I’m just wondering if anyone has been in a similar position as I am soon to be- and what you did!
Basically for the last 9 years I’ve just worked full time so my husband could complete his degree and PhD without having to worry about working- I’ve been within schools the whole time with teenagers with special educational needs (but mainstream) and in pastoral support. It’s never something I intended to go into- it just happened. And now- well I’m really not enjoying it anymore at all.
As I’ve said on here before, in September my husband and I are moving to Canada- he has been offered a post-doctorate position at a university and will earn considerably more than I currently do. I have handed my notice in and from 1st September will be unemployed for the first time.
My issue really, is I’ve got no idea what to do or what I want to do with myself! There’s various things I’m interested in but I just don’t know. My husband will be earning enough so I technically don’t have to work if I don’t want to. But I’m only 28- so I do intend to work- I just have no idea what- I don’t want to be back in schools. Anyone else been in this sort of position before? How did you decide?
You’d think it would be a nice feeling- but I feel like if I don’t decide sometime I’m going to just waste time!..and you only live once! I want to make the most! I feel like I’m a teenager all over again going ‘well I don’t know what I want to do when I’m older!’
