Since I have a tendency to procrastinate until the very last minute, last week saw me rushing to complete three major works, two assessments and study for an exam. When I sat down to add up the numbers, I struggle to understand how I did it.
By the end of the week, I had...
Borrowed and returned over 32 library books.
Read and referenced probably half.
Written and edited over 7,000 words.
Printed and posted over 85 pages.
Pulled two consecutive all-nighters and met three assessment deadlines.
Broke down, cried & procrastinated a hell of a lot.
With all the associated stress of the week, I barely had time to appreciate the major life achievement that had occurred. I have now finished my first degree at University, and will be graduating soon with a B/ Social Science. My biggest regret is that it had such a terrible ending. Social Science was a large part of my everyday life for the last three years. I met some wonderful people, sat in class rooms with some very wise teachers and had the opportunity to delve into some ideas I would have never otherwise uncovered. University life for me however is not over just yet. I still have another two strenuous years to finish off my Law degree. But I am very excited to start studying Law units that interest me, and be done with the boring Constitutional type compulsory subjects.
A big thank you to my family and few friends who supported me throughout the last semester, and in particular the last week or so. Without your kind and encouraging words I probably would have given up at the thought of it all. Also, a very special thank you goes to my dear friend Shannon, for once again providing me with pages and pages of law notes before the exam. Without your generosity, I most definitely would have failed.
Now that it's all over for the year, I look forward to my four month holiday, where books will be read in recreation, letters posted out of love, and all-nighters spent with friends having fun!
