So, I discovered that when someone you’ve known for a very long time, who you knew was significant in your life but didn’t realise just how much them going away could effect your life…. now I have learnt.

My sister has been away for a couple of months and I have missed her a lot. When she left, my phone was stolen, so I couldn’t communicate with her for a while, had a birthday celebration that I was looking forward to soooo much that I stuffed it up by turning up so drunk I couldn’t rmbr or appreciate the night, instead made a complete fool of myself. It was a joke. So what did I do….

Join a dating website, cuz recently, a friend I lost to cancer mentioned that I had been single for some time and was worried that I make myself so busy that I don’t have time for a relationship. Went on a number of dates in a month and found someone special. Very special, in just one week fell in love and had my heart broken that very same week. He loved me too, but his family didn’t approve due to religion and now we’re apart and hurting.

And I am strugglin, I have 2 essays, 2 exams, all due within 2 weeks, a placement portfolio, placement application to do and I can’t see me doing it the way I am feeling and keeping on top of it. I would rather fail just so that I could re-sit just to have a proper go at it a month later when the pressure is less. Is anyone else struggling out there to manage their personal life alongside their academic life???
