So I have been pretty much struggling throughout the entire 2nd year of University now. I have failed several projects and didn't hand in an essay, meaning I'll have to re-do the 2nd year. The thing is it's not that I don't enjoy what I am studying (Model Making and SFX), I have just been having major issues with anxiety and low self-esteem. Luckily my tutor is really supportive and seems to understand what I am going through. One of the options that I have been presented is to take some time away from University and come back and carry on when I feel ready. I am seriously considering going ahead with that. It would mean I would have to pack all my stuff and move back to my parents and find a job, but after all of the anxiety and stress I have been through, it seems like the preferable option. The way I see it, it's not the end of the world, I am not giving up, I'm just taking a bit of a break to re-gain my sanity. Part of me is actually quite excited because it'll free up some time to work on my own projects and self improvement.
