So it looks like I haven’t blogged in over a month! OOPS! I would like to blame this on many things but the main reason I have been MIA is that there is not enough hours in the day for me to get everything I need to do done. And yes I know everyone in the world gets the same amount of hours per day and I love it how people says “You have the same amount of hours per day as Beyonce” or however that saying goes but little do people realise that Beyonce has a buttload of people working for her to help her get all her stuff done! Whereas me and all of us mere mortals only have ourselves to rely on to get our stuff done. So all that being said I decided, last week, that I needed to drop a unit to save my own sanity. And yes, before anyone says anything, I know census date has been and gone and that I have now incurred a financial and academic penalty but is it really worth me losing my mind over? I think I bit off more than I could chew when I decided 4 units was a GOOD idea to start with for my very first term of uni. I was all like “Oh yeah, I got this, I’m gonna rock this term!” but I was busting my brain and seriously having no life to do it. I was literally spending all my time in front of my laptop or with my head buried in a textbook, I had no time for anyone!
So, now that I have dropped a unit (I’m down to 3) I still don’t have A LOT of spare time but at least I have a little bit. At least now I can spend some time with my husband lol.
Ok having said all that I am off to bury my head in a textbook!
So there is 4 days until Week 1 starts and I am plagued with negative thoughts. Thoughts like; Will I be able to handle the study load? Have I set myself up for failure? Is full-time study something I really want to do? I have come to realise that the answers to these questions are all, theoretically, about my mindset. I know if I believe I can do it then I will be able to do it!
I have read the Introduction at least 4 times over, just to make completely sure I understood everything. That may have been slight overkill as I’m fairly sure I understood everything by the 3rd read through. I have been on Peerwise every few days just to test myself. I only got a few questions wrong which of course made me go and re-read that section.
I am only now starting Chapter 1 of the Study Guide and although I feel like I am slightly behind I know I will be ok. I have faith that I am doing the best I can and in the end that’s all that really matters right?!
On a non-unit note this is my puppy, Nitro
Hi all and welcome to my first ever blog posting.
I’m very new to this so bear with me as I work out the kinks.
So let’s get to the reason why I started a blog. Essentially it is because I had to for my Accounting unit at CQU. I was very concerned about doing this unit as I am seriously (slight exaggeration) lacking Maths skills but I have recently found out that this unit is not all about Maths. Thank goodness!
Ok, so here is a little bit of information about me:
I am studying a Bachelor of Business and a Bachelor of Arts (this is my first term)
I haven’t studied since I finished high school in 2004 (13 years! OMG!)
I live in a southern suburb of Perth, approx about a 45 minute drive from the CBD of Perth.
I currently live with my husband, our puppy Nitro, my mother-in-law and her dog Bindi.
We are all moving back to Queensland in November.
Alright I think that is about all I have to say at the moment. I am really looking forward to starting Uni. Well I’m actually a combination of excited and scared half to death!
