This year, I am horrified and thrilled, excited and anxious, ready and so unprepared that it will be a race to see what is going to happen.
You see, I feel as if I have been stuck for the past three years. I have been waiting as patiently as possible to make things happen. I have to admit, though, it hasn’t always been very patient. And now, things are happening. Lots of things. Exciting things.
I just received word that I did, indeed, get my NYS certification for English. It’s completely crazy. Because I know I’ll be fine and I’m so excited about it – but I’m terrified to. It’s been so long since I’ve really been able to start something new that I don’t know how to react to this at all.
I am supposed to begin my Masters program at Binghamton. But I don’t think that’s a smart decision anymore. Because I don’t really know what I want to do anymore. And I don’t want to spend money that I don’t have. I needed to make that decision three or four days ago. You will note that I haven’t made it yet.
It’s going to be a very interesting year. I’m sure that if you know me I will have tons of stories for you. And I’m sure that it’s going to be a crazy ride.
I start school today. There are two days of teacher work days – but not really because we have professional development and workshops to attend. Then, on Thursday kids come. It’s going to be a completely crazy week. But I’m excited – at least I think I am.
It’s time for a new beginning. And I hope that more new beginnings come from this one 🙂
