First of all I hope that everybody had a beautiful Christmas with their loved ones. We have received the most beautiful gift on the 26th of December. My nephew Xayvian.
As I am writing this I am sitting in the hospital watching my beautiful nephew whilst his mommy is taking some well deserved rest. I am realizing that it’s almost the end of 2018. It has been such a weird year. Summer was AWESOME!! Been to so many festivals with my friends and had so much fun.
I quit my job at the beginning of 2017 to try and find out what I wanted to do besides standing in front of the class teaching. After almost six months of still not knowing I took a job as a substitute because well bills needed to get paid and I wanted to do fun stuff. Whilst I was working that job I was trying to figure out what my other interests are so I could find a job in that field. I can not tell you how I have wrecked my brains trying to figure that one out. I have realized that the things I did like were not things I could pay my bills with immediately so when that school year was done I went back to my old job because they needed someone. I felt like such a failure cause here I was telling everybody that I am quitting this teaching life and here I was back at my old job. I have been back now for 4 months and I am desperately searching for something new. I DO NOT want to be teaching next year.
I am telling everybody I know that if they know about something to please let me know so I can apply for that job. I want to do more with social media, photography and writing. But because I am a teacher I have to think twice of what you post online. At least I do.
I am just rambling out this post but what I wanted to say was. I am making a list for next year with stuff that I want to achieve. I never make these New Year’s resolution because I know I suck at them but I am going to make an achievement list. I don’t need to start in January or anything. I just hope to have achieved 90% of this list in 2019.
My goals/ to do list.
- Read 30 books next year. I miss reading. I don’t know why I don’t do that so much anymore.
- Keep on going to the gym like I did this year but even better and lose the extra kg.
- Travel more.
- Publish the children’s book I have on my laptop since forever.
- Do more things out of my comfort zone.
- STOP OVERTHINKING!
- Start my new job out of the teaching world <—- this one will make me extra happy.
- Be the coolest aunt to my nephew Xayvian. <—- very important. 🙂 🙂
- Weekly post stuff on the blog and post frequently on our Instagram.
- Maybe even move abroad for a year to experience new things.
Anyway ramble is over. I just needed to get this of my chest. Now that I have really written these goals down I need to stick to them. So we are going to see how well I did by the end of next year.
Talk to ya soon!
