Latest Update

Last Saturday I finished my application.  This Saturday (today for me here) I finished my Health History, stated my preference for job location (worldwide) and job types, and did a Soft Skills survey.  All that's left now is to wait and see if I get an interview and what comes about from said interview.  Wish me luck!

What all has been happening

Since I stopped updating my old blog, I'll give a little bit of background.  After going to Florida, I decided that I wanted to make a career change, so I came back to Arizona and went into Education.  I fell right into it.  I got back on a Friday, hung out with a friend over the weekend, started looking for jobs on Monday, started applying on Tuesday, got a call three hours later for an interview the next day, went to the interview and was hired on the spot, and started the next day.  I became an Instructional Aide and did that for a while, then they also asked me to become a part-time teacher on the evening shift, so I had some long days for a while.  Now that we're in summer school, I've been the right hand for the assistant principal (who is heading up summer school) and I've been teaching some students, managing others, a little bit of everything.  During the month of July I will be assisting our graduation adviser in getting everything ready for the next school year, but on the 27th of July I will leave that role and become the new Science Teacher.  I will be teaching Chemistry and Physics, Biology, as well as Earth and Space.  I'm also hoping to teach some of the more advanced computer science courses since I'm the most qualified that they have to teach those, with my background and experiences and all that.

So, that in itself seems like a bit of an adventure in and of itself, but it's only the tip of the iceberg.  IF things work out, I'll only be teaching in this school for a year and then I'll be moving overseas to teach.  It's a lengthy process to go through because I have a specific job that I want, but if it doesn't work out, I'm going to look at other options too.  But I really think that I stand a good chance at getting this next position.  Everything that I do is preparing me better for this job.  So I want it and I'm going to make it happen.

The next step is a difficult one for me.  It's a 500 word essay.  Do you know how hard it is for me to do an essay in ONLY 500 words?  I'm working on it, but I'm not sure what I want to put.  I'm not in a rush, but eventually I do need to get it finished.  If things work out, I will be leaving after teaching summer school next year to go to Missouri to visit my kids for a short period of time and then to move overseas and I may not come back anytime soon.  I may go do the job that I want for a couple of years but continue on overseas and just stay moving every year or two.

I've also decided that I want to stay single for a while.  IF I find someone who wants to and is capable of going on this journey with me, I'll reconsider, but I want this more than I want a relationship right now, so I am going to work my butt off towards this.  I've had a single relationship and some potential ones, but none of them really were all that of what I was looking for, so I have stopped looking.

As many know, I've made some huge gains in my physical health too.  I'm going to continue on working on that until I am unstoppable.  I'm already pretty amazing, considering how I had become, but I don't accept anything less then perfection and I'm going to keep doing what I am doing and becoming better and better.

I'm also going to, before I leave, purchase a GoPro and a drone (assuming where I go I will have the means to recharge them, but I may just need to get some solar cells to take with me) and use it to follow me on my adventures.  I'm excited for my future.  I'm going to travel the world and live an adventure.  We'll see where it goes!

Start of a new adventure?

Well, I removed my old blog and I'm going to start a new one now.  Today is the 17th of June, but I'm going to take you back a couple of weeks to May 26th, the start of this new adventure.  That is the day that I started the long process of going on my new adventure.  It's going to take a lot of planning and all, but it's going to be worth it.  I'm going to keep some of it quiet because, to be honest, I'm leaving a lot of it open, but as things progress I will give details.  At the earliest, this new adventure will start after July 2017...but it's going to be a lot of planning before I get to that date.  So I'm going to keep this short and let you know that I probably will be gone for a long time, should things happen as I'm hoping.  Shoot, I may not come back (except for short visits), so we'll just have to see.  Maybe this page won't be so much about trials and tribulations, but more about travels and adventures, but I'm sure that all won't be roses and unicorns, but I am going to make a difference in the lives of many, so it'll all be worth it.
