Getting Back on Track

OK, I have given myself a talking to and need to get back on track.  Since the third year chat, it seems that one of the girls have made some headway in helping to bridge the gap between the satellite colleges. It's excellent news, especially for this years up-and-coming second years.  I am considering my options at the moment; I would like to think I can have a happier career creating rather than teaching, but would like the broadest possible spectrum. I believe that teaching is vocational - not sure it's my particular calling, however I do feel a kindred spirit with SENCO work.

I have three assignments to do - IL3 (a comparison between 19th c and 20th c work, using a piece from two separate authors - 1,000-2,000 words); SP3 (Forster's view/A Passage to India - 2,000-3,000 words); TW7 (Speech on something I am passionate about - 800-1,000 words, plus commentary - 700 words). I may at least start the speech on Saturday (depending on what I choose), or SP3.  I feel a little better now, just need to get on with it :-)
