I haven’t written a blog in a while. Which got me thinking about time.
Where do I find the line for time to myself, time with my friends, time working and time studying? This year has been a real page turn for me. Having failed my second year in 2010 due to a mix up of hand in dates, I wanted to prove to my lecturers in my third year that I could achieve at least a 2:2 in my written assignments
On top of assignments to do, I also had a job. Not just one job, but two. I work for ASDA seasonally and Animal every Saturday. Worried I would not achieve the grades I desired, I chose to work for ASDA seasonally so that I could continue my studies throughout term time.
As well as two jobs and assignments, I needed time for myself, time with my friends and family and time with my boyfriend. While writing assignments, my boyfriend would study for his navy exams or my friends and I would gather in the library for a study group. This was really great as I got to concentrate on my written work as well as socialising with the people I cared about.
On top of all this, I am an active bandswoman. Having been part of St Pinnock Brass Band for well over ten years, regular practices and concerts meant that nights were taken up with music instead of assignments and socialising.
With all of these things going on, I still managed to achieve not a 2:2 in my assignments, but a 2:1 in EVERY SINGLE ONE!! I had exceeded mine and anyone else’s expectations.
What I am trying to say is that no matter how “little” time you have for everything in your life, there is always time for something. And if you really put your heart to something, you will achieve it.
