Dear blogging community, today has been a milestone in my life regarding to education. I cannot believe I have finished my first year at uni with really attractive grades. I mean, I was only doing a bridging course after I failed to get any offers for universities for 2009 after my HSC. However it took alot for me to reconsider wasting a whole year to re-do it all again. To spend countless hours perfecting essays, consulting the thesaurus, organising appointments with lecturers and tutors, driving all the way into the uni for a book or to hand an assignment in, all in a hektic year with my mother being so ill with her treatment. To start over again is a brave step and I am so thankful I did not give up on my academic ability and pushed through. I am so thankful to the University of Newcastle because without their Newstep program, I would be a very poor essay writer and (in my eyes a failure) working at Coles and not doing what I have wanted to do since I was 14 years of age, enter the design industry. Only in the past 2 years have I wanted and craved to become more creative and be the person inspiring others. I have come a long way and I have so far to go but I do not regret anything. I do not look back at my HSC grades and sob, instead I look forward to future success and opportunity which I hope will come to me in the coming years.
I have grown as a person, I trust myself, I believe in myself and I cherish all that I have
So my beautiful bloggers, if at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again.
