Friday Gratitude

I started my MA this week. After having previous plans for postgraduate study go hideously wrong, I never thought I'd get the chance to do an MA because I just couldn't afford the fees and living costs. Even though I think it's going to be really hard to work full time and study part time (ok, I know it's going to be incredibly hard) I just glad to finally have to chance to try and pull it off.

Being able to walk into work - I might be a little chilly at first, but I'm getting exercise, looking at the sky, and most importantly do not have to sit on an aged, smelly rail replacement bus, which has condensation running down the inside and puddles of water in the aisle, whilst listening to fellow passengers talking about stabbing people up. (I also just had to share that little vignette of my week.)

Working in the same building as one of my favourite friends, and the resulting delicious lunch we had today. Chicken + bacon + avocado + gossip = happy me.


  1. I'm so glad you're getting the opportunity to work on an MA. Sounds fun to have a friend nearby for lunch. That bus ride sounds pretty terrible.

  2. Thanks Janie. An ulcerated tonsil and accompanying dragon breath meant I've stayed in more than I intended to this weekend, and thus got plenty of work done! Talk about being careful what you wish for!

  3. Your new job situation and new MA endeavor sound wonderful. I am very happy for you!
