This is my Year 10 school photo, I commenced my University studies about 2 months after this photo was taken.
My ‘different’ education setup!
So I’m 17 and have completed 17 units of my Bachelor’s Degree, how does that work? In year 10 I had the opportunity to do a year 12 I.T. subject, while doing this as part of my regular schooling. I decided to take up the challenge of also doing some introductory Computer Science subjects as well. After completing those subjects with rather successful grades, I continued further through that summer. After that summer we decide there wasn’t too much point in me doing VCE (My year 11 and 12 studies), because the ATAR mark you get at the end is for the sole purpose of getting you into a university course. My parents and I decided it wasn’t necessary for me to continue with, ‘normal’ school, considering I was already at Uni.
We all know the old Apple campane, ‘Think Different‘ right? Well this was a real, ‘Think Different’ decision moment! One interesting thing we decided I should do is stick around through year 11 and just do English. The reason we thought this would be good is that I’ve never really been that good at English and I know how incredibly valuable those skills are to my future, especially with where I want to go.
Where I’m at
As of now writing this Blog post, I’m about to commence my 9 th consecutive back-to-back overlapping study period, having just completed last SP’s exam the other day. Whether or not it was a wise decision or not, I chose to complete all my major first, doing all the subjects which involved topics I was already familiar with. Now having completed all of those I’m at a point in my Uni studies where the material I’m learning is all fresh information that I haven’t ever looked at before. Which is both challenging and exciting, I’m finding out all sorts of exciting information about subject matters that are somewhat related to the Business Goals and Aspirations I hold.
Where I hope to go
I plan on taking these remaining 7 units quite slowly, while utilizing more time for my Business activities. I value the effort I put into my business activities, because I find this is where I learn the most, learning how to cater to customer needs and desires. Fulfilling orders and marketing product offerings, are all valuable experiences that are building and equipping me for my future plans. I am trying to grow my business through both making my own Apps and Websites, like Vehicle Log Book Pro, and also through doing contract work. I hope to see these two lines of business grow to make quite an exciting and Passionate brand in the future!
