You might be thinking, how or why is this tweet relevant at all? But actually, I saved it for just the last few lines. The words ‘Season of Struggle’ sound like a really great way to describe this month for me.
Albeit it’s gone by very very quickly, there were a lot of ups and downs and I found myself almost burnt out with ‘creating content’ which I knew I didn’t want happening but prepared myself for anyway. It wasn’t a surge of added pressure or anything, more so the fact that I just don’t have the time because I want to push all my energy into this uni deadline. And rightly so I think.
I could talk about being productive, finding tips to be motivated and testing out new routines but it wouldn’t mean a thing if I wasn’t truthful about the situation which I’m sure many students right now are going through. As deadlines loom over our heads over the next few weeks, we can find ourselves almost bored with the work ahead of us. But I’m hoping that with each new week, there’s always something new to look forward to.
But reading that last line from the tweet; ‘Grow through it & become who you know you can be’ is an interesting one. Talking about how quickly this past month has gone has also made me reflect how fast the academic year is going by. But I suppose we have to enjoy every moment, regardless of the struggle and simply, grow through it.
