My life lately…what’s the happs?

Spread the love

I feel like I’ve not written anything on here for a long time. I’ve had a couple of contributor posts, but where have my thoughts gone? So, I thought I really need to update you all and tell you a bit about my life over the 8 months.

To be completely frank with all of you, it’s been a bit of an odd, stressful, not-fun year.

My emotions have been up and down, my minds been going cray-cray and I just haven’t been sure what I’m doing with my life. I needed a complete break from my blog, and so, despite posting a few sporadic posts, I decided to focus on other things. I had trouble sleeping and my doctor prescribed me zopiclone and melatonin.

The start of the year was fine, I went on a lovely holiday to Myanmar (shameless plug here – check this post out to see my highlights of the holiday), and it all went downhill after that. Work was tough, and I just didn’t feel very happy. I didn’t feel excited about my work, which for me was quite a big deal. As a teacher, I feel like you need to love your job.

I booked a holiday to Japan for in July this year, which was just the escape I needed, and that really sorted out in my head what I was going to do. Or so I thought.

Finally, before my school broke up for a two-week term break I finally made up my mind.

The change in my state of mind was pretty much instantaneous, and I just felt so much relief. I didn’t feel this impending sense of doom hanging over me every day. Now, I have 6 weeks left until Summer break and I am just so excited about my life next year, and the changes I am going to implement.

After making the change I can finally say that I have come out of the slump I was in. There are still days when I struggle to get out of bed. However, I am definitely more motivated to get to work and finish up the year!

So, to conclude, I have decided to take my life back. Thank you very much!

 

And because I posted that photo, I really need to actually post the video. This was one of my favourite episodes of Glee!

And, completely off topic, how much do you love Cillian Murphy?

There’s just something about him that’s so sexy.

      Thank you! I wasn’t sure whether to publish it, but I’m glad I did! It’s hard writing about the negatives, and but I think it’s good and a weight off my shoulders! All the best to you for the rest of the year, and for the New Year too!
