Melanin Talks: I ghosted again

Hey guys!

I know I know, I’ve been away for quite some time and I promise it has not been intentional. I say this truthfully haha. I just haven’t had the time to sit down and catch up on here; I’m either stomped with lesson planning or I’m sleeping away trying to catch up with the sleep I’ve lost. Although all this sounds like a whole load of excuses to you as you’re reading, I have missed my blog and feel bad for abandoning it for such a long period of time. It well and truly hasn’t been the same without it. So, I may as well share what has been happening in the time that I haven’t shown my face right.

Teacher training

I don’t think I mentioned my aspiration to be a teacher on here…or maybe I did lol. Anyhow, the point is that I’m currently doing my PGCE (NQT) course as an English teacher in a secondary school. Yep, you read that correctly haha. The thing that has been taking most of my time is the teacher training course, as I have been either planning my lessons or marking my students books (which take longer than you’d expect). The idea of finally becoming a teacher has been nothing but a dream come true for someone that imagined of being nothing else since I was a little girl. However, it does come at a price of being a ‘professional’ (it’s what they refer to us since we aren’t exactly students) as you have strict deadlines and such to meet. Having people in my course that are also going through it does help though.



The month of October has been a busy one, moving my stuff out of my sister’s house and into my new flat (at last!). It’s not too far from hers though, so she’s going to find me popping over quite often for something to eat. I’d be lying if I said that I’ve completed moving everything but as always, I’m slow with nearly everything that I do. And frankly I’m okay with that at the moment as I don’t want to be rushing everything in all at once.


Thessaloniki, Greece

Lastly, I’ve been planning a week’s holiday to Thessaloniki with the siblings as a birthday/christmas present for our mum. We planned this trip since the beginning of the year and it definitely was hard to keep it a secret from her for so long. The wait was truly worth it though when we saw her face at the airport. Yes, I’m currently in Greece as I’m writing this blog post, as it could be the only time that I get the chance to just sit down and relax with a cocktail in hand, whilst trying to get my blog up running again. I will be sure to write a travel post of my time here in Greece and share the fun memories that we’ve had whilst being here.


I guess you can say these are a glimpse of things that I’ve been up to while away. I will try to get some posts written up whilst I’m still here in Greece and get them scheduled for the next coming weeks. My aim is to slowly try and get my schedule back to how it used to be. As for  now just be patient with me please as I am trying.

Yours Truly,
