Life. An Apology!

Ok so I have been sooooo very slack on the blogging front lately, but I don't want you to think I am over it and that my posts will fade out to nothing! I have been immensely busy these last few weeks with uni and other life happenings. I am only doing three units at university this session but with prac looming (just two weeks away!) the pressure to have everything handed in and under control before I start is intense. I can't believe my last prac is already so close- although I guess it doesn't feel real in part because I still don't know where I am going! My uni has a lot of education students to find placements for in an area where there really aren't that many schools, so it can take some time. But right now I feel in limbo. I have been feeling ultra stressed out, so this week I have put a plan in place to help with the stress including having well structured days at home when I am studying and making sure I am much more active. So far so good, and though my head is still in a million and one places at once I hope that my nervous system starts to calm down before the intensity of prac. I know they do it much differently in the states ( and I'd like to hear how prac works in the UK) but here in Australia we do incrementally longer blocks in a school where our teaching load increases from one to the next. This will be my third and final prac, and as such I will be taking on an 80-90% class load, will be largely unsupervised after the first 2 weeks, and will be expected to take on extra duties and responsibilities in the school community. It will be full on, but hopefully very rewarding and challenging. I don't even know which subjects I will be teaching, which makes it hard to prepare. I guess all I can do is try and get my head in the right place and then I'll cope with anything really.

Anyway, I just wanted to say sorry for being so erratic with the blog; i'll try to post as much as I am able in the next two weeks. Once prac starts and I get into the rhythm of teaching again, I'm sure I'll have loads to share with you on here!

  1. Awe, girl, I wouldn't worry about it. I am doing the same thing. I haven't blogged for awhile and I feel so weird. I blame school (like always). Final exams are around the corner, so I'm kinda too busy studying, well, more like cramming.

  2. Sometimes life just has to step in for a bit. If i hadn't scheduled some posts last week, i wouldn't have any posts up either. Life does get busy at times. No worries!
