I think I've mentioned here that I've started my Psychology degree.
It's actually the first step on a long journey.
I'm really enjoying the material, although not enjoying the method of study.
I always knew it would a challenge to balance being mum
but I thought I could just slot it in by having less sleep (hello 5am)
but actually it's really hard to regularly have less sleep.
Also studying through Massey means that I had to basically buy a book and read it,
which is just not suitable for my learning style.
I need to be able to listen (and doodle) and take notes and talk to others
but just sitting here reading by myself, it's painful.
There's always 101 other things more interesting to do.
But it's ok, I've completed two assignments including my first essay
and just have a three hour exam to study for.
It's multi-choice which is a mixed blessing!
I'm really glad I only did one paper this semester
because I'm going to have to change things next year to fit it all in
and still be a functioning human being. And I'm really glad that I love the topic.
It's so unexpectedly interesting. I don't know why I didn't expect it
but I just love learning this stuff.
I'm hoping the University of Canterbury will accept me next year
so that I can work with other students, interact with them
and learn that way. Hopefully it won't matter that I'm like 1000 years old.
Have you accepted any new challenges lately??
Made plans for a change??
Got a fresh perspective??
I'd love to know.
