So its been a long time since I last post on this, but I want to get something out and this seems the great place to do it. Although I wanted to add first my last few posts made me sad when I have just read them. I was thinking my last couple of years have been hard but at least I have been happy but now maybe I wasn't? Now I know I am... well most of the time, Bennet is just the sweetest. But I am missing my parents and family a lot and I do question if it was the right choice moving up to Auckland. Its scary to think I don't know how long my degree will be now and how much debt  I will be in by the end. I can't back up now.

Anyway what I was originally here to say.

I had an exam yesterday, for my hardest subject Fundamentals of Networking. I was very stressed, I didn't think I had done enough study and thought I was under prepared but I grinned and bared the ride to AUT. When I finished the exam I came out with a  huge sigh of relief. It wasn't that bad... could even go as far to say I found it easy. Although I am not expecting an A in this subject... probably more of a B-/C+.  And since I have already done three of my exams so far and found the other two just as easy I became to question, why didn't I do well in my first year at university? 

I know the main reason is I was way under prepared for what university was going to throw at me. Why was I under prepared? I believe it was a combination of NCEA and the High School I went to, even though Karamu High wasn't a terrible school, they just didn't push everyone to do the best that they could. NCEA on the other hand is a terrible schooling system. It baby's students, not push them to do the best they can. I didn't know failure until 2008 when I got D E E for the three subjects I took. Even now looking at those marks make me well up inside, and the second trimester wasn't much better B- E E. It is so hard for me to admit my failing of my first year, and even the fact that cross crediting didn't go as planned I feel my two years at EIT was wasted as well, although I know I learn valuable skills and maybe they are the reason why I am doing well now.

Our country, New Zealand, has become so PC. "Putting that much stress on teenagers who life is so difficult already will harm them." That is bullshit. I believe if I had failed at some point at high school, actually failed not the whole "Not Achieved" business I would of been more prepared for failing, if I still had of, in my first year at Victoria. Also NCEA system does not parallel  to how universities in general work. You don't even know weather you passed a subject in NCEA, you can assume, but its no like I can say in year 13 I got an overall of an Achieved in English, Merit in History etc. Also seeing assignments/exams don't have a % towards an end grade, I didn't really understand that system in my first year.

I could go into what I wish I had done differently. But even though 2008 was a big FAIL on my behalf. I did learn a lot that year. Life skills and how to look after one self. And when I think about the E's of that year and start to get that twisted stomach I just think about how much I loved and still love Wellington and I was so glad I got an opportunity to live there.

This was really meant to be a positive entry... guess when thoughts run out onto the finger tips sometimes its just a little difficult to control.

I should go.  :)
