Getting married, y’all. Currently just engaged and wrapping my brain around things. But… dang. Life is funny, isn’t it?
NO SERIOUSLY. THAT HAPPENED. *squeeeee*
Best news? I was all, “oh my gosh Mom please say you’re willing to be generous with your time because I have no idea what I’m doing with this whole planning concept” and her response was something like “I’ll help you as much as you’ll let me!”
And this is why God gives us mothers. Among other reasons.
One of my brothers had a birthday this week, along with a cousin. Dad’s is this weekend. Sister-in-law,
boyfriend fiance, and I think 4 more cousins have birthdays this month. What is it with y’all Septembers?! Which reminds me… I once read some fascinating research on when the most popular time to be born is, and I think it was specific to the USA. I was in the ‘least common’ month [woo, short February!] but if I remember correctly September and October were crazy popular.
I should librarian and try to find that again.
I’ve met a bunch of my students already (probably a good 300 so far), and will meet even more today and the beginning of next week. So far so good. As I was leaving school yesterday, I heard someone yell “HEY! LIBARIAN!” [yes, the word is librarian; I'm spelling phonetically here, and this pronunciation is not limited to the younger set] and a girl I’d met earlier in the day ran up the hall and told me to have a good night. Honestly, I was just excited she’d met me earlier in the day and remembered who I was! That’s more than I can say for myself. I have no idea how I’m going to learn about 700ish student names. Seriously.
Anyone ever go to Zumba? I’ve gone twice. I have no idea what’s going on and try to fake it, which half the class is also doing, so it works out alright. It’s actually a lot of fun, if you don’t think about it. The key is not thinking about it. And also not looking in the wall of mirrors.
No one is visiting me this weekend. [Last weekend and the next 2 weekends I'll have guests]. So, with my loads of free time, I’m… taking a mandatory 8hr CPR/AED/First Aid class. It starts at 8AM on Saturday morning and I had the pleasure of paying to attend! Apparently VA changed the state requirements for new teacher licenses this summer, so before I can even submit my application this has to be on the record.
On the upside, this means when the class is over ALL my requirements for a teaching license will be met and it’ll get shipped off the state, so I can eventually call myself legit! In the meantime…well, I’ll be teaching anyway.
It’s 7:54, which means I managed this in 14 minutes. W00t! —-> For more Quick Takes, visit Conversion Diary!
