I have just undertaken the task of communicating to my family (in the only way I know how, e-mail*) that I don't want to study to be a teacher any more. I have nothing against being a teacher, in fact I think I would be pretty good at it, BUT studying it and failing to remember any of it has convinced me that I can't actually achieve the qualifications needed for it.
I always think "If I won a million dollars, right now, what would I do?" and when studying for my English Degree the answer was always "I would finish my degree then go traveling.", but right now, doing the teaching diploma my reply is "I would quit this course without a second thought." What is the relevance of that tidbit? It shows where my priorities are, and I don't see the value in studying something that you have no interest or skill in.
So I'm quitting. It's just dealing with the fallout of that decision that will be fun tomorrow.
*yes I live with some of them, and we even communicate by MSN when in parallel rooms sometimes - that's how
