UNI: YEAR 2

I have had a realisation.

If I were to walk into a mahoosive, gorgeous, packed Poundland – full of stunning stationary, my brain would tell me “No Storm, no. This isn’t the best time or moment in your life for you to purchase any of this stuff. Maybe you will need this stuff at a different stage of your life, but not now.”

But brain, you’re wrong.

When you really think about it, what better time, place, moment in my life could I possibly need stationary more than when in the midst of me studying for a degree in Astrophysics…? If I’m to one day work at an office job? No, I am CERTAIN that these days students use far more stationary than one working in an office job does in a day. Then perhaps it’s more suitable for when I was younger and in compulsory education – or in college? No. University = more difficult = more notes = more work = more studying = more stationary.

I just don’t know why my brain always seems to talk me out of treating myself to certain nice things – even when there will LITERALLY be no better time than now to do so.

This goes for a lot of things when it comes to Uni.

Like, when I went to Fresher’s Fair last year and grabbed all the leaflets and put my name down for almost everything I possibly could, only to go home and my brain to tell me “Meh, if you can’t be bothered to do this stuff now then you can just do it at another stage in your life.”

No, brain.

What better time is there for me to go to socials, join societies, join sporting clubs and go to events than during my first degree at University? After University – when I am holding down a full time job and perhaps have children to take care of? Maybe a better time was in the past and was when I was at school – before I was independent and could choose exactly what I wanted to do with my time?

No.

There literally will not be a better time to do any of those things than whilst studying on this degree.

Again, this goes for a lot of things when it comes to Uni and quite frankly, when it comes to life.

For some bizarre reason, I tend to convince myself out of making changes in my life, even when they are entirely appropriate and simple things to do – like buying a new pen.

I begin my second year at University on the 18th September, and you know what? This year is ACTUALLY going to be different! I’ll remember this realisation and will just allow myself to live my best second-year-of-my-degree life.

Back at Uni.

Hello! 🙂

I returned to Uni on Thursday the 15th. I did my Mathematics exam last Tuesday, I’m so happy that it’s finally over and done with! I know that I didn’t do too well in it, but I kept calm and just did my best.

I’m still having to study a lot to keep on top of all my work, but the exam being over is definitely a big weight lifted off my shoulders.

I have loads to get done this term! This week, I’m going to join some societies, clubs and classes that interest me. I will write about them in my next blog post!

I’ve also had a few shopping trips that I haven’t shared with you, so expect some haul blog posts soon. 😉

Being at University can, inevitably, be very tough sometimes. Students go from having little responsibilities to suddenly being bombarded with being responsible for just about everything in their life – and those responsibilities only get tougher to handle!

I’ve got a very busy day today so that’s all for today. Just wanted to post a little update of what’s been going on in my life! Expect more posts very soon. 🙂
