As much as I love running my own blog and engaging with the community, I sometimes really struggle with regular posting. I really give my best to post at least twice a week, but it feel like it’s never enough.
Disclaimer: *grab some snacks, huge rant on its way*
November has been (and still is) absolutely hectic for me! In my opinion, all of the uni departments sat one day together and agreed to give as many assignments in the last two weeks as possible. I have one assignment due tomorrow (and I’m sitting now at 1:40am and writing this post, yeah), one group assignment to be uploaded by Sunday, one group presentation next Tuesday and another one the Friday after that.
On top of that, my last uni day is Friday, 1st of December, when I have three lectures, and then I have my 3 exams in the following order: TUE 5th, WED 6th and THU 7th of December. I kid you not, when I saw my exam schedule I felt my heart breaking.
And because I’m in my third year, it means that I need to apply for summer internships as well – research companies, write tailored cover letters, pass their online tests, book tickets, fly to the moon and never come back.
AND BECAUSE I LOVE CHALLENGES, I also go to interviews…
The good news is that I’ve got a temp Christmas job, which I believe would help me get one of the summer internships.
The bad news is that I start next week. Yes, on top of everything that’s going on in uni, now I also have to work. Thanks God it’s only 16 hours per week, but it’s still too much when you don’t have time for literally nothing.
As part of my course, I also have to do an internship during the academic year, and I’m really hoping to nail my interview for that on Thursday. The best part is that I can do it from home, and the worst is that.. well, it’s more work to do. Someone please send me some strength (coffee or pizza also work tho).
I also really wanted to do Blogmas, as I see it’s really popular here. I do have some ideas, but I can’t even take proper photos, because it’s getting dark at 2:30 and I usually don’t get home till 8. Ah, I’m struggling so much, I feel I’m letting myself down, I want to grow my blog and connect with more amazing people, but unless we get more than 24 hours in a day, that’s going to be a mission impossible (for me).
Keeping myself busy is really important for my health, because when I have nothing to do I end up in a hole, as I feel completely useless and terrible. But keeping myself THAT busy, well.. it’s a whole new story 😀
Anyways, thank you for reading (I know it’s super long and pointless and I apologize for wasting your time with nothing interesting). Here is my cover page for November (the idea isn’t mine obviously, I gathered some inspiration from Pinterest, but apart from that, I drew it myself). My to-do lists are very basic, because I waned to have everything nice and clean and see what’s coming next. I sometimes add ‘companies contacted’ section, and also ‘to buy list’. But I promise I’ve got some pretty nice ideas for December and I can’t wait to show them to you! Stay tuned for that. Sorry again, and hope you enjoyed your week!
P.S. I just wrote 584 word post in 20 minutes, why I’m struggling with my 2500 words essay almost a week already?!
