Well typically I’m not an overly over the top, tell you about my life goals type person in my posts, I like to keeps things light and fun. But I feel that if I don’t write it down somewhere, outright say it and admit it to more than just Veronica I will never follow through and make it happen. Ever since Veronica announced about two years back that she was to move to the UK I’ve been a bit jealous, and kept saying oh I might do that and threw around the idea. That has been something I’ve been saying, well for two years now, and I’m no closer to this goal or following through with it. So I’ve decide that if I put it out there in words, that it somehow makes it law in a matter of speaking. I am no longer allowed to flip flop over it and changed my mind, this is something I want and need to do to make myself happy for me.
I’m scared the fact that I’ve finally come to the conclusion that this is what I need to do, that means uprooting myself from my life, family and friends but I know it’ll be worth it. I’ve done it before and I’ve never regretted it so why would this be any different? I’m always coming up with excuses like what am I to do with my stuff, or my car or my debits, but these are all things that I can sell or work on paying off while I’m away. I just have to be realistic about, and realize that I need to save and that everything else will fall into place.
I may not have it planned out in the least of where I’m going to go but I do know that I need to get my butt in gear and finish my TEFL course that I register for a few months back so that it opens up my options of where I can go and teach. I also know that things like finding myself a second part time job to help make saving easier, as will learning to make some sacrifices when it comes to my spending habit and even maybe sucking up some pride and asking to move back home to save some money once my lease it up will be an asset in the end.
Although I may not have a specific location set I have finally admitted it aloud and that is the first step and what I need to do do to make me finally admit what I want and to help me meet my goals.
This is me, Unofficially, Making It Official
*update – I got a part time job, so I’m one step closer 🙂
