THE RESULTS ARE IN

So on Wednesday morning I got up at 5:00am so I could both get ready for work and also have time to check my HSC exam results. I did not sleep well at all and woke up so many times throughout the night because of how nervous I was waiting for them to be in. Anyway they were released at 5:30am on Wednesday.

The individual marks from the exams were personal bests and i could not have been happier. I received a 68 in English, 71 in both Legal Studies and Modern History, 74 in Maths and 80 in Community and Family Studies. I thought that with those marks I would get a pretty good ATAR on Thursday morning and I was extremely proud of myself. However I was very wrong.

ON Thursday ATARs were not released until am and by then I was already at work and did not have time to check it. I finished at 5pm and was stressing all day about what it would be but I guessed that it would be fairly good at least 65+. I was very wrong. I checked
my ATAR and it came out as a 56.90. That number broke my heart and continued to do so for three hours. I literally cried for three hours straight about my ATAR. That ATAR was not good enough to get me into university.

Due to the location in which I live I am eligible for bonus points. Thank god for bonus points. I called all three universities and my recalculated ATAR was between 69.90 and 75.30. That 75.30 ensured me a guaranteed spot in my first preference of a double degree in Business and Commerce. I am over the moon and can safely say that I could not have do it without those bonus points. I just hope that they didn't lie to me on the phone and I do in fact still have that guaranteed offer in January.

HSC RESULTS ARE RELEASED TOMORROW!

So tomorrow is the moment of truth, well half of it anyway. I get my results from my external exams that were completed about two months ago. I have so many mixed emotions about the entire thing to be completely honest. Like if I didn't do well in these exams that may mean the end of my dream of going to university. However, if i do well it might mean i get guaranteed entry into my preferred course at my preferred uni.

I will be back on Thursday night with how I feel about both my HSC results and also my ATAR.

MALE DOMINATED WORKPLACES. WHY?

I work in the construction industry as of a month ago. It is my first job and I really enjoy myself when I am there. But the workplace only has eight female employees with a total of 30+ male employees. Don't get me wrong it is a wonderful workplace and everyone that works there are truly lovely people but it still baffles me that a site like ours and a society like we have there is such a difference in numbers between the sexes.

LONG TIME NO SEE!

So, I not checked my blog in about a month to be honest as I have been busy adapting to the real world of full time work and balancing family, a boyfriend and being an adult now. But after finally finding the time to have a little look at things I have discovered that there are a lot more people that are interested in my life than I ever thought possible and i have to say thankyou so much to each and every one of you guys that have contributed to the rapid growth of my blog. I am overwhelmed by the views I have had and never imagined that this blog would ever become so important and meaningful to me.

I will catch you all up on my new found adulthood, full time work and many more things that have happened in the past month but I need you all to bear with me while I get back into the swing of things.

And again, thankyou all so much for being so precious!
