The Week When I Passed All Uni Exams
Sandra Monday, June 30, 2014
First off, I would just like to thank every single person who left a comment under my last 'The Week When...' post. I was positively overwhelmed by the response and I just couldn't believe the amount of support I got from people who haven't even met me yet. You are one lovely bunch!
Now, let's move on to the short summary of the past two weeks. The week before last was pretty boring. I was spending my days behind textbooks and taking care of my sick dog, while my sister was partying her booty off and my parents were away in Rome. Fun times! But all the stress is now forgotten, because I passed my last two university exams! Even the one that has been eating my nerves for the past two years. You know, the one that I've talked about here. And guess what? I even got the best grade possible! I was over the moon! Now I only have the final bachelor's exam to pass in September, which we have to take instead of doing the Bachelor's thesis for some reason. Everyone is a bit confused when I mention this exam to them, because it's not the most usual thing. I feel like we're the only department that has it? :D
Fast forward to this week, there's only one event I can think of - spending Saturday at the seaside, trying to promote my online store. I suffer from a pretty severe social anxiety, and having to go up to people I don't know and talk to them is my worst nightmare. As I assumed, the fear got the best of me, and I managed to give out only four flyers over the span of seven hours. Four. Thank god my sister and my relatives, who were there doing a promotion for their own online store helped me out. I was so disappointed with myself! I felt like the biggest loser ever, and the fact that I was being pressured and made fun of the whole way through did not help the situation one bit. I wish some people would understand how having social anxiety really feels like. It's not that I don't want to do certain things or feel a bit shy about doing it, I'm literally freaked out to the point I would rather die. It's also not something I can just 'grow out of' by being continously exposed to situations I'm freaked out about, as my family seem to think. It's a bit more complicated and well, complex. I don't want to go into details now, because I'm not sure you would want to hear about my experience with social anxiety, but in case you do, I can film a video and explain all about it. Just let me know in the comment section if you would like to see it. And feel free to leave me questions if there's something particular you want me to answer.
