New Year, New Plans.

Happy New Year and welcome to 2014!
I had a quiet New Years Eve with family, food, delicious strawberry daiquiris {recipe below} and a view across the water to see the fireworks in town.

Now, with the new year in full swing I thought it was a good time to share my new plans for 2014.

1. Moving.
It's time for me to leave home once again. After moving back in with the parents so that I could afford to see America this year, the time has come to return to grown up life. I'm planning to make the move back to my University city, where I previously lived for five years (2008-2012). Originally, I didn't want to move back there, I was hoping for something new, different and exciting, but with a lack of job prospects elsewhere it just makes sense to surround myself with familiar places and best of all my FRIENDS!

2. Working.
I tweaked my resume, applied for jobs and wrote countless selection criteria but it seems that a permanent teaching job in NSW is just not going to happen for me in 2014. So part of the reason for the move from my small town back to the city is the abundance of schools. I'm hoping/planning to pick up casual work in schools, aim for some blocks of relief teaching and reapply for the next round of teacher applications.

3. Living.
I'm moving into a share house with people I've never met and I can't wait! I'm excited at the prospect of a new house with new housemates, new friends and new adventures.

I can't wait to see all that 2014 has in store!
What are your plans for the year?
