Life Post-Dissertation - My New Outlook

Leave a Comment

Remember me? Vaguely know who I am? Yes that's right, I'm that blogger who has disappeared for months on end with only a few many moany tweets to speak for. As many of you already know, final year smacks you in the face with a mountain of work that you can't seem to escape from, pretty much since January I have been working solidly on my assignments as well as my dissertation. I know many people manage to blog alongside their final year work, but I'm not one of those amazing multi-taskers, especially if I don't have enough time to do everything properly. I wanted to give myself the best possible chance to get the grades I want, so that meant cutting anything out that could distract me or take up too much time that I could better use for my assignments. It also meant I left my job, I was only on a temporary contract which ended in January - but when they offered me an extension until March, I decided to decline due to the amount of work I needed to do within those months, and looking back I think I made the right decision. 

The past three months have been non-stop, as soon as one assignment was done it was time to move onto the next one; I'm not going to lie, it's been pretty intense and stressful. All day, every day has been spent on my laptop or in the library, with uni work on my mind from the moment I wake up until I go to sleep. But last Wednesday, I finally regained my freedom as it was dissertation hand-in day! I have never been so excited and relieved to hand some work in. I now only have two exams in May standing in the way of me *finally* finishing my course, I can finally see the end of the tunnel and it is such a good feeling! 

I feel that I have really neglected myself these past few months, having devoted every spare minute to doing my work - literally I looked and felt like Penny when she was addicted to her computer game. Now I think is the best time to pull myself together and organise my life now I have the time to do so. I thought I'd create a list of the things I wanted to do and achieve over the next few months that I have been putting on hold until I had more time. Hopefully writing this list will help me stick to it as well and help to motivate me!
