Today, I finally said goodbye to summer school after an intensive six week study period. At times, I wondered, “what the hell was I thinking?” but I managed to pull through & it feels pretty damn amazing knowing I’m two units closer to finishing my degree!
The reason I did two units over the summer instead of one (like normal people), was the possibility of me finishing my degree five months earlier than planned and that far outweighed these six measly weeks (I’ve always been a pro’s and con’s list-kinda-girl!)
And you know what? I managed just fine these past six weeks. Sure I had to put the blog aside (it takes me forever to write posts because I stop and think about a dozen times) but I still had a life outside of work & university.
There were lunch dates, pool parties, early morning weekend markets, breakfast dates, Australia Day celebrations, a lot of beach time, wine tasting on a weeknight, lunch dates, a road trip, a very life changing moment with big sis (more about that later), a birthday boat party AND twice-weekly personal training sessions (because if summer school wasn’t enough, I also set myself a goal on the 2nd of January to be my absolute fittest by 9th February….talk about piling up my plate!)
2013 is looking good so far! Here’s a few snaps from the past six weeks:
I am OBSESSED with smoothies!
I’ve also managed to go relatively chocolate free thanks to these bad boys (prune raw balls with a whole lotta healthy things thrown in)
Checking out new breakfast spots recommended by friends- absolute favourite this one! [Ootong & Lincoln, South Fremantle]
& of course, the boat party of all parties! There’s me with my hand in the air within the first 30 minutes. Things didn’t end well!
What’s in store for me this year? a few weeks break & then a whole lot more uni now that I’m in my final year (hopefully!)
