First Year of College & Update
So, 5 months ago I posted a text post with a similar title as this very one, explaining the reasons why my posting on here had become so irregular. Since then, my posting has stopped completely. I feel like I owe an explanation.
I started college in September. I moved out of home in a quiet time to a city, full of people. I wasn’t expecting to move so soon, so was slightly unprepared. It was quite a shock tbh.
Classes started and I initially found them okay, or at least that’s what I told myself. During the second month, my mam picked me up from the bus stop, and I finally broke down and admitted I was finding the course difficult, particularly chemistry, which I hadn’t taken previously.
After, I continued trudging my way through the college year, trying to make friends and find time to study. That’s about the time I made the first update post on here. As exams started in November, I found myself stuck in the library or in college till late, so I barely had any free time.
Christmas came and went, and then the results of our Christmas exams rolled out. An A, a C and two D’s. I was happy I passed but bummed out that my grades were probably lower than the rest of my year. (For our module choices next year, we’re all ranked on grade.) I was mainly upset about the C in Biology, something I want to take in future years.
So I pushed myself into my work and concentrated on my studies more. My free time was spent going to the gym and trying to spend time with friends. I didn’t have a lot of time to be on tumblr. My ask box was building up with questions, over 3,000 asks. Honestly, I couldn’t bare to look at it anymore without feeling guilty.
Later in Spring, a family member passed away. In dealing with it, I concentrated on study & going to the gym. I was upset and coming online was only making it worse so in a way, I gave up on this studyblr, and it’s also when I stopped posting on my elkstudies instagram.
Summer exams were approaching fast and I was super worried about my grades and getting what I needed to achieve the year. I threw myself into study. It paid off, I finished the year with 2 A’s and 2 B’s. When I received those results, I was so happy. Hard work really does pay off.
I wanted to come back online and kickstart my studyblr again because those grades really inspired me to work hard, and posting on here is something I definitely need to work on. I’m hoping I’ll be able to post more on here, especially coming into the next college year. I really wanted to be honest and thank you & well done if you’ve read this far.
