Just so you don’t think I have just been sitting around moping the last two weeks after the last two posts, I thought I would do a quick blog post before getting going on errands and assignments.
Even with the chemo side effects, I have managed to get to Uni every day that I should, I’ve got my assignments all in on time, including working with a group for a ‘Law and the State in Social Work’ in which I took on the task of formatting and finalising the final submission, as well as doing my analysis of an individual Act. I chose the easier Act as I didn’t know for sure how the chemo would effect me and wanted to make sure I could be a constructive and useful part of the group never-the-less. So that is why I volunteered to do the wrap up work, also it’s something I have done for years, desktop publishing of newsletters and other things has meant I am good at getting the formatting done fast and making sure it looks good and is cohesive.
In regards to Uni also, even though studying and assignments wear me out more, I have kept achieving the sort of marks I can be very proud of. So far an ‘A-‘ and an ‘A+’ in the two assignments I’ve got back and consistent high marks in the weekly quizzes in our ‘Law’ paper. So I’m feeling like I am really achieving something other than ‘just’ being a ‘cancer patient’.
I ‘may’ have spent some time on facebook as well. (Guilty admission – getting slightly addicted to a new ‘hidden object’ game)
I’ve gone out and about doing other activities too. The latest of which was a ‘date night’ to the movies with OH to see ‘ Source Code’. Very good movie and I can recommend watching it if you liked ‘Inception’.
Sometimes what I write here will make out that my life is much more miserable than it actually is. That is partly because I use this blog to process things so that when I go out into the world I can do so with a smile on my face and a spring in my step. Which is what I will be doing as soon as I’ve published this post. 😀
