It's that time of year again that I love. Early November - spring in full bloom with a hint of summer in the air. And on a particularly hot day, as you're padding barefoot down the corridor, you can almost imagine that it's the Christmas holidays already. The angst-filled dramas of October fade into the heady days of November (or at least, that's how it's always been), and it's hard to feel sad when the sun shines so brightly.
I haven't blogged in several days, and there's been some Important News that I should mention:
1) Last Friday, I finally had that chat with Teh Boss, and I was told that they're definitely offering me a position next year. Included is probably either a Year 11 or Year 12 English Language class. If it's Year 12, it's likely to only be a small class of about 12 students, which makes the idea of teaching Year 12 less daunting. I probably won't be getting any History, but that's okay, I guess. If I don't feel particularly happy about the news, at least I feel relieved: relieved to know what direction my life is heading in, and relieved to not have to be applying for jobs.
2) My parents bought a small apartment in Glen Waverley under my name. Mum wanted me to jointly invest with her, but I told her that I didn't want the pressure of a mortgage just yet.
3) I levelled Lish to 80 a couple of days ago. Finally! As per usual, as soon I hit 80, I lost all motivation to keep playing. Doh. I really need to get her geared up though.( Cut for length )
Oh! Speaking of chicks. The little eggs in the little nest in our little tree finally hatched. There are little birdies in it now. I guess it's a good thing Stormy isn't around to eat them. Here's a picture of the eggs from when they were still unhatched:
