This is me. Eating a salad. Listening to Jars of Clay whilst writing this blog post next to the piano on a clear sunny day. And I’m excited right now, because I’m officially a student of the Professional Organiser Industry.
I’m really excited about this course because I love organising. I go on a high from cleaning stuff out, throwing useless things away, and putting the rest back in order in a way that’ll work. I love books on time management, and it always feels great to get to use a clear, functioning space. Some people look at me like I’m crazy but others will offer to hire me on the spot to clean out their house! Who would’ve thought one would be passionate about organising – but that’s me. I’m using a course from Get Organised, an Australian Professional Organising business (the founder of this business really brought Professional Organising to Australia in the first place). It’s online, self-paced, and very practical. It’ll give me the skills to start up a business and teach me about organising and dealing with clients.
I finished school December 2011 (Australia’s school year goes from Febuary – December) but had already decided not to go to university (college), simply because there is nothing there that sparks my interest enough to spend the time and effort for three+ years at university. Not that people shouldn’t go to uni, or that I won’t ever, but at the moment, it’s not on the table for me.
Organising course aside, I’m continuing with piano, and want to get back into playing the piano for Church regularly. As I mentioned before, I read a lot of books while we were away overseas and I’m keen to keep that pace going. I still have a few hours of study in the morning, for things like Bible Study, and I want to hit the road with my driver’s licence (pun intended). Nomi and I are still involved with Mainly Music, as well as Church, of course. I plan on writing for the blog, and sewing, and cooking, and learning to doodle (a possibly successful venture), and fiddling with graphic design, typesetting and publishing; and having people over for dinner, and family fun nights, and who knows what else. I’m looking forward to developing skills, interests, passions, and family and friend relationships in this next phase of life!
