University, minus the rose-tinted glasses.

I've finished the second year of my degree - that's somewhat scary that I'm 2/3's of the way through my course. And that this year actually means something! That combined with the fact my blog is coming up to a year old means that I've had a fairly hectic year. Wonderful but hectic.

I've achieved so much, yet so little in such a space of time and it's crazy to think not only how I have grown but how my little corner of the internet has developed alongside me...

When I first started this blog, I promised myself that it would be truthful and that this blog wouldn't be me talking about university while walking through life with rose-tinted glasses, because realistically life just isn't always perfect.

And things definitely haven't been perfect. There have been times when I've wondered whether university was right for me, whether I had it in me to keep up with the rest of the class when I felt so far behind, and what I'd do if I did leave. I've wondered whether it was my course, or flat or work that has made me feel like it and drawn a blank every time I've tried to find any answers.

Thankfully these feelings have passed, and I in no way want to leave. I may have struggled this year but I do not want my journey to end. I am determined to finish this degree and continue to grow. I have so much more to achieve and experience.

This year in the end may have been ok, but next year is going to be so much better!

  1. I'm so glad someone else feels the same way! I have just finished my second year and there were times this year when I just didn't want to carry on. Luckily I have good friends and lecturers who took the time to listen to me.

    Here's to a great 3rd year!
