Keeping up with my studies - An A-Z post

A little departure from the authors and works that have so far been the topics of my A-Z challenge today (mostly because I don't have an author or a book beginning with K!).

It's been great doing this challenge, it's given me the chance to revise some of the things I studied ages ago and keep the ideas surrounding them fresh in my mind.

At times since the start of the course last October, I have found it difficult to find the time to study and read properly and it can be hard to keep the enthusiasm going.

I find it particularly tough around assignment due dates as all my efforts are going into the essay and the stories relating to it, which means I fall behind a little with the rest of the reading.

The exam itself is only two months tomorrow (eek!) and I've now started to worry about revision strategies. I need to start going over the topics again from the early part of the course as well as finishing off the last few texts and assignments.

The next few weeks are going to be hectic, and I hope that if I can't keep strictly on track I can at least hang on to the shirt tails of everyone else flying away.

This is like the last stretch now though, I can see the end I when I get there I have the Game of Thrones books waiting for me.

A to Z Challenge [2013]


This post is part of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. To get involved and check out other blogs taking part just click here. You won't be disappointed!



  1. Sounds like you're getting close. Good luck with it!

  2. Hello from A to Z. Good luck with school. My sister lent me her copy of Game of Thrones recently, and I can't wait to dive into it.

  3. I know how you feel about the workload in the run up to TMA time. I inevitably rush through stuff so I'm doing more in the week leading up to the TMA, then give myself a break the week afterwards, then have to get all caught up the week after that!

    Sounds like you're on top of it all and I'm finding your blog posts useful for sort of revision of how much we've covered.

    It's also funny that you've got Game of Thrones as your reward for this course; my husband bought me the first five books for my Kindle last year when I finished that course. ;-)
