On Tuesday, the day finally arrived, the day I'd been counting down to for weeks, the last exam. Hopefully I don't need to sit any resists, so I can say it was the day I finished second year, but I'll have to wait until I get my results.
I'm quite a laid back person, my Mum used to call me horizontal I was so laid back. I'm not one to feel stressed out easily, until I returned to uni back in October, I don't think I'd ever felt very stressed. Which I'm very thankful for, as I don't cope with stress very well, and I'd been feeling quite stressed the last month. When walking out of my last exam at 10.15 am on Tuesday I felt free, lighter, a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders.
Even though I finished on Tuesday, Osian was still booked into nursery for the rest of the week. I've been playing catch up with things around the house, and enjoying some time to just put my feet up. Today I'm going to sort out my bedroom, which is filled with all my papers used for revision. If I was an organised person they'd have been filed away/recycled once I'd done each exam, but they all ended up in one big messy pile.
It doesn't quite feel like I'm off for summer yet though, maybe it will feel more like it next week, Osian will be home and we can start enjoying the holiday. I'm off for four months, so I thought it would be best for Osian to still go to nursery one day a week. Mainly so he was still used to going when he returns to going full time in October, but it will be nice for him to interact with the other children.
I haven't really been enjoying my course this year, but being able to have a whole four months off, and having loads of time to enjoy with Osian, it makes it feel worth it. It also makes me appreciate that I'm still in uni, I wouldn't get all this time off whilst in a job, well I don't think I would.
