I've had this stuck in my head all week.
[Diamond Life - Deep Dish Remix]
This week :
I'm back to uni and into the final semester of my degree. I think I can speak for everyone on my course when I say, 'I'll be happy when I can have my life back'.
Exams are over and this week I've been waiting for the results - *drum roll* the first two were disappointing, because I'd thought I'd done better in those than in the others (never a great feeling). I got a 2.2. in both my listening & translation. Grades have never really mattered to me, but for all the work I felt like I put in; just above a pass was not what I was hoping for. However yesterday I had two great moments when I got a First (93%) in my Italian reading & a 2.1 (62%) in my Spanish commentary - which I clearly must have bullshitted my way through , because that was honestly my first try!
So it's safe to say that things are improving :) - I also snapped the photo below while walking home. Reminding me that when you pause, breathe and look up things always appear better. I'm ready now to focus on my dissertation, the next set of final exams in May and applying for my teacher training.
After having a chat with my tutor, I have decided on becoming a Primary school teacher with a Modern Foreign Language! Yippee. The mixture of things I'll be able to do really appeals to me, I have a huge love of art, English and music as well as Spanish, so to be able to pass on that enthusiasm is something I'm really excited about!
I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch. I still need to get onto a PGCE course and then pass! But even the application process is making me happy; after four years - or entire lifetime of working towards a career- whichever way you want to see it, I am finally getting there, I am finally on the last leg of achieving one of my 'dreams'.
And if you're not happy about that, then what can you be?
How has your week been?
