February: Study Update


It is official, I have been studying for about a month now and I have been really enjoying it so far. I want to share Study Updates with you all, most likely on a monthly basis, so I can tell you all about how it is going and what it is like to study part time while having a full time job!

Challenges:
  • Time - this is one that I am struggling with the most. I have to use my time wisely and I can be so tired after work that I can't concentrate on studying which is mega frustrating. So on my days off or the odd evening that I do actually feel more awake I have to get on with studying instead of blogging or Netflix.
  • Getting Back Into It - obviously I studied at school but that was going on 6 years ago. I also did a couple of years at uni but it was the wrong time for me. So I have really had to make an effort to crack down and study as I am ultimately doing this for my future.
  • Courage - at uni I was terrified of going to lectures and tutorials but this time I have had to get up the courage to do the tutorials. Granted they are online and only 2 hours once every other week but it was still quite scary doing my first one.
  • First Assignment - it is such an odd feeling doing an assignment but it also isn't how it was when I was studying before, I can take it at my own pace but obviously have it in by the deadline. I am still yet to write it so I am a little nervous and it will take some getting use to but it will be such a relief when I have completed the first one.
Benefits:
  • Rewarding - I get a great deal of satisfaction from doing this course and I am definitely feeling the benefits from it. I am learning something new everyday and I can use it in my job and day to day life which is so rewarding.
  • Productivity - I am finding myself being much more motivated and productive. I know I said time was a challenge, and it most certainly is, but the time I have got, I am using wisely and being so productive in the allocated time frame. Not only with studying but organising, bullet journalling and blogging...or at least attempting to!
I am truly enjoying learning again and for anyone debating it, I highly recommend it. I think the challenges I am currently facing can be overcome with practice and finding something that works for me.

I am so excited to see what the future holds!
