Hello again people. So I’m finally here in Huddersfield, have been here for almost three weeks, actually, but I never actually got around to actually updating this blog [apologies, again and again and again for it].
This week is my first official week of classes and I can legit say that I am a Master’s student at the University of Huddersfield right now. Though I can’t really say it’s going great (it has only been a couple of days and I feel like I’m not supposed to be here lol inferiority complex much please send help)
I’ve been hinting about my new phase for quite some time, so I guess now’s a pretty good time to officially write about it on the blog, even though some of you would’ve already know about it from my other social medias (yeah, my blog is the last to be updated, as always)
In a little over 24 hours from now, I’d be on a plane, where I’d be heading to the University of Huddersfield, United Kingdom, to start my MA in Education (Youth & Community).
After more than two years of planning for graduate school and all, it’s finally happening. Granted, it was not what I planned for originally, as my first option was to stay in the US after my graduation in May 2017 and pursue my 2-years Master’s degree in Student Affairs. But, after thinking things through and taking into consideration a lot of other factors, this is perhaps the best option for me at this point of time, and I’m honestly excited for it.
I’ve never really wrote about this on the blog yet, but I promised myself, whether I succeeded or not, I’ll write a post about it anyway, so I guess this is it.
Last year in September/October, I decided to try out and apply for the Chevening Award 2018/19. It was a spur of the moment decision, and it was a shot to the stars, but heck, I decided to go for it and try my luck.
In this huge, huge world, there are an abundant of opportunities for us to grab. There are millions of doors to be opened and endless amount of paths to walk on. And while there may be tons of things that appeal to you, or that there are multiple things that caught your attention, sometimes you have to know when to turn something down and choose what’s best for you.
I did something today that I was hoping dearly I didn’t have to do, but I knew that I have to make that decision sooner or later, and there was no point in delaying it. It has been in my mind for the past year and a half, and was one of the things that kept me going and gave me hope, but for now, I have to let it go. I couldn’t hold on to it much longer, because I know that I should be moving on and doing things that may be better for me, in so many different ways.
