I hate and love learning

Unique POV 001I am under pressure at the moment to complete five tasks for the second assignment in my unit of study – Production, Editing and Design. I have gone past the point of ‘this is really interesting’ to now feeling ‘am I going to live through this process?’

I received my results this morning from the first assignment and I passed moderately well – a big relief. I didn’t say I did well – but I was happy enough with the outcome.

This is a very technical unit and it is pushing me beyond my limits, however, today I learned so much – that I never would have otherwise. Why does it have to be so painful in the process?

The main part of the assignment is due on 21 October. I hope to send it off this Friday to lessen the torture. The rest is due on 4 November. We are going away for a couple of days after that to celebrate/recover my sanity.

If you have any study tips or suggestions for surviving the pressure, I would love to hear them.

cheers

  1. Everyone studies differently. I took it easy in lower grades.I became serious when I reached college and university.I am not sure if I hated it or loved it, like you,I was nervous I couldn’t wait for it to be over.After all that time,I am back again studying,not for anything but acquire the type of knowledge I didn’t have.I must say I’m enjoying it now.I never thought I’d write this.The only tip I can give is to enjoy it and not think of it as a chore.
    I am sure you will do really well.Good luck.

    • Thanks for your thoughts on this Ranu. It is reassuring to know you have felt this way too. I am really doing the study as an interest however I find that studying online means I have to think things through on my own – it is good when I overcome a challenge 🙂

  2. In law school, I spent 15 hours a day immersed in the law . . . 6 days a week. I took one full day for myself to maintain my sanity. On that day, I did not think about torts, or briefs, or contracts, or constitutional law. I just soaked up “real life.”

    • I feel quite the wimp in comparison! Overall it was a good day and I am pleased I stuck with it and made some progress. I will, however, be pleased to soak up some more “real life” after 4 November 🙂

      • I didn’t mean to make you feel like a wimp . . . I don’t think I could keep up that pace now that I have added a few rings around my trunk. I was just a youngster at the time. 😀
