Oh boy this week is going to be crazy! I foolishly agreed to do overtime and i'm working 12 days in a row with no break. I want the extra money for my trip to Japan in April :) Recently I have been considering going back to university. I went before in 2007. I was 19 at the time and still very childish and foolish. I did not take the work seriously and got very homesick because up until that point I had never been away from home before. I studied media production at the University of Chichester and I was pushed into it by my College Tutor, In England we have a system where you can pay your university fees up front or you can take out a loan from the student loans company and I did the latter. I was only at university for three months but already I owe student loans £3000. The good thing is you don't start paying back your student loan until you are earning over £25,000 a year. And I've been thinking since I already owe them money for a degree I never completed perhaps I should try again and this time study really hard and complete it.
It would be really nice because I would be the only person in my family who has a degree, I come from a working class background and my family have never been privileged or had lots of money and I see it as an opportunity to better myself and to get a more rewarding and better paid job. I work in a supermarket called ASDA full time and it's a horrible dead end job with no opportunities to grow or earn more money. In the past couple of years I have become very interested in Languages. I studied German for a while and I love watching foreign movies with subtitles and picking up different words from associating what I hear with the words I see on the screen. When I was at school I was told I had a talent in English and it's true that I have always been interested in my native language and I love to write stories because I am a creative person. I also love to travel so I would like to do my degree in English or teaching English as a foreign language. I am not sure about my ability to teach school children but I babysit for my younger nephews and nieces who say I am their favorite babysitter so hopefully this means I have a gift with children! It must be so rewarding to teach children :)
So yes that is what has been happening with me recently, I hope you have all been well? Tell me what you have been up to! Take care ;)
