… I will have finished my first year of uni. It’s a huge milestone that’s come about awfully quickly, and part of me still feels like a complete novice in the world of tertiary education. I’m still an avid procrastinator (why else would I be writing this blog post?), dread in-class essays and cannot Harvard reference to save my life, so how can I be almost at the end of my first year as a responsible adult?
I guess I have achieved some things that I am proud of this year, and help remind me that I am not as incompetent as I feel sometimes. Most notably so far:
- I have scored myself a part time job at Lagoon restaurant,
- I have survived a week on my own and not burnt down the house,
- I am in a steady relationship with my lovely boyfriend Isaac,
- I am no longer taking regular antidepressants, and
- I am taking part in a campaign to raise money for mental illness in the Illawarra.
So while I might not be the most studious or organised person in the world, I’m not completely terrible at this whole “adulting” business. And 10 weeks from now, I will hopefully have achieved even more:
- Finished my final exams for first-year uni,
- Organised my first holiday without my family (going to Melbourne with Isaac),
- Saved enough money to be in a stable financial position,
- Maintain a credit average in my degree,
- Learn something new of my own initiative rather than through my classes, and
- Raise over $750 for my mental health fundraising campaign.
Fingers crossed! ^_^
