As I settle down in front of my laptop, my mind wanders back to the last time I studied, almost 15 years ago. I had an unreliable internet connection, at best, and the majority of my study texts came from a physical book. Now, here I sit, developing a blog in which to share my thoughts, and setting up all the software required to allow me to ‘chat’ with others in my class. The world is a vastly different place now and I am looking forward to every minute of this journey. So here’s to new beginnings!
