Ok , so when I first made the commitment to start blogging like a week ago, I made myself promise that I would blog 5 days a week, no excuses. I would take the weekend off for family commitments, to catch up on my studies, and to plan what to write next or if inspiration struck me, I could start writing drafts. Believe it or not, most of my posts are written during these family parties where I have no one of my age to strike up a conversation with and so I am huddling on my phone, typing away while aunties around me try to catch a glimpse on who I am texting so furiously.
I have just started my final semester of my degree in Biotechnology with 1 core unit and 2 electives. (3 electives at the start but I dropped one off as schedule was getting over-hectic (is over-hectic even a word?)). I tutor English to secondary level kids for scholarship exams on Sundays and I recently have volunteered in this mentoring program of RMIT, in2science, which is basically going to a secondary level school in the area that you live in and guide and advise the students about the differences of secondary and tertiary level of education and how exciting university life is. So I go there on Mondays. Saturday and Friday evenings are booked in for family get togethers. Rest of the week, it’s university. Now normally I am fine with all this because its going pretty chill at university for the first two weeks. But when your lecturers start piling you up with assignments and assessments, that’s when the balance tips over. Of course the fact that I procrastinate on my uni work just serves as a cherry on top of the huge cake of crazy chores.
The deadline for this mini (look how deceiving these lecturers can be while naming their assignments (it’s not MINI at all!!)) assignment tutorial task is 5 pm tomorrow. And wonders of wonders, why am I (the master procrastinator) doing it a day before, you may ask? Well, it’s not to do with the fact that I have straightened my ways (aww hell no!!), but I have a lecture from 8:30 to 11:30, then an hour break, then a tutorial from 12:30 to 1:30 and a practical from 2 to 6 p.m. So by the time, I exit the laboratory, I will have missed the deadline. Hence, the struggle to submit it tonight is real.
You know when you are doing an assignment at the last-minute but there is always the distractions of social media bugging you and hence you can’t focus? Well, my guilty conscience wouldn’t let me do my not-so mini assignment tutorial task until I actually blogged and hence I present to you my word vomit.
I am sorry, there wasn’t actual content to blog today, but I wanted to let you know behind the scenes of the cause and that in future, if my posts seem a bit off, you will know why. I will still blog 5 days (crap content or not). That is a promise I promise to keep (insert some inspirational quote to make you weep) (wow,that rhymed).
