Recently I've realised that the line between work and life is blurring more and more. I read a blog earlier (and I'm sorry, I can't remember who by) that said that it's not work and life that we are balancing, but work and home. I think that's very true. My work is a big part of my life, and is becoming increasingly more of a part of my spare time too. This isn't some sob story about the amount of work I bring home though, in fact I'm actually quite pleased with the 'balance' I have established there.
This is merely a reflection on how much time I am spending on education related activities in my leisure time. It's been a long time now that I've been on Twitter and writing my blog, and that's where this all began. Next came the start of attending events like ResearchEd and then the MA Education. Of late these sorts of things have just grown and grown. This half term I'll hopefully be going to the Chartered College London event and then at Easter I have ResearchEd English and MFL and also an MFL event in Cambridge lined up. I think some of my colleagues think I'm a bit nuts, but I can't wait. I'm becoming one of those people that reads things and wants to share ideas all the time (I hope I'm not too annoying...). My amazon wishlist is full of education books and I'm trying to read more than I usually do.
I think I might be becoming a bit of an education geek, and I love it!
