Sometimes I forget my very own space here as life wraps its arms tightly around me and urges me to push on with that long list of things to do, things to accomplish and things to see. I have only 8 more modules to go for this year in my course I am super excited about but mostly (without sounding like the biggest wanker ever) proud of myself for taking the huge leap and getting this far, distance education is not easy you constantly have to keep yourself motivated you have no one pushing you as there are no individual deadlines just what modules you must complete by the end of the 2years. I am so happy i’ve managed to stay on track and keep motivated, for me its the fact that i’ve been given the chance from my Husband to do the one thing I love more than him and I owe him everything for being so supportive and encouraging me to not only reach for my dream but he pulled it so close to me that I could touch it! I have enjoyed everything I have learnt so far even the things I am weaker at makes me even more determined I just did a few rendering modules which I will not lie I struggled big time on I am not much of a drawer and I have little patience so to have to sit there and really teach myself to go slow and be patient with myself was very hard I am going to purchase a book my Tutor photocopied a few pages for me called “Interior design drawing” by Alan Hughes which I am hoping will help me improve. As I am over half way for my course for this year I am starting to ponder my future, my career, where I want to go, what I want to do, and what I want to accomplish I have never ending questions running through my head. My Husband & I are keen to get out into the world and try new things while we are young we have no kids and no mortgage so we feel this is a prime time for us to explore and enjoy life before we begin our next stage in life. We are looking at moving to Melbourne we absolutely love it there however we only know the touristy side of the town, we are going to go back a few times and look at suburbs and what Melbourne is really like from a liveable perspective. Besides Melbourne we also want to go to America a big dream of mine, my Husband has already been there when he was 21 being around that age now I to want to explore the unknown to me, we are planning to go as a whole family in a few years so plenty of time to save and what a time it will be as they say “Travel is the only thing you buy, that makes you richer”.
Besides my course I am very excited to be seeing my Parents & Sister in August a spontaneous trip I booked for a week I love visiting them and only wish they would all fit in my suitcase when I leave it’s always bitter sweet I have to say goodbye to them but I also am happy to be back with my Husband. One day we will see more of them when we live in Melbourne… I hope (yes Mum you should move there!)
Hopefully life loosens its grip on me I need to play more! bring on these next two months!!
