I’ve successfully survived an entire year of being at university and have just registered successfully for this year and yet it still feels so surreal to admit that I’m a university student. It just doesn’t feel real at all. Is that strange? Does anyone else who’s studying feel like that or is it just cause I thought this would never happen? I mean when I was younger I really wanted to go study but things and circumstances and I never got to, it started feeling a bit like a pipe dream and then I basically just stopped dreaming. Now it’s a reality and it’s like my brain still won’t believe it.
First semester was hell, well not quite hell but it wasn’t easy that’s for sure. Though I don’t know if it really get’s all that much easier, you just sort of get used to it. But first semester I struggled, particularly when it came to the exams, I got hit with a big life bump and I really didn’t think I’d make it but burying myself in my studies did help although the marks I got weren’t really results I am used to (or was used to in school) but I tried to convince myself that a pass is a pass and someone said to me that they don’t ask how you passed your degree just that you passed.
Second semester I got smart and started studying earlier but then that sort of went to the way-side as we decided to move house and I went from renting out rooms in my old house to cover the rent to renting a room from someone else which meant that I now all of a sudden couldn’t live client to client anymore but actually had to make sure that I had a certain amount in at the end of every month. This might seem like nothing for most people but it’s been a huge challenge for me and often I’ve had to take on a mountain of work at a low return just to try make it work.
But despite this challenge… I managed to somehow pass my second semester with TWO distinctions. So very proud of myself. I missed the 3rd distinction by only 5% but it’s really motivated me to kick this year in the backside!
I’ve been vetted and accepted to run a campaign with Back a Buddy so if you are at all inclined to support me in getting my degree I would be forever grateful. Even R10 makes a difference. And if you can’t help financially even sharing the campaign will help as someone who might be able to help could see it. I sincerely appreciate it!
