My Experience With My PGCE: How Can You Survive It?

Life as a PGCE student isn’t easy, and trust me if anyone says it is I don’t believe them. But by god is it worth it. In less than a year I have made a full 180 with my life in a positive way. My PGCE has given me direction in my life as well as clarity in so many aspects; for the first time in my life I have something I want to do, and that to me is the most exciting thing.

Brighton: A Weekend Getaway

For my birthday this year my boyfriend well and truly spoilt me. It was our first “celebration” since we’ve been together so it all felt really rather special. I’ve always been the planner in relationships so to have someone plan and then surprise me with a weekend away was really the most amazing thing! I wanted to share with you some of the things we did with our time, the places we ate and what we saw too!

What a Year

I’ve done it.

Or at least nearly…just waiting for the paperwork to officially be signed, but I am a fully qualified teacher.

Gosh that feels scary writing that, but equally exciting. I’ve spent the last year or so working up to this moment; many late nights writing and planning, many tears shed and wobbly moments, but equally many laughs and stories to get me through. I never before understood just what it takes to cut it as a teacher and I’m only just starting! I’ve got the next chapter in my life starting now and I cannot wait!

Diary Of A Trainee Teacher

So I’ve neglected my blog yet again…it’s becoming a bad habit but hey, this space on the internet is mine so I guess I can do what I like with it.

In September I made the big decision to train to become a Primary School Teacher and WOW it is not easy. Not that I ever thought it would be, but honestly I am so grateful for all of my teachers for what they went through in order to teach me.

I thought I’d chronicle a bit of my journey. It probably won’t be regular because I don’t really get the time to do a lot of things I want right now but I’ll post at some point!

I’ll be sharing musings etc from my time in school and whilst in University as well as my thoughts and feelings. I guess a mini journal of my time really.

One Week In Marrakech

Morocco was undeniably an experience I will never forget. For those of you that have read my previous post, you will perhaps understand why. (I recommend giving it a read before this one as it helps lay the context!) This post today is all abut Morocco, the sights I saw, the places I visited and all of that typical travel stuff.  Continue reading “One Week In Marrakech”

Travels With My Ex

This is a post that has been a little while in the making. It’s taken me a little bit of time to build up the courage to not only write it, but to actually hit that publish button. The last couple of months or so have been emotional in a variety of ways – filled with ups and downs and now I’m ready to share this with you. And as a heads up, this isn’t actually a post about my time in Morocco – I’ll be doing one of them later!

When I booked a trip to Morocco earlier this year with my boyfriend the last thing I thought would happen would be for me to write this post. Needless to say, he’s not my boyfriend anymore and with us both not wanting to lose money and both wanting to visit Morocco this post was born.
