Returning to School

My July school holidays have come to a sad end. The two weeks flew by so quickly so now I unfortunately have to go back to school. It kind of sucks. I was meant to do a post at the start of the holidays about my goals for these two weeks but I sort of forgot… I am really good at this (please note sarcasm).

My biggest goal for these holidays was to finish crocheting a blanket that I had been working on for a while. I have spent to solid weeks working on it and I can see the end in sight. As of now, I am not yet finished but give it another week or so and it will be. Even though I haven’t finished, I am happy with my work because I know that I am capable of finishing. I am looking forward to the day when my blanket is finally finished.

Something I was looking forward to these holidays was watch Wimbledon. I am a Andy Murray supporter so I had high hopes for this years tournament. Unfortunately, injury got the better of him so he wasn’t able to progress. Congrats to Federer though. I didn’t think he still had it in him. Maybe next year will be Murray’s year.

Do I want to go back to school? Not really. Do I have to go back to school? Apparently so. You have to push through things that you don’t like so that one day it will be over. At least tomorrow EXO is having their comeback. There is something to look forward to.

I hope you have a nice day and that the universe will look kindly upon you.

The Feeling of Success

“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” – Mario Andretti

I think this quote sums up my past two weeks. So, I had my Year 11 ATAR exams during the past two weeks and I have already gotten my results back. I passed all of them! I did not think I had, especially my Japanese but as it turns out, all of my hard work has paid off.

I believe that if you want something badly enough that you will do everything in your ability to achieve it. A good example of this is my exams. I have never been good at exams, with me failing a couple last year. One of my goals for this year was to improve my study techniques and exam-taking skills. From Day 1, I have been putting in about 4 hours a night on school nights, and 6-8 hours on the weekend into my study. This was a huge jump for me as I was previously doing 1 hour a night and a couple on the weekend. I think that by passing all of my exams, and passing all of my classes (surprisingly) that I am doing the right thing for me. I needed the will to actually sit down and do the work, and I think that I now have it.

I have a lot of goals for this year and am on my way to achieving them. I believe that having goals are important because they give you the motivation to live life and to make use of your day. Hopefully, I can achieve as many possible before the year is up so that this year would actually mean something. I am so close to finishing my crochet blanket, understanding the content that I am supposed to in Japanese, and I am doing well in my classes. So far, this year is going the way I wanted.

I hope that everyone is where they want to be at almost half-way in the year and is happy with it. Good luck with your goals and the motivation to achieve them.
