What an emotional day. It was the end of an era, the end of everything, The Office finale… Oh how I cried. But another post on that later. I just checked my psychology essay results, and my internet has been running slow for the past few days, possibly because of all the windows and tabs I have open for online shopping. Anyway, blackboard is always super slow on the turn it in thing, and whilst waiting for it to load, my stomach was actually churning. I’m not sure that it’s ever churned before… Unless churning is also what you call what your stomach does when you’re really hungry.
In my tutorial on Wednesday my tutor was pretty…I’m pretty sure she hinted that we didn’t do very well, and that means, people failed. I was sure I’d fail. But then there’s also that tiny tiny part of me that hopes that maybe I am so naturally talented in some area and don’t even know it that I pass… Well that feeling wasn’t that prominent this time. And to kill the suspense, I failed. Horribly. Well I didn’t fail horribly, but I did fail. My raw mark was a high pass, it makes me wish that I’d handed it in a week earlier and I would’ve at least passed the essay…but now I’ve failed. I guess I can take this into account as, I’m not a complete failure, well my work isn’t. But meh.
I think overall I was pretty prepared to see a whole lot of comments. And I did. To be honest I read the first three and couldn’t be bothered anymore. It’s not even that they were making me feel sad, or bad about myself. I just assume all the comments will be about similar mistakes, like I’ve stated facts that are actually wrong… Not that I’m expecting any positive comments, but I doubt I’ll have any of those anyway. An email went out a few days before saying that the tutors will mark hard? Actually I don’t think it said hard, but they wouldn’t hold back from pointing out flaws, in order to improve. And also that the essay isn’t a mark of your potential, or you as a person. The fact that the coordinator or whoever stated that specifically was comforting to me and made me feel better. But all in all, I think after writing all this, I feel sad. I still haven’t started any of my two essays, and in an attempt to start later, I decided to check my results after remembering that they were released at noon.
I don’t even know. It makes me so sad that I have to do assignments. Well essays. I don’t even know… I went to the bathroom and thought… Arts is all academic, all about academic essays. I was thinking of picking up film studies, but then I also realised that that too was about analysis and academic writing. All the subjects are. Then I thought about journalism, at UTS or at Usyd, and realised even though it’s not particularly academic, the writing is still supposed to be sophisticated…I don’t really know. Then I thought about fashion, writing is important, but it’s not the major factor. Should I be doing that? I don’t know. I imagined myself transferring to UTS…not sure how I feel about that. The only thing I really love about Usyd is the campus, how it’s massive (even though walking is a con) it reminds me of going to uni in America or something. UTS is literally one ugly and tall building, with ‘campuses’ separated by commercial blocks… I love Usyd. Some people say to me, they don’t actually love Usyd, but then others say they love it. I was sitting in a lecture thinking, I wish all I had to do was listen and take notes, not have to write essays, not have to do exams. My exams are in less than three weeks and I haven’t even handed in my last two assessments. Life.
Not to mention tomorrow I have my second day of work. I didn’t actually tell you how my first day was. It was last Sunday and I worked five hours… I work at my old tutoring place. I don’t really know what I expected, I kind of thought I’d be teaching primary school students. But tomorrow I have to assist a year twelve class, I don’t even know what to do. To be honest, I mean I’ve always known and thought this, but I’m not that good at english… Not good enough to teach other students. And these students are only a year younger than me, in the position I was in not only a few months ago, and now I’m (sort of) entrusted with their future. I’m supposed to mark essays and stuff. I remember having tutors help me with mine, they gave me examples, what to put in my essay, things I need to expand on and points. My tutor even gave me and my friend essays to mark one time, I literally had no suggestions and have no idea. It’s because I’m not at all confident or opinionated about these things, I have no idea what the author is trying to say, or what they are saying. So how can I possibly help others… Not to mention again that the class splits into two, one on Hamlet and one on Yeats. I don’t even know what the fuck Yeats is. I think I have to research or read up on it before tomorrow. And read up on techniques that I’ve forgotten… One of the girls who I’m assisting said that I have to get used to teaching stuff I don’t know at this tutoring place. This makes me sad. I suck seriously. I’m considering resigning because I literally don’t think I have what it takes to teach or even assist or even mark HSC essays… I don’t know how I’m going to survive the two hours tomorrow, bullshitting my way through, pretending to be smart.
I was watching BeautyCrush on youtube again today, of her behind the scenes of fashion shoots (link here). It made me realise that I’ve got to learn to get used to this feeling because all my life it will be like this. Sammi was helping with styling at the shoot with people I assume she’s never met. Caught a plane alone to Ibiza to meet with people she’s never met. Had to have lunch and make small talk with them. Feeling like a newbie, which is what I feel like at work, and sometimes at uni. I say sometimes at uni because I don’t feel like that all the time, but I am still a fresher and literally think it in my mind. Yeah I don’t really know where I was going with this or if I’ve already made my point but whatever…
Oh watching the video also made me want to be a model (lol). It just looks so fun! Not that I’d ever be one. It reminds me of being an actor or something because you have to audition all the time and you’ll get rejected and things like that…
Sigh, I’ve also run out the Tim Tams my mum bought… So no more delicious Tim Tams with tea… I don’t know if I told you but I finally found Yorkshire tea! It was in Coles I think. I was getting more tea after I’d run out of English Breakfast and saw it just sitting there! Finally when I wasn’t looking for it, it appears!! And then I wikipedia-ed it in store to see if it was the actual one, and it was! So yorkshire tea is the brand, and it makes black tea, so there is no other Yorkshire tea. That’s just what I’ve gathered… Here’s the attractive picture I took.
I actually think this picture is attractive, not sarcasm. Well actually this is far too big, I can really see it all in it’s not so glorious form. I think shopping would make me feel a lot better… But there’s no time for that. I really can’t fucking be bothered. I can’t go now since all the stores will close/have closed. I can’t go tomorrow since there’s not enough time before work. I have to start my assignment tonight and also read up on Hamlet, Yeats and techniques. That’s for tonight and tomorrow morning. Then I have to work until two, and then probably walk around my local stores and see nothing worthy compared to the top shop pants I want. Maybe I should just trek it out there tomorrow on a fucking Sunday to buy them if the weather is good… Shops close early on Sunday as well… I don’t know. It’s really pissing me off that I can’t make the picture smaller. It’s either me or wordpress, but either way it’s pissing me off. Minus one to wordpress, fuck. I woke up at like twelve today and realised it was sunny outside, opposed to the rainy weather report. Annoyed…!!!! I should’ve gone to the library but I thought it’d be raining and I don’t like going outside when the weather is that miserable. Lugging around an umbrella is the worst. I really need to buy a new umbrella, some sort of compact one, but not enough money to spare for that. My mum is so annoying, I don’t ask her for money for things I want, like clothes and stuff, nor do I go shopping with her because every time I regret it. Anyway, so one time she was like, just tell me what you want and I’ll give you money, and you concentrate on studying. I think this was in reference to me not having a job before and not having any money because literally no one would hire unexperienced me. I really wanted to work in Sportsgirl or General Pants or even Glue. I think one person kept saying to me, General Pants is so exclusive, and I was thinking, I fucking know, but there’s no harm in still applying…!! Yeah well my mum hasn’t really done anything to support what she’s said. Plus she only says things like that when other people are around. Meh.
