I have been AWOL!!
AWOL by sending myself to an institution for higher learning and forcing myself back into timetabling and assignments.
Assignments and to-do lists and leaving the keyboard in favour of a lot of pen ink to paper.
Welcome to Staffordshire University.
I am only doing this to myself. This whole ‘I wanna be a journalist’ midlife crisis (that I started when I was 8) is coming to a head. It should be strange that becoming what I am now describing as a trainee journalist should have brought me away from writing for quite a few weeks.
Journalism has brought be to do other things. Took me out to meet people and take selfies with tortoises.
Life is adjusting and if I thought that being a working mum was hard – being a student mum is harder. You can’t leave the job at the door.
So this is a little late but I am back and ready to get back to writing. An escape from the politics discussions that are now my daily lectures.
More on university and student life later, so please bear with me as the blog may change and be pulled in a million directions for a while as I find my feet in what now feels every corner of my life.
I still have the usual monthly targets and updates though –
- After investing in a new touch screen grown-up journalist phone (am I the only Mum who shuns all new technology after having a child) I can now update all social media on the move (and take better quality pictures), so expect more on there. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Please join me.
- There are still a few days to help support Visit from the Stork in their venture to raise enough money to print the magazine for a whole year. Learn more about it here with a very (un)sexy voice over from me – https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-grow-our-social-enterprise-for-young-parents
So coming to the end of the month, let’s just try to get back into the swing of things.
Everything is changing. The road is open ahead.
