French connection

Having been away from home for two weeks, I'd completely forgotten about my Uni results until Supportive Husband No.1 reminded me.  I literally threw myself out of my chair when I remembered to check - High Distinctions for both subjects!!  It felt so good.  So good in fact, that I've decided to start back full-time next semester and do four subjects instead of two.  This does have the potential for disaster and means I will be at Uni every day.  I'd like to give it a shot though and I guess I can always drop a class if it gets to be too much. I'm feeling very jour de vie - could have something to do with my location!

Well, I am on holiday but this blogging/internet thing is really becoming addictive! I've had so much contact with my Mum, it doesn't really feel like I've been away and has made the whole trip so much easier. I have, however, had no internet coverage for the last week and this is when I noticed my habit!

Now I'm back on-line and my addiction to blogs, Facebook, Skype and checking The Courier Mail online for news back home is in full swing.  As well as coming in handy for checking Uni results no matter where you are, the internet is also useful for translation of tricky foreign words if they can't be found in the dictionary.  I can totally see why Teenage Daughter No. 1 can't pull herself away from it!  Still it's not quite the same as the sights and sounds of a foreign city!  Until next time - au revoir!

I've done it!!!

Well, I've finally done it!! Got accepted into Uni AND created a blog!!! After searching for insightful websites to help me tackle my journey into academia at my ripe old age and coming up with nil, I decided to start one of my own. I hope this blog will encourage anyone who has ever doubted their own abilities, to put one foot in front of the other and achieve their ambitions, desires, matter what they are. If anyone has any inspiring stories to share, I would love to hear them. I love an inspiring story!!!
