My exam is well and truly OVER. It was the big one, the exam to end all exams, the final frontier! 3 months are slave labour and library sweats nights and weekends I (hope) have and will pay off…. there is a just under a month wait for the results but in my mind its over – finito – au revoir!
I’m absolutely SHATTERED. I feel like every ounce of energy has drained away from my cheeks. I put my absolute ALL into this exam, and not just this exam but pretty much every exam I’ve done since my GCSEs OVER 10 YEARS ago! I cried on the morning of my exam; sort of tears of relief, anger, and nerves. I realised how much my post grad exams have taken from me mentally, physically, emotionally. It has been just a long journey with highs as well as lows. I have no regrets and I’m so proud of my academic achievements, but at the same time I’m now at a place in my life when I realise grades and
overachieving isn’t everything.
Perfection is so overated
TODAY is the first day of the rest of my LIFE! I am turning over a new leaf, and beginning a brand new exciting chapter in my life!
So today I went out and got a whole lot of goodies for myself – some benefit make up! some sexy lingerie, sewing bits and bobs and yankee candles. Exciting!! Its wierd – I feel i have to go study now lol !! I also deleted my Facebook account. I realised it does nothing but hold me back, encourage me to compare myself with others (aka stalking) and FB politics, and breed negativity. I also don’t need daily updates about everyone i vaguley know getting pregnant/having babies! it just makes me feel rubbish and distracts me from my personaljourney!
I’ve decided to focus my energies and time now on getting myself healthy inside and out – focussing on my exercise and healthy eating journey. I have relatively few distractions now and I know that I can put everything that i have been practiced here and there and see some real results if I can now be consistent, focussed and discplined!
I’m going to be updating the blog much more regularly to be accountable for my weight loss journey – I have a lot to lose so wish me luck!!
I’m also very thrilled to share the great news that I’m joining a beginners 0-5k running group!! I will be joining the aweosome Liz Goodchild in OCTOBER and I’m excited about the thought of being able to jog a 5k before my 29th Birthday in December! Its something i can commit to and I’m so excited to be meeting new like minded people that live locally throughout the process!
