Well, here I am, back once more and so on and so forth.
The end of an era has now passed and now a new era has begun. An era of… not being at university, or something.
The final exam for the final subject I needed to complete was something I didn’t feel I had too much trouble with which concerns me a little, but I feel as though, at the very least, I did well enough to pass. Of course the day is young and it is far too early to tell, but I feel I passed and now I am free… unless of course I decide to do one more semester of subjects, or in this case a trimester. On the plus side, it would be stuff that I’ve wanted to do but for some reason been unable to do so.
So now I’m here at work and, aside from yesterday which was a day of doing nothing and being at home resting, the business of work and life shall be kicked into a full gear.
I’m not sure how I’m meant to feel about the end of uni, but I do certainly feel a sense of relief. It was a period of time that I felt went longer than it should have, and it’s a period of time marked both by loss and gain. There were trials, there were tribulations but overall I came out okay and that’s more than I can ask for.
There should be something here about growing up, but we’re always growing so it doesn’t really matter. Well, usually we’re always growing. Sometimes you aren’t.
Well, what else is there to say? I can say that I’m at work, but I’ve already said that.
I think about my life where I was when I started the undergraduate course and where I am now and both a lot and not much has changed. Plenty of large shifts in my life, that’s for sure, but at the same time everything has remained relatively slow and subtle… I think.
Well, I don’t know what I think. I’m here and looking forward to being able to work on other stuff again and I’m typing rather slowly, but I don’t care as I’m feeling pretty relaxed about everything. That’s always a plus in my books.
Still, there will be more working hard in order to get the many a thing done as there is a lot that I’ve had to put aside over the past few months. I’m certainly looking forward to clearing the backlog and getting back on top of everything.
I’m looking forward to being able to do more bushwalking when I so choose, weather conditions permitting of course.
I think I’m just mostly looking forward to having a bit more flexibility to do other things. Realistically I had that flexibility beforehand, but now I have a little less juggling and balancing to worry about.
I’m looking forward to being able to be productive once more.
The time it took to write five-hundred words: 09:17:62
Not as fast as I’d hoped, but not overly fussed.
A bit bland and didn’t cover as much as I thought I would, but again, not overly fussed.
Written at work.
