Tomorrow I begin. Registration and inductions, tour of campus and meetings with Unions. After that is a trip home and my primary school observation. I must admit, I love my new place so much I am extremely reluctant to leave it and go back to my parents’ house. I’ve only just got here and it is just so great!
My feelings are the same as they usually are the night before a new year at university, or a new job. Nervous and excited all at the same time. I have the usual panics, mainly that I won’t find the lecture theatre in time, that I’ll get lost, that the train will run late…. It’s all based on not getting there on time. This is one reason why I’ll be such a good teacher, I have a terror of being late – terminally early in fact!
