“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
6/2 The biggest struggle I’ve had in completing an undergraduate degree, is the lack of support from close “adults”. I am the type of student that requires undivided attention when completing a task. The reason why my previous degree took the longest time to finish, was because of the immense pressure for me to work. With this new undergrad degree, I have decided to drop my hours of work to casual, and take up volunteering. This allowed me to dedicate more time to my study, without the pressure to work at places that’s not even related to my degree. I’m not sure if there are other people who have faced this? But I do want to hear from your side. I get it, there are some cases where you need to work to live, but in my case I was in a situation where I can be supported. But academically, I was not supported. I would hate to look back, see that I could’ve finish the degree earlier and worked somewhere in line with my passion, at the same time generating an income. By taking this route, I have limited the number of years where I could have established myself, career-wise and financially.
8/2 Spent a quick day out at Potts Point Hotel yesterday, for lunch. Ditched the Lunar Markets, for an earlier cheat meal day! The weather was perfect, not humid at Kings Cross, which made the sun bearable throughout the afternoon. I will now tackle on a drama review, wish me luck!
