I cannot believe it’s October already! Partly because I’ve been crazy busy, but partly because we’ve been having really unseasonably warm weather in London! I’ve only just dig my cardigans out and haven’t had a chance to wear a coat or scarf! Very un-Autumnly.

For the last month I’ve been getting to grips with my PGCE, studying hard, panicking about all the work ahead and trying to get myself organised. Organisation is not a strong point of mine! But as we go through the course we have to compile huge folders with very specific work from specific points of the year so I need  to get on top of it. I’m excited though because I’m starting my first school placement on Monday.

Other than uni October is looking less busy than September for me. We have a few things planned but I’m trying to keep my diary as free as possible at weekends in anticipation for all the lesson plans I’ll have to do! I can’t wait to start being a teacher though. It’s been a long road to this point but I really feel like I’ve found what I’m supposed to do.

Something which is coming up in half term which is exciting is my graduation ceremony for my undergrad degree from my previous university! I’m graduating in the Old Royal Naval Chapel which is so beautiful it’s such an honour. I can’t wait!

My goals for this month are:

💜 Get as organised as possible! Start building my folders in the right order and get on top of work we have already been set.

💜 Do my absolute best on placement.

💜 DO NOT give up on the gym no matter how busy or tired I am and continue to work out 4 times per week. No excuses.

💜 Continue to blog when I can – it may seem like extra work but I find it therapeutic to get my thoughts on paper.

💜 Make time for myself and Paul to do fun things and not focus and stress about workload all the time.

💜 Graduate looking fabulous for all the pictures!

💜 Have a super relaxing half term!

What about you? What have you got planned for October?
