I'm Behind the times

Visible to anyone in the world

I'm in the local library today. The weathers been lovely but probably too hot for me to spend the amount of hours I need to studying. I began to fall behind over the last few weeks with my first assignment to write the timing wasn't brilliant.

The reasons for that are good though. I landed a new job and left my last one two weeks ago, I start my new job this week. So I have had a good deal of time in between to catch up with studying and yet that hasn't really happened. Perhaps I have just had too much time on my hands!

In truth I could have got on top of the study first but I also knew there was a lot of other bits that I just wouldn't get the time to do if I didn't take advantage of my unexpected employment break - plus I had a pre-planned holiday also arranged during these weeks. I did manage to squeeze in a couple of hours studying during the holiday too.

So while I am technically still behind I am working to get back on track and I'm not overly concerned. My old work hours meant that I was always starting each week of study at the end of the week as the only free time I had was towards the end of the week. My new job and new hours have flipped that around.

Ideally by next week I will get myself ahead of schedule and into a good new routine.
