The bitch is back

Yes, I'm back.  I've been in hibernation for the last couple of months - didn't really have much to say.  I actually deleted my blog altogether which was rather scarey for a while there.  But I figured, I've been keeping a record of 'my life as a mature age student' for  so long, I have to continue.  At least until I've graduated and I'm no longer a student.  Wonder what I'll be then?

Anyway, update, update, update...Uni is going extremely well and I'm now a member of an honours society, 'being in the top 15% of my peers' at university!  Five years ago, if you'd have told me this I never would've believed you.  I didn't think it was possible for me to even get into uni, let alone do so well.  I've now made peace with the fact that I try hard and receive the results I strive so hard for.  Although, there's still that little voice inside me at the beginning of each semester telling me this could be the semester it all starts to go downhill.

Nevertheless, it's time for me to start thinking about my life post-uni.  Should I consider doing post-grad?  Should I look for work?  If so, in what field?  I do rather like the idea of being a lecturer/tutor at a university but I can't even contemplate a PhD at the moment.

For the time being I think I'll concentrate on the journey rather than the destination.


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, matter what they are. If anyone has any inspiring stories to share, I would love to hear them. I love an inspiring story!!!
