What I really mean is...
I did it…

I submitted my application to grad school. I know this may not seem like a giant, big deal, but it totally is to me. I have been waiting three years, THREE YEARS, to do this, because of what I want to do. I will (hopefully) be going back to school to get my masters in administration. This has been my goal since before college. This is just one step closer to getting a Ph.D and running a college, the ultimate dream. Fingers crossed and prayers sent up, please and thank you!

My father broke my heart long before any boy had the chance to.

"Sometimes I think I’m a total failure as a parent, but I’m all they’ve got. Before Jem looks at anyone else he looks at me, and I’ve tried to live so I can look squarely back at him… if I connived at something like this, frankly I couldn’t meet his eye, and the day I can’t do that I’ll know I’ve lost him. I don’t want to lose him and Scout, because they’re all I’ve got."

Be careful what you wish for…

This statement has never proven to be more true. I have been saying I have wanted to teach high school, and as of last Friday, I got my wish. However, I am currently still teaching my classes too. As of right now, until June 12th, I am the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade English teachers. #holla #nobutreally. It is crazy and already a lot of fun. Let’s hope it stays that way. Any advice from high school teachers would be great…

Mother Nature has it coming

I swear, at this point, I am so done with winter!!! Normally, I am the girl who is alllll about the snow and cold weather-I love living in sweaters, boots, and scarves. However, if we have to add anymore time on to our school day, year, etc, I will scream. At this point, we have already added 5 minutes per school day until the end of the year, for which I am grateful. Why, you ask? 1. I have less than 60 days until testing and need all the time possible to make sure my kiddos are prepared. 2. None of my spring break was taken (praise the Almighty) and no days have been added on to the end of the school year.

With all that said, I do not need to get behind anymore than I actually am. I am trying the best I can to teach, teach, teach and getting more things thrown at me by the second. I can definitely tell that I am not in my beginning stages anymore, for I am wearing out a lot more easily than I ever did. I’m tired. I never get tired. This is NOT acceptable.

" A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl."  -Stephen Hoeller
