I know I say this every year, but 2017 flew by…
I think this is more true than other years just because it was such a BUSY YEAR.
I completed three lots of placement in 2017, which was very difficult and yet, fulfilling.
In January, I did 15 days of placement at my current ELC, starting in the Babies Room and finishing up in the Kinder Room. In April/May, I did 20 days with a Foundation/Prep class and then in July/August, I did another 20 days with a Grade 3 class! Slowly moving up in age was great, especially as I initially was very worried with the older age group. I loved every one of my placements and it’s just really satisfying knowing that I’m on the right track with what I want to do.
I also said a sad goodbye to my first car and welcomed in my second one!
And finally, probably my biggest accomplishment yet, I flew to Europe all by myself!
I met up with Ash in Paris, but flying from MEL > HKG > FRA > CDG was very nerve-wrecking for someone like who has never really done anything by herself before! I am very proud of myself for getting through the entire journey well with no real hiccups throughout. And of course, Europe with Ash was awesomeee and I’ll definitely need to post about that soon.
All in all, 2017 was an exhausting but fun year! Let’s bring on 2018!
