I just had my first day of Uni and now everything's suddenly sinking in: My whole world is about to change.
That may sound a bit melodramatic, but it's true. I've been waiting tables since I was 16 so that's nearly half my life and it's all I've known. Now, after just listening to a couple of lectures, I've realised just what I'm getting myself into. In just over ten weeks I'll actually be in a high school. I'll be standing in some English classroom, probably trying to figure out what the Hell I'm supposed to be doing.
I know that's required for being a teacher, but I never imagined I'll actually have to do a prac in a real classroom in my first year.
As humans, do we try to stick with things we know? When you go to a restaurant or even to get takeaway are you always getting the same things, or do you like to try different things? Is it the same with experiences? Do you feel nervous or excited about the prospect of beginning a new journey?
