Hey everyone hope you are well!
Last night before I fell asleep I was overwhelmed with anxiety. Most of it was due to it being Christmas and then New Year. New Year for me has never been something I look forward to, because I have never really known what the year will have for me.
This time, I have a plan but I’m still terrified.
I decided I don’t want to wait till the 1st of January to start making the necessary changes. So I thought I would immortalise my ‘resolutions’ here in the hope it will motivate me to continue.
Read At Least One Book A Week
Now, I can read anywhere from 3 to 6 books a week on a good week.
However I am in my last year of University and need to dedicate most of my time to academic research and reading.
One book a week feels doable.
Focus On University/Dissertation
As some of you might know, I have been at Uni since 2014. I have had a very hard time during uni, I’ve suffered a loss, been through unimaginable pain and suffered with debilitating depression and anxiety.
I feel I’m slowly coming out of it, but I won’t succeed unless I truly focus.
I would like to think I’m an intelligent person, but my grades don’t always reflect that. But that’s due to me never actually trying 100%. I didn’t revise for my GCSE’S but managed to coast through. I then didn’t revise for my A Levels and again managed to get by.
I want the grade I know I deserve and I’m the only person who can make that happen.
Revise Maths Every Day
I failed two GCSE’s: French and Maths. But the issue is I failed my maths GCSE 7 times. I got a D, 7 times.
Of course my dream is to one day be a published author. But I also want to be a teacher. My university let me in without maths but to be a teacher you need it.
I have always struggled with maths. Numbers don’t make sense to me, I can’t visualise any numbers in my minds eye, the way I can with words and sentences and story ideas. Maths has always been my worst enemy.
That’s got to change. I need to work hard on maths because it doesn’t come naturally to me. I want to revise for at least an hour every day, until I can sit my exam in June. If I start now, who knows a miracle could happen and I might get more than just a C.
I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have any resolutions you’re putting off until New Year, maybe think about starting now!
