Exam Time

It's almost exam time, and I'm flipping out!!!

I haven't done much study in my life before this, well hardly any, and all the time I studied it was kinda unhelpful, I never remembered it afterwards and didn't help my nerves when it came to test time.

I learn a lot through repetition, and recall for me builds confidence to know I've got it down pat, oh and teaching some one else, except S can get a bit tired of me talking, he's even started doing a dad and saying his listening but actually hasn't heard a word I've just said. Very annoying.

This is a short post because I should actually be hanging out the washing, cleaning the lounge room, cleaning the kitchen, making dinner (trying a meat free dinner tonight, veggie lasagne with left of lasagne sheets I have, may post about whether its an epic fail or good, never cooked with eggplant before!) oh and studying for the massive exam I have coming up!!!

I would like to ask for any study tips you have used that helped you prepare for tests. Any little tips that you used in high school or to get you through university!

I would really appreciate it if you had any tips!!!

Anyway, I hope you are having a great week!

New Perspective

So S and I have been married for almost 6 months now. It has gone super fast!!!

I've learnt that I hate cooking and cleaning up, slow cookers were made just for people like me. I've become very conscious of the cleanliness of the house, but really, only when people come over do I do an actual clean. Oh and I hate doing washing, hanging it out, bringing it in, and this is usually as far as I get, S comes home and doesn't understand why I can't do the last part and fold it and put it away. So I've started folding, but I haven't put any of it away, which means there is little piles of folded clothes around the house :)

It's safe to say I am not the steadfast housewife, and don't think it's going to change any time soon.

One things that been the most drastic change since moving out of home and being married isn't the house cleaning, or cooking, both of which I did back at home anyway, but it's getting up early!!!

Nine would be early for me, and ten was my regular get up time. 

Now, the regular time I get up is 730. 630 if I have an eight o'clock class, but more often then not 730, latest is eight.

I know, you say, how crazy, you say, she gets up at 730, doesn't have kids, doesn't need to work (the paid kind of work) but she still gets up at 730. Don't worry, I say that to myself as well.

The reason for this change is that S leaves for work about 7:15, and he sets his alarm for six, he nice and lets me sleep till about seven then he must think that that's a good time to get up, so he comes in and asks if I'm going to make his lunch, and begs me to get out of bed.

I tell him to turn the heater on and all is good! (Just fyi, I don't make his lunch, and wont be until I have to make the kids lunch for school, another 15 years away).

That is the most drastic change for me, some of you may be early morning people and think its normal to get out of bed at 630 every morning, and all the mothers are probably thinking 730! Thats a sleep in. But if you know me in real life, this is getting up early.

As a teenagers I never even knew what saturday morning was, I never saw it!

Well thats it for today, just a little change but a big change in my life. May think of some other things to share about how married life has changed me and some more uni updates, which is going really well. I'm so happy with my results, bar one essay, but like my teacher said, it's a learning curve and I can only get better from here on out!!!

I started out linking with blog everyday in may (link in my side bar) which has some prompts, this one is to share a few links to some olds posts, to I'm going to link my most viewed post and my favourite post, hope you enjoy.

Oh and how can I forget the fantastic Jess over at Essentially Jess for I Blog On Tuesdays!

Don't Major On The Minors - May 8

My piece of advice for others would be this.

Don't major on the minors.

This is the piece of advice I got a few times before our wedding! 

I've been applying it to basically all areas of my life right now. It really does help, it allows me to stop, take a breath, and really evaluate the reasons why I'm angry, annoyed, frustrated, worried, scared, you get the idea.

It's really given me perspective, I've been stressing so much lately over uni work, but I always remember what my mum told me in high school, "do as well as you can and that's all you can do".

I think sometimes we let all the crap in our lives rush in and take over and we get lost in all the unimportant stuff!!!

So my advice, remember what's important to you, remember that there is a tomorrow, and remember that it's never as bad as it seems, because thats life!

What Scares You? May 7

The things I'm most afraid of?

Speaking in front of people.

Failing a test, or exam, or essay, well uni basically!

Getting needles, and blood taken.

Automatic BP machines. My blood pressure is always so high on a machine rather then manually taken!

Cockroach's, spiders, any bugs in general!

But the things I'm most afraid of?

Is not living my life the way God wanted me to! 

And that if don't give Jesus all the credit!

What scares you??
