Do what makes you happy
This weekend has been crazy. As you may know, I am the coach of Warwick Bhangra Society, and this weekend has been full of practices and performances! On Saturday night our team, alongside Warwick Indian Music Ensemble, Warwick Bollywood Team and two external Indian Classical Dancers all performed together for one special night to raise money for the charity Save the Children. The experience was incredible, I hosted this night last year and I loved it, but this year was extra special because more people were involved and I learnt new things that helped me to ensure that we had a smoother running event. All together we raised over £1500! How amazing! Tickets were £15 and that included a meal and the chance to see these special performances. I have now made friends for life. One thing I know I need to improve on is working under intense pressure and thinking on the spot, I tend to panic and freeze and my mind goes blank. I need to maintain my cool and focus on finding a suitable solution. This is a habit for people who are hypersensitive(i.e me!) because they tend to care too much and think of all the possible factors they need to consider instead of prioritising what needs to be done.
Final weeks of term have arrived and I am not stressed! How crazy, I am enjoying the challenge of juggling my assignments and my hobbies and the various events I am trying to be involved in that will help me widen my knowledge about the world around me. I am just doing what makes me happy. Nothing wrong with that. My to-do list gets longer and longer by the day, now I even have to put ‘reply to texts’ in there because I end up reading peoples messages and not replying to them! So crazy but I do get so busy or I have to use my phone to contact someone immediately so others will see that I am online on WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger and think that I am ignoring them! Happens all the time, but not to worry, true friends will understand your pressures.
I have loved my time here at Warwick and honestly, it makes me so sad that I have to leave because I won’t see my friends for a very long time! It’s going to be so strange not seeing everyone on a daily basis or texting them to meet up for a coffee/lunch date. But that is life, unfortunately, people come and go and friendships will pause and then will come back. In this day and age, it’s easier to keep in contact with your friends, but nothing beats physically being with them, that’s when the emotions will kick in and the real impact starts to affect their daily life. Friendships are very precious to me, and it’s hard for me to think that I will have to get used to not seeing these guys anymore, even just thinking that I will see them again after the holidays or something. I will have to ensure I continue to make an effort with my lovely friends.
