So, How's Uni Going?

Oh how much I get asked that question these days.

Truth be told, my new life is taking a bit of getting used to. I have about 12 contact hours a week of uni, 19 hours a week of working as an EA, and minimum 12 hours a week of working online at home with another company (which, my friend, never let anyone tell you working from home is a breeze). Top that with having a social life, keeping up with 2-3 gym visits per week, preparing all meals, tending to other appointments and commitments and keeping a house, (OK, failing a little there right now), and I am one busy girl. Including studying is a struggle.

I now have 3 diaries - uni, personal and work. It is hectic, my whole life is scheduled (I have put lunch and coffee with friends in my diary which is so not me), but I wouldn't have it any other way. My day today started at work at 8.30am-3.30pm, 4pm-5pm was uni, then work at home from 7pm-11pm. Every day is a similar story. Sleepy!

But not whinging, I wouldn't have it any other way. I will get there.

The actual subjects themselves, well, I am only doing 2 - 1 is insanely easy, one, physiology, is more challenging for my brain. Not ashamed to admit this stuff does not come naturally!

So that's how it's going. Insanely busy, very tiring, taking getting used to, but I made the right decision. 110%.

Anyone else had a massive life change lately? Or some advice from one in the past?

Stay well,

  1. Wow, such full on days! But you sound super organised & you're enjoying it which is great :) yay for studying nutrition!

  2. They are super full on, but yes I am loving it. Yay for nutrition indeed!

  3. Wow, yes sounds very busy!! Good on you for working so hard to find a balance. & yep, who cares if your house is a mess ;) Some subjects didn't come naturally to me, either: chemistry, anatomy (loved it but just too much content shoved into one little unit!!). you'll get there! Great work, lovely.

  4. That's what it is Heidi - they shove so much into a small amount of time. They told us the first two weeks was just learning everything taught in year 12 sciences for the people that didn't do year 12 science (me!) and then we move on.

    So! much information.

    But I'll get there!
