I’m finding myself a little overwhelmed as I start to write this post. Firstly, I am a little behind due to sickness. Secondly, given that there are only five days left before we adjourn for the seasonal festivities, there is a general consensus amongst myself and my fellow students, that these last four months seem to have flown by at an alarming rate! Or, in the immortal words of Douglas Adams “Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so…”
It is rather perversely amusing to see the varying degrees of panic on students’ faces, as they rush to complete assignments by the various deadlines. Of course, the amusement quickly fades away as I realise that I am in exactly the same position. However, I have to recognise that from a certain perspective, the hardest part of my undergraduate journey has already been completed. In the same sense that the first step to solving a problem is admitting that you have a problem in the first place, then actually attending and completing the first semester, having chosen to go down this higher educational path, is very much that step.
I guess as I continue to learn to walk at this undergraduate pace, there will be times when I trip and fall, but it is nice to know, should that happen again (as it already has at least once), then there are plenty of outstretched arms ready to lift me back up again and hold me steady as we all walk the same path…Leave a comment
