Rediscovering My Study Groove: Back on Track After a 2-Month Hiatus

Coursework 1.2, Creative Arts 1.2 Creative Arts Skills, Creative Arts BA (Hons), Project 2: Developing Creative Skills

Life has an uncanny way of throwing curveballs, often causing us to reshuffle priorities and adjust. Over the past two months, I was in a whirlwind of work and travel commitments that left me little time for my studies. While this break was not intentional, it has given me a renewed sense of motivation and determination to get back on track. In this post, I’ll share how I plan to regain my focus and make the most of my time to achieve my study goals, starting with completing Unit 2 and the Painting Skills Hub section.

The Reality Check

Taking a step back and assessing my current situation, I realise I still have time to get back on track and accomplish my study objectives. It’s essential to acknowledge that setbacks are a natural part of life, and how we respond to them truly matters. Rather than dwelling on the time lost, I am committed to making a fresh start and rediscovering the joy of learning.

Planning My Comeback

The first step in regaining control over my studies is establishing a realistic plan. I’ve broken down my goals into smaller, manageable tasks to avoid feeling overwhelmed. By doing this, I’m setting myself up for success and cultivating a sense of accomplishment with every milestone reached.

  1. Revisiting Unit 1: To ensure a smooth transition, I’ll begin by briefly revisiting Unit 1 to refresh my memory and regain my momentum.
  2. Tackling Unit 2: With a refreshed understanding of Unit 1, I’ll dive into Unit 2.
  3. Mastering the Painting Skills Hub: As part of Unit 2, I plan to focus on the Painting Skills Hub section, practising various techniques and experimenting with different mediums. Engaging in hands-on learning will help me build my skills, provide a creative outlet, and make the learning process more enjoyable.
  4. Establishing a Study Routine: Consistency is key when it comes to achieving my study goals. To ensure I maintain my progress, I’ll establish a study routine, allocating specific hours each day for focused learning. This will help me stay disciplined and accountable to myself.
  5. Seeking Support: To help me stay motivated and engaged, I’ll be seeking support from fellow learners, friends, and family. Sharing my journey and learning from others will create a positive environment that fosters growth and progress.


As I embark on this journey to get back on track with my studies, I am excited about the possibilities and eager to learn. Through careful planning, dedication, and the support of those around me, I am confident that I can achieve my goals and come out of this experience even stronger than before.

Remember, setbacks are temporary, and the way we choose to respond can make all the difference. So, here’s to getting back on track, rediscovering our passions, and embracing the beauty of learning. Let’s do this!
