My life – Your hands.

So, I am sorry to keep banging on about this but it is on my mind in a huge way.. so I though ‘Hey!  What better way to make a decision than to put a poll on my blog!’

No pressure or anything, my life is just in your hands.

So I made a list of pro’s and con’s as to whether or not I should drop out of my Social Science module.

These are as follows:

  • It would allow more time to be spent on my maths module
  • 1 good grade (i.e. maths) is better than 2 bad/average grades
  • I would have more free time to spend with the boyf and my friends and for things I actually enjoy (which is definitely important)
  • I really want to do some voluntary, mentoring work and it would allow me the time to do that
  • It would free up 30 credits for me to do a module I actually enjoy (I chose social science as my 30 credit free choice module..)
  • It will seriously reduce my stress levels
My concerns/con’s are
  • I had financial support for this and if I do my free choice module at the end of my degree I will probably have to pay
  • It will prolong my degree by 6 months
  • I will only have 60 credits at the end of this academic year and I really wanted 90
  • I will feel like a failure.

Please help by completing the poll! (I won’t really hold you responsible for any bad decisions – honest ;-) )

Beauty School Drop Out

Well, not actually beauty school.. just school.

Well, not technically school.. just a module.

I feel like a failure.

I just feel so overwhelmed and stressed at the moment and feel the only way I can deal with this is to cut some of the stressfulness from my life.

I mean, I have to keep the important things – like my blog.. right?!

So I have been thinking about my degree (you may need to concentrate here as it gets a bit complicated)

Basically, I am doing a degree in Leadership and Management.

The degree is made up of 360 credits.

330 of those credits are pretty much set up for you.  The other 30 is free choice.

I chose to do my free choice in Social Science.

What a mistake that was.

So at the moment I am doing a module in maths and a module in social science.

I just feel completely overwhelmed.

So here’s my thinking:

I would rather get a phenomenal good mark in one subject than an average/below average mark in two.

So I have made my decision and I am sticking too it.

Tomorrow I am calling the uni and withdrawing my place on the module.

The only thing that will stop me is them.
