Update

Posted by Patrick on October 27, 2010

It’s been almost five months since my last blog post.  It’s strange to have lost the desire to blog since I had been doing it fairly regularly for the past few years.  I’m not too sure what happened, but somehow, I get a feeling I don’t have much to contribute.  Even this post is more of a kick-in-the-butt-type thing.  I figured that if I made myself sit down and blab a little, it might come back.  So how about a brief recap of the past five months?

Five months ago: I was in Taiwan where I had been for four years teaching math in an international high school.

Four months ago: I was leaving Taiwan for good, having decided half a year earlier that it was my last year there.  I spent a few days in Vancouver visiting friends, and the rest of the summer with my family.

Two months ago: I started teaching math in my hometown college where I was hired to substitute for a semester.

I’m still not sure what I will be doing after xmas or next year for that matter.  Maybe that’s why I don’t feel like blogging so much.  I’m loving the time I’m spending with my family, but I think I might be feeling a little underwhelmed.  Not that teaching is easy: it never is.  But I can’t say it’s as intense as I was used to.  Maybe I’ll just keep enjoying the down time and start pondering my next move.
