I reckon everyone reaches a point where they know they are done on something! I am done on Indonesia, I need to be somewhere else and doing something else. I have been here a long time and the last five years in the same company and doing the same job...there are no real prospects of promotion and it feels very much like treading water, a sort of going through the motions.
This year is going to be a year of change. Our family will grow by one later in the year and that sounds like the perfect time for a fresh start! We will be heading back to Australia and I am going to do a teaching qualification and then teach English, Indonesian, and Legal Studies, which sounds like as good a plan as anything else right at this point in time. Teaching offers something I am not currently getting besides a real salary for real work, it offers the chance of promotion. The Department of Education even offers scholarships in these areas so maybe I will get lucky!
This post is not about Indonesia per se but rather about the lack of progress I am making and perhaps this lack of progress is my fault. However, a change is as good as a holiday and it is time for a holiday!
