So, the last time I spoke to you guys, I was going to do the Hana challenge aka blogging almost every day. I said,
I am going to write 15 posts.
Did I do that?
Well, life happened. I got a new job, I changed house, I had to get my stuff sorted, I started a new job.
I have a new life and blogging is quite hard for me at the moment. I have loads of new ideas to share, but I do not have the time to share them. I am knackered. Like… so tired. No energy to write. No energy to share.
That makes me wonder though. Should my job be the thing that takes up all my time?
Well at the moment yes. Work is very important. I have new modules to teach. I create materials, I am doing a lot of marking. I am trying to learn how to get around a new campus.
I am also trying to adjust to a 9-5 job and that ain’t easy.
Life in the UK is different to life in Greece.
My work life is so different as well.
I am not a full time online Business English teacher any more. I am an EAP tutor.
I always wanted to work at a university. Now I am. You may catch me walking around the campus with a smile on my face and wonder if I have gone cray cray. I haven’t. I am just happy and I wish I could share that with you guys, my PLN, but I have no ELT blogging time.
When I do have time, I talk about makeup because here, this blog, is kind of like an extension of my work. It is not work, but it is my professional blog. My fun beauty blog is my getaway (not doing much of that btw either).
Anyways, I thought I’d just write a little update and let you know how I’ve been.
How are you guys? What are you guys up to? How is teaching treatin ya?
Till next time…
So glad to hear you’re enjoying your job, and looking forward to hearing more about it when you do have time! 🙂

I’m happy for you – it’s good when life happens. 🙂 It’s amazing how tiring working 9-5 is though, right? I never was close as regular at blogging as you, but I have even less time now with an office job. I feel a bit like I’m moving away from my PLN because of the stuff I tweet and I regret that. We’ll be around when you find time to share more about your job.

Life happens and even though we don’t get to accomplish everything we set out to, just having goals helps us to steer in the direction we want to. Better than to be a plastic bag drifting in whichever direction the wind blows.
