Getting Ready to Head Back to University: Bring on Another Semester

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

Robert Collier

Last week was the start of the new semester! Technically it was Orientation Week so no classes actually started but it was still intense. As an online student, I have to wait until orientation week to get all my class times which can always be a little stressful.

For the most part, I won’t be able to attend my classes live. It’s a bummer, but with a hyperactive toddler and limited nap time, I don’t have much of a choice! I can’t sit on my laptop and focus on a class while my toddler is wanting my attention, so I’ll have to skip the live classes.

Thankfully my University is amazing with their online accessibility! I’m able to watch the classes back at a later time so I’ll be watching all my classes at night once the toddler is in bed. It means my days will be long and exhausting but I’m determined to power through my final year of University!

I have 4 classes this semester. I only have 7 total classes left so next semester I’ll be doing 3. I’m so close to finishing and graduating but it also feels like a lifetime away! I’m looking forward to writing for Uni again and also delving into some more literary studies. This semester is very theory heavy with plenty of research into the history and literary theory which is going to be fun.

It’s definitely going to be a crazy few months. I have a toddler, am going through some of my final Uni classes and need to start writing my thesis! It’ll be busy and full-on but I know it’ll be so incredibly rewarding. I’m not one that likes to sit still and do nothing anyway so I’m happy to be busy.

Success isn’t overnight. It’s when every day you get a little better than the day before. It all adds up.

I’m planning on continuing my weekly blog throughout the semester! I really enjoy having the creative outlet of my blog and although I do like having a break every so often I am more than happy to keep blogging away!

Plus writing some short stories and poems to post up is always so rewarding! Sometimes I’m able to post my Uni work once it’s been graded and finalised which feels like a feat of accomplishment. Something I worked hard on for Uni is out in the world! Always a good feeling.

I’m going to leave the blog here or I’ll end up rambling for pages! I’m really excited to see where this year leads and I’m excited to be ‘healthy busy’ over the next few months!

Recipe for success: Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing.
