Well, it’s been a while since I’ve wrote a blog post, since January. My life has been very hectic and finally I am back on top of things! Here’s a little update on what has happened throughout my life in the last 3 months!
So let’s start with all the good news!
I have spoken before about my goals for 2018 and my new career path. Since September, I have been attending college doing an Access course to get myself into University to follow my dreams of being a Chiropractor.
In March, I had an interview with AECC which is a chiropractic college down in Bournemouth. Being a chiropractor is my dream career path and I was so scared and nervous for my interview. Despite having a lot of hiccups before my interview – snow and car troubles – I finally set a date which I was able to make and attended my interview.
The interview day lasted around 3 hours and during my time there I had another tour of the campus since I had attended an open day so it was nice to refresh the memory and feelings of the campus. Again, it’s felt like home and felt so comfortable there. My interview was with 3 other potential students so I got to meet new people who had different backgrounds to me and it was interesting to understand their points of view and what they wanted to achieve in life. After the tour of the campus, we had a taster of what a lecture would be like. One of the things I loved about the lecture was that they used work booklets to keep all the units and information in one place which is a dream for me!
1 hour lecture flew by and it was finally interview time. Since I suffer with anxiety, I felt like I had messed up my interview as it was a group one. I left the interview kicking myself because I was too quiet and thought I had thrown away my chances of getting into University and it felt like the end of the world for me. We were told we would find out the verdict in the next few days and they dragged like hell for me. I got myself into such a state. All my friends and family were convinced I had got in and I just didn’t feel that way.
3 days later, I received an email from the uni offering me a conditional offer for Year 1 instead of their foundation year. I was over the moon and still am. I just have to get my grades and I will be there following my career path.
College and work have taken over my free time at the moment since I have been solely focused on getting those grades to get me in.
Over the last couple of months, I have learnt a lot of valuable lessons and found out who is actually there for me.
End of March, my relationship with my at the time boyfriend ended and it was not the cleanest of breaks. I’m not here to bitch and whine about the break up but I learnt a lot of valuable lessons and also found out that I am stronger than I thought.
During this break up, I realised that I am a lot closer with my friendship group which I now have because of my ex and I would not have been able to get through without those girls. They were my safety net and reminded me of who I actually am.
I lost who I was during that relationship and found I had changed who I was and not for the better. I wish him the best in life and hope he achieves all his dreams which he had when we were together.
This breakup also affected college for me because I had an exam and coursework due in not long after that. I pulled through and managed to boss the exam and surprised myself of how devoted I am to my course.
Now, I am in the best place possible. I am back to my old cheerful self thanks to my amazing support group of friends and family.
They say ‘one door closes and another one opens’ and they are not wrong. I’ve met someone new and he’s done nothing but support me, understand me and make me extremely happy. In the short amount of time that we have known each other, he has ticked things off my list of things to do and showed me a whole new look on life. He’s like a breath of fresh air in my life and I’m excited to see where things go for us!
So long story short, I’m back doing what I love and finding that balance in my life.
