Taking the world less travelled

Life, Priorities, Thoughts and Life… Recontracting?

Posted by on Feb 5, 2010 in Life | 3 comments

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about life and stuff. I know thinking is bad for your health, and I’ve concluded that the answer is 42, I’m still no closer to the ultimate question.

What do I want to achieve in this life? There are many things that I want to do. I’m young but I know if you don’t set out clear plans and intentions, the days roll round quickly into years and suddenly it’s five years later and you are no closer to where you want to be.

One thing’s for sure – I don’t want an ordinary life. Some people are happy with a nice, comfortable life with 3.2 kids and a home of their own. And I guess I would like that too. But I want to experience other things as well. I’m not a great adventurer but I would like to see the world.

The thing is my careers of choice are not the stable income time. My careers of choice are the type where 2% are rich and the rest are struggling to make end meet….

I am also no closer to achieving anything in my chosen professions than I was 5 years ago. They haven’t been high on the priority list. They should have been. Japanese definitely took over. Lately… Lately I want to keep learning Japanese but I feel like I need to put these other things into my life as well.

This has all come about partly because it is recontracting time with JET. Do I stay or do I go? I don’t know. I don’t know. It’s due today but I’m handing in my forms tomorrow to my supervisor. So I have just over 12 hours to decide. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. I’ve seriously been thinking hard about it for two weeks and I am perhaps no where near closer to a decision. I’m looking into my life’s priorities and I’m not sure.

So that’s where I’ve been. Deep in thought. I don’t know. I’m too indecisive.

    I hear you on that one, it’s one of the many reasons I visit your blog. We’re somewhat on the same road. Best of luck :)
