…but I’m sick.
I not only have infected eczema, but I also officially have a cold and am just generally overwhelmed by life at the moment. Everything is just seriously sucking right now. And though I have an unconditional offer to the University of Sussex in 2012 to study Biology, I’m starting to think I should give up on that dream.
My major achievement of the day is sorting out my EOPII (Physical) folder into a more logical order, based on topic rather than week. Well done, me.
Well, yesterday was my last day of lectures/seminars until after placement, when I come back for two weeks to prepare for my next placement in September. It was also the deadline day for my critical appraisal, which was supposed to be in by noon.
So what does my door decided to do?
NOT UNLOCK. I even tried my flatmates’ keys.
Eventually, at around 11, after jiggling the handle, I broke free from the flat and ran up the road. While I managed to hand in my assignment on time, I missed my two lectures, including a mandatory one on Child Safeguarding. Luckily, it was recorded just in case, and I can watch it online…this weekend when I’m free from coursework.
…and that caffeine didn’t have the magical ability to put me to sleep.
The next 24 hours look like this:
Now – 9am: finish critical appraisal
9:30am-12pm: EOPII lectures
1pm-4pm: EOPI seminar
I should be eating and working, but I didn’t want to miss a day of PostADay2011…
If I have not completed the following by tonight, I will be very disappointed with myself.
- Read article.
- Appraise article.
- Write first draft.
- Become almighty expert on cerebral palsy, seating devices and outcome measures.

This may not exactly be a rant, but I need to complete a few “key objectives” for tomorrow’s EOPII seminar on position and mobility for children with physical disabilities. The pre-reading was this sub-module from a Northern Arizona University course, Positioning and Mobility, and all answers are in the material. I take no credit for this information; I am merely regurgitating it to facilitate its absorption into my memory “frames” [see OT Rant #1].
