I've spent the last two days immersed in linguistic jargon for my new Open University course.
Now I knew when I signed up for this course that it was going to be a challenge, because it is third year course and I am new to both English language studies and linguistics. But I am not the only student in that position and I do at least have a former academic background in modern languages and European literature.
Anyway, although it seemed daunting at first read, when I came to write up some notes this evening it all started to make some sense. Which is encouraging. I want to now start on next week's work, as I need to get ahead before half term, but the coming two days are going to be busy and I really need to actually do some writing!
Three notable things:
1. Course content details are up for the new level three creative writing course at the OU.
2. Receiving a late birthday card with a picture I love and have pinned on the board above my desk.
3. Doing a much needed backup of all my photos, music and files onto an external hard drive this morning.
