It’s been a tentative Uni start this week.
Doubts and worries have been getting the best of not only myself, but my colleagues as well.
That said, when I sit down and think about it, we’ve only just started. Very few of us have done anything academic in years. Referencing is a very new concept to everyone and turns everything we thought we knew about writing and researching on it’s head.
This first assignment is designed to get us into the right frame of mind to tackle University standard writing. It’s designed for us to make mistakes and learn from it.
BUT….I have a plan!!
Not a cunning one, an actual one!!
I’ve actually decided on the theme of my essay.
I have worked out what information needs to go into my essay to get to my conclusion.
I am now researching documents to pull the tidbits of information I need to backup what I want to say.
Then I need to actually write the essay being concise and making sure I don’t go overboard so that my conclusion stays within the 1500 word parameter.
You know what?
I’m going to stop worrying about it all.
I’m going to take it as it comes.
I’m going to keep on top of things.
I am going to succeed.
