I'm feeling thoughtful. How're you?
Been painting the 3rd bedroom all weekend, but it's going to be my 'amp room' and i can move my cds, hi fi, guitars amps and pedals in there across from the flat tomorrow.
Just cooked dinner for my gf and her sister then had an after dinner guitar hero session followed by mint ice cream. Winner!
What are you thoughtful about?
I dunno, I'm meant to be writing a report about France so far, and I'm getting nostalgic about my time in Exeter, and then thinking about being back there, and changing my mind about my career, and basically thinking about the past and future and trying to escape the present...
It can be weird moving places and then thinking about where you used to live. I've been up here almost a year now and it still doesn't seem like long ago I was down south.
But I'm not sure I want to teach for the rest of my life, and there's funding it, and seeing my mum marking VERY average work this eve and she teaches secondary... I don't know, so now I'm back to square one not knowing where I'm going.
Thankfully I am going back to Exeter, but some of my best friends won't be there, and neither will tommyroxx...
AND IT SMELLS GOOD
ive been turning over what i want from life all day too. I think its partly cos everyone else i know seems to be starting new lives and im sitting here going errrrr hmmmm what do i want
an 'amp room' i mean ;)
Don't graduate til 2010 so don't really need to be worrying about it now... But quite liked knowing, or at least thinking I knew, what i wanted to do.
What're you thinking of?
dam you got ages, hardly anyone you know will actually go on to do what they expect right now too.
Honest response: i dont know where i want to live next and what i want to do. Im lucky to be in a position to have potential to do whatever i want for a while (year or 2 even) but i seemed to have developed this fear of taking big steps incase i end up unhappy and alone.
Just think, what's the worst that can happen, and bite the bullet... Maybe putting a back up plan in place first though ;)
it seems like a quite a pivitol moment like theres opportunites and if i dont catch them in the right order i'll end up stuck.
I think the kick is no one else seems to be at this cross roads with me, so i feel quite alone even the process of deciding.
My sisters a teacher and it definatly has its pros, one of the major cons for me thou is i find it forces people to grow up fast. eg 20s teachers seem over 30 cos they have to act so responsible all the time.
Although at least teaching GSCE languages they would have chosen to take it [My mum teaches English so they do it whether they want to or not]
The holidays appeal, what with family life and so on, but as a lifelong career... So thinking about a graduate program or somethign different for a few years before going into teaching perhaps...
Yeah I can see why it'd be tough being the only one having to make decisions like that, but just go with your gut instinct I guess, it's all you can do... Every opportunity will lead somewhere, I guess...
get a job local, rent a bunglaow to make a new album in, meet a hot girl then brake her heart as i leave for a year abroad 6 months LA, 6 months Japan ( hopefully she'd come with me thou)
the probs with the holidays is going abroad costs you twice as much at those times.
as in completely in conditioner. It looks wet but feels dry its horrific.
