With only one class this week and one next week I feel as if I have a bit of a reprieve from academic commitments. I have done NO study/assignment preparation for the last two days and while I have to admit I am enjoying the break, I think it's produced writer's block. I have a short essay due next week on any topic and I can't for the life of me think of one!
So, how have I spent my free time? On Tuesday night I went to a concert with a girlfriend and didn't get to bed until 1.00am after much talking and giggling (something I haven't done in a loooooong time); on Wednesday, we had breakfast at a cosy little cafe, followed by a spot of shopping; Wednesday night I had to catch up on Survivor which I missed the night before (man, I can't wait to see Russell voted off! Go Sandra!) and today was the day I intended to get the short essay out of the way but now I have visions of chocolate cake swimming around in my head.
On the home/children front, it appears my TD No. 2 has grown out of the "boys are gross" stage and wants to start dating - not on my watch!!!! My, how the years fly by. Now I have TWO teenage daughters whose interests have gone from slumber parties to members of the opposite sex! Yes, a natural stage in life but did it have to happen so quickly? At the moment I feel as if I'll wake up one morning and be a grey-haired old lady (with a degree).
...Might be a good time to make that chocolate cake and drown my sorrows!
I've done it!!!
Well, I've finally done it!! Got accepted into Uni AND created a blog!!! After searching for insightful websites to help me tackle my journey into academia at my ripe old age and coming up with nil, I decided to start one of my own. I hope this blog will encourage anyone who has ever doubted their own abilities, to put one foot in front of the other and achieve their ambitions, desires, dreams...no matter what they are. If anyone has any inspiring stories to share, I would love to hear them. I love an inspiring story!!!
