I really don’t know what had happened but I have failed in keeping track with so many things. June and July past in a blur to me but I am very sure I did a lot of things in these 2 months. For one, I had been busy since we got the keys to our new home. There are simply too much works to follow up and to purchase for the new home. Of course, there were some excitements and anxieties about this new home. We haven’t even moved yet but the things to do are still piling up. As the semester is still on-going, with a lot of lesson plans and grading in the process, work seems to be never-ending.
The new home is turning out to be very cosy with scenic view. We bought some new furniture so the new home is already equipped with comfortable sofa, dining table and cabinets. I spend a lot of times here during the weekends to sort out our stuff that we have moved them bit by bit. The process is exhausting but it is kind of cool to have another chance in life to redecorate our home sweet home.
At work, news of a changed management caught all of us off guard. I was quite deeply affected by the news and I felt a bit lost of direction in my way forward. The new boss is truly new in the university so I really have no idea if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Sadly, I have no idea how will I progress in the coming years with my old boss gone from management. My old boss had been a great mentor and I truly missed him. With all the changes in the faculty, I have second thought about doing PhD. My original plan for that may be put on hold indefinitely. I don’t see a point in getting PhD now with the current situation in the faculty. I may have different direction (career wise) for myself but nothing is of certain yet. However, my love for teaching and learning has not changed a bit.
By the way, some interested readers have been leaving me messages asking me if I have taken the CISSP exam. I realised my study plan mentioned I should have taken it in July. Sadly, I haven’t. My study plan has been derailed badly with so many on-going things in my life now. I’m actually sad but didn’t do much about it. I have continued to read on and off about CISSP, when my lesson plans called for it but to be actually ready for the exam, I guess not. Anyway, I sincerely thank you to those who have asked. I wish I have more better update about this soon.
