Academic Scholarship

Tonight, I attended an awards evening at my University and was presented an academic scholarship from Professor Tanya Byron. This isn't something I want to write loads about, more just something for me to look back on in years to come and remember. For once, I am proud of myself for achieving an award (even if part of me still craves for better - perfection maybe?), I know that attaining the fourth highest grade, out of the faculty of Arts and Sciences is a pretty good achievement. 
And what actually made the evening more special, was the fact my Mum and brother drove 2 hours to come and see me. It was really quite a special night.

Arh, that's amazing! I know craving 'perfection' will always be there, but being proud is definitely a start. There is a lot to be proud of. I'm still having to teach myself to be ok to be deemed 'good' at something rather than 'outstanding'. I guess learning to appreciate and be happy comes into it. What I'm trying to say is-well done! x
