I’ve decided to take a new mental approach to my life as it is now, specifically in regards to being a student. I officially only have 7 months left of being a student and the realisation of that is actually devastating.
Let’s face it: being a student is stressful. Very stressful. Deadlines, starting over and finding your groove once again every time you start a new chapter, editing, reading a whole bunch of information your brain refuses to process, paraphrasing, referencing, not to mention the financial aspect of being a student.
However, I’ve recently realised it’s less stressful (or maybe just a different type of stress) than “real life”. I’ve recently started to appreciate the variety being a student brings to my life. Two days a week, I work at my part-time job. One day a week, I do work experience. Three days a week, I am in the library with the flexibility of being able to take a lunch break whenever I want and for as long as I want, as well as take a coffee break to meet a friend if I should so desire.
In seven months time, I am hoping to finally be working in my chosen field, which is amazing and scary at the same time. In the mean time, I am going to enjoy the routine I have now, because the variety and flexibility is pretty amazing. Life is pretty amazing.
