Undergraduate in History and just finished a Masters in Strategic Studies and Management, trying to get into the work of work which isn't paid at living wage by the hour.
Returning to University
Like a lot of students, when I am not at university I try to pick up as much paid work as possible. This, however, can have seriously annoying consequences and, despite going into my final year where I have both a 100% exam (so not looking forward to that) and a dissertation to write, I clearly haven't learned from previous years.
The Rewards of Teaching
Rewards of Teaching This time last year, the vet recommended that, to help with the pony’s EMS, exercise would be a great idea. While that was great in theory, in practice not so much. The pony, having been retired for the better part of five years, and I had definitely outgrown him as he is 14.1hh, and I now ride a 16.1hh.
'So, You Own an Ex-Racehorse?'
When owning an ex-racehorse, you put up with a lot—and it's not all to do with the horse. A lot of the time, it comes from people that cannot understand why anyone would decide to buy an ex-racer and retrain it for other disciplines such as dressage, showjumping or even as a happy hacker. Although, they never say this outright, it can be heard in the subtext of the questions they ask you.
