I’m already studying at university (something I’m proud of), I have two casual jobs, one as a bartender at a pub - my workmates are so good and my managers are so good to me (definitely blessed so far). I also have the opportunity to coach primary school kids. The ability to get children active and introduce some of these kids to sports they’ve never attempted.. watching them progress through my coaching, shooting their first hoop in basketball, it’s definitely a rewarding feeling and I’m thankful to have that opportunity as well. Sport is still my life and I’m thankful to be going into my sixth year of American football, or Gridiron. Along with playing sport comes the training, the physical prep needed for the game is high which pushed me to joining a gym at the age of 17. So training regularly has also become a weekly regime.
I also attempt to fit in a large social life, so my schedule is generally pretty busy. Normally seems like too much for some. It gets better.
Enlisted in the Army Reserves as an Officer, a part time role where I am able to study and train to be an Officer of the ADF but still have a life outside of the military, still study at University and work my casual jobs etc. Tax-free money, government benefits, opportunity to give back to my country.. come on easy decision. Wish I made it sooner. Interviews coming in the next two weeks so I’m excited.
I’ll also be going back to TAFE in the next couple of months, to finish off my Personal Training qualification and become qualified. Till I land me that one job that will deliver 6 figure salaries I will, in the meantime, be focusing on creating multiple streams of income. Personal Training will be one of them. I feel so far I have a sound knowledge of fitness and strength & conditioning, knowledge I’ve gathered from college and uni and various seminars and qualifications (such as my ASCA level 1 Strength and Conditioning course) have laid a solid platform me to pass on my knowledge to others, and get paid for it. Anyways my time at TAFE will be minimal due to the large amount of classes I wont have to do due to previous experiences and credits and i’ll be looking at spending less than 2 hours of face to face time at TAFE which is conveniently located across the road from my football field. Excited to get that underway, I’ll then be looking to join a commercial gym in order to start my PT business off as commercial gyms are like the mcdonalds of PT’s. Everyone starts off there to build their client base. Luckily I’m close with the staff at my local Anytime Fitness and I’m already in talks with them about the opportunity to work with them. Blessed is an understatement.
So yeah so far, lots is happening. I titled this post biting more than I can chew as at times I feel I often ask myself exactly that, ‘is this too much?’, I definitely feel I can balance all of it, with good time management and organisation. So far I’m in a constant battle getting things organised and most of the time I handle things relatively last minute, my memory and internal organiser have been so good for me this year though. I often have my whole schedule plotted out in my head and manage to remember it. I know its not the best way to go about things, I definitely need a journal.
This post was more of personal plotting of my current situation, something to look back on in the future and reflect. I’m hoping that everything I have planned so far goes accordingly. Notice how I haven’t mentioned a thing about meeting a female or maintaining a relationship.. that’s because I have none and no one seems to want someone as busy as me.. that or I could be fucked up and have a horrendous personality. I like to think I’m actually quite hilarious and hard working and confident. Fuck em all hahahaha
I will be the most jacked athletic individual my city has ever seen.
