I Didn't Revise for My Mocks (and Why I'm Glad I Didn't)

Often as students, particularly the high-achievers or stubbornly ambitious, we are guilty of pushing ourselves too hard. The nature of the education system certainly doesn't help this behaviour either, what with the expectations for each student to perfectly balance their academic work, social life, extra-curricular, and more often than not a part-time job too. It is therefore no surprise when the pressure that usually keeps us motivated occasionally clutches our minds a bit too tight.

20 New Year's Resolutions for 2020

This year I'm deciding to do something I have never done before, and that is actually complete a New Year's resolution. I know it sounds quite pathetic that in 18 years of existing I've never been able to finish even one resolution, but I always got too busy! Or disinterested! Or frustrated that I couldn't complete it within 1 week of setting it and deciding that if I couldn't do it within a week I could never do it! ....I really need to work on that now or never attitude...

Dear Diary: What am I doing? (#1)

On the 1st January 2020 I turned 18, and didn't feel particularly thrilled. Yes, the prospect of voting and getting legally pissed up was exciting for a short while, but I was still left feeling as directionless as I had the previous 365 days of last year. That isn't to say I'm not excited about what's in store for 2020! I get to go travelling and begin my studies at university; however, I just can't help feeling like it's not really me working my way through these days. For a while i've wanted to create, or at least be a part of something bigger than myself.
