Hey guys – if anyone is reading this haha – so apparently, after a long, hard 2 years of A-Levels and College, I somehow did enough to get into my first choice Uni onto my teaching course! *Jumps around uncontrollably* I am so so so happy and I can’t wait to move in – 19 days and counting – and so in order to leave my house and actually live at Uni, I kinda needed some stuff to take with me. Now, I’ve never lived away from home before, so this was totally new to me and I literally had no clue what to buy or what I needed. In fact, I made a list after my Mum, Dad and I went shopping, which just shows how clueless I am at the whole ‘independent living’ thing.
Having been a book worm nearly all my life, Roald Dahl’s ‘Matilda’ was a particular hit with me and has been since the day I first read it. Although people say ‘it’s just a book’, ‘Matilda’ feels like a lot more given all the things that I feel I learnt from it, both from then and now.
For someone who has feared maths for almost the entirety of their life , the QTS numeracy skills test required in order to teach/train to be a teacher, was a complete nightmare for me.
For anyone who wonders why this is, I will explain to the best of my ability (because English was definitely my preferred subject).
Although starting this blog is not what I mean by the title, ‘ A New Adventure’, it is kind of a new adventure considering I’ve never blogged before – unless you count tumblr as ‘blogging’ and then I’ve been ‘blogging’ images and relevant text posts for quite a while – E.G
ME: *SEES MY STUFFED ANIMAL ON THE FLOOR NEXT TO MY BED*
ME: WHY WASN’T I A BETTER PARENT (x)
My new adventure is named below (and in the title as a last minute edit – damn) and I hope you enjoy a little (or ‘lottle’) insight into my worries / thoughts surrounding the whole thing.
