It's becoming clear to me that I am indeed my own worst enemy. I'm not revising for my exam as diligently as I should be doing and I am messing about in Blogland a bit too much. There are now 20 days to go before I sit in last year's large hotel room in Paris with four other examinees and two invigilators. It is just like school exams - the paper face down on the desk, a huge clock showing the three hours counting down, a heart racing like thunder and waiting to hear those words - when I say NOW then please turn over the paper and begin your examination. That is after we have produced our passports to prove that we are indeed who we say we are.
Now I really need all my concentration to cram a lot of stuff inside my brain. I've not got a very good memory for facts and quotes. I've done very well with my essay marks - I'm still awaiting the final one but initial feedback from my tutor said it was very good indeed (her exact words), so I'm confident it will be around the low to mid-80 percentile. However, to get a good end of course overall result, my exam must be good. I've decided not to return here until June 16th when this will all be done and dusted.
I will miss you and your blogs and hope to catch up on all your activities when I return. Of course my comeback post will be huge so it's best you have a little rest from me in the meantime.
