It’s been a long year, 9 months studying and working full-time now and my candle is well and truly burned at both ends. I’ve felt it particularly with this unit, Digital Forensics, as it’s been full-on, plenty to read, watch, write, investigate, more writing, revising, more writing, rinse and repeat.

I’ve found myself just needing the odd day these past few weeks where I had to set the books aside and chill, have some me time as exhaustion has set in. It truly became evident that the candle had burnt at both ends a week ago when on my right hand little bumps formed on the fourth finger on my right hand, initially at the base, then the next day at the tip too. Then, the next day at the base of the middle finger. My little sister, a doctor, said was dyshidrotic eczema, caused by stress. Ugh.

Thankfully, I’m near finished this unit and about to go on a study break, and a weeks break too from work shortly thereafter; I can’t wait! I wish was longer, though no leave. Thankfully study break is several weeks, so no 16-17 hour days for a bit.
