The final push

I have approximately a month of university left. A very, very scary prospect.

Before I forget – last semester I wrote a dissertation about the impact Tourette syndrome can have on educational attainment, which was interesting to research and write! I will share the results from this and the possible implications these can have soon, but I simply don’t have the time to write about it right now!

This semester is all about drama. I am directing a short play based on the book The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks which has been a really enjoyable experience (although it is testing my organisational skills!).

I am also going to be playing Dorothy in our university production of The Wizard of Oz. This is literally a dream come true for me. I never thought I would truly be able to tread the boards in a blue gingham dress with ruby slippers…but that’s what I will be doing in under three weeks time!

I feel lucky to be playing this role now, but a few years ago I would have thought it would be completely impossible for me to. But TS has not been a barrier to me achieving my goals and reaching my dreams! I have said things along these lines so many times before, and although I always tank I truly mean it, there is always a voice in my head to say the contrary. However, that little voice is now fading, and hopefully soon it will be gone for good!
