Okay, I admit it.  Since the events of my week long 'break', I have been feeling tres unmotivated.  I have been wondering why I'm doing this when my family life takes up 99% of my time.  What am I going to do with an Arts degree?  What do I really want to be when I grow up?  Well, today I feel like I'm ready to jump back in with all the gusto I had when I started -  I got a high distinction on my last essay!!!  I had to stop myself from jumping up and down in the class room!!!  It's amazing how my spirits lifted and suddenly, I had hope.  Hope that maybe I really can do this university stuff.  Hope that it really will lead me to something I'm good at, other than being a Mum!!!  I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up but I know the persistence and effort it takes to get this degree will certainly lead me somewhere good.  If only they gave out distinctions for parenthood, maybe it'd give me the confidence and reassurance I need to deal with my "troubles"!


  1. Woo hoo! Congratulations! It really feels good, doesn't it?

  2. Well done you - mature students rock! Glad to hear you feel positive again. It is hard to stay motivated when stuff at home seems to take precedence, well done!


If you don't have anything nice to say, please don't say anything at all!

I've done it!!!

Well, I've finally done it!! Got accepted into Uni AND created a blog!!! After searching for insightful websites to help me tackle my journey into academia at my ripe old age and coming up with nil, I decided to start one of my own. I hope this blog will encourage anyone who has ever doubted their own abilities, to put one foot in front of the other and achieve their ambitions, desires, dreams...no matter what they are. If anyone has any inspiring stories to share, I would love to hear them. I love an inspiring story!!!
