Open University: My Journey #2

I've been studying at the OU for just over a month now and I thought I'd do another update as so many of you wanted to read more. I hope I've inspired a few of you to get involved, and if you have any extra questions then feel free to comment or e-mail/tweet me.

A lot has happened in the past month. I went to my first 'day school' where I got to meet my tutor and some of the other students. Everyone was very friendly although many were older (only one was the same age as me) but I felt comfortable and I learned so much just by having a few discussions.

I've also handed in and received back my first assignment. I got 79% which I'm extremely happy with as I was worried that I wouldn't even pass (a pass is 40%). I know everyone says things like that but I genuinely thought I would as I didn't know how it would be marked but now I feel a bit confident for the next assignments. I'm starting the next one this weekend.

With Christmas coming, work, and the enjoyment of driving everywhere, I've found it a little difficult to keep up. I'm not miles behind, in fact I'm where I should be, but with Christmas coming, I would prefer to have got a lot more done.

PS. There  are still advertising spots available on my blog for January 2011. It will only cost £2, and I will also do a blog post on whoever is being advertised. You'll be placed high up on the right sidebar too. E-mail me at if you want to know more or want to definitely advertise!



  1. Well done getting 79% on your assignment! Glad it's going well :)
