On my blog today, you’ll read something other than my fashion, beauty, events and my usual ramblings. When I’m not on holiday, my blog takes a back seat. You know when you’re at university you have a major workload, where you have to prioritise and that brings me to today’s post. I was quite excited when my lecturer(Yes, my lil old blog gets lots of support at campus) asked me to do a post on “a student’s perspective on the awards ceremony”, and I was more than happy to give my two cents worth.
When I started at Cape Peninsula University of Technology earlier this year, I had major goals set out but achieving those goals was another story. First semester came around and I didn’t do too badly but there was definitely room for improvement. The subject I liked the most I actually did poorly in and there’s nothing like a bad mark to demotivate me.
When second semester came, I knew that I had to pull my socks up and improve my marks because I knew that I didn’t want to fail one subject and waste a whole year doing it over. I remember sitting in the lecture wall, impressed by the student’s achievements and it really helped me see the bigger picture. It made me realise that I really can achieve good marks if I put effort into my studies.Good marks is what I strive for! To me the awards ceremony was a big
little boost of motivation and a sign for me to up my game so that I can be up there too when its my turn. It would be nice to prove to my lazy brain that I CAN DO IT. Let’s face it, nothing can hold you back besides yourself.This may or may not seem like some shameless promoting, but if you want to give the whole “kick-starting your career” thing a go, applications for the new year (2014) is currently underway. CPUT have more than 5 campuses scattered over Cape Town, with more than 50 courses offered. You will definitely find something that you want to do.
P.s… Happy Birthday to Madiba. Thank You for bringing love, light and freedom into the lives of all South Africans.
