Today marks the first day of a very stressful year.
As of today, until I’m notified otherwise by my uni in Adelaide telling me they’ve screwed up again, I am now working full time and studying two separate degrees at two different universities.
It is time to get Sheldon Cooper style organised. Yes, I mean right down to my bathroom breaks!
Remember how I said that I quit uni and then later got accepted into a writing degree?
Well that first uni has decided, after 6 months of playing nasty with me and being generally unhelpful (resulting in me saying “F- you, I ain’t moving to Adelaide to finish my damn degree”), to turn around and realise that expecting external students to spend 5 months away from home isn’t exactly living up to the definition of ‘external study’ and are trying to get me placed locally.
In the meantime, I accepted the offer from the second uni and got my materials in the mail and went “Yeeehah! I can’t wait to do this study”. Literally. I did. It looks like awesome fun and I really, really, really, want to do it.
So now (for this year anyway as I finish degree number 1 in November – if they come through for me with placements, otherewise I quit again), I am studying two degrees simultaneously. While working. With a toddler. While training for an Olympic Distance Triathlon.
Who says women can’t have it all? I’ll tell you all about how I am having it all in my next post.
