I know I haven't been writing much lately, and I don't really know why. Sometimes, even in my non-blog life, I feel like hibernating, being quiet. I don't have much to say, I guess.
Summer is winding down, and while on one hand I'm glad for it - I love the fall, on the other I'm a bit sad. The school year is starting once again, and once again I will not be in front of a classroom. Last year was because I was on maternity leave; this year because there are just no jobs out there. I moved during my leave, so if I want to teach again, I will need to get a job in my new board - the old one is too far a commute.
I miss my school and I miss our old home during these times. I miss my classroom and I miss my colleagues. In this respect, I feel useless and unwanted. Life is moving on without me.
All these thoughts are keeping me quiet right now. I know I need to not dwell in the past and embrace my present, because my present holds so many wonderful things.
But it's hard.
