Life | Wake Up Tomorrow & Do It All Again
Three years of study and really, it all comes down to this. I have three weeks to finish writing 15,000 words comprising an essay, a book review and the dreaded dissertation. Where did the time go?
It's not that I still feel like a fresher, completely unsure and totally overwhelmed, I don't. I can honestly say I'm a completely different person than the day I stepped out of the pick up and down the steps to my halls. For starters I'm a thousand times more sure of myself, I have a better much better fashion sense, a seriously extended makeup collection and I'm no longer the quietest person I know, I have learnt to speak up.
But somewhere in between I blinked and now I'm somehow managing all this time-engulfing stuff that I hadn't had time to actually sit down and consider until I didn't have to anymore. I'm a psychology undergraduate. I'm a blogger and a social media freelancer. I'm a NUS delegate for my university, where I also have a job.
My first year self could not comprehend the hours in the day that all of this work takes but then again, she was just a busy making friends and fitting in. Ultimately, it's not so much about the hours that it takes but the hours that you create to fit it all in. What I'm trying to say to all you third year students out there, those of you that are struggling with your A-levels or can't find enough hours in the week to cook a proper meal...
You have as much free time as you create, don't beat yourself up about what you can't do, congratulate yourself on what you've already achieved by waking up and going about your super-human day. And wake up again tomorrow and do it all again.
