    why hello there,

    last year was not exactly the best of starts to university, but I passed (just) and I thought this would be a good idea to motivate me into achieving something better than 40 per cent, since people might (lol i doubt it) be watching my progress.

    Me:
    I'm in my second year at the University of Bristol studying German and Russian and good God did 1st year just about kill me

    TB1 units:
    1. German Language
    2. Russian Language
    3. Czech Language
    4. Introduction to Linguistics
    5. Structures and Varieties of German


    wow would you look at that - I like linguistics

    TB2 units:
    1. German
    2. Russian
    3. Czech
    4. Thaws and Freezes: The Soviet Union After Stalin


    after writing all that down, I've decided that this year might be the end of me (again)

    My goals:
    Last year I achieved a terrible (in my measly opinion) 40% in Russian and 53% in German. This was probably to do with a mixture of mental health problems and not actually doing any work. I swear I'll try this year, since my mental health is (somewhat) under control. I really want to get a 2:1 but I'm realistically aiming for a 2:2 due to anxiety promising to kick me directly in the brain multiple times over the coming year.

    other goals include-
    • reducing the use of brackets (pray for me),
    • finally finishing Stephen King's IT,
    • go to 80% of my lessons,
    • not panic about my year abroad


    well, it's going to be a bloody long year

    Leah

    P.S how the hell do I format a blog
    PPS I've figured it out
