I have a three month update here on my word for 2022 but I wanted to give y’all an update on the year so far. To be honest these past seven months have been a blur. This blur has been good and bad but well worth it.
First, I have been creating lots of stress for myself. I have decided to go back to school and try for my Master’s degree. So far, I am rocking the whole going back to school as an older adult. I have taken two classes (currently graduate gpa is 3.5!!). I am in the middle of two more classes but am holding steady at A’s in both.
Going back to school goes hand in hand with me becoming a teacher! I am currently teaching High school ELA elective classes and I have to say my soul is filled with joy even in the rough spots. Journalism, Creative Writing and Speech classes are what I am teaching.
Nervous is an understatement when I let my current job know I wanted to move into a teaching position, but honestly I shouldn’t have been. I had been in the job for almost 5 years (it didn’t seem that long). I had been encouraged to move into a classroom by my boss and fellow teachers. It took me that long to get into the season of my life where I knew this is I belong. I don’t know how long this season will be but I am soaking it all in and letting it fill my soul.
Finally, I am facing my 40s head on. My birthday is coming up and I am excited to see what these years bring. I am starting to feel like a grown up as these years are coming. So things which I will be working on during these next few years: getting our forever home, graduating with my Master’s degree, working on a book ( which I have changed so much). This is just to name a few things.
So I have been creating so much these last seven months of 2022 and I am looking forward to see what else I am going to create in the last three months of 2022. I want to hear all about what you have been doing this year! Leave me a comment, drop me an email. Let’s connect again!
