It’s only week 2 of the semester and everything is starting to speed up…. I am going to have to be careful not to overdo myself as I can definitely tell a major crash could occur….
Everything is good at the moment, thankfully! Although I wasn’t totally enthused to be back in the classroom, I find that I don’t mind it so far. The class of guys that I am teaching are generally good – though it is still definitely early days. Also, I was able to get an education class on literacy and English language learning. I taught my first one today and boy what a difference it is to teach content with students who are actually engaged! So, it might be a nice new challenge to return to my teaching roots…. 😉
Actually, I am still trying to ground myself without the pursuit of the PhD. I still do not regret stopping the studies, as I feel much more relaxed not having to worry about it. However, I am now finding myself considering an MBA or other possible courses I can/should take. I do want to keep to waiting until the new year before pursuing anything major, but it does tell me that I have an itch for something even if it is not the PhD itself – or maybe I should consider the EdD…. 😛 Anyway, something to think about.
In the meantime, I am keeping plenty busy with trying to find time to work on a re-launch of an old website, hanging out with M and friends, doing some side work here and there and staying relaxed and sane all at the same time!
So, everything will come along as it should with some moderation, deep breaths and smiles!
More to come,
