Life. Busy of late...

I am sitting at my desk freezing. It is so, so, so cold here where I am! It's friday (thank God!) and I am psyched about the weekend. I have been incredibly busy of late (I know, you've probably read the same sentence on 10 other blogs today right?) and exhausted. After my busy work day, I can barely manage making dinner and moving from the couch to bed. Full time work must get easier than this right? I hate to think that half the world is walking around this tired. Despite the cold and the exhaustion, I am really enjoying my last prac! It has been challenging but also loads of fun and most of the staff are being very friendly and welcoming. There always seems to be a couple that look down on prac teachers, but I try not to let it bother me.
I am teaching outside of my subject areas this time, which has been interesting! Next week I take on an art class which thrills me no end. I am going to run a unit about graphic design and Photoshop, which you guys know I am obsessed with.
This 7 weeks is really important to me for so many reasons, but mainly because at the end of it I can get some teaching work and finally (FINALLY) make some money. Right now, money means LONDON so I can't wait to start working towards leaving the country in 6 (!!) months. It has also been a huge challenge for me and my anxiety. The school I am at is at the top of a very narrow and winding road that has always terrified me, even with someone else driving. Having to be up here 5 days a week for 7 weeks meant that I really had to just get over the fear. I got a lift for the first week or so, and am now driving myself! It wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be, and it feels awesome to be able to conquer my own mountain.

I suppose I better go and get some work done, or maybe find some sun and defrost my toes!

  1. I am pretty exhausted too. I feel like I'm getting old. LOL

    I am so proud of you. Saving money is so hard. I have a hard time saving. I am the WORST person. I'm so excited for your big move. I can't believe it's so soon. Don't worry, it's normal to feel scared. Honestly, if you weren't scared, I would be nervous for you. You will do fine and if it doesn't work out...well, at least you tried, right? It's better to regret the things you have DONE then to regret all the things you haven't done.

  2. Ooo, congratulations on conquering a literal mountain (or fear of it) and neato on teaching an art class! I'm also saving like mad (though not for anything as thrilling as a move to London)- best of luck to both of us. :)
