Fine Rain

Whilst sitting down in my living room and reflecting on week one, I felt prompted to look for a profound quotation to sum things up. Surely, looking over my books, a wiser man or woman than I could have started off this blog with a perfect slice of timeless wisdom? It is interesting then, that after a good 5 mins of looking though texts that are the pride and joy of my bookshelf, the most apt phrase which sprung to mind was not Plato or Neitzsche, nor Tolstoy or Keats, but that brilliant sage... Peter Kay:

"It's that fine rain that soaks you through!" ( about 6.25mins in).

Yes it is Peter, thanks.

Monday was the first raindrop, Tuesday a little more, but by mid week a quick reflection told me, that without me fully realising it, my mind was drenched with new information. There has been much to take in during week one, but the course has given me the wonderful impression that it is, simply, for me! A year of TA work confirmed it, but now the PGCE has started I am anxious to wade in ever further. Things will get tough this year, but I'm hoping the sense of vocation, alongside a calming drink or two with new friends (and those I've met so far are wonderful), I'll come out the other side the teacher I want to be. By that point I'll be underwater, but with the distinct advantage of having found the ability to swim.
