Hello, Good evening and Welcome.
Firstly, may I take this opportunity to apologise for my tardiness. I must confess that I have received one or two nudging emails asking me when I was going to post a bloggy thing as my audience was waiting. I suppose I could blame it on stage fright, but actually I reckon I must be one of the busiest students in England. In fact, quite possibly, the world.
The first time I went to university I opted for a ‘student friendly’ course – water-based leisure management. This translates as learning to windsurf and sail for two years on a part time basis and spend the rest of the time in the Student bar. Cracking. Then a year or so ago I had a bright idea and decided to relive my uni days for a second time. Bird, sorry – other half, is already a qualified nutty nurse and seeing as I wrote most of her essays I thought I’d have a crack at it as well. How hard can it possibly be? Regurgitate all the essays and fly through the practice placements and Robert’s your father’s brother – qualified. Then the reality of being a mature student on a course with a new curriculum. New essays, different modules, full time course, dismal bursary, mortgage to pay, loads of bills so working almost equivalent of a full time job on top of a full time course.
Now, I’m not one to whinge – honest, but this is hard work. I am now realising that there really aren’t enough hours in the day. Yes – I know, women have known this for ages.
Anyway, now that I have made my excuses, I have an esay to write. However, I have noticed that a number of inaccuracies have been written about me which I believe amount to defamation of character. I shall aim to clarify and put the record straight on my next visit to this cyberbloggywebbynetty thing.
Sorry for all the hype. Bet you’re all gutted now!!
