Chin-up Tuesday #2

All the motivational posters in this series are my own!

Time for another bout of Tuesday motivation.

I found this quote in my journal from last year and it still resonates with me. I think it’s very useful to remember that everything you learn will help you later on, whether it’s academic or practical or even just something like figuring out how to deal with a certain type of person. You’re not wasting your time – no matter how boring or irrelevant or seemingly useless, it will all come together to help you build and refine your understanding of the world. (As far as I can recall, this was the article that got me on this train of thought sometime last year.)

 

Here’s my look-forward-to list for this week:

New laptop
My current one is very, very slow, so I’m treating myself to something flash when I go back to uni next week. I think I need some reward for working (almost) full time over the summer holidays when I could have been at the beach, or doing creative things, or at the very least working somewhere…else.

Blog with Pip
I’m starting a blogging e-course next week! It’s run by Pip from Meet Me at Mikes, who is lovely and runs one of the only blogs I’ve consistently followed and enjoyed ever since I first found out that blogging was a thing back in 2009. So that’s all a bit exciting.

O-Day
I’ve never been to an orientation day in my life before, but apparently it’s time to buck the trend because Ali Barter is going to be there and she is a GEM and a LEGEND. Give her song ‘Girlie Bits‘ a listen if you haven’t already, it’s a banger.

Vidcon
I know I put this on my last list, but now it’s official. It’s a Thing. A Thing that is really happening. My flights are booked and my ticket is bought. Ohmygod.
