Well, that was a long while!
I have now finished my teacher training year and appear to have passed everything (hoorah!) But, in true me-style, it looks like I’m going to be training all over again next year – this time, I’ll be being paid for it though!
So another stressful year on the way but currently, I’m lazing about in the summer holidays. I’m off abroad soon, but my recent time has been a mixture of personal projects and (likely excessive) video-gaming.
The negative side here is that it does highlight loneliness. Would I mind if I had a significant other to give me a walloping kick up the backside to go outside and do something? No! That would be time well spent. It will come as a surprise to no-one that this extra time has also meant more social media time… Translated: more baby pics, engagements, weddings and relationships than you can shake a tree at.
I’ve also found that recently my attitude towards online dating has soured; not because of horror stories, but rather due to the complete absence of any stories. So, in effect I’m setting up my own vicious circle of doom where I impede my own slim chances with a starting attitude – huzzah! Maybe a break away from this country will help change this?
On that note, I have a friend based in the country I will be visiting. They have recently mentioned a friend who is apparently “my type” and struggles finding the right sort of men where she is… Could it be something? Could it be nothing? We’ll have to see! I hope to check in again before the next school year starts – cheerio!
