So, someone had the bright idea of suggesting to me that seeing as I currently can't work for various reasons making it stupidly that we would be far worse off if I had a job at the moment (don't go into it, it isn't worth it), and as I am extremely frustrated at not being able to, that I could actually study.
I did the research and realised we would be no worse off (actually probably slightly better off) if I were to go to university.
So, I pondered, and decided that an English Degree would be the best option. I only discussed it with a few people, as it didn't seem worth mentioning if I didn't even get past the application stage...
I got in!
This email was exciting and absolutely terrifying all at once.
What the hell am I doing???? I'm 35, with three children, and haven't studied anything in a bajillion years! I have some super women on my Facebook who have done it, and who I have looked at wistfully wanting to be them when I grow up... but... I'm not grown up yet!!! I've sent off all the paperwork. I've filled in many forms. I found it fairly amusing that I count as being on the Special Needs Register because of the ADHD. It's now real. Really real.
I'm excited to see what I am like studying now I am medicated. I'm excited to learn. I have no clue how I am going to juggle home, uni, family...
I have no idea what I need! What do you need at uni?? I get to buy new pens, right? Do all the kids have laptops now, or is pen and paper for notes etc still normal???
