I have decided to cram like a nutter and sit the exam next month for 2 reasons
1 - didn't want to watch junior colleagues do it before me
2 - might be quitting in september to go back to college, and if you leave the company within a certain period after the exam you have to pay back the exam costs.
So, to aid this, I am taking next week off work, little bit of hiking, some baking, some video games and a lot of study are on the horizon. But that means I need to work doubly hard the remainder of this week so that I can clear my backlog before going away, which boils down to the fact I should go do some work!
Also, I need to arrange some days in a local high school to experience kids of high school age before I apply to teaching college. Erk, teenagers, hoodies, argumentativeness, general big unfun, but if I want to make a difference, I have to start somewhere.
