My life was threatened if I didn't update our blog, so here goes:
Friday, May 23rd, was my last day with students at PCHS. Super excited about that, and go figure, so were all the students. I "graduated" my first seniors. It was weird but really cool at the same time. I got to wear my school colors on a hood with my gown for the first time. Luckily, no mortar boards were required of us.
I have post-planning (really, really don't want to go) on Tuesday and Wednesday. I will be performing for Peach County Idol for some moolah. It's my last hurrah at the high school. On Wednesday at 3pm, I will be done with Peach County High School FOREVER!! This past year has been the roughest I've ever experienced and 99% of that was because of my job. Now that I'm almost done, I wake up every morning excited to see what's next. It's pretty awesome, because I haven't felt this way in 9 months.
However, through all the crap that I've endured this year, I continue to learn one lesson over and over: This too shall pass. I looked it up on Biblegateway.com and it is actually not in the Bible. It is simply a Hebrew saying. Click HERE for the Jewish folktale. Also, I'm not the only one struggling at any one time, nor is my situation as dire as I think it is. God has been good by bringing us through this first year.
Now--CELEBRATION! I tell Brian almost every day that he is worth me taking the job at Peach County, and, that despite my job, we have had a great first year together. That's right, we will celebrate our 1 year anniversary on June 2nd. We're going to Florida on Friday, May 29th to live it up on the beach. I can't wait to get some sun and surf...and eventually knock myself in the head with my boogie board. Yes, I do it everytime I go to the beach. I always manage to suck down a little ocean water.
Speaking of the ocean, my mom and dad let me watch Jaws at an early age, and the next time, we visited my cousins in Florida, I wouldn't go into the water. Hmmmm...wonder why? Thankfully, I'm over it.
