Welcome to 2020! We're already over a week in and I'm starting to think about the year ahead. I'm not into New Years resolutions, because they rarely stick around for more than a couple of days into the new year. However, I did want to find some images that I hoped would represent my … Continue reading 2020 in pictures
OU update 🙂
So, this week I took the decision to enrol onto my next module, DE100 – Investigating Psychology. This module is a Level 1 introductory module to Psychology and I can’t tell you how pleased and excited I am to finally know that I’m going to be studying the topic I originally signed up for.
