Last night I met up with a former colleague who was having leaving drinks and he noted that I had become somewhat quiet on here and Twitter, so I thought I should put pen to paper so to speak and provide an update of sorts.
The reason for my silence is purely time, along with my day job and family commitments, I am also currently studying for a degree with the Open University (not the kind of OU I am used to dealing with though). A degree is always something I felt I was capable of, but when I was younger never had the opportunity to do. The degree I am doing is a BSc (Honours) Computing and IT. I am actually amazed how much of the first module (My digital life) I already know and understand but I think transitioning my business knowledge, approach and experience into academic writing and process is where I will find it a challenge, but this is where my tutor Michelle will become invaluable.
I am at the stage of my career where I don’t need to do this degree for anything beyond personal accomplishment, but in the future when asked “What’s my degree in?” I can reply with an honest answer rather than changing the subject or feigning deafness.
As my studies progresses I will update this blog as I document my journey into the unknown.
