This weekend has been spent in front of the computer surrounded by loads of papers. Yes, it sounds nerdy. But it’s because I was preparing for my talk which is coming up this Wednesday. At last count, 46 people had registered for it. And I think that was enough to give me a serious kick on my backside. I impressed myself by my focus and concentration particularly in the mornings. And by this afternoon, I had done my PowerPoint and run through the whole thing once.
Anyway, all this brings back memories of uni days.
I miss uni. I miss the anxiety and the adrenalin rush. I miss looking up articles, printing them out and reading them while making notes. In fact, I’d forgotten how I prepared for presentations! It’s been that long. And again, all it does it make me contemplate going back to uni. I’m not sure if I’ll even get in. But maybe, just maybe, I should try. There is just one uni in the whole of Australia that offers a distance education program in clinical psychology. It doesn’t leave me with many options. And limits my chances.
As I take a break from all that preparation, all I can think of is how enjoyable the process is. And how I’d like to do it again.
Yes, I’m a nerd. I know it. And I’m not ashamed to admit it.
I’ll leave you with a picture from last night when I was taking a break.
Yes, someone [Buttons] thought it’d be a fun game to slide across the articles stacked in a pile on the floor.
Entirely my fault!
Until next time,
