As you can see by the very self-explanatory title, I failed an exam. More specifically, my microeconomics exam (which arguably was more of a blessing but we'll get onto that).
You see, I hate economics - or I don't hate it per se, but have a love/hate relationship with it. Especially microeconomics - I just don't understand it. There's so many numbers and I can barely get my head around it, but my dislike of economics is not the point of this post.
Obviously, in an ideal world, I would have passed it (probably continuing with economics, as I kinda needed a setback to show me how much I struggled with the subject) but this didn't happen, and as much as I feel like I should be upset by it, I'm not.

The point of this post is that it's okay to fail something. I'm only in second year (so, it doesn't really count) and, to be fair, I didn't fail badly at all - which made me feel a lot better knowing that if I got a different person to mark it, I could have passed - and also, I don't understand the subject, I can't get my head around it, and I know I tried my best.
I know I studied really hard (obviously not hard enough to pass but y'know) and without sounding really cringe and cliche - how many times will I say that before realising that is my brand though? - maybe this wasn't the path for me? I mean, I never went into uni wanting a degree in Marketing with Economics, it sorta just happened. And then actually passing first year economics fed me some false hope - so I can do the subject then!! Once I realised how out of my depth I was, it was too late for me to change subjects and here we are.
I mean, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't slightly disappointed in myself, but mostly I'm not. At the end of the day, I tried, but sometimes things don't work out the way we want them to. And that's okay.
