*I did it, people—survived my first day of student teaching with a smile on my face. Of course, I didn’t actually teach today (just observed and passed out papers and went to an IEP), but I’m excited for the semester ahead. I completely take over all my classes tomorrow, and I’m actually really stoked. The kids are so receptive, and I think that I might enjoy teaching this age group more than I originally thought. Of course, we’ll have to see how this first week goes…
*I know I’ve been seeing people post this everywhere, but Jason Mraz’s new song “I Won’t Give Up” is really just so brilliant. It’s been ages since I’ve loved a song so much.
*So I must have had too much time on Monday (with the holiday on all) because I actually caved in and watched The Bachelor for the first time. (Yes, I’m embarrassed to admit that). I’m even more embarrassed to admit that I kinda like it. And that I dragged Matt into watching it with me.
*Already this week’s marathon training is a 180 from last week. My body and mind have been responding so much better, and it’s a good chance for me to process everything going on at the middle school. I have a feeling that my heart is about to get a lot bigger this semester, and not just from all the jogging.
*I got 3 magazines in the mail today. Happiness 🙂
*I almost forgot how cool libraries are. Matt and I went to the Logan Library for the first time in ages this past week, and I picked up some Taste of Home cookbooks I haven’t tried out yet, and we made a truly sabroso (tasty) meal on Saturday because of it. It was kind of a duh moment really–a good reminder that I don’t have to buy every book the minute I want it.
*I got $35 worth of groceries today for about $10. It was amazing.
*Now I want to go eat all of them. Mmm….
