It has been a while since my last entry but finally, I am here and here is my first post of the new year. I start by wishing you a ‘Happy New Year’ despite these troubling times. I hope you were all about to have a nice Christmas and New Year regardless. I would love for you to tell me in the comments what you did, or what presents you got. Or maybe you just really enjoyed the time off if you were able to rest.
For me, my studies have been consuming a lot of my time and energy. More energy than I have got half the time. I have not been able to do the things I love or some days even the bare necessities due to a lack of energy. The things that have kept me going are the hopes of a better 2021, with less stress and more adventures. I know that this is months away though, which is the most difficult part for me. It is really hard to get yourself motivated every day and balance everything when you feel like this. But the main thing is to have an end goal that you keep chipping away at in little chunks, so that the mammoth task feels more manageable.
Regardless of the summer or lack of a ‘true summer’ we might have this summer, I will look forward to the sunny days, the rest and the peace. I thinking studying is difficult enough as it is, but in the middle of a pandemic too is nigh on impossible. Especially as students and those in education in England have been treated so poorly. Maybe it is similar in your country too? It is bizarre to think as our country goes into a third lockdown, that we are expected to produce the same quality and quantity of work. I can’t get my head around it in all honesty.
How do you feel about 2021 and what are you looking forward to?
