Right, it's final. I have enrolled in the 'Cert IV Residential Drafting' Course at TAFE. One has to start somewhere. Firstly I have elected to complete the subject 'Complex Mathematical Concepts For Building and Construction'.... my choice.... after all, it's been a long 27 years since I did anything remotely resembling mathematics... except for some stats at Uni in my science degree, 24 years ago!
I am dying for this knowledge base. That's a good sign isn't it?! I think I am on the right path to where I want to go. Where do I want to go? I want to design houses. I want to do my own working drawings! I want to know all about construction technology, materials and building codes. I want to know what's going on on site. I love this stuff. I need this knowledge.
So I will start at the bottom step. I am slightly, very excited about this. I haven't studied for a while. My last attempt was a few Corporate Finance, Accounting subjects in an MBA, goodness!.. seven years ago now, when I was 8 months pregnant! I loved it at the time but just for the challenge I think, not the content, ...blah... it just wasn't for me, I was still searching. Now I know what I want to do, so I'm gonna do it. Life is short. Just. Do. It. (mantra courtesy of Nike!)
PS Very excited about getting the sloping desk thingy and the drawing implement thingys too!.... and soon I'll even know what to call them!
