New And Last Study Period for 2015

01 Sep

I have now started my last three units of this degree and am on my way to the finish line. I couldn’t be any more anxious and excited! The units look to be the hardest yet and I hope that I can get through them without failing. I really want to finish my degree this year so that I may start working at last in 2016. The units I’m enrolled in are Information Theory & Research; Professional Issues for Information Studies and lastly Conservation and Preservation. I have actually given up writing in this blog during the semester as the workload is simply too much. There are so many readings, exercises and so much research to do for assessments, plus looking after my kids. Having said that, I will try to write something about a site visit that is coming up, which I’m looking forward to. I believe the students in my state are all meeting at our State Library, so that will be nice to see them again in person. Being a Internet-based distance education degree, it gets lonely at times and apart from Facebook, I don’t get a chance to socialise with my peers.

So today, I’m spending my day introducing myself on the uni’s discussion forums and downloading all my unit materials. I’m seeing a lot of readings for the first week which bodes. Well, someone’s gotta do it. I’m going to try really hard not to panic and take one day at a time. See you all in thirteen weeks…
