Back to School

<written 31 jan 2013>

Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. Things have been hectic, I’ve been getting ready for school, yes school. I am now in a 9 month T.A.F.E course, I enrolled earlier this week and had orientation yesterday. I would have posted last night but I was brain fried, and that was just after orientation! I almost don’t want to think of how I’m going to be after a week of classes. My first class is this Friday, I’m looking forward to it, but I’m looking forward to Sabbath even more.

Orientation was Awesome, I’m going to like my teachers I think, and kept emphasizing that if we needed any help just ask, they said it about every 5-6 sentences. I found that really reassuring.

The people who were doing orientation were serious but with just the right amount of humor to keep our attentions. They really love what they do, and it showed when they talked about it. I didn’t talk to a lot of people, I did talk to 2 of my classmates though, and by then end of the class I wasn’t shaking with nerves anymore. The class is a mixture of age ranges, from my parents age down to mine. Many of them looking for a change of career, others just got out of high school and want to go this route.

It’s a mixture in my class, some are going for their cert IV and diplomas others are going for 2 cert IV, so because I’m going for 2 Certs I have more classes than if I was just working on the one.

I’m still not sure what kind of a job I can get when I finish this course, but TAFE helps their students find jobs and transfer into the work force. They said to treat TAFE like you would going to work not like you would School. Because its easy to blow off school but not so much work.

Posts will probably get significantly less as the weeks go on but I will try to keep the blog up as much as I can.
