well, had a lecture today from Brain, interesting and informative as ever, there was a lot to take in and me being me had the worst luck of me pen drying up! so had to type all my notes up as i went! bummer. Although it was quite good as all my spelling was right! hehe, god knows what they are gona think when they see my hand written notes, thats if they can read them! really need to sort out some form of english study and soon, think if anything is gonna let me down in my exams, other than forgetting everything through sheer terror, my spelling and grammer will!
I got my feedback today from my essay on Child Poverty, was pleased with the feedback i was given, as i was expecting a lot worse! I need to take more care when proof reading, making sure all the full stops and capital letters are in the right palce, my referencing needs a big brush up i think, again little things like checking i have started with a CAPITAL letter for names of authors. Some sentences didnt make sense, or should i say they did make sense to me but they wouldnt to an outsider who would be reading it. On the positive side if i keep up the effort and keep my head down i could potentially be looking at a first for my degree! which i am well chuffed with. I certainly was not expecting that. I think some people take me the wrong way, as i come across as quite confident as i speak out a lot in lectures, but its just the best way for me to learn and understand what i am taking in, underneath i have the same if not more worries about everything that everyboday else has - Am i working hard enough? am i going in the right direction? is the work i am producing at an acceptable level for the course i am doin? all these things are constantly in my head especially when we have a new essay or presentation to do.
on a lighter note i got a rebate from my council office for over paid council tax! bonus!
see ya's x
