Yesterday I got my results for my degree.
You are reading the blog of a student who has been awarded a Bachlour of Arts Honours degree in Journalism – Second Class Upper division!!! I got a 2.1!
Although it isn’t the 1st I had hoped for, considering what I have been through this year with mum being hospitalised & loosing my job, I am so happy to atleast have got a 2.1! All the stress paid off!!
So now I have to step into reality & try to find a job until I can go back to Korea! It’s scary!
Having been in education for 20 years, that’s it!! I will miss education that’s for sure! Who knows? I might do a masters in Korea! Hahaha
This Wednesday, I have to do a presentation and I have an essay due. Of course, I have left it all to the last minute.
Every year, every September and January to be exact, I say to myself that I will be good this year and start my assignments as soon as I get them. (-_-) Who am I kidding?!
I started my presentation today. It is almost 11pm and I have not finished it yet. I haven’t even started the essay that accompanies my presentation, which means I will start and finish it tomorrow.
If my modules for my Journalism were actually practice, I would not have this problem. What is the point in taking a Journalism course if it is 90% theory?! My writing has not improved as far as I know because I have only had one module which required me to write articles. The lack of practical modules has made me kind of regret not studying Film or Music. To become a Journalist, it is not necessary to have a Journalism degree and frankly, it is a waste of time.
Anyway, only 6 months of uni left for me! I can’t wait to start writing my dissertation! After I graduate, inshaallah, I will be in Korea! =D My blog will then be 70x more interesting!
In the mean time, wish me luck with this freaking presentation and essay!
