I’ve been here for just over a week. At first, it seemed a little strange — almost as though I’d never left. But that feeling quickly subsided, because the past week has been quite busy. By keeping myself focused, I’d say that I’ve settled in pretty well. And things are starting to calm down.
So far, I’ve had some introductory welcome-back talks. My lessons will start in full, tomorrow.
I’ll be spending plenty of time in the library this year. I plan to hit the books harder than this guy. And I’ll treat this year as though it were a job. I’ll have to stick to a routine, work smart, and be sensible about going out.
Here I am, standing outside the David Wilson Library, which might become my second address:
One of the best things that anyone can hope to learn from going to university is the fact that you alone are responsible for your studies, for your work, and for yourself. The sooner people realise that, the better they will do, and the happier they will be. Others can sometimes lend a hand, but they can’t always lend both hands.
This is an exciting time for me. It is perhaps the last year in which I can fully devote my time towards improving myself, through reading and learning about what interests me. Once I enter the world of work, everything that I do will be aimed at improving the company.
It’s been nice to get back in touch with some of my old friends, who are still around. Many of them have already graduated. I’m trying to make the most of this year, because I know that it will go by in the flash of an eye.
This coming week, I’ll be attending the Festival of Careers, which will be the topic of my next article.
