you don’t succeed try try again. It’s an old one but I’m using it to help me get over my trepidation of a big step I’m taking again this year.
As the title implies this isn’t the first attempt I’ve made, but hopefully the last.
I’m attempting university study again.
For some background so far I have:
Moved to the Sunshine Coast shortly after my divorce and commenced study that lasted about a month because I couldn’t find anywhere to live permanently.
Moved to Tasmania and completed one semester of study before deciding Launceston wasn’t the place for us and moving to Adelaide. Where I didn’t pick up study again because it made more financial sense to work while Tyler completed his law degree.
Moved back to our hometown and with Ty now graduated and working I started Visual Art, but with Eve not coping in childcare (and the expense) I didn’t last long.
Since withdrawing from the last attempt I have been looking online and trying to find something that I am passionate about and could study online. Unfortunately the degree that I wanted didn’t seem to be available off campus anywhere.
I applied to study Law and was accepted but could bring myself to hit the accept button. I thought about delaying another year and just studying some personal interest topics, which involved lots of time dicking around on the internet, and let’s face it that’s what I do. By some felicitous stroke during this time wasting procrastination I stumbled across it, the degree and career I wanted available online through Curtin University via Open Uni.
This year I start the long haul to where I’d like to be.
I start studying for my Bachelor of Applied Science (Architectural Science)
While it might seem that I’ve taken a blithe approach to study before, I value education and really hope this is the start of my life moving in a direction that is for me not exclusively for the greater good of my family.
So wish me luck?
