First of all, Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a great time, whether they were alone at home or out celebrating with friends and family. I spent the last day of 2017 doing a little cleaning around my apartment, playing Ensemble Stars while watching stages and then talking to my mum for a while.
When I wrote about my 2017 I really realised how many things I had done, how many people I had encountered, and how all of those people made it an amazing year. I really want to thank all of my family (for putting up with me talking about nothing but all the events and stages and actors), friends old and new for sharing those events and stages with me, and for all the fun chats about them, and all of those amazing actors who worked hard to put on great performances that I was able to watch.
Personally, in 2017 I felt a lot more comfortable in my job with a new boss who I respect a lot more than the previous one, and who gave me the chance to have more responsibility as a teacher who has been there a long time (but I’ll mention that again later). With that responsibility I got an easier time of things, and also the chance to do things that I hadn’t done before. I got to take part in two English Camps this year which were tiring but a lot of fun. Although I had some hard times, bad classes, bad decisions on other people’s part, and had something terrible happen to one of my former students, in general I felt like this year was good work-wise.
