So… I quit my job today…


Actually, it went well. A boss who argues with you for leaving when you want a career change would have to be… well, the stereotypical narcissistic boss. I have had one (well, two, but they were married so…) of those in the past and thankfully, my current boss isn’t like that.


I mean, you can’t be sure of these things until they come to pass, right?

And as Homer Simpson said, “Now, to begin working in paradise.

I handed in my four weeks’ notice (standard for a fly-in, fly-out worker) so I will NOT be working in paradise just yet. I will, however, get a lovely summer break before university starts in February, which I am absolutely stoked about. I will get at least a SOLID MONTH of writing and blogging! How could I not love that?

And then… and then…

*takes deep breath*

I will foray into entirely new territory! Back at uni! Studying! Education! Come May, I will be in a high school classroom undergoing my first practical teaching lessons!

I shall rise to TEACH SCIENCE!!!

I hope I get a good placement, and a good mentor.

I am scared and excited.

    • I hope I enjoy it. Speaking to people who are teachers themselves, they have a real passion for their job. A calling, like you said. I just hope I get that passion too. I’m looking forward to it, so best foot forwards 🙂 thanks so much for your comments!

  1. So….I take an accidental blogging hiatus due to 20,000 essays due for school, and this is what my first scrolling through posts of yours lands on! Whaaaa??? I am so out of the loop! This is such a great adventure you are embarking on! It is 1 a.m. here and I have a final exam in the morning, so I am off to bed, but tomorrow I am going to spend some quality Marigold blog time and catch up.
    I am so happy for you! Way to go after what you want, girl!
    I want to teach high school (possibly college) English, by the way. I am hoping to start substitute teaching in January and then find a position in the fall! Woohoo us! 😀

    • Wow, that’s awesome Shelby! You know, I don’t think I ever asked what you were studying at college, but I figured it was something important!
      Good luck with your exam! Hope you have some good news when you’re back blogging 😀
