>I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth, but I have been busier than I can remember being in many years.
I had been doing really well, confident, joyful, and positive amidst my stress and busyness of life. Until the last few days. I could go into detail about why I think that is…but what’s the point?
I woke up this morning to a very disturbing text. The brother of a friend of mine was murdered in Minneapolis by one of his tenants. I am very sad and pained to hear this. What kind of f’ed up world do we live in, I wonder sometimes? I don’t even know how to pray for Kat and her family. Please pray for the Kohorst family if you think of it.
I also seemed to be doomed to fail at my relationships with men. I have been suffering a lot in this regard. But I am trying to get my mind off of it.
In a more positive light, I am enjoying my teaching job as a part time elementary Spanish teacher. It’s crazy of course, because I have to plan the curriculum myself (with some help from other Spanish teachers in the district) but I am SO blessed to finally have a community to call my own and a principal who actually supports me and believes in me, rather than the opposite (like my last teaching job). Oh not to mention students who I actually can teach and who I enjoy teaching! God thank you for this amazing job!
Grad school is a little discouraging. I am not even sure if I want to do special education anymore and with the days getting shorter and my depression setting in again, I don’t know if I can handle the stress of school and work (not to mention all the other crap). So who knows…
I am off work today and tomorrow. It’s so nice to have a break. My roomie and I are going shopping so that’s exciting. I will try to post more…if there’s ever time!
Much love to all (even if you don’t read this)!
