So today is, as they say, the first day of the rest of my life. I physically shuddered while writing that line, but all cringing aside, this is where I start making a better life for myself.
I just came out of my last exam for this year, meaning my first year of university is now completely over and done with. I went in with a "as long as I pass" kind of attitude, and I came out thinking "well, at least I did what I could". It wasn't my best run, but all I need is a 40%. My takeaway from this is that I just have to put a little more work in next year. But isn't that the whole point of a fresh start? You lookat where you're failing, and you get better. I think, at the very least, I've scraped a pass, so for now I don't need to worry about school for about three and a half months.
In other news: I'm on my way to the gym now to sign up for a membership (the cheapest one available, of course). I just need to get my grubby trainers out the bottom of the cupboard and promise myself that I'll use my time wisely. I'm thinking three or four times a week is a good way to go, but for the first couple of weeks it's going to be absolutely-whenever-i-can-get-there.
Later on, I've got chapter thirteen of Hide to edit, and a whole lot of food shopping to do. Today is going to be a productive day.
I just need to force myself away from the canteen macaroni cheese.
