What was I thinking?

22 Feb

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

  1. I wasn’t working full time.
  2. I didn’t have 2 monsters darling children to keep entertained, involved and on track.
  3. I knew what study was and how to do it, not to mention knowing how to do research projects or writing for academic papers.
  4. 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!
  5. I didn’t need sleep (Surely there has to be a way to find an extra few hours a day just to sleep!)
  6. 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.

    Love your list post.
    Seriously you inspire me to do more with my time. It will be a juggle to fit it all in but you sound like you can accomplish anything if you can ….
    Walk the Kokoda track again …?

    As a post graduate student, I had high ambitions to do a Masters.
    After working part-time, sole-parenting and completing 3 units last year, I’m finishing the 4th unit this semester taking my Post Grad Certificate and running away from uni until my daughter is much older!
    Good luck 🙂

    Congratulations on going to uni! Hope all the study goes well. Funnily enough I’ve just started back to my study after nearly 3 years off, and am even part way through writing a post about it! LOL.
