Yesterday I had my last Day school/tutorial for Lola. But it was more than that, assuming I pass this course, it was also my last day school/tutorial for my degree. This is quite a scary thought. Suddenly the end is sight, even though I still have 3 months to go, and 7 years of study is very close to ending.
Part of me is over joyed. When I started I was not intending to complete a degree, just take a short creative writing course. These have been 7 long years and I am really looking forward to having my spare time all to myself again.
But at the same time I am sad. I have found the last 7 years really interesting, if hard work at times, and I have learnt A LOT. The OU is a lovely place to study and I’ll miss the community. And in a way all that spare time is a little scary. With no deadlines to work towards what will keep me motivated and off the sofa?
I’m sure I’ll find something to do. I guess I need to complete my last 3 months first before I get too worried.
