An old new year

Happy New Year 2021. I feel that this new year is old.

Nothing has changed much. Kids are getting lots of presents and adults are indulging themselves with endless food and wine (if they are the lucky ones). The radio and tv are showing the same news around the world, just with less Trump-news (or maybe I am not paying any more attention). Do I sound depressed?

Maybe, maybe not. I am a realist. I take one day at a time. I do one thing at a time. I try to tackle one challenge at a time. COVID-19 and 2020 have strengthened the realist in me.

I don’t have big dreams going forward. I just have one dream, which is to build a stronger future for my family and the people that I appreciate.

I don’t have big goals for 2021. I just have one goal, which is to improve what I am currently doing.

I don’t have big plans for 2021. I just have one plan, which is to share my knowledge and energy with people who appreciate and respect the same things that I do in life.

And I think this is good enough for 2021. I know it’s going to be just fine.

Happy New Year 2021. 2020 was tough and challenging. I cannot predict what will happened in 2021. All I can say is I will do my best.

Goodbye, 2020. Welcome 2021.

Why this?

Coming out to share and play

For a long time, I have been thinking of starting a blog. But I am not sure why and how.

Here I am. This is an experiment project that I am going to take on to challenge myself. Do you feel sometimes you have an urge or a strong passion to do something but you don’t know why or what for? This is one of those moments.

I have been teaching for over a decade now. I feel that I want to share my experience with more people outside of my classrooms and to learn from everyone. Hence, I am starting this.

To be honest, I haven’t got a clear idea or direction for how this blog is going to be, what content I am going to create, who I have in mind to share my thoughts with. I am just going to take an experimental and entrepreneurial approach to see where this will be going. Maybe you can tell me.

On a sunny Sunday morning in Melbourne, this is my first post. I am happy.
