I sometimes think it will be a miracle if I ever manage to blog on a regular basis again. OU work and life in general has been so busy and stressful this past year that there has been little time for anything else. Even my procrastinating whilst assignment-writing has been drastically reduced ;-) However, soon my courses will be over and hopefully I will have an honours degree in something. I will be relieved it's all over but I know I'll be at a loss for a while. I won't be able to rest on my laurels though as I'll have to find some work. Unfortunately, I didn't get any interviews for a place on the postgraduate teacher training PGDE for this Autumn. There is a small chance I may get something in the 'clearing' in the Summer, but I won't hold my breath. In any case, there are only two places I can realistically go and I'm pretty sure they will not have many places, if any. I'm sad because my dream of teaching is probably not going to happen now for several reasons.
Still, perhaps when the courses are done and dusted I will get back to crafting and blogging and some guilt-free pursuits (I can't really imagine that yet). It will be wonderful just to browse through all the lovely blogs that I just don't get to nowadays and send emails that don't relate to assignments. And maybe, just maybe I'll have a chance to finally complete a pair of socks knitted with four needles instead of having not even finished one sock of the two different pairs I've started! Whoa there...maybe I'll just start with blog browsing :)
