Hello lovely readers,
Recently, I have been posting some more personal posts as opposed to my usual motivation/talk tips. The main reason why is because I have gone through some changes this week, such as attempting to sleep earlier, watch some dramas to ease the stress, stay on task at uni, be productive, or more often that not, trying to write things that I need to get off my chest.
This all might sound a bit dry coming from your average uni student, but trying these new things have been a long-term goal of mine. And so far, it’s been a fairly good progress.
However, this brings me to the next point. Earlier this morning, my seminar leader (a.k.a. tutor) for Constitutional Law announced that our marks for the mid-semester interim assignment would be out. So the marks got released at 5pm, and to save the shame (as I was sitting in the Law Library studying), I dimmed my laptop screen to the lowest setting ensuring that people walking by wouldn’t be able to see the grade. Anyways, I refreshed the page, and the next thing you know, I was overwhelmed with disappointment.
Just to be sure, I refreshed my page again, but the grade was still the same. Right then and there, I just felt like all my energy levels depleted and shrivelled up like my efforts were. However, this wasn’t the only low grade I got this year. In one of my accounting subjects, I also received 55% on a mid-semester test from last month. But to make matters worse, the 55% from the law subject was probably the first time I received such a low grade on an assignment in my three years at university. Yes, I know it’s not a fail, but I can’t help thinking I tried so hard and was expecting a decent grade.
Three years, and all I’m seeing every year is a decrease in my grades. Still no distinctions or HD’s, no nothing, just disappointment to say the very least.
However, I’m trying to stay as optimistic as I can, because I know you shouldn’t let your grades dictate your intelligence, potential, efforts, or knowledge.
So, here’s to a new a tomorrow everyone 🙂
