Howdy! It’s a slightly later edition of MFM only due to the fact that I was being extra productive today and you simply can’t get in the way of THAT. However it’s still Monday here, so I’ve made it. Just.
And it’s been a good day. I learned something about myself. Many MANY years have passed since I was school age so the daily practice of listening, taking notes and learning is uh, well shall we say, a little on the rusty side? But since I’ve started this TAFE course, I’ve discovered my brain really enjoys being pushed out of its comfort zone. Quite a lot, actually. And I GET it, I really understand what I’m reading and that has had the rather pleasant knock-on effect of making me feel somewhat intelligent! I mean, I KNOW I’m no dummy but it’s very nice to have validation from the solution section of the module you’re studying to see you got the answer right. (I’m studying bookkeeping so there is always a right answer… there are NO shades of grey in accounting!)
But now study for the day is done, dinner has been served and eaten and the Blokes Wot Live Here are now entertaining themselves (thank YOU, Fox Sports) so I’m in serious chill out mode, organising a post-dinner cup of tea and settling myself down to watch another riveting episode of The Walking Dead on my laptop (if you have not seen this show, do it NOW. Seriously brilliant television.)
I must give thanks to Son#2 for inspiring the song choice for MFM this week, not that he’ll realise it at the moment. The RugbyBoy is a huge music fan himself but it would be true to say that a lot of his favourite artists are ones I’m not particularly fussed about! However every now and then I’ll see a song on his iPod, choices I NEVER would have thought he’d be into. Today’s song is one of those. He tells me the category for this is ‘Road Trip Music’. And it kind of is. What do YOU think?
