The Push and the Pull

Getting my education degree has been one of the best decisions I have very made (of course Tina was involved in that decision as well). I have grown so much over the years. Met so many people. Made so many friends. Learned so much. I have experienced stress and pain because of this but I have also found talents that I'm not sure I realized I had. And this is because there have been people who have come into my life that convinced me that I had these talents. Now to hunker down for four more months.
I'm kind of nervous like everyone else about getting a job after I graduate. I know there are lots of people looking. I think if I've learned one thing over the years is to just take life as it comes and don't stress what I can't do anything about.
Ok so Tina and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary last week. Wow!! I'm so blessed to have someone as wonderful as Tina. I'm not sure we love each other more than ever, I just think we're better at showing it in ways the other person needs it shown. That's been the biggest lesson learned I think.
Happy New Year. This year I resolve not to make any resolutions. I just want to be a person who cares.

This is the sound of me under stress. I'm not going to lie. These have been a tough couple of weeks. But I have learned so much about myself that I wouldn't trade it for anything. I think understanding and knowing oneself is important if one is going to improve themselves in the future. Today was especially trying. And not because bad things were happening. Just a lot of stuff was happening. I'm learning how to deal with these things and to understand what I can and cannot control. I'm glad I have a good role model to work with. He cares a lot about his students and has a passion for what he is teaching. What better place to be for a student teacher. Fortunately and hopefully, in three months I'll be able to drop that tag and maybe it will just be......teacher. Wouldn't that be nice.
