Still waiting . . .

I’ve had a lot of health problems this last few weeks, especially since I sent off my ECA, and it put out of my mind the anxiety of waiting for the results. But the time is getting closer now, and it’ll only be 9 days now before the results are published – and I’m getting ever more nervous to see whether or not that I’ve passed.
I guess, to be strictly honest, I don’t think that I have failed the course – but I do worry what sort of mark I will get for my very first Level 3 course, especially as I don’t feel I did my story the justice it deserved. But I guess I’ll have to be patient, and face the day when it comes 🙂

On a brighter side, I’ve another course to look forward to, and I’m very much looking forward to starting EA300 – Children’s Literature – in October! 
I’m thoroughly enjoying reading all the books for it, with some of them  totally new for me – books that I wouldn’t have thought to pick up to read – and I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the power of them, so am really looking forward to getting more insights into their creation 🙂

Another great piece of news for me – my husband has enrolled in a starter course, to see how he gets on 🙂 
He’s ‘going over to the dark side‘, as we Arts and Humanities students call it {grin}, and he has enrolled in the November start of Y157 – Understanding Society and, if he enjoys it, and can get into study mode, he’s planning on doing Y163 – Starting with psychology.
I’m not sure how he’ll get on with studying, as he’s always been a doer more than a reader, but he’s an intelligent man, so I’m hoping that the learning bug hits him as hard as it did me {grin} He is very interested in sociology and psychology, so I’m hoping these starter courses will whet his appetite to learn more 🙂 

To be honest with you, on looking through the prospectus, I wouldn’t mind doing a few of the courses myself, once I’ve got my degree (if I get my degree!) – it would certainly keep me in study mode, and stretch my horizons! Lol

    That's good to know, Hannelore 🙂
    Bob will probably be asking you more about it, before it starts in November {grin}
    It'd be good if you got the time to continue with it, wouldn't it? 🙂


  2. I did OU social science foundation course and a psychology course a few years ago and really enjoyed them. Haven't gone any further as I'm always get in trouble with deadlines in this crazy household,but maybe one day I'll be back.
