Well I did it - made the big scary decision - and now it's a done deal - *gulp*
I quit my last degree course today - phew! I couldn't stand another second of postcolonial theory, marxist theory, feminist theory or psychoanalytical theory either. It was doing my nut!
So, what now? Well I have a straight ordinary BA and the university has said that as I only need 60 credits to have an ordinary Hons degree that if in a year or so I want to come back I can convert my straight dull BA to a slightly more glam BA Hons by doing 1 more course of my choice at level 3.
You cannot know the relief I am feeling. It was not an easy step as I have spent 6 years on this, but you can only hit your head on a brick wall for so long before you burst your brain, and that is what I have been feeling for the last couple of months.
So now I can put more time into home educating J - which has always had to fit around my study schedule and for the 1st time in 6 years I can spend the summer with my family, not hunched over text books, revising or writing long and tedious essays. That sounds soooooo good.
I can't wait to wake up tomorrow morning without that dread in my belly that I have a child to educate, a home to run and a 2000 word (god awful) essay to churn out. I will be able to stretch, relax and fit stuff in as it comes. Truly a liberating sensation.
Other - stuff.
I did refelt my fuzzy feet - as suggested by the wise sages on the Knittyboard and now they fit a dream.
Nicole from the board sent me the most glorious Cascade 220 - in return for some stuff I sent across the pond. She chose a lovely autumnal palette - I'm still swooning and plotting what it will become.
I hate double seed/moss stitch - it is an invention of pure evil.
I'm going to Ali (Faerynuffs) party - *happy dance* - I am so looking forward to seeing her and meeting her hubby and girls.
And instead of hitting the books this afternoon - as all other stuff is done - I think I might indulge myself with a nice long walk for the dog and a little knitting - shucks ain't life tough - hahahahahahaha.
