Results Day…

Results are out!

It’s strange: the end of this year has really snuck up on me. A week ago I was still taking exams, then with the busy nature of wsaf I haven’t really stopped to think about it. We really finished very late on in the year.

Anyway, onto the results themselves.

I got a 2ii overall, which to be honest, is only to be expected given my work ethic over the last two months. Fortunately, I think that getting a mark lower than I really wanted has made me realise just how many bad habits I’ve been getting into – not getting up til 10 or 11, procrastinating to avoid work, spending too much time on trivial things, and having a REALLY messy bedroom (Yes, it really is distracting, which is rather shaming really).

Fortunately, it has made me promise myself that I am going to really work my hardest to knock these bad habits on the head before I let them completely take over, so hopefully the effects won’t be too serious. I know that if I work properly next year a good 2i shouldn’t present any problem at all, and if I dedicate myself to it I am definitely still capable of getting the first which I really feel I should be getting. Let’s be honest, I know I’m intelligent enough to get one, but I’ve just been letting myself get far too easily distracted from what I should be doing.

This year it slipped from my vision that what I’m actually here to do is a degree, and all the rest of the stuff is a bonus. I don’t want to give things up, but it might do me good to occasionally turn down an opportunity. Maybe. Once in a while. (This is going to be difficult isn’t it?).

For now though, it’s getting into the habit of keeping myself tidy, getting up at a reasonable hour, and not procrastinating, and with some dedication I’m sure I can manage that. Here’s to next year!

    This post demonstrates that you are beginning to learn about yourself too, so maybe all this education is not being wasted. Education is preparing for real life (work and nasty stuff like that) and mistakes are permitted, so long as we learn from them. Your diagnosis is correct (and yes, it is going to be difficult for you) but if you want it badly enough, you’ll do what’s necessary.

    Lots of Love
