Update on KatyPie

Thank you for all your supportive comments on my last post!

I realise that I haven’t written in a while but I haven’t really felt like writing lately. But I have been around on Twitter and  The Recovery Boat (check it out!).

A lot has happened since my last post.

In June, I had exams and I didn’t do as well as planned. You see, the plan was that I would do Masters next year and in order for me to get into masters, I have to get a B+ average. So of course, the first mark that I get back is a B-. I burst into tears in my supervisors office, forgetting the fact that I had had a panic attack before this exam and was extremely anxious during that I just wanted to get the hell out of there. Not the best conditions to be doing an exam under anyway.

Then my other marks came back and I got an A and a B+, which I was extremely happy about. A lot of the concepts in meteorology are really difficult to grasp so the fact that I managed my B+ average made me extremely happy, especially considering everything that I’ve been through this year so far!

I’ve quit work in order to give me more time to work on my research project. It means less money but I’m managing. Thankfully, my Dad spoils me so I don’t really need money anyway. I hate shopping for clothes (*gasp*) so all I really need money for is the bus and Burger Fuel, which I can get through StudyLink as part of my loan.

Mum seems to be back to “normal”. She came to stay on the weekend of her 50th birthday and she seems as though she has things sorted out. She’s becoming independent, confident and she now believes that the break up was the best thing that could have happened to her! Is this my mum? She never contacts me to cry anymore, which is a relief but I do miss the contact. My counsellor told me that she is still figuring out who she is so while she is finding herself, I shouldn’t expect too much from her. That’s fair enough. 

Oh, and I got my period! Yay, right? It was such a relief to say the least. My boobs are much bigger now (not boasting or anything but bye-bye A-cup!!!) hehe. 

So overall, I’m quite content at the moment. Uni is hard but that is to be expected when you’re a post-grad. Just living each day as it comes.


Just ’cause.
