well i've endured the first week back at uni after christmas, typically the 'most depressing time of the year', and i think i can safely say i've avoided any kind of depression, thankfully! it's been nice being back around familiar faces and actually having some sort of routine again - i never thought i'd be the kind of 'boring' person that enjoys having a routine, but without one i just get so incredibly lazy! perhaps this is me tackling my 'adult' responsibilities head on?
speaking of responsibilities, second year is hard. i recently received my grade for my last module of work which i worked my bloody arse off for, and received quite a disappointing mark for it. the mark's not terrible by any means, but i know i could've and should've done so much better. after speaking to people though it seems that most people dropped at least a grade boundary lower than they normally do, so i'm assuming it's just a natural progression throughout the years, i mean, of course it's going to get harder! i've tried my best to not let it get me down too much, given myself a swift kick up the bum and kindly reminded myself, once again, that i need to work harder. i often say that phrase to myself and hate myself for it because i know i work hard, but i think people can always do more. i guess i just need to find the balance between doing more and running myself down and making sure i sit comfortably between the two markers. if anyone has any useful tips for staying motivated and pushing yourself harder, i'm all ears, haha!
i hope you've all settled back into uni if you've started again, and if not i hope you're all having a terrible time sitting at home relaxing before your post-christmas term does actually start *huff* well, not really, but i am jealous, haha!
