As I work in the Education industry my life is governed by the school calendar. Term one is over and now it’s the school holidays. I get a holiday for two weeks which was not a moment too soon as I need a break from kids. I enjoy working with children but I have my limits as well. There are days where I resent their behaviour but I try to remember I was exactly the same at their age.
I mostly do day trips and hang out at home during holidays. So far, I went hiking (spent two hours terribly lost), shopping, watched The Lego Movie, went to a teaching conference, saw the new exhibits at the Queensland Museum and washed my family’s cars. I hope to watch some more movies next week, particularly the new Spider Man 2, Captain America 2, Sherman and Mr Peabody and Divergent.
I also hope to explore more of Queensland as I have still not seen it all. I don’t have any money to travel far so I plan to see lesser known museums, go out with my friends and go to any cultural event happening in the city.

I am still looking for a teaching job. So far I have an interview this Wednesday for a teaching position. It would be nice if I got it. There aren’t many jobs being advertised because it is the school holidays. I’ve been job hunting since last year and I think most of the positions are for early childhood teachers. I am not qualified to teach early childhood (ages 3-5) because I didn’t specialise in it. If I don’t get the new job, I’ll go ahead with further study to be an early childhood teacher. I try to keep in mind that it’s normal to have a lot of rejections before success.
