The calm before the storm

… or perhaps I’m in the eye of the hurricane. There’s lots about to happen over the course of the next few weeks and months.

Changes at work mean that it looks as if I’m going to be busier than ever … but it’s nice to be wanted!

It’s about a week to go before the MITx circuits and electronics course starts. Despite that, there’s been no further communication from MIT about my registration or early access to materials … so I’m assuming that I’ll get some kind of email on the start day, which is Monday 5th March, and all will be revealed. Maybe.

I’ve finally got my act together and sent off the application forms for the Leicester University Occupational Psychology masters too. I’m hoping to hear something back from them in the next two or three weeks. Their online application process is quite slick and I’ve already had two notifications from them that they’ve received the references they needed from work and the OU. That’s really not bad going at all, as I only finally submitted my application on Sunday evening.

So things are getting busy and about to get busier.

And that’s without thinking about birthday parties, family holidays, an increasingly frail mother, graduation ceremonies (plural!), trying to get fit(ish), vegetable growing, trips to and from far-flung universities and time consumed by sundry DIY disasters. My efforts at sorting the light out above the shower over the course of the last couple of weeks deserves a post all of its own, but I’m trying to avoid thinking about it on the grounds that if I do, the light might just stay attached to the ceiling permanently. Gravity (and the light) have been winning so far.

Time to batten down the hatches. See you all on the other side of the storm. You’ll be able to spot me as I’ll be the one clinging to the life raft with a glass of red wine in my hand.

    Gosh that does sound like a bit of a whirlwind! good luck with your application to Leicester…will be interested to compare experiences… so far London Met course has been good – a lot more independent study/reading/research etc expected but the OU prepares you well for that I think. The most strange thing for me is going to actual lectures and having to work in groups!

Your thoughts?
