I have a few things that I’ve ticked off. I started a 101 things in 1001 days, which I’ve not updated for a while, but I have a few of my fairly bigger targets in progress at the moment that I’m pretty pleased with.
The first is the one I am most happy about. Last year I started studying for my degree. This was something I had wanted to do for years, but was never brave enough or had that much confidence in doing it. To start with I was a little unsure what subject to study. I loved Art at school, but I had barely done any painting since becoming a mum. So I was pretty sure I was a little rusty in that area. I then saw Art History and thought it was prefect. I loved history so I would be combining my love for both. I gave it a few days as I just wasn’t completely sure. Then sat flicking through the channels and I just knew I should just do History. The amount of history channel recordings on my Sky+ was kind of a big hint that it was the right choice to make!
I passed the first year with great marks and I even surprised myself. School always felt hard work but with my degree I want to learn so it seems easy.
The second is another one in progress. It’s learning to drive. Again for years, it was something I really wanted to do, however, in my previous relationship we were never financially settled for me to spend so much money on myself so it was put off. I always knew I would love driving, the sense of freedom is so alluring. I honestly can’t wait to be driving, which shouldn’t be too long. My driving instructor says I’m test ready, however Louth being a tiny place means I have to wait weeks for my test!
Lastly, it’s a little bit boring, but it’s getting my own finances sorted. I’m not where I want to be yet, but I’m heading in the right direction!
