My, what a long time since I last wrote a post!
Maybe I should consider making that my catchphrase as I utter it so much.
I’m not sure I can say that a lot has happened since my last post but let’s just say everything has got a little intense. For those of you that don’t know, in September I will be starting a teaching job through Teach First and to say I’m excited would be a huge understatement. I simply cannot wait to get in the classroom and teach English. Maybe in a month I will be saying the exact opposite, having had five breakdowns and screamed at 10.5 students, but at the moment I’m excited and for the first time in a really long time I feel like I’m working towards something I actually care about. For five weeks over July and August, I have been training for September and made some fantastic friends as well as learning some amazing techniques that I can’t wait to use in the classroom. For the last week, I have been in Seefel, Tirol. I had the opportunity to explore mountains and see stunning classes and be chased by killer cows (but tht’s a story for another day!). I ate far too much food and became far too relaxed and, now that real life has started, it’s a struggle to get back to the swing of things. But, overall, everything sounds alright?
Of course, with the ups there are also the stresses and the strains of everyday existance. Now, in the short weeks before school starts I need to find somewhere to live, deal with the massive expenses that accompanies that, as well as writing (you guessed it) that dissertation I never shut up about. But overall, I can’t complain. I’ve got great things lined up in front of me and things are (slowly) moving forward.
Which brings me back to my little corner of the internet. Like usual, I can’t promise regular posts, at least not for a little while. Life is in choas as I try to organise it and so writing my thoughts, feelings, and recent reads on the internet doesn’t quite take priority. But I am working on it. As soon as choas quietens down a little bit, I want to get back to blogging, and about everything: books, teaching, life. I want to talk about it all.
So, yes. It’s good to be back.
Until next time,
