I had thought to myself, 'I should just check when my 2500 word essay for Uni is due in, I know it is coming up.' low and behold the words FRIDAY 2nd NOV jumped out of the screen and down my throat.
Oh no, oh no, oh no. I had yet to write a single word.
There is no way I am going to have time to finish this with an active 15 month old in tow.
What to do, what to do.
The lightbulb went on, MUM!
Yep, I'm a grown woman, and A Mum as well, and sometimes I still need my Mummy to help me when I drop the ball, big time.
So on Thursday morning drove the hour drive to my folks house, and ran upstairs to hide away with my head in the books. While my Mum watched her house get torn apart by the toddler tornado.
We ended up staying the night, and I ended up mostly finishing my essay, just had to do all the footnotes when I got home.
I don't know what I would have done otherwise. With everything else going on in our lives in the last couple of months my Uni degree hasn't been way up there with the things that consume my mind.
It is my first semester back since being a Mum, I tried last semester but I dropped out part way through due mostly to lack of sleep, it just wasn't conducive to legible essays and assignments,
Plus last semester I was taking a English Lit unit that required the reading of one novel a week, including the likes of Dangerous Liasons, Wuthering Heights, Blood Meridian and Passage to India. It just wasnt going to happen. Although I did read and ended up Loving Wuthering Heights, I definitely recommend it.
|Not a bad view to help me study|
To all those parents who are also students out there, I take my hat off to you, it is hard work. And sometimes even people like me who like to think I can do Everything myself need a little help too.
