“It is a woman’s prerogative to change her mind.”
I have always loved this quote and have used it in my defense of taking back a item of clothing only to go back and by the same thing, perhaps in a different colour, two days later. Sometimes things work out, and more often than not, they don’t. So here I am again, experiencing a sort of Déjà vu.
So in my last post, I was feeling very chipper about sitting exams and writing 10,000 words in 9 days to pass my second year. Over the years, especially since developing PoTS, I’ve found myself suffering from a ‘superwoman complex’ where I think that I can do everything and anything even though I’m blacking out twice a day or I’ve missed over 60% of my schooling. I hate letting people down and I hate not being able to manage things that normal people can.
As it turns out, you can’t write an essay on a topic you don’t know, similarly, you can’t sit an exam for a module that you only attended 3 lectures for. Correction, you can do both these things as long as you’re not expecting to pass.
After a complete mental/physical/spiritual breakdown (involving many tears and throwing up once or twice) I came to a solution and formulated a new plan, Woohoo.
Sounds good doesn’t it?
I’m super excited to be going back to the beautiful steel city, though I am going to miss Newcastle and all the things I had planned to do in my year off.
I’m moving in to a University house with 5 other 2nd and 3rd year girls, which is a bit scary but also super exciting. Our house is lovely. We have a front and back garden, two bathrooms and I have the biggest bedroom. Lucky me 🙂
In the next few weeks I’m planning on doing some nice summery things including visiting my Norwegian bestie Emilie next week!!!
So lots to be blogging about in the coming weeks, 🙂
Peace and love,
