Hey guys! I haven't been checking in much because most days I'm not feeling so great and it's not interesting for you guys if I just post 'feeling rubbish, blah, flat'. I'm not feeling great today, but some really good things have happened. My mum got a new job, and I got my first semester exam results back. Despite struggling severely with my then-undiagnosed depression, the hard work, sweat and tears I put in paid off. I got an average of 91% and I am once again top in my year.
For those who are not familiar with UK grading, 40% = third, 50% = lower second, 60% = upper second and 70% = first, with a 2:1 or 1st being regarded as a very good degree. Marks above 80% are very rarely given out.
I should be absolutely ecstatic, because those results would amaze me even if nothing had been wrong at all. Unfortunately I've got a bit of a low mood today, so I mostly feel relieved, but hopefully when I come back up I will be able to feel as good as I should be feeling.
If you believe everything you read, better not read.
