I know that people see me as obsessed about my studies and right at the moment I don't really care. This degree is important and I need to do really well if I want to do an honours year, especially if it is somewhere besides Southern Cross. So I need to pull my socks up and really start doing well. Last semester was more like what I need but I need to try and get all my grades above a Credit. Distinctions and High Distinctions, especially now that I am totally in my units for my majors, is what I need.
I know some people are going to be disappointed in me. They will see this as putting more unnecessary pressure on myself. But I don't believe it is unecessary. Not if I am to do my best. There are no excuses now. I am out and safe. Money is relatively stable, if a little tight most of the time. And I am at a point where I have to start saying that what happened is not my life. It does not define who I am. It is time to not just let it go but to push it away, kicking and screaming if necessary.
I am going to do this. I have to.

Please note that some of the content here may be triggering.
What I write here is just me being honest with myself. Mostly just venting about things, realisations, and my path through healing.
There will be talk of CSA, SA, R, SI and ED here.
