I know yesterday was Thanksgiving, and to all you Americans out there, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! But, there are a few things that I find myself non-thankful for. And it’s nothing anyone else bestowed on me, but things I have bestowed on myself. So here’s the list. By this time next year I hope to have conquered even small points in each of these areas of my life.
That’s right, New Year’s Resolutions are so out right now!
- My lack of fitness, and motivation for it.
I have never been sporty. In fact, ever since I have started out on this journey to be a teacher, it’s the Physical Education curriculum that scares me the most. I used to go horse riding, and I did athletics for a while, but never anything overly serious.
So, this year I will aim to get fitter, and I really mean it this time! Whether it’s Zumba, Aquatics, push-ups in the morning, or even a walk or two during the week, I am going to do it! Starting next week! Yay… adding stress to an already hectic week is something I do wonderfully.
2. My self-conscious nature.
I have always been quiet, and shy. But now that I’m going into the teaching world, I have to get over it! Especially for when I’m teaching drama and art, and reading things aloud to the class. I have to get over that.
I have been gearing myself up to this by speaking out in class more, but I still end up shaking like a leaf after I make a point, which I hate. I know ‘m not aking a stupid point, it’s just the fear of people noticing me, I suppose. So, I guess that only way to get over that is to put myself out there and make myself noticed… I don’t ant all eyes on me, but I suppose all eyes of the class WILL be on me, so I have to do something to get used to this.
3. My moody nature
I don’t mean to be moody, but I am. I can blame it on the Hormone Replacement Therapy I’m on, but in all reality I’ve been on this treatment for well over a year by no, so I can’t really use that anymore. And hate getting angry at my brother Harry just because he happened to walk into the kitchen, singing happily just when I was in the middle of writing a sentence.
I’m going to need the patience of a saint to be a teacher. I may as well start trying to acquire one now!
4. My lack of a social life
At the moment all I see is Carlow- from afar, that is. I need get a social life! Like GO OUT, make more friends, or at least meet soeone other than my computer once a week!
If I get on top of all these aspects I’ll be like:
I know these may not seem like real problems at all, but to me, I feel like they are holding me back. Please let me know if you have any tips at all for me to get going on these!
