However I don't feel eminently well-qualified for anything, not even for cycling down the road without crashing into things. I'm not even amazingly well-qualified at walking down the road without walking into things/people or falling over. I suppose I'm fairly well-qualified for sitting in front of the internet and not accidentally sending viruses to all my friends, but that doesn't take a lot of effort. Apparently I need more self-esteem. Or self-confidence. (Is that the same thing?)
Well, the reason I'm doing this course isn't so much to learn chemistry as to get more confidence that I know what I'm talking about, so hopefully it will be successful. And I'll figure out what I want to do a PhD on, and then I will apply for it. With plenty of time.
Now I have to deal with the Registry to find out how much the fees actually are (every document I've seen has had a different number on it, grrr) and talk to the Disabilities Office to sort out... whatever I need that I haven't already worked out that I need. And then I shall Get Educated.
