A fresher?

I'm a student... 'cos I'm a first year student, I'm a "fresher".

I'm studying Social Sciences with Sociology at the Open University. First module starts in a few weeks. Badly timed, that, 'cos I'm also getting married, going on honeymoon and moving house. I'm sure I can fit in some studying, too.

Anyway... I feel kind-of overexperienced to be doing an "Introduction to the Social Sciences" module... the pre-prep stuff they sent me was to do with quoting people, reading texts critically, and all kinds of other Scholar 101 things that I think I know rather well...

Also, as a third of my library can be applied to the social sciences, hopefully I can produce some well-researched and referenced texts for them... I've got to ask my tutor what their rules are quoting yourself in your own essays. I don't want to be done for plagiarism when it's my text in the first place! Might have to reword my own words in order to avoid copycatting myself!

Hi Vexen,

It's been a while since I have spoken to you. I think it great you decided to study social sciences. Your experience can help improve society as a whole, only if you decide to go that far with it though. The introduction to Social Sciences class might surprise you even with all your experience because there is always something we overlook, and we don't notice until someone tells us.

Good luck at school

On getting married.
