What's it all about?

Fast approaching 30 I've fallen in to teaching, a career though championed by many amongst my friends and family, I've tried desperately to avoid. Worse still I appear to have missed the heyday when students were keen and wages were plenty. Having left city-life behind to support my partner through a prolonged recovery from cancer, it's clear I've become isolated, not only from my old life, but from the future I hoped it would lead to...

There must be more to life than this..?

Here comes the rain again...

So here I am, an hour from 2011 with my 30th birthday growing increasingly closer. Like many at this time of year I'm one of those who falls to the temptations of uttering that overly used, cliched phrase 'it's such an anticlimax'. I've never enjoyed New Year's Eve, probably because as a child post-christmas always meant one would have to wait a further twelve months for more presents, not to mention that it always signified the impending return to school after the holidays.

Aside from the childhood scarring I guess there's a lot of pressure to have an amazing celebratory night wherever you are, generally it's all a little too contrived for me. So instead I'll be staying in with a bottle of vodka, some champagne, my partner and our cats... (Did I say I was about to hit 30 or 50..?)

Anyway, here's to a whole new year of life affirming discoveries! Happy New Year All!

Love Drew x
