Sometimes life gets away from us all. Whilst sitting at my desk at school (yes I’m a real teacher now with a real desk) we forget the little things that once made us happy. Of course, I’m talking about my blog and my evident inability to continue to make consistent and meaningful posts.
Since January I have experienced many more fun filled things than I would have ever thought. I graduated my undergraduate degree in teaching and obtained a lovely job teaching at a Catholic Girls’ School in Inner City Brisbane. I began studying my Master of Education with a passion in identity as a teacher and sexual orientation and its apparent impact. I am lucky enough to have a partner whom I love dearly. Oh, and I continue to work towards my goal of presenting at national conference in September.
I was hoping to make a post with something insightful within it. However I think I’m stuck. My writing has failed to glitter and shimmer as it once did. I think this sort of writing comes and goes, the passion…or rather the feeling of it ‘just coming to you’ runs out quickly. As you are about to witness…
Me at the moment? Ugh. I spent a lot of my time at the moment exisiting. I think it’s important to realise that sometimes we need to just exist. I get stuck and sucked in. I say I’m going to undertake more exercise or eat better but it’s hard. Of course I don’t expect it to be easy. I just need to be committed. Funnily enough I think this is the thing that needs the most focus at the moment. Even when I feel shot and tired, I just need to pull my finger out and get on with it!
Pokemon Go? Yes! This is great and a wonderful thing.
Teaching? Yes! It’s an occupation, a vocation, a calling. (How corny?! …But it is true).
Perhaps I’ll come back and write more one day, something inspiring… not to others, I mean for future Amanda to read.
