Flowing

Standard

I haven’t blogged in awhile, and I know it’s true! Excuses don’t become us, so I will just say I will try to be a part of this community more, and blog more, and read more. πŸ˜€

Many changes have occurred in my life, such as getting married to my soul mate, prince charming! We’ve been married for 8 blissful months already. May 21st was our big day – yes it was a full moon, a super moon, and a new moon! In other words, the universe was on our side for such a momentous day!

Some of you may have heard of my poetry book Soul Thoughts, which can be found through Amazon or Barnes & Noble’s website, or even through my publisher iUniverse’s website. Or here: celestialk.weebly.com. My poetry bookΒ has been out, and my two careers of legal Transcription Manager and House Manager for events have been keeping me busy, but I absolutely LOVE my careers!

I had to switch careers, guys.

I have to admit, I wasn’t happy being a teacher in today’s society, and it’s been over a year since I’ve been a teacher. The way the system is run, and how I was horrible at classroom management, and how I tried for years, struggling… it all was worth it and fine for that time in my life. Until I transitioned to a new period in my life.

My lesson to everyone I can reach will be – do what you love! Please, work to be happy in your career. I’ve believed that since I was a child and wondered WHY people did a job every day that they HATED. For money? Not worth it. Be HAPPY πŸ˜€ I hope you can find a passion and stick to it, and if you’re lucky enough and work hard enough, you’ll get paid for it, too!

I hope to be an inspiring writer. I want to write about my experiences, what I’ve learned, my beliefs in the spirit world, angels, fairies, magic, love, beings beyond earth, as those things I’m passionate about. So stay tuned if these topics interest you! πŸ™‚

  1. How long were you a teacher for? I’m at cross roads right now in terms of my own ‘work’. I’ve never actually had a ‘real’ job, and have played poker professionally for the last 7 years. A side effect of the job is that I’m completely desensitized to money and burn through it like a wildfire whenever I have it.

    My mom has been teaching for 30 years, and knows I want more than anything to live in Asia, so invested in me getting a CELTA in Barcelona. I must admit that I detested my colleagues. Part of me thinks the overly energetic/dynamic personalities of teachers is really too much for me, and I can’t handle it.

    However, I truly loved the 9 Teaching practices I gave, and felt like I vibed with my students and was able to get them speaking about whatever the lesson aim was. I felt really happy after each of my lessons.

    The sample size is small, but I couldn’t stand 11/13 of my colleagues, so maybe I shouldn’t let that deter me, but another thing that has me really hard-pressed is the lack of money in teaching. I burnt through 4,000 euros in 1 month in Barcelona excluding accommodation. 600 of that was on my Budapest trip, but I couldn’t help myself but to eat out every single meal, drink wine/smoke shisha while blogging and getting my HW or lesson plans done, so now am wondering how I’m supposed to actually make this work.

    Obviously the problem is my lifestyle, and sadly my mom completely enables it since 2,000 of that 4,000 was hers. She’s been enabling me outside of poker on ‘bad things’ for a long time, and isn’t even aware of her contributions to my suffering. If i were to stay in the states, I have a gaming (casino) management degree, but no work experience, so wouldn’t be able to live the lifestyle I used to playing poker, so maybe using teaching to completely get away from her would be a good idea?

    Idk thoughts?

    • These are some deep thoughts and entangled situations, Pharaoh. I was a teacher for 3 years in high schools. I have a kind personality, and couldn’t control my classrooms properly. I got along well with students one-on-one, but in a large group of 30, they didn’t listen to me. I was never in good schools where students wanted to learn, though. I could not take a LOT of things about teaching in the states. You’re teaching in Barcelona? That is a completely different setting that I know nothing of. It seems like you care for a very materialistic lifestyle. It seems like you want a lifestyle change but aren’t sure how to accomplish it. I, too, enjoy wine and I personally love sweets and coffees and to go shopping for clothes and shoes. But it’s all material. Teachers get paid more than I’m currently making, and I’m doing just fine. I took a pay cut getting out of teaching, but through searching through myself and the internet, and asking for friends’ advise, I found my callings. I found jobs that I like to do truly. One day it’ll get me the pay I really deserve, too, but I need to find happiness in what I do or I’m not happy. I would say meditate upon things that make you happy that AREN’T as material, such as travel, spending time at the beach, spending time with friends, art, reading, etc. Addictions are hard to get over, and I understand what an addictive personality is like. I would say start a journey yourself with a group, like join a gym, or a yoga class. Meditate upon what you really want or what your soul needs and bring it forth through your positive thinking.

