Making the most of your university experience.
I hope you’re all well! It’s been a busy week this week as I have been researching into the individual 20 minute performance I have to perform in less than 2 weeks, so no pressure!
I also attended the Gym Gym Glam election meetingthis week which is basically a Welsh Language society where anyone who can speak welsh or is learning welsh can join together to do lots of fun things like, going out on pub crawls, quiz nights, going on 6 nation tours, and even being part of a welsh language TV Programme ‘Jonathan’. It’s all good fun and you get to meet loads of new people. The elections were to select the new society team such as a chairman etc. As I’m in my third year I didn’t want a big role but I still wanted to be very much part of organising the running of the society so I was selected as Events Officer. I’m looking forward to this role as I have a few ideas of events for the society and should be fun to organise. If any of you are welsh speakers and are thinking of coming to Glamorgan University next year don’t hesitate to join us! If you’d like to get a feel of the society just join us on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/groups/105910356188856/.
Also this week I’ve suddenly realised that I am soon to turn 21 :/ to me this age just means maturity and all things boring! So, when I saw an ad on the University’s website about a group of students needed to climb mount Kilimanajro for charity I thought ‘why not!’. My friend and I went to the meeting and out of a total act of madness and spontaneity we’ve registered and will be climbing Sept 2013! It hasn’t quite sunk in yet and probably won’t until I am a heap of sweat, pain and an utter mess climbing the mountain! We both have to raise £2,650 each to charity before climbing the mountain so we are now trying to organise current events to raise as much as we can. My fundraising page will be up and running by next week so I’ll post the link on to next week’s blog if you would like to sponsor me. Even if it’s 50p, I’d really appreciate it!
So anyway, what I’m trying to say is that it’s good to set challenges for yourself that scare you slightly, because it gives you something to work towards, doesn’t matter what the challenge may be. From academic by trying to get the grades for your chosen university to personal challenges like trying to raise money for charity. Work hard and have the right attitude and you can achieve anything!
Be adventurous! Sian x
