Today I am missing this....

My classroom, the kids, the crazy parents, the people I worked with, the comfort it all brought. I'm missing it all- today. It was home for 3 years. I loved it. Not every minute of it but I loved it. Life was so much simpler. I knew where I was going. I was good at my job. I had a plan. My life was pretty complete.

It's been 2 1/2 years since I left teaching and I haven't had many days where I REALLY miss it. But today is one of those days. Not sure why though. Maybe it's because I'm super stressed about school. Maybe its because the boy who I thought was boy wonder isn't so wonder. Maybe its because I'm one semester away from graduating and for the first time in my life, I have no plan after that. Life is complicated right now. I know its complicated for a reason but for whatever reason, I can't figure it out. It's a scary feeling.

So... I'm missing this.

I bet you were a fantastic teacher, Catherine! I hope your semester ended well. It's hard not having a set-in-stone life plan when you're used to it? I do know you will figure it all out (easy for me to say, right?). I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and your final semester is amazing!!! The grass is always greener--- I think what you are doing is so great. I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to be so close to getting a J.D.!!!!!! Yahoo.!!!! Love you.
