Last week I started my PGDip, I never thought that I would fall behind so quickly, 8:30-5:30 lectures everyday was so intense and I’m pleased that it’s over. I went out on Saturday when I probably shouldn’t have but thought I could do with a break, the fringe festival was on all around Auckland and I happen to catch a few shows. Forbidden Broadway was pretty cool if a tad extravagant at $30 a ticket, square eye pair was cheap and funny, but by far the most impressive show of the night was a performance called Chalk.
It was about life in a rest home, and was performed by just two girls who played all the characters, and they were amazing. It was funny, but also had moments when it made you want to cry, well worth the $16.
I have a lecture tomorrow which I have two rather long readings for and a exam on Saturday which I have hardly had time to study for. I should have never taken a year off to look for a job. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks i’ll be back into the uni mindset and into a good routine. I was about to pack it in today, it has been so shit, everyone in my lectures are much smarter than I am, they are so driven and passionate about what they are studying, it makes me feel out of place. I guess it wasn’t all bad though, there were one or two redeeming moments.
It’s not all bad, having some direction in life feels good after being lost for a year. Now all I need to do is get out of this house!
