Oh my goodness, I cannot believe it's been almost 4 months since I last posted anything! Life has been pretty mad over the past few months and blogging most definitely took a back seat for a while, even reading did at one point.
In September I started my second degree and boy is it different from the first time around! For my first degree I pretty much managed to get away with doing as little as possible. I didn't go to class, I did all my assignments the day before they were due and studied as little as I could get away with. Somehow, I still graduated with a decent degree at the end of all that! This time, I definitely can't do that! I am now doing a nursing degree and it is so much more work than I ever imagined. I spent the first few months either in uni for theory lectures or at home spending all my free time studying and doing online work. I am now just about to finish my first placement and I honestly don't remember the last time I was this tired! It is incredibly hard work and takes a lot of my time and energy, especially as I want to do really well this time around.
So basically that's where I've been! As I said I am almost finished my first placement and after that I have two days of class, one assignment and one exam and then I am finished for Christmas! No doubt I'll still find some work to do over the Christmas break but I definitely plan to devote a lot of my time to reading and blogging over that time and hopefully get back into the swing of things.
Expect a wrap up as soon as I can, that should give you an idea of how little time I have had to read these past few months!
