I’m done. I can’t do this anymore.
After months of soul-searching and thinking about the future, I’ve decided that teaching simply isn’t the profession I’m meant to have. I’ve worked excessively hard over the past three years, and to be honest, I’m exhausted. This isn’t fun. It doesn’t make me happy. To get anywhere you have to work all the time, and that’s no longer a sacrifice I’m willing to make.
So this is it. The end of my stint as a teacher. I’m exploring my options beyond the classroom and as soon as I know what I’m doing, you bet it’ll be here.
I’ve decided I’m going to keep blogging about my life. Maybe it won’t be as interesting as my life as Ms. Bennett, but it’s high time I gave precedence to my life as Chris. I’ve started reading a book called The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I’m only about 25 pages in, but so far it really speaks to me. I think I’m going to start my own happiness project, seeing as how at the moment I am extremely unhappy in this job.
The Bay Area is a glorious place to live, and I’m going to actually start living here! Goodbye, drudgery, hello enlightenment!
