Linking up with My Home Truths for I Must Confess.
I’m Most Proud Of
Well, I’m most proud of me. Yep. I don’t like to do the whole “list what I have on my plate” thing much these days, because everyone has different things that impact on them in different ways. But mostly because I feel like it draws busyness competitions and I hate them.
I certainly don’t handle things perfectly, but I do manage. While there is some debate as to if I could be described as a perfectionist or not, I do usually get things done. When I don’t get things done, 99% of the time it’s something I shouldn’t have taken on in the first place, but I did anyway.
I guess at the moment I’m proud of me for getting through last week – and the four weeks prior to that. They were a hard slog. Survival isn’t really something I want to be proud of…if that makes sense. Obviously it’s good, but I’d rather be proud of something I voluntarily worked towards, not something I had to do.
So far this year, I’m probably most proud of getting a distinction in my semester one subject at uni. It was really hard, but really interesting. I still feel like I haven’t really grasped all of the content but I had missed so badly feeling challenged. I don’t feel challenged all that often!
How do you view being proud? Does it mean more than just an everyday thing for you?

I must have missed the news you had picked uni up again, congrats on a distinction!
Thanks! It was a last-minute discovery of a course and enrollment 🙂
It’s all about the small things for me,because I’m a chronic under achiever. Ahem. You certainly do seem to get all the things done. Congrats on the distinction xo
Maybe I should include more of the late-night “WHY AM I DOING THIS” whinges and the chocolate that gets eaten along the way 🙂
Congrats on your uni achievement. I keep thinking about doing some study but think I will wait until the kids are a little older.
I can’t imagine how parents fit in study!!
I’d be very proud of a distinction at uni too – especially considering everything else you have on your plate Vanessa x
You are so right about busyness competitions – what is that about? People are obsessed with proving how busy they are all the time. Who cares!!! I’d rather boast about the fact that I manage a nanna nap most days now I work from home. LOL
I need to do more boasting about how much DVD watching I manage to get done 🙂
