Today’s blogpost is a little personal one that I’m making mainly for me to look back on in the future. I’m just going to be talking about my general feelings and thoughts towards the fact that I will actually be graduating in less than a year! Oh my gosh, I can’t even process that, I know the year is going to be hectic and busy and so stressful but I actually can’t wait to just immerse myself in work. I’m starting my first day of my third year on Monday so these are my pre thoughts I guess! I hope everything goes well for you if you’re going back to uni this week too!
First of all, TIME HAS FLOWN, I have no idea where it’s gone because I feel like it was just yesterday when I was nervous for my induction because I had no idea what to expect.
This year is worth 80% of my overall degree so I know I need to put my head down and work my arse off because it’ll be over before I know it. I’m worried for my final year research project, because I’m doing a science degree, we do a lab project and then write a report on that and that is basically our dissertation and I’m super nervous about that. I’m also extremely worried as all our exams are essay based so it’s going to be hard to get those high marks. ALSO I’m also hopefully applying for my Masters this year and it’s highly competitive but I’m praying my determination and passion comes across and I ace the interviews. I will definitely be blogging about the whole process so hopefully that’ll be interesting to some of you!
I know this year will be over before I know it so I do want to enjoy it at the same time and cherish the memories. We had to choose from a list of 5 modules to specialise in and I put Haematology and Blood Transfusion Science as my first option and I’m so happy that I got it, along with 11 others, so the group is significantly smaller than what I’m used to so I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing yet. We also have to do group presentations which is something I’ve never done before so I hope that goes well too!
Also one of my main modules is super hard and the statistics of the module are very low which gives me less hope but I just pray I get through it and end up with a first overall! That’s my aim so I need to smash every single module to get that overall!
Overall I’m looking forward to get cracking on but then at the same time, I’m nervous and I know I’ll be stressed by the second week! However, the thought of graduating actually seems crazy to me, like I cannot believe I will actually be graduating in less than a year! I’m super nervous about the whole application process for my Masters and I’m praying that I get in because it’s my ultimate goal in life!
So that’s all for this post, it was pretty short and sweet but it was more for me, like I said. I hope everyone starting university has an amazing time! Thank you so much for reading and don’t forget to follow my blog, and feel free to follow me on my social media sites!
