      "just because you took longer than others doesn't mean you failed "
 My dad once told me when I was a child " the sky is only the beginning"

2/11/2016 I graduated from University. Undergrad completed.

To date, uni has been the most challenging, rewarding and stressful time in my life along with a lot of memorable moments and some amazing friendship I feel will last a lifetime. With all the things I've learned in uni the last 4 year nothing beats real life experience.

So if you're about to start uni or  you are currently in uni this one is for you.

The newbies,


Just know if you're about to start the journey of uni life, it's not going to be easy. There will be tears, you will question everything and most definitely there will be late night stressing and freaking out.
No matter how long your course is you will at one time or more cry and want to just give up.

When that time(s) comes or if it's already here
1st thing you need to do is,
-close the book or laptop or whatever device you are using to study.
-step away from it.
- now here come the cliche. Take a deep breathe in, hold it and exhale.
From one person that constantly gets anxiety attacks to another, you can't control everything, inhale confident and exhale doubt.
Inhale. Exhale. Repeat. 

In the wise words or Kendrick Lamar "you gon' be alright". OK, he said " we " but you get the point.

Never ever to give up.
Don't let anyone tell you when you are done.
In this age of technology and accessibility, all the knowledge we want is at our finger tip, you have no excuse and reason to give you and not get back up if you fall a couple of times.
It's the getting back up that matters at the end of the day.

Go at your OWN pace.

Don't be 100% dependent on others and most of all believe in your ability to finish what you started. 

Your route might be different but as long as you keep focused you can get there.

Be a go-getter.

If the door is close go through the window just get yourself where you want to be, don't take one person's no as the be all and end all. Train your mind to see positivity in every situation.

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm - Churchill

FAIL. First. Attempt. In. Learning

To conclude uni is what you make it. Find a balance that suits you,

"all work and no play makes jack a dull boy and all play and no work makes jack a mere toy "- Maira Edgeworth

You got yourself this far you can go all the way, upwards and onwards.
