|I managed to get out for a walk one day and took this photo of the March afternoon sky.|
I thought it would be more difficult to get a new job than what it turned out to be. I took the first job that was offered to me because I couldn't believe my luck. I was rung up on a wednesday and started work on the following Monday, so all descision were made really quickly.
In my previous job I was full of energy and just loved the dynamics of working with a very special group of students and their families. I can't really remember how I felt at the beginning of that project, though. Perhaps I was just as exhausted as I feel now. New students, new colleagues, new subjects even - it takes its toll. There is so much to get your head around and everything else in life just takes second place.
I am trying to take this weekend off and not think to much about work, even if I know I have to spend some time on Sunday afternoon prepairing for the week ahead.
I have a temporary position at the moment and I am teaching subjects that are not really "mine". This experience of a different kind of dynamic and also the feeling of being able to cope with it, has given me some food for thought. What am I going to do in the future? Maybe I can take it all a step further in my middle age, but still with two decades of working life left.
With all this said I also have to say that I am enjoying the new experience. I realise that I can do it, so maybe I can do other stuff as well?
