Life out of the classroom is a restricted one
i struggle with being tied to a desk
where is the fresh air I crave?
When do I get to think outside the box and not just follow the process?
Yes I am the most productive but what does that mean.
If I continue not to use my brain will it waste away?
Finally a seven hour day.
But what is the point when I am bored after just 3 hours.
How long can I last?
Time will tell
That is what I will be doing come July. I will be giving up teaching without the backing of many people in my life.
Maybe I am naive. Maybe I am foolish. But I know teaching isn’t for me – at least for now.
I can’t just try one job and not explore the job market is out there. Yes I have a mortgage to pay so I cannot be silly about things. But you only live once and I have to make the most of my life. I will be planning my future over the next few weeks.
I am taking a massive leap of faith. Let’s hope the parachute opens!
Since owning a place since April but still being trapped at home the time has eventually come: I have moved out.
Living alone is it all it is cracked up to be? Finally free from the parents I thought I would be overjoyed. I guess in a way, I am. But it will take a while getting used the them not being around. Living in a home to the whole of my life with my family surrounding me has been a bit of a luxury. Now I am alone in a half completed flat with no money – what an interesting adventure.
Of course I will miss my parents and I will continue to feel slightly aggravated when I come round. But this is it. At 25 I am in a privileged position to own my own flat.
One major thing I need to get used to is the noises made from the lovely couple upstairs. But once I recognise them all I am sure I will be less jumpy!
