At the Threshold

31 Dec

Tonight we say farewell, 2013…and hello 2014. It’s been a funny old year, hasn’t it?

The Good

I write this sitting next to my boyfriend of 7 1/2 years as he plays Pokemon emulator on his macbook. In August we finally took the plunge and got a place together. It’s small but pretty much ideal. I am incredibly lucky to have his support in everything I do. It has been a time of transition for both of us because he has just finished his PhD (yes, he’s very brainy) and is gradually moving into the world of work…

The Bad

As of midnight tonight I will no longer be an employee of my former school, and on January 6th I start at my new one. You will probably have gathered that work has been a big black cloud for me this year, mostly because of certain outside forces determined to crush the soul out of the education system. Yes, it’s been a dark time. But there is light at the end of the tunnel – as they say.

The Future

So, a new job, and a new vision. My new year’s resolution for as long as I can remember has been to write more – but this time I feel hopeful that I will make it happen. 

Onwards!
