Did I mention that I was going back to school? Well I’m going back to school this year. Full time. Which is really going to cut in on my new hobby of riding my bike to antique shops and the beach every day.
I decided last year that I should go back and study something. Mainly because I’m sick of doing office work. And lasy year I did an accounting software course and the business certificate III course and they were both really boring as bat shit. Which is not only apparently boring but very sticky. And I thought that if I had to go back and do the office word and excel courses I’d probably have to kill myself first. And I figured I’d have to do the word course because while I was doing the business course I can’t even remember the amount of times I yelled out to Lizzie – HOW DO I PUT A BULLET IN A DOCUMENT AGAIN.
So I thought to myself, what do I like doing. Really love doing. And it was reading. Always has been. So I’m going off to do the librarians certificate and then hopefully diploma at TAFE. I don’t know what you call TAFE overseas. Maybe a community college or something. It’s where you go to learn a trade or do an apprenticeship. So hairdressers, beauticians, electricians, chefs, all sorts of technology, computer and business things, you can do aged care or animal care or you can become a mechanic or a cake decorator or a librarian.
I must admit that after a cake boss and ace of cakes marathon I did have a moment when I thought that I should have chosen cake decorating.
But anyway I’m doing it full time so I can get it over with in six months. Part time can drag on for two years. So thats monday to thursday (inclusive) 9.30 am – 4pm. Then if I love it I’m going on to do the diploma which will take another six months. It’s going to be a busy time because I still have to work part time and I’m still considering the tiles and if I’ll be able to keep up with making them or if I’ll take a break from them. Although I did just accept an order from the Taree Art Gallery.
And the certificate I’m doing is museum and library information services and I’m thinking now that I might really like to use it to work in an art gallery or museum rather than a library. Who knows, maybe I’ll just do the course then go back to riding my bike to the beach.
I start next tuesday.
I hope there are still some brain cells bouncing about up there.
