Hello Blog

The worst thing about taking an extended break from blogging is the temptation to write that remorseful “I’ve been away, but I’m back, forgive me?” blog post. And it’s true. I have been away. Obviously. This is my first post for 2012 and it’s six months into that particular year. Initially I knew I would be moving webhosts so I didn’t want to make any big changes until that had happened (and yes there are parts of this new incarnation of the site that are still a bit buggy, bear with me). But more than that I have been busy. Insanely busy.

I loved studying so much last year that I decided to study again this year. Initially I intended to study Certificate IV in Digital Media Technologies and Certificate II in Visual Arts. But then, in the eleventh hour, the planets aligned to present me with an opportunity to study Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. I couldn’t not do that too. But suddenly I found myself studying three qualifications simultaneously. Four nights a week, three days a week. [As an aside I will say this – studying at night is quite different to studying during the day, and, if I’m being completely truthful, I doubt I would choose to study at night again.]

The good news? I have now finished the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment course. I managed to successfully complete all my assessments for the other two courses too, and they will continue for the remainder of this year.

I don’t want to make any big promises regarding the frequency or the quality of the posts that will appear on this website. In a week’s time I will be back studying, and it is difficult to imagine what my schedule will look like. But I hope I will be able to share more of what is happening in my life.

  • Just checking in and delighted to see a new post. I am in awe of your studiousness. (Not sure that’s a word…)

    • Hi Cindy. According to the Free Dictionary it is a word. And thank you. Sometimes I think I am quite mad to have tried to take on so much. But I just keep thinking it would take me years to pull it off if I tried doing one course at a time.

  • It doesn’t matter how often you write, but what you write and how you present it. Sage advice I find so hard to live up to.
