Despite nearly killing myself with the workload in the previous term, I have decided, perhaps naïvely, that I need to accomplish more in my time. Carpe diem, as they say. I want to do more of what I want to do, whilst still accomplishing what I need to do. Resting has re-kindled my love for life, the eagerness to do and see everything! Therefore, it is not only my goal to achieve good grades in the second term, but to accomplish at least one of the following things:
a) Make more of my own clothes
b) Participate in more competitions to gain recognition of my work
c) Get a part-time job
Perhaps it's all the festivities that have surrounded me this glorious time of year that have inspired this decision; maybe I'm already anticipating New Years and the resolutions that it will dictate. Even though these things make me excited and eager to continue onto the next term, I worry that these extra activities will be the straw that breaks the camel's perfectionist back. I suppose that my first resolution should be: set accomplishable resolutions. And then actually complete them.
I also need to be less terrified of applying for jobs. I need to be less terrified, full-stop. How do I expect to get anywhere if I'm not willing to push the boat out?
Sorry about the almost completely unrelated ramblings today. Maybe I should take up journal writing instead so that this blog doesn't become a random stream of my consciousness.
Merry early Christmas!
