When you’re struggling with motivation, but then deadlines are hammering down… and trying to prep for job interviews, while trying to stay social… the weather decides to give you non-stop rain, but you have to keep up tutoring, your pet snail won’t eat much, and you’re battling insomnia every night… gosh, life can be just a little bit exhausting.

Well it was back to uni for me this week; oh hello final semester.
I’m slowly getting back into the routine of juggling tutoring, studies and life again. I’m also starting to apply for jobs in the education industry, and it’s all a little scary. Everything’s getting pretty real with my masters course coming to an end, and I just can’t shake that ‘scared’ feeling.
This is my second last week of holidays before I return back to my final semester of University. It’s been really lovely to soak up the remaining few days because it’s going to be a hard semester. Unexpectedly, the week ended on a strange note. I’ve been feeling quite dazed lately, with much on my mind about life. Continue reading →
This week has been pretty chill with the planning side of things. I feel very grateful to have the time to rest in these holidays, because it might be the last time i get a ‘real holiday’ before I finish my degree (if i’m lucky to find a job at the end of the year). I’ve had a lot on my mind mentally, and sometimes find myself unexpectedly quite emotional. I try to feel whatever it is i need to feel in the moment, but I can’t help but apologise for just being human. It’s a silly defect.
It’s been a long week, but an even more long day. This week it’s been mentally draining and I feel my head has been occupied with lots of thinking and feeling. I’ve been bothered about things in life that have not been solved immediately, which doesn’t help my anxiety levels. I’ve been trying to learn to ‘let things be’, instead of take immediate action (as my default response). But geez, this has been tough.
I think this week has been a good balance of productiveness and chilling out, which is rare for me! I’ve finally gotten around to ticking some things off, finishing up with them, while also keeping up with tutoring and family time. I’m finally on holidays, which feels a little strange, but I just want to keep warm and rest as much as I can. Hopefully these holidays I can take care of myself a little more mentally and physically, without having to push myself to do so or feel resentful. It might even be nice to write up a little list of things I want to focus on.
