Post of The Month

Jellyelephant is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Abi,

Please don't be sorry. Have you ever heard of the phrase "You can't pour from an empty cup"? I feel like this applies here. You need to look after yourself before you can start caring for other people. I know you know all about self care so I won't go on, but try and practise it a little, the way you encourage others to. It's great that you have other skills too, I know music is one of your passions in life and hopefully by studying it that can help you get to where you want to be. Take all the time you need, you don't have to support people in SC all of the time - chat is there to support you too when you are going through difficult times.

Take care of yourself

          Hello Esther!

          It's wonderful you have joined the staff to help out, learning as you go along. Will you be a chat mod or a forum mod? Just curious. Anyway, it's cool you've joined and I hope you'll have fun with us.

          Wishing you all the best,

          Belle

                  Hey Esther

                  My aunt-mum Wendi is a historian and asks are you going to continue in your study and go for a PhD? She is interested in what subject of history you studied and wants also to know if you intend teaching. Listening to Wendi lecturing at a university recently made me so lit that to her delight I'll be doing English history. It's a super subject.

                  All the best and congratulations on your internship!

I have considered teaching it is one option of mine , also I am glad that you really enjoyed the lecture and will study history it is so interesting. Thank you so much if you need any advice or tips feel free to make a thread and I will comment when I can.

                      Hello Esther

                      Thank you for replying.

                      Aunty who is sitting with me says if you feel a calling to teach, then see if you can apply for funding at your chosen university for admission, eg. Sheffield University that currently has 100+ scholarships available, though there are many other universities open at this time of the year. Having achieved your Masters, then you could apply for government funding in teacher training, depending of course which political government is in power by then. Aunty says your studies would take a very long time, but consider the high reward of getting the highest possible qualification. She has degrees in Neo-Classical Italian Art and English History; the Tudor Period in addition to the Recency Period. Her education was at Oxford, at Bart's and another university nearer to us. During the process of aunty's PhD studies she got to know art historian and television presenter Andrew Graham-Dixon. He is such an eloquent and highly knowledgable man. http://www.andrewgrahamdixon.com/index.html Have you see his TV progs lately, with Giorgio Locatelli.


                      I've accompanied aunty to several of her lectures, and recently decided to take up history since I am most fortunate to have her teach me. What an opportunity, which I must take as soon as I get well again. My aunt is now my mum, and I'm so proud that she's taken me on. And when well again, I will do it because the fuse of my fascination is already well lit.
