FIRST CLASS

This post isn't a lifestyle, review or photo kind of post. It's an old school, sit down and just type sort of post because on Friday, I officially found out that I'll be graduating with a First Class Psychology degree. And you know what? It's not everyday you can write that so I wanted to make the most of it.

I hope this doesn't come across as arrogance but I am actually really proud of myself. I went to uni 3 years ago, and I said to my grandparents 'I've come to Uni to get a first'. They looked at me and replied with 'well, you can certainly try', knowing full well that it's not all that easy. And it's not really, I've had to work my arse off to get it but I'm so pleased that I have. Not only that though, I've turned my life around completely and recovered from an eating disorder, which makes me even prouder.

I think what I've realised is that if you put your mind to something, anything, and if you really want it badly enough, you will achieve it. The mind is a very powerful thing, and in most cases, it's mind over matter.

If you work hard and don't give up, you can do anything you want to.

That's absolutely amazing Sam! Wow! Seriously so proud of you babe! You have every right to be proud of yourself, especially as you've worked so hard to get to where you are right now. And considering everything else you've been through, battled, overcome, and won, I don't think you should be anything but immensely proud! I know I am! <3
