Only two weeks to go!!!!

I am enjoying being at university for 3 weeks, because I know that soon Ill be flat out teaching, and have no life again for 6 weeks.

Firstly, I am complaining about having to travel about 1 1/4 hrs to school AND BACK!!!!! I know that because I am studying two subjects that it is difficult to place me, but I was hoping that I would be a little closer. On the positive side, I have heard good reports about the school, so I am beginning to pep myself up.

Secondly, I am seriously worried about my next placement. My first subject is Business and I feel really confident with teaching that subject, however COMPUTING on the other side is a different ball game. My qualification in computing was a Diploma in I.T, so it was basically like a crash course in the subject, so I am VERY scared that I am out of my depth. What if they ask me to take Higher Computing classess?????? I am not strong enough. I kinda half thought about seeing if I can go back onto a single subject program. but I am not sure if it is too late. What if I do suck at it, that will have serious implications on my career.

Thirdly, I was watching This Morning today (a tv programme) and they were talking about Friday the 13th. A specialist on the programme said that if you believe that negative things are going to happen, then they more often than not will. Therefore, I have decided to convince myself that I am a confident teacher, and I can be assertive. Lets hope that this works.

Fourthly, I think that I have the flu. There is nothing much I can do about this apart from bed rest and drink plently of fluids. There is definitely something wrong with me, when I have lost my appetite. I am not sure why I am sharing this, with you all....but everyone else is at work...so I have no one to moan too.

Sorry to hear you're not well.

You missed a fantastic ICT spot this morning. David was on fine form with his doofers, and his guest Ewan McIntosh gave a great presentation on blogs and podcasts.

Your blog was mentioned, in fact -- which is why I'm here, reading it!

Get better soon, Lesley. And sorry for name-checking you on the one lecture (I'm sure ;-) when you weren't there. Oops!
