バラが咲いた、訪問者と能力 Roses in full bloom, visitors and my academic ability.

昨日、長女がオーストラリアに帰りました。ダーリン、両親+長女の訪問で嬉しかった。真面目な私はやはり勉強とお付き合いの両立は難しかったです。

しかし、皆さんは自立していてガイドの必要はゼロでした。本当に有難いです!

一週間前にダーリンが買ってくれたバラは未だこのように綺麗に咲いています。

大学院に入って思った事・・・・

私は一番年上で、体力的にキツイけど能力的に若い学生に負けないことが分かりました。授業中に活発な議論に入ると人生経験の豊富の私と若い学生多少意見が違うけど学生同士として皆さんが受けれて下さり本当に嬉しいです。日々の訓練を通して頭を使う大切さが分かります。来週と再来週は試験と大きい課題提出が迫っています。

Yesterday daughter N went home. In the past week I had JM, parents and daughter visiting. I do find it hard balancing study and socialising but it was great seeing them. They were all wonderful guests, totally independent. That was very much appreciated.

The beautiful roses JM bought me a week ago are still in bloom……

On becoming a graduate student-

I am definitely the oldest student, physically I find it demanding but I think my intellectual ability is no different to my younger peers. In heated discussions in class I invariably differ in opinion to my younger peers , but they treat me with kindness as a fellow student which is wonderful. My experiences going back to study have taught me that you need to” kick start the old brain”.

For the next two weeks I have exams and papers to hand in…wish me luck!
