New beginings

It’s been a  very long time since I wrote a post. I don’t really know what happened here and as with everything there are a few possible reasons/excuses I could use. The usual laziness combined with busy schedule, or lack of interest in anything to name but a few. Today I treated myself to a brand new laptop. To be fair I did need one because my old one has been now permanently used by my daughter; despite the fact she has a tablet also. But never mind, yesterday happened to be my first official day with new module with Open University, this time far away from creative writing. For next seven months I will be exploring the Worlds of English, its history, rots, changes and challenges, linguistics, grammar… The books arrived about two weeks ago and just from a fleeting look I can tell it is exciting and scary at the same time. As you may know English is not my first language and I still fight with it from time to time, much to amusement of my English friends. I don’t mind people telling me about any mistakes I make. On the contrary, I’d rather know and correct myself than look happy and totally oblivious (and I’m sure stupid :-)).

So hopefully for the next seven months I will be able to reflect on my studies, English itself, sometimes I might moan, sometimes I might laugh. But most importantly I hope I will be able to write again and not only because I have to but also for pleasure.

Yours (forever coming and going) Niina
