    Blue was actually a reference to my new username colour, and the promotion that goes with it. :proud:

    ...though I did prefer ST purple.

      I'm broken.
      Almost two weeks into my six week placement and... I'm hating it. I have cried most nights. I am forcing myself to write this message because I need people to see how I feel. I've been trying to find the energy to write this for week. I can't tell my mum because she will be so disappointed. Nearly a month ago I finally messaged my university counseling service and I'm still waiting on an appointment and might not get one because the only time I can go is in half term next week.

      I'm crying as I write this. I feel sick all the time. Sick from paralysing tiredness, and sick from the feelings of disappointment and shame that I am not enjoying what I'm doing and that I'm a failure. I feel very depressed and so low and worried all the time. I broke down when I was alone in the classroom today because my teacher asked if I wanted to do a three lesson progression in English on poems the week after half term, and I felt so hopeless. I don't have a clue. She printed me off some plans from the internet but it feels like cheating and reading someone else's work means nothing, it's just words, lots and lots of words.

      I spent 3 years working in a school before uni and really thought it was what I wanted to do. Now I'm here, in my first year, and I have lost all enthusiasm. I realised this a week into placement, and over the last few days I'm thinking that I don't even want to work with children anymore.
      I had my first whole lesson observation yesterday which actually went okay and I got good feedback, but it hasn't made me feel any different.

      I hate lesson planning. I'm **** at managing children. Everything makes me so stressed and all I want to do when I get home is chill out. But I can't, because I'm teaching the next day and have to spend all night preparing and worrying. And I'm only doing one lesson a day! I find it very hard to act out of my extremely 'passive' and gentle natural state. I'm not a leader. I've always been a sheep and I think I want to stay that way. I thought I'd find the extra work of teaching fine because I was going to live in a house on my own and I thought it would give me something to do in the evenings, but it doesn't work like that, I've found. I'm so exhausted in the evenings that I can barely move.

      I've been considering options ... from dropped out of uni after first year and applying to jobs instead, cleaning or TAing or retail.
      Or switching my course to a simple childcare one, perhaps study for the L3 ta course alongside, finishing uni, and then applying to TA jobs.
      Or sticking through this degree to the end and then not doing the QTS year.

      If I drop out of uni, I'm letting so many people down. My friends at the house I'm supposed to be sharing with, my mum, Chris, and most importantly myself. All the work I did to get here. The nearly £300 I asked my mum to spend on the Catholic certificate so that I could teach in a Catholic school/widen my options. Everything. I wanted a degree, I wanted the status of a teacher, I wanted to look after children as I knew I would personally never have my own. But I think I've changed my mind. I'm longing and longing and longing to just start a normal job that you go in, do, then come home and don't think about til the next day. Chris has said he won't let me visit him anymore if I drop out. He says I always take the easy way out. But I am so unhappy. I can't teach. I don't even know if I want to be a TA. I ****ing hate having responsibility. That's the truth. I want to be free and unworried and unstressed.

      I'm desperate to call my mum and talk about it but I CAN'T BEAR to break the news to her. I know she'd want to help me but I don't want to ruin her image of being successful. :cry: I wanted to impress her, I wanted to impress Chris, I wanted to impress everybody and feel proud of myself and my degree and my job. But I can't ignore my feelings. I am so unhappy.
      Uni aren't getting back to me with help and I can't tell my class teacher or tutors because I don't want them to judge me for not liking their profession.


      I need some life advice desperately. Or some divine intervention. If I could press a button to end my life, I would.
      I CAN'T LIVE THIS LIE! :bawling:

      Chuffed, I bought a nice TV for £1. It was on sale in a shop window that said TV: £1. Volume stuck on full and I thought 'I can't turn that down'.
