Be Kind

(picture from Pinterest)

So, I've come into the final few months of my degree, and safe to say I'm very scared about what will be next, but first I have to actually PASS university... help?

I got my grades back from last semester, they were good, I'm happy with one of them, but the other I wasn't so happy with, cue lots of crying, and generally beating myself up for it. But then I had a realisation, I did the best I could. In the last couple of weeks before the hand in date, I was really ill, sure I should have worked a little bit harder before that, and I am going to try and make myself work harder this term, but under the circumstances, I did really well, and I shouldn't beat myself up for a grade which is a little bit below my usual average.

If things don't go the way you planned, if you don't achieve the exact mark you feel you are meant to, thats OK. You can't change what has happened, but you can change how you view the situation, and maybe set yourself a few more rules for studying for next time. I've set myself strict (ish) rules for studying this semester, and I will really try my hardest to stick to it.

Just be kind to yourself!
