Keep Calm…

Been away. Back now, and just want to send a message to everyone up to their necks in study notes…

Much as I do think those posters from England have been done to death (Keep Calm and Carry On; Keep Calm Edward’s Still Single), I would like to just say to all of the students presently studying hard for their Australian school or university final exams, please remember that tomorrow is another day. For now, the best you can do is focus on your study plan for today and let tomorrow take care of itself. You can consider your grades when they come, but to be preoccupied with them now is a distraction. There are alternative pathways, several in fact, for anything you might be dreaming of.

Stay optimistic, persevere, and you’ll get there!

All the best :)
