It's officially over. My last day student teaching was Thursday, and I turned in my final grades Friday. And then I promptly bawled my eyes out for half an hour. It breaks my heart to think I won't see these kids graduate, or even finish the year. Is this how it's going to be every year?
I will be back for a bit, to complete my thesis research, and after I turned down a job offer from them as an aide, I committed to volunteering at least once a week. Now onto the really hard part: finding a job.
However, as much as that is on my mind, I am not really worried about it. I took spring break off from work, and will be moving (a more immediate concern) and just enjoying the time to myself. I'm planning a massage, a mani/pedi, and some spring time bike riding down the greenbelt. I'm so excited!
And every day, I wake up knowing I will find out one other way I'm incredibly blessed. I love this time of year!
