- My last day of school was on Friday, May 22. It was a tough day for me. Actually, the whole last week of school was kind of tough. The teachers gave me a going-away lunch which was not only thoughtful, but quite delicious. It saddened me even more to be leaving. The students made me cards and posters thanking me for a great year and telling me they would miss me. It breaks my heart knowing that I will no longer be a part of their lives and, to be honest, I'm a little jealous of the teacher that will replace me because he or she will get to spend their days with the kids I enjoyed so much. It was a wonderful school year despite all the difficult periods.
- Several days ago I took the first (and probably the hardest) step in accomplishing two of my 2009 goals. First, I registered to run in an organized race. I voluntarily signed up and paid money to run 13.1 miles. I feel absolutely crazy for doing so and the thought of participating now makes me want to puke. I feel ridiculously unprepared to run a half-marathon but I've been looking at training schedules and I definitely have a decent amount of time to train for the September race. That knowledge doesn't weaken the nervous factor. Second, I registered for a photography class. The online class, which starts in about two weeks, focuses on people photography. I’m extremely excited about all the things I will learn because I have very little knowledge of this area of photography. I’m also very nervous. Like with the half-marathon, I feel completely unprepared and even though the instructor promises that beginners can take this course, I’m still worried.
- In May, I blogged seven out of 31 days, or 22.6% of the month. While not a beautiful number, I broke my pattern of decreasing percentages. Perhaps I can bust out of the 20% range in June. That would mean I have to blog at least nine times - I'm pretty confident that I can do it.
- Tomorrow is my birthday. I can hardly believe that it's this time of year already. I also can't believe that I will be 28 years old! Where does the time go?
