I spent the day looking after this little rascal while trying to get some cleaning projects done. 🥰
My internship is coming to a close, and spring semester starts in a week. I wish I could just stay here and, care for the animals, but starting next week I have so many wonderful, new opportunities. Saturday, I start my animal care internship at the science center, Monday I start working at the doggie day care on Monday, and Tuesday afternoon I have a meeting to make my schedule with the farm sanctuary! 😄
My last semester as an undergrad is going to be jammed pack with lots of hard work and lots of animals 🥰
At 4, I learnt to read.
Exams in my third year. Too soon? Probably. But they ramp up the pressure early here.
Year 3 through 4, a gymnast. My coach was far too strict. "This is not for fun," she'd tell us. "It's serious, and you must win."
Year 5 I got a tutor. I was told I was too late; that a lack of commitment before the age of nine had meddled with my fate.
Year 6 was about exams - SATS again at just age 10. I felt so old but looking back, my friends and I were just children.
More tests again that summer, to decide how we'd be set. Set one was smart, set eight was dim - there was no hope for them.
Year 9 I picked my options; career fairs, tests and sessions prevailed. If we could not decide by then, we were surely destined to fail. Told to clear a path and follow it - not straying, no - and so, towards the destination we must go.
A level choices came around and I could choose just three. Such restrictions placed on me, was just fifteen, and suddenly, I could no longer be a medic. A scientist. A dentist, or an astronaut. My subjects mean that ship has sailed, you see.
And then there's work experience - which is great, I won't deny - but choosing what to do can be a little overwhelming too.
I'm cut out to be a lawyer. I've known that since forever. But is it truly me, or is it more society, that decides in which field I shall endeavour? Is it truly what I want? I don't know. I think it is but I do not know. How can I know? I am just sixteen.
I've been planning my future since before I even knew what future was. I have time but I've been rushed, besides there's more to life that just a job. Than academia. Than tests and exams, "success" and "failure". Life is not straightforward, the road just wasn't built that way. There are diversions everywhere, distractions and adventures, everywhere. Enjoy the journey.
You don't need one route to follow straight, take as many as you like. Experiment and see what suits. Plant the roots, then grow from there. I promise you will grow. But growth takes time, and that's okay. We have time. You have time. You'll get there, if "there" even exists. It will work out so trust the process. Fretting will make no real difference.❤️

Hi! I had my 3rd exam today and it was pretty hard ?!? I did quite a few past papers and those questions were much easier than the ones I got today during the exam. But I studied hard so it didn’t go too horribly soo whatever. -
Your answers on my previous post made me very excited! I haven’t had time to read all of your study methods just yet but I am looking forward to reading them & learning from your techniques. -
I have a few ideas for my upcoming posts so stay tuned for more study tips & tricks! 🥳
My next exam is this Friday and I pretty much have to revise everything so wish me luck 🍀
where do you usually study?
I’m ditching my desk for the dining room table for the next two days. This always happens during the days leading up to my exam. I’ve spent almost every day of the semester at my desk that I just can’t stand the look of it atm 😂