      • Thats unfortunate teaching didn’t work out for you. Thinking of myself back in HS (I never shut up) students like me were part of the problem. Sorry! I’m glad you transitioned into something that you enjoy though, and hope it pays off long term

        To be honest, I’ve been completely miserable while abroad. My mom more or less dumped $5,000 on this stupid CELTA certification in Barcelona just so I can get certified, but on my record I have two DUIS, and a ‘assault on a protected officer’ when I apparently hit a male nurse back when I was 18 and ODing on Xanax. I have no recollection of this, but its still on my record and probably will make it near impossible to get a VISA anywhere in Asia.

        My mom is the number one problem in my life. She enables everything and then complains later. I’m a ‘degen’ degenerate in many ways. As we said in poker “degens gonna degen.” Which is why my poker career failed, and why some of my non-degen friends are opening up business from the money they saved through poker. Pretty depressing to look back on.

        Yoga was amazing the 5 months I did it. Have always been meaning to get back into it, but don’t think its possible right now. Meditation, however, is possible. Lots of people have been telling me to meditate, but I just close my eyes and get ridiculously bored and don’t go through with it lol.

      • I can actually understand where you feel your mother is an issue in your life. My mom is in mine, as well. But it’s all lessons to eventually forgive. At least your mom had money to dump on your certification, and did! I’ve had to pay for all my schooling (well, continuing to pay back loans, let me say.) You seem connected to yoga, which IS a source of meditation when you do it certain ways. Yoga classes are expensive, so if you don’t have the money, do it at home. Myself, I’ve collected some books and DVDs over time, and occasionally have bought some Groupons for yoga classes. It’s something that I want to get better at and I always feel better after. It’s a more active meditation, so maybe you can get into it more. If you’ll read through some other of my posts (I don’t know which ones you’ve read) but I talk about how I like to walk in nature, just really walk in my backyard, around the neighborhood, whatever, and set my mind on cleansing thoughts as I walk, so I’m meditating and exercising at the same time. Might be worth a shot for you. There are also 2 meditation apps I like that are free – Calm and Aura. Other than that, If you don’t have a job now, with all that’s on your record, I’d suggest looking for a job. Even if it’s at a coffee shop ( I love coffee shops.) Earning those wages will make you feel accomplished. I don’t remember at this moment if you said you were already working? (I know I’m responding late.) You mentioned teaching, I just don’t know how easy it would be to get a teaching job with those on your records. But a retail job would be a fine starting point, although you can’t live a lavish lifestyle like that! Well I’m not sure what you’re aiming for job-wise, but I hope I’ve helped with the meditating portion. πŸ˜€ lol

      • I like walking as well. Theres a park and a wash with a trail for a few miles across from where I live so I walk often. I was getting trained in Europe/traveling. It was like a job for a month we had class/taught from 9-5, so the course was 20 days long. Now I’m looking for work, but of course its harder with my record. I might go to Thailand or Cambodia for a year until I can get some stuff sealed and then want to get to Japan. Not really sure, but really hoping to leave again in a month cuz I don’t want to be in America lol.

        I just downloaded calm, so Ill try it before bed tonight πŸ™‚ thanks

      • Aww I’m glad you’re trying the apps. I hope you like it, i’m sure there are plenty of others out there. lots of meditations on Youtube as well. I like your ideas of traveling to Thailand or Cambodia and getting out of America. I wish I could escape, as well. My heart is in Europe- Ireland, England, and close by countries. I truly wish I could go there and escape, perhaps in my retiring years. We’ll see what happens. πŸ™‚ I wish you luck with what you do, and I hope that if you do get out of America, you have fun wherever you end up! I’d love to go exploring more out of the US. πŸ™‚

      • Oh yes, I will definitely travel in life!! What I meant about retiring is maybe like LIVING in Ireland or such when I retire. But traveling will always happen!!! But money is holding back now, so I’ll have to wait,, but when it flows in, I’m all over traveling πŸ˜€
