I see my friend on facebook and realise i have ruined my life…. Miss screwed my life”

Hot Potatoe: Ruined your life? Isn’t that a bit too harsh? Anything can be mended. So instead of wallowing in self-pity, start fixing things!

Now you know what you want, which is more than most people can say – that’s a real advantage you have! Many people keep on looking for “the right thing” in life for a long time, some forever, never finding it. But you know now. You have paid a steep price for it, but at least you know now. Start from there.

Start doing things, I mean practical things. Stop thinking about all the things that you did wrong, since that really won’t help you one bit. Been there, done that, got the lousy t-shirt to prove it.

Now start fixing things: find out what you have missed (and no, I don’t mean emotional stuff that make you feel worse), but practical issues. An exam you have to take, a paper you might need to write? Contact your mentor, or if you don’t have one, find one. Talk to the professors/teachers and find out what you have to do to catch up.

Who cares if you missed out one year, who cares if you’re one year behind, do the things now! And that means DO them now. When you are told what is expected of you, do the things seriously. In the end you will have a degree, that’s what your goal should be. Who cares at which pace you got there?
