Well, it’s certainly been a little while since I felt like posting on here. I’ll be honest for a while there I’d more or less forgotten about the existence of the Zombie Dinosaur, but then I remembered. They could potentially pose a serious risk if they do arrive, that is if the world doesn’t end first. I guess it’s fair just to catch you guys up on what I’ve been up to during my absence. Not a whole heap has really happened to be entirely honest. Obviously having a daily job takes up most of my time do there’s not a vast amount of time or energy to do many other things.
Possibly the biggest news is that I have started my applications for PGCE positions at a couple of universities in September. It’s taken me a couple of months to really motivate my self to doing so as it was never part of the big plan or at least not this early. Truth of the matter is though my career in archaeology is looking like it maybe a short one at this point. There’s a whole hand-full of reasons to be moving out of the field to be honest, but I suppose the biggest of these is the lack of security. A month long rolling contract doesn’t exactly make it easy to plan for anything, let alone long term. So the new plan is go into teaching (I’d always planned this for further down the line but there’s no time like the present and all that.)
So, other news aside from the move into teaching.. I got a new car. Yeah, so it doesn’t sound like much but as those that know me will tell you. This is a big thing for me. It’s also incredibly strange. I bought myself a more modern car, the first car that I’ve driven in over 6 years that isn’t over 30 years old. So I settled for a more “sensible” and “adult” car (Not my words.) which is more appropriate for work and general running about in. I’ll be honest, it’s only half sensible as I did go for the model with the big engine, the gadgets and the uprated sound system. Still, its not a classic and whilst I still own her I do occasionally miss the old girl.
So aside from the potential new direction in life and a new car there’s not really much to tell. Hopefully I can come up with some more over the coming weeks. What with some cinema excursions planned, the end of the world, Xmas and the new year, maybe I will get some content.
