Turning Over a New Leaf

     Good afternoon everyone! Been a little while since I last blogged, but I do have some updating to do. First and foremost, I have 18 more school days until I am done with undergrad forever and I could not be more excited! Secondly, I finally finished and submitted my final project/paper for my professional seminar. 57 pages later, I am one happy camper! Now all I have to worry about is making sure I don't miss any days of school, and I think I can do that! Thirdly, I finally... 6 months later... found out about Teach for America. Unfortunately I did not get accepted but that is ok, I consider it to be quite an accomplishment to have made it as far as I did in such a prestigious program, and while I wish I would have been accepted, I know it just was not the right path for me and I will find something else that I know I will love and succeed in. Now that that phase of waiting is over, I am submitting more applications to various school systems and will just be waiting around and hoping for a great job.
      I have 8 more days left with my 4th graders in Mr. Marks' class. I sure am going to miss them, while sometimes they really tested my patience, they truly were a wonderful class and I am so glad I had so long with them. After my 8 days are up in here, I will be moving to a functional skills class for my last 10 days. I am excited and nervous about that move, but I know I will definitely learn a lot in that short time. Another big change coming up is my moving home. I am moving out of my current house and back in with the parentals for a few months. I figured it would be better to move home and try and save some money up, and the money I could save by living at home for 2 months really will make a difference. I plan to hopefully move somewhere new by July :)
     Overall, life is fantastic right now and I have so many wonderful things coming up in the future. I am excited to get this job search going, and seeing what I am going to be doing for the next few years as a true grown-up. I hope everyone is having a wonderful April thus far (not suffering from allergies like me). I will update soon, or whenever something update worthy comes up! Have a wonderful rest of the week!
