I haven’t blogged in a while. The end of 2018 was reasonably chaotic for me in every sphere of my existence. In this post I’ll be providing the reasons for this, luckily each provides me with ample opportunity to write new and varied content! 2019 is shaping up to be a huge year for my family and me. I’ve received a new dedication to writing. My teaching career is shifting into a new space and speed, it concerns but also refreshing. Last, of all, my family is growing, and I couldn’t be more inspired to become the man I want them to be proud of!
- On writing, I discovered Scrivener which has ordered my long-form writing and given me a lot of inspiration to buckle down and hit my first novel hard. It seems specifically catered to people like me, those who procrastinate and get lost in the sheer mass of their worlds. At some point, I’ll write a post about what makes Scrivener such a great resource. SPOILER ALERT: I definitely recommend it!
- On teaching, I’m shifting from being a homeroom teacher for students in years 7 and 8 to a specialty role as Head of Digital Technology. With this role I was offered the opportunity to return to my roots, I shaved off the final week of school and journeyed to Macquarie University, where I graduated in 2015. I participated in a practical professional development, learning about how I can get my students involved in FRC – First Robotics Competition. It seems like an excellent opportunity for me to introduce our indigenous students the STEM fields and have them begin to dream of a new path through life.
- Last and most important, I had a son! He decided to surprise us a few weeks early and be born on Christmas day 2018. I won’t speak too much about it now because he will undoubtedly be a massive source of inspiration for much of my writing shortly.
2019 is looking great.
I look forward to writing some more fluffy and inspirational poetry. Reviewing some software and hopefully even doing some new hobby-related content too!
I’d love it if everyone could join me for the adventure!
