Last week I did something I have never done before – I attended university! In what seems to have been a moment of
overambitious insanity delusion last year, I applied to go to university as post graduate student, having never actually been to university to gain any undergraduate qualifications. Well lo and behold, I was accepted and now I am a university student studying Adolescent Health and Welfare.
In an ideal world I will have completed my Grad Dip by studying part time for the next 2 years or if I am being even more ambitious, a Masters after 4 years. That same ideal world would also be a world where
- I wasn’t working full time.
- I didn’t have 2
monstersdarling children to keep entertained, involved and on track.
- I knew what study was and how to do it, not to mention knowing how to do research projects or writing for academic papers.
- I didn’t feel so old walking. Seriously I was wandering around a campus full of the people who, based on age alone, could easily become a case study for my research!
- I didn’t need sleep (Surely there has to be a way to find an extra few hours a day just to sleep!)
- I wasn’t about to start training seriously again to walk the Kokoda track in July.
On a more positive note, hopefully by the time I finish studying I will have some vague concept about how to cope with my own adolescent monsters!
Oh and because I now have an overabundance of spare time, I have also decided to be a better blogger too, making this my second post in the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog over at Aussie Mummy Bloggers.
