Is it weird that I feel a bit lost now that final results are out and I have achieved my goal?
I live in a constant state of needing to have something to do. I’ve never been content to just have nothing to do. When that happens, I find myself making and writing down lists just to have something to go on when I find myself sitting around doing nothing. It’s a little bit ridiculous when I feel the need to write down the leisure activities I want to do, e.g. watch a movie, read a book.
I guess I’ve been working towards getting into university for the past year now. Actually, if I’m getting all technical and stuff, I’ve really been preparing for uni since I first started school in Kindergarten. I mean, we go to primary school to prepare us for high school; and we attend high school to prepare for university. It’s a never-ending pathway until the day we die, always preparing for the next stage of our lives.
I’m also a weird one in that my immunity tends to go down right before I receive any news that may be distressing or when I’m just plain stressed about anything. This is why I tend to come down with a cold every time it comes to getting my results back or before any stressful event, which is ironic because those are usually the occasions in which you definitely do not want to be sick.
On a happier note, I finally cut my hair. I’ve been wanting to cut it for a few months now but left it long so that I could style it for my Year 12 formal. Now that it’s much shorter, it feels so much more freeing and has made washing my hair a lot easier. Am I just really lazy or does anyone else think that long hair is really not worth the hassle of washing and drying for so long?
Having shorter hair is so much more comfortable than having long hair, especially here in Australia where we are in our summer holidays. Cutting it was also a way of releasing myself from the stress that was high school, and looking forward into the next stage of my life. Everyone says that the first few years of uni are a breeze, so fingers crossed that it is indeed the case. Although, they also say that every exam block is like retaking final high school exams all over again, repeated over and over every year, so I’m definitely not looking forward to that.
I’m only two months away from starting uni, so I’m definitely hoping that uni life is much more different and I get a break from high school life.
