Throughout my years of study and work, I have come to a conclusion regarding how I pick up and learn new skills and subjects: the way subjects are taught in school or university, is not the way I actually learn. I don’t think I have ever been “taught” anything. If I want to learn something, then I go out and discover it for myself.
I’ve been told recently that I should avoid stressful situations, because stress causes migraines. That’s a very simplistic take on an extremely complex subject. I’m not sure that avoiding stress is even possible, or more realistically, should I? I may not get out of bed in the morning. Ever again.
This is just one of those “pet peeve” posts really. A soapbox moment, if you will…
Over the winter months I’ve had to do a fair amount of driving to and from work and university. Being in the UK over winter generally means that you’re driving in the pitch black both mornings and evenings. As a migraine sufferer I’ve always found it dazzling looking at oncoming headlights and bright tail lights for the hour-plus commute. Continue reading
Our results came out this afternoon for our exams taken just a few weeks ago in January. I was unsure how I had done, but happily I PASSED! (Does the Happy Dance!)

Roll on April 2014!

Since the last time I posted a quick update, I quite literally haven’t stopped! I’m essentially doing 7 days per week, what with work work, university homework, business trips, classes.. etc. Consequently, I feel somewhat like the walking dead! I don’t know what is going on! Or what day it is. (What day is it? Anyone?!)
Happy New Year To All!
I’ve been dying to get back on here and start writing again.. but due to my postgrad MBA course, I’ve had actual “homework” to do! I’ve been keeping a list of topics and ideas, so I don’t forget (because I will).
Right now, I’m working on a group report, which is due to be handed in on the 11th Jan, and then I have some dreaded EXAMS! (Eek!) Therefore, my lack of activity on here, is due to my frenzied attempts to keep up with the nonsense going on elsewhere!
Wish me luck! Cheers!
Well it’s been an interesting couple of weeks so far! (Despite getting that nasty chest infection that seems to have done the rounds! *cough*). Most events seem to centre around twitter.. who doesn’t love a bit of twitter fame, huh? I know I do.
