Personal Blog - Wilz prepares for absolute mayhem

"Coming to the end of semester holidays, we are entering a full on semester with 2 subjects and nearing graduation from our degree"

Aioli everyone,

We hope you have all been well,

We have 3 subjects left in our degree and this coming semester we are going to be tackling 2 of the 3 in a full on semester load, we are preparing for absolute mayhem, but is going to pure magic at end of semester,

We think we have expressed this before in one of our previous blog entries but it has been a while since we have taken on a full study load for a semester but we are going to give it our best shot, preparing for absolute mayhem but accomplishing this degree has been such a long journey but we are nearing the end and we couldn't be more proud of what we have accomplished and just how far we have come,

If you have been following this blog for a while now, most of you would know our journey with this degree has been quite the trip, it has taken longer than the usual degree study time but for those who don't know, part way through the degree we struggled quite a bit being diagnosed with anxiety, struggling with medications and relapsing but looking back look at us now, we are on top of the anxiety, we have learned to deal and we are making such big strides with our writing, our skills and building so many new beautiful friendships,

"We have to credit our university with a lot of assistance and help during our diagnosis, the University of South Australia were nothing but absolutely accommodating and so caring, to all the staff, teachers, tutors even to admin, you guys are the best, we don't think we could have gotten this far without your support"

We sincerely can't thank our university enough, through diagnosis, perils with medications and relapsing, they were nothing short of accommodating, kind and caring, we never knew such assistance was on offer, and without their help we probably would have stopped our degree and studying but they were their for us when many weren't, the teaching staff through out our whole degree so far have been nothing short of amazing but during that tough time they were always there, only a message/call away offering as much assistance as they could, we honestly can't thank them enough, a big thank you to the University of South Australia,

But going into the last of our last few semesters with the university and coming towards the close of our degree, we are a mixtures of nerves, doubts and worries but we can only give our best, we will try with all that we have and even though this semester is going to be full on with a full semester load, with careful planning and also remembering to take care of ourselves we will get through the semester one step at a time, our mantra for this semester is we can and we will, we are going to try and give ourself the best shot we can to achieve, we can do this,

"Mayhem maybe incoming but with a good offence and preparation, we are ready to take on whatever they can throw at us, we have got this"

We don't know if we shared this on the blog previously but in a session with student advisor in the past but also with our psychologist too, they both advised us to be kind to ourselves, to make sure we allow time for our mind and body to relax and unwind, that even though study is important, without our general and mental health in check, you can't achieve anything, we often share in this blog that time management isn't one of our strong suits but we have been learning along the way it is a skill that really helps, allocating out time for study and focus, but also allocating time to just be and to do what we enjoy, it is so very important, it is one of the best defenses and offence you can have to be prepared for whatever they throw your way,

"Full semester or big event/opportunity coming your way, along with being as prepared as much as you can, a great support is letting family and friends be there for you, out of everyone they know you the best and can pep you up but along with them we want to be able to support you too, we are all in this together, we can achieve the best"

Rain, shine or kingdom come, along with your loved ones we want to be able to support you too, your dreams and aspirations are important to us and we want to be there to see you achieve, all of us can achieve our dreams and seeing you guys smile and happy means the world to us, we hope you all know that you always have our love and support along the way, just like you support the blog for us, we want to be there for you, and if you ever need a person to talk to we can always be found on our social media, just search up walkwithwilz, and we will always be there to walk along side you,

That is Wilz for now, take care, travel safely and let's keep walking on this journey called life, peace out
