The end of another year. It’s been a bit of an odd one. On the plus there’s the fact we are, for the first time in a long time, financially solvent. Christa has been working hard at PR Services and I have been an itinerant worker for the department of education and helping out at the swimming club. The beginning of the year started wonderfully with the acquisition of my teachers’ certification. Our little guy is coming on in leaps and bounds and Maggie keeps us amused and frustrated in equal parts.
But on the other hand, I am frustrated and worried that I won’t be able to get a full time teaching job up here in Whitehorse. The lack of a full time job makes me feel like I am standing still both professionally and personally. We want to stay here but the reality is I don’t have years to wait, I’m conscious of the clock ticking, so to speak. That said it’s one of the great things about life, you never really know what’s around the corner. Sometimes it’s just a matter of waiting and seeing.
So let’s hope that 2016 is good year for us all. As a family, we’ll be taking the bull by the horns and shaking them. We’ll see what happens. Happy New Year to us all.
