Thought I'd set up an optimistic thread where you can reflect over this past academic year

Doesn't have to be just work-related, though.

What have you done to be proud of?

Eep! You are to be commended, that's quite a task...

I have finally set clear career aims that I may actually be able to pull off Wish they'd hurry up though - roll on 2011!!! I have managed something really big for me and that is to tell my parents I have a job lol I decided to stop lying and just tell the truth. I have never done that throughout uni and it stressed me out so much, so I am making a genuine effort to be bluntly honest.

Sweet f.a.

Honestly. There's still half a year (ish) of school left, maybe I'll do something interesting then. But no, all I've done is pass my first NAB of my Higher exams (This may require translation from ScotQual terms), with only two other people in my class. So now I know I'm at least (or most) at C level. Yaaaaay. :rolleyes: My lack of achievements depresses me. But the important thing is that there's plenty of time to achieve something I might try actually writing part of my book instead of playing around with the characters.

It's not so bad tbh. Sounds a bit sadist but I enjoy injecting myself daily and making my fingers bleed to check my levels :o:

Now that I have to reflect on it…
This year, I:

- Took more responsibilities, I became a Peer Mentor, a Student Rep in both my subjects and a Student Ambassador.
- Got more involved in uni life, I was running two societies, one that I had created.
- Took up a new sport, and started rowing, which was very enjoyable although I'm considering coxing instead of rowing, in my 4th year.
- Managed to get in the riding competition team, and although I didn't stay too long, I still managed to do very well in a competition .

- Worked, as a waitress at Old Trafford and as a Student Ambassador for the uni, who liked me enough to ask me to come back :p:.
- Was placed in one of the best suite when working at Wimbledon, although it wasn't my cup of tea at all.

- Managed to have the Russian department to create more modules, and it worked, the future 2nd years now have 5 new modules for next year!
- Managed to get the same department to buy more books, and it worked again, so we have updated versions of textbooks in our libraries.
- Set up a new scheme, to help student on the academic side. It's called PASS and it's students helping students, it will start next year.

And the most important of all

- I passed my 2nd year and can now go abroad!
