Units chosen, optometrist booked

Well, I have another 10 days of nothingness left then I return to study. My units are chosen and I think I am ok with them. Actually no, I am shitting myself. Full of self doubts,and worried I will fail miserably and look like a right dick. I know I put way too much pressure on myself ( beat myself up over a 98% average for Sustainability at Swinburne for example). but what if I do fail?? I have never thought myself overly intelligent and now I am about to put myself out there.......shit.
Anyway, the units I am doing are:

Psychology
Sociology
Colonised land: Indigenous History
Digital Imaging: Foundations

I am still enrolled as a BA because I am not quite sure what to do. I am tossing up between Social Work, Social Science, Early Childhood Education and Psychology. I figure I should have a clearer idea by the end of this year. I really wanted to do Global Geography as I did start it last year and loved it but it just didn't work with the timetable and it meant 4 days at Uni with three finished after 6pm. Too hard with kids and Nienna would have missed out on dancing, so I swapped it for digital imaging. I figure it will be good to do something completely different anyway. I still have credits up my sleeve for this year so will probably do 2 units next semester instead of 4.

Oh, and yes I need glasses again I think, thus the optometrist. Can barely see stitches when I knit at night and we can't have that can we!

Best Wishes,

Honestly, they wouldn't have accepted your placement if they had any doubt about your intellectual ability to finish.

Life can throw things at us that may cause us to fail miserably. The thing is anyone that can average 98% being a mother of 2 has earned her space.

Kind Regards
Belinda

Gosh-that sounds just like me! I'm tossing up between early childhood education, community development & social work (and also have interest in psych!). I'm studying both BA (Community Development) via OUA and Cert 3 children's services-hopefully will work it out. Good luck and all the best for your studies this year!

The subjects sound like a great mix, Kelli. Part of me is jealous - I wish I could go and do my Developmental Psych and Education degrees now, at this age, instead of from 17 y.o. Enjoy your opportunity to study and don't be hard on yourself, you're doing great! xx

Take a step back, take a deep breath and realise that in the big scheme of things who gives a f**k what your scores are...the fact that you're out there and giving it a go is an amazing achievement.
