and catch up on my sleep. I took a little road trip/day out with my wonderful friends and then I had to work Friday and Saturday, but it still felt great to be able to come home from work and relax instead of do more work for uni. I did what I felt like doing and its been fab! Sunday has been my day of planning and preparing, I want to do so much with my time off uni that I need to be on top of things and I don’t want to fall into old habits and sleep in all day just getting fat(er).
I’m super excited to see whats next for university, but for now, its time to make the most of these 22 weeks, and get cracking on my humongous ‘summer to do list’.
Id love to know what you’ve got planned for your summer break, let me know in the comments!
