FEEL LIKE I'VE FALLEN OFF THE WAGON ....


What Wagon you might Say ???

Well it feels like I've fallen off the Blogging Wagon.  I haven't blogged since the 15th of January, and it feels like it has been forever.  Been so busy with studying and other things, that I just haven't got around to it.  Man those assignments come thick and fast.  Seems like you just get over doing one assignment and you're onto yet another.

Sometimes I feel like there has been a mental block there too where writing is concerned with regard to the blog.  I'm sure I'm not the only one that's had this problem .... or ..... am I ??

I'm onto my last essay for the subject I'm doing at the moment and it's something to get my teeth into.  The last assignment was a group assignment and whilst I didn't mind the topic, it certainly was a challenge.  The challenge was working with other people in a group, but online.  Two of the participants in our group were awesome, so helpful and both seemed to be committed to working in a group.  The three of us worked so hard and then the other three seemed to think they would leave all the work to us, although one other person sort of got their act together at the end.  It's hard too when most of your mark is reliant on what you all do as a group.  Still, can't be responsible for what others do and the tutors had a written record of what we all did, so I'm sure they'll take that into account when marking our assignment.  

Having said all that I have really enjoyed the topic and liked working on my own area.  I have learn't so much about working online.  I've found some lovely people out there in technology land who are willing to help.  Some have done other subjects and so they were a little more familiar with what to do than I was.  I felt like I was drowning, totally overwhelmed and out of my depth completely at the beginning, but now I feel heaps better and am finding that it's not so bad at all.  I'm sure I still have heaps to learn owing to the fact that I'm only just starting out, but now I know that I will get there, I feel so much better.  I'll come across other subjects where I'll feel out of depth, but this has shown me that somehow I'll get the hang of it at the end.

That's the part I feel good about, the fact that I know I can get the hang of things, even when at first it seems overwhelming.  That I have the intelligence and ability to do it.  It feels go to know these things and to realise that I've found this out about myself, by myself, without anyone telling me.   So often the lessons that we learn in life are the lessons that come through doing something else.  We learn them by ourselves and not by being told or being shown. 

Hopefully I'll start blogging a bit more now and take the time to still blog despite my study.  It's a bit of a challenge, but one which I'm not going to let get the better of me.
