Chris Winn: Ramblings From The Road


19 March 2008

Trading Whistles For Wheels.

That's it, classroom time is over. The school term has ended. I've clocked off and hung up the official three-stripe sweat pants and put the spittle encrusted whistle back in the drawer for another day. Definitely a good feeling to finish up another block of teaching and now to fully switch my focus to the racing season ahead, with only 11 or so days till I fly out. I think in terms of looking at the bigger picture, going to uni and getting my teaching degree has been a pretty wise move, with teaching such being a flexible job, but also one that is fairly stable and in demand. I know that right now as a 24 year old (yep i had a birthday last week, snuck that under the radar!) full time teaching is not what I see myself doing. But the fact that I can still use my degree and earn some good $ and pick up work here around pursuing other goals has been pretty cool.

So my birthday was spent in a sweaty pub with a few hundred people seeing these guys. This is the second time I have seen them and holy smoke do they have such a big sound for a three piece. Very impressive and like any decent gig I left pretty much deaf, dehydrated and in need of a good lie down. Lator, cw.
