Third Year

This weekend has been a manic one, as I've made the final journey up to Uni to move into my new house. I arrived one day earlier than my other housemates, as I worked all day yesterday, but it gave me a short amount of time by myself, which I very much appreciate, to unpack and settle in.

Today has been a chilled Sunday. I woke the latest I've woken since coming back from Thailand, which only tells me that I was definitely exhausted after working pretty much everyday this week. I have spent most of my time catching up with the girls and settling everything in. Our new house is absolutely lovely, and it still feels very much like we're staying in a hotel rather than our home for the next 9 months.

Tomorrow is the first day of my third and final year at Uni. It feels very surreal to be going back - the summer has been life changing but also very long, so getting back into an academic routine may take longer than I think. I also still can't believe how quickly time has flown as it really does feel like yesterday that I was a vulnerable fresher, embarking on a new adventure in the big, wide world. However, I am looking forward to it - I am in the best psychological place that I have been for years, which really I am very grateful for. Third year is by far the hardest and most demanding year, and it will require energy and hard work to be able to meet my own expectations. But not only that, I want this year to be memorable too. I want to socialise with friends, discover new places and be able to enjoy my final year here. I want to create a good work/life balance, as it's the one thing that I believe is missing. I am an all or nothing girl, which leads to either exhaustion or insanity, and that isn't healthy for me.

My instinct tells me that this year is my year. I have the ability to fuel myself correctly, enjoying learning and being a student once again, and embrace life. It really is time to roll my socks up and make every minute count.
