How can you LOVE and HATE something all at the same time? This is how I feel
about change which is coming up in the next couple of months for me. My life has been somewhat defined by change, yet somehow I still have a hard time with it. I know I will adjust and things will be GOOD, but they will be DIFFERENT and that's the part I have a hard time with. Even though I have said goodbye countless times to people that are very important to me throughout my life, it never gets easier. I don't deal with it well. One hard part about the upcoming change for me, is that I am the one being left behind, I'm usually the one that leaves, weird. Decisions are usually involved in change as well, I have a hard time with decisions and I am going to have to make some...
On the other hand I do love change, the exciting possibilities, dreams being realized, new people and places!

the simple

So I sit here at work...I like to get here early, well I like to get most places early. I'm cutting out these pronunciation game cards for my students and I have decided...
~I like cutting up or out things, I find it therapeutic, something mindless to do as you think. As a teacher I have spent much time cutting out things, especially when I taught in an elementary school. I also like to do crafty things which involves cutting things up or it should and is something I don't really do here often.
~Another therapeutic activity for me I find especially on a beautiful sunshiney day like this, is to drive with the windows down while playing your music very loud. Some singing along might just be involved with this :)

Sidenote: If you have a chance listen to OneRepublic their new album, Waking Up. I am obsessed with it, the music is amazing! Also, you have to listen to it loud and in your car, it really adds to it, or you can just ride with me in my car sometime to have a listen!

Sugar Free

I made it!! One week without sugar, to clarify, it wasn't complete sugar. It was basically dessert, candy, sweet breakfast foods, anything of that sort. I wasn't sure if I could do it or make it especially when I realized that this would be one of the weekends where I have class and basically depend on sugar to get me through and am tempted by the chocolate. Take that, cadbury eggs, or not to mention the various cakes, cookies, woodys that was offered to me, you did not win! To celebrate I am going to go buy a cadbury creme egg, my favorite candy of all time!

I came across this quote in my studies on TCKs (third culture kids), the subject of which I am writing my capstone on for my masters. This quote was used to help describe them and their identity.

"I am a part of all that I have met."

It made me stop and reflect and think on it for a bit...I like it.
