Today was the first day of my second year at university/placement. I also viewed my ratified results for all my modules and i am glad to say i have no resubmissions because i passed all my assignments, examsa and all my practical assessments first time. If i am honest it feels like a dream, it feels like only yesterday i started at Uni and now i am in my 2nd and and final year. Luckily for me my course is only 2 years but it is an intense course and sometimes things can get so overwhelming due to the pressure. I managed to survived the 1st year and i am determined to survive the final year.
I struggled a bit last year with balancing homelife, being on placement and having to do all my academic work at the same time. I am also hoping that last years experiences will come in handy in organising my life so that i have some sort of balance in my life. My first lecture is tomorrow morning and i need to jot down my placement and university timetable in my trusted diary.
I had the same type of diary in my 1st year and it proved to be very useful. The only difference was that it had a pink cover. I some of my previous posts i have mentioned how disorganised i am and sometimes this causes me a lot of stress but this academic year i choose to enjoy my life, my son and all my work. Everyday i am working on strategies that will hopefully improve and make my life easily manageable.
How do you balance your career, home and everything else?
Hope you all have a good week. xx
