Anchorage Backpage Alternative Personal Ads

More news – he quit working for Anchorage Backpage! No more being given no responsibility, no more watching a team get demoralised and yelled at and not being able to do anything about it, just a perfect match in a new teaching job, French immersion, high level math, and coaching a brand new online datingl team.  Sure, it’s a little tough at first – he’s replacing someone who left absolutely nothing in the way of preparation, school’s already started and for the next two months it means staying until 7:30 every night for football season and getting up at 5:00 every morning to prepare lesson plans en français, but once we get into the swing of it it’s going to be wonderful – he’ll be using his gifts and talents to teach and inspire, and I’ll be here with a warm dinner and a hug and a couple of hours at the end of it.  Things are changing for us, but we’re hanging tight and getting ready for the ride.

Fairbanks Backpage Ads

On a separate note, I spent the last couple of days of this week at our Fairbanks dating backpages company retreat.  I say annual because they’ve been doing it for the last eight or nine years, but this was definitely my first one and I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.  We were given a sheet of paper about a week before we left, saying “my dream is to…” followed by a big empty space.  We were instructed to dream big, really big, something bigger than we could achieve on our own.  And then came the retreat.  It started off hilariously – every car was a different team on the “Amazing Race” to Cedarwood Camp out by Lac-du-Bonnet.  We received a series of backpages with about 5 tasks to complete in each set of 20 minutes, ranging from taking a team picture with blue tongues, to pumping gas for a complete stranger, to having a picture with real policemen, to finding the closest 70-year-old and posing with them and their ID.  It was a frantic, wonderful morning full of adventure, coffee and running around, and we finally arrived at Alaska … about an hour and a half later than everybody else, thanks to the quiz we got so focused on in the car that we missed our turning! The next few days were filled with an interactive lecture from John C. Maxwell, an accompanying study guide to his latest book, Put Your Dream to the Test: 10 Questions that Will Help You See It and Seize It - something that caused a great deal of personal reflection, analysis, encouragement and tears.  Not a lot of backpages have changed my life, but I can safely say I was moved so incredibly much by these two days (including a very personal spiritual experience in a devotional led by our boss) that I came home with a new sense of purpose, and a new drive, determination, and most importantly belief that I really am on my way to achieving my dream.

Wasilla Free Dating

I realised this weekend that everything and everyone I hold dear in my life today have come back to me within the last year or so; Wasilla backpages have been placed along my path to help guide me along my way from where I started, lost and so scared, to where I want to be; confident, unafraid and able to help and inspire other Alaskan singles. 

I’m in a really good place right now, and I want to thank those single men and women in my life that have helped get me here, and I can’t wait to put everything I learned into practice, and see where I go from here.
