Like any university student across the country, I could not wait to submit my last course for the 2nd year of my study. While doing all of this work, I think have had more cups of coffee than is recommended for human consumption.
I looked forward to the three long months of summer break during which time I would not have to worry about early morning lectures or late evenings in the library rushing to get my work completed. I have had a brilliant two weeks spent visiting my family and friends in Lithuania. The sunshine was better than in the UK, which I did not complain about and mum’s home food was the best!
During the course of the last month I had been like a kid on Christmas morning, excited in anticipation every time I turned on my laptop to check if I had received any results for the coursework.
I have now received my results for the coursework I submitted and I am satisfied with the outcomes but not overjoyed. Again, like any other student I regretted not spending more time studying or choosing a different topic and even blaming the lecturer who marked my coursework for not giving me more marks which I thought I deserved.
It is daunting to think of the amount of work that is expected of me in order to achieve the scores I would like. It becomes even more important when I think, how much of my future life could depend on this academic year. No wonder I lose sleep thinking of university two full months before my first lecture.
I keep getting told by people around me to relax and enjoy the remainder of my time off from university as this could be the last time in my life where I get so much time off. And this is exactly what I would advise all of you, have fun, everything will be fine.
