Struggling to let go

As I’ve been going a hundred miles an hour for the last couple of months, it feels weird to give up my responsibilities in order to focus on my degree and I can certainly feel myself struggling to let go. I’ve pretty much handed over my position as Editor-in-chief of The Tab Warwick and it feels really weird not being in charge.


Being an editor has turned me into a super organised control freak and strangely enough, I enjoyed the constant pressure of being on top of everything. Now that’s gone, it feels like there’s something missing from my life and I feel extremely unproductive.

I’ve had the best year managing a team of extremely talented people and I could not be more confident in the fact that they will go on to do great things in the coming year. Although, I’ve handed over the position, I’m still very much looking to write for The Tab and spend more time writing for other publications.

There are only a few months left until my university journey comes to an end and the pressure is at an all time high. I’ve got into City for the Interactive Journalism course, although I still need to get a 2:1 to actually go. So, in the next few weeks I will need to work on my dissertation and focus on revising for my exams to keep above the 60 mark.

I’m currently in Kazakhstan (the only time I find myself writing is when I’m at home), so I am catching up on all the lost sleep from second term, trying to reflect on the past few months and mentally prepare myself for the month to come. It seems weird to think that it’s all coming to an end, so I just need to get it together and make the most my time as an Undergraduate.
