Hello everyone. I cannot believe it has been over a week since I last posted. Today I was again browsing the website My Vintage Vogue, a collection of vintage fashion photos and designers from various decades. There appear to be many new inspiring pictures since I lasted viewed the website and since the 1950s/60s are may favourite vintage decades for fashion, my post is largely focused on that time.
Recently I received some comments about whether or not I decided to continue at university this semester and I have been meaning to write about this issue for awhile now. As you might have noticed I am still there and attempting to complete the semester which will be over in about three weeks.I have well passed the date for withdrawing without academic penalty and I have been feeling better than I was a couple of months ago because if I wasn’t, I don’t think I would have got to this point. However, I am still having difficulties appyling myself to the work and finding motivation to complete something that I find so boring and a routine that makes me feel unhapppy. I have somehow completed all my assessments, got some very average marks but I have been getting by. I am not attempting to achieve good marks this terms and I will be extremely happy if I can receive passes. I just don’t have the correct state of mind currently to achieve better than this right now and I don’t want to place too much pressure on myself. I know this may be the wrong attitude to university but since it is one semester I don’t think it will have long term impacts. It is disapointing to know that I could achieve much better but I think that in life we have to do the best we can given the current situation. If this is all I can do right now then thats how it will have to be. In three weeks when the semester ends I hope I can deeply think about my life and sort out some of the underlying reasons for the way that I have been feeling this year.
