Lately life has felt like little challenges, hurdles to overcome only for it to be a long distance race instead of the 110m you expected it to be.
There have been entertaining victories such as our team winning all of our games of rounders. Or playing my first league game of korfball.
To unexpected victories such as achieving 75% on my mapping exercise in Ireland. Or, getting to the interview stage of a part time job I wanted.
So far successfully cycling into and back from uni each day, including today against the wrath of hurricane Gonzalo. I never expected my journey in would have been on two wheels this time last year.
As well as making lots of new friends and really diving into the student experience with both feet.
I guess in the grand scheme of things, the biggest victory is that you are able to wake up the next day and have a new chance at life.
