It occurs to me that I never quite got around to doing my end of September Goal Update post.
Work – I took my exam at the end of September. So most of September was taken up with frantic studying. It paid off (at least in terms of how stressful I found the exam), because it was by far the easiest of the sittings I’ve attempted for that subject. Whether that’s just because it was an easier paper or whether I was actually better prepared remains to be seen. Results in December.
Family – Dave and the Kitties were, clearly, a little neglected because of the studying. After my exam, we (Dave and I, not the kitties!) went out for dinner to celebrate, which was very relaxing – just what I needed.
Guiding – When I said I spent all my time studying, that wasn’t quite true. I did take a weekend off to go to YOYO, which was awesome.
I did also go to Brownies, although we did easy things with very little prep needed – a pow wow to find out what they wanted, some games, and some things involving the phases of the moon (which, alas, was declared “boring, too like school”).
Kempo – I didn’t really go to Kempo in September. It was one of the things that fell by the wayside in favour of studying. To the extent that when I turned up again, my Sensei said that he was just about to phone me to find out if I was ok because he hadn’t seen me for so long. It’s nice to be missed!
Reading – Yeah, well. According to Goodreads, I didn’t read any books in September. I started The Story of the Girl Guides, but didn’t finish it until October. Mostly I was reading Life Insurance Subject SA2 Course Notes 2014, which is about as exciting as it sounds.
October is going well so far – I’ve finished The Story of the Girl Guides and I’ve also read Greenstar, which I believe to be one of the better books I’ve read this year.* Anyone with even a vague interest in sci-fi humour should definitely look into it. The link goes to the intro pack, which won’t even cost you anything!
Blogging – I could use studying as an excuse for not writing so much, but it would be a lie. I just didn’t have a lot to say. I’ll try to do better.
