I tried to insert the video to Europe’s “The Final Countdown” but the iPad is not cooperating. Anywhoo on to the questions;
In 2019 did you;
1. Get a new job?
Not really. I am still teaching pretty much the same subjects at the same school. I did take on a new role supporting indigenous students which is not as glamorous or as hard hitting as it sounds but it was interesting nonetheless. I hope I made a small difference to at least one student and will build on that in the coming year.
2. Get s new haircut?
My hair is still long as it has always been but this year I inserted an undercut and a small section on the side of my head is now shaved as well. I also changed colour. For many years I have had red or sometimes violet but earlier this year I changed to black. I actually liked it however I am currently growing out all of the colour I have going on because I am planning to be travelling for most of 2021 and need a hairstyle that doesn’t require maintenance. So bye bye colour.
3. Get a new car?
No. There has been much discussion relating to cars in our house over the last few years. “My” car is a Mazda RX8 that is relatively expensive to run (although it is fun to drive 😁). I also have a car that I share with my son that is considerably cheaper to run. The day is coming when he will buy me out and I will no longer have access to this one, then we may have to actually make a decision about getting a car for me to drive that is not so expensive.
No. Our current house is pretty much perfect for us. Good location, very big back yard and quite comfortable in size. That and some other financial reasons mean we will be staying here for the foreseeable future.
5. Get a new romantic partner?
I am in a marriage that has chalked up 21 years of life and is still going strong. I can’t see myself going anywhere soon.
6. Have a kid?
Nope, nope, NOPE!!!
One of the things I seem to say a lot these days when I am observing other people struggling with their younger children is “I am glad I don’t have little kids anymore” and I am. I didn’t hate having my own children as babies, toddlers or otherwise. I have been fortunate that adolescence was relatively peaceful in our house but that doesn’t mean I want to do it again.
7. Take up a new hobby?
I did take up an extension of my beloved pole dancing, exotic floorplay which looks something like this;
It is challenging and sometimes quite painful but I hope to continue with it in 2020
In 2020 will you;
1. Get a new job?
No. My daughter attends the school I teach at so I will be there until she graduates at the end of 2020. After that I may have a look around at other opportunities.
2. Get a new car?
Probably not given the situation I already spoke about. But you never know.
3. Take a risk?
I asked Mr Jones about this as I couldn’t think of anything. He says that I take a risk every time I tweet or write here. I am careful about my work colleagues stumbling across this blog or probably worse, finding me on a dating website or a club. While we are living in the 21st century there are probably a lot of parents out there who would not be happy that a person teaching their child does not have the same ideas about monogamy that they do.
Bonus: What will be important to you in 2020, that wasn’t important in 2019?
This sounds like an alternative question to “what is your New Year’s resolution?” Something I suck at. So I don’t really have an answer to this one either.
