Random Ramblings

I really should be working on a lesson plan.  Or several lesson plans.  But for some reason, my ability to focus has gone out the window.

I report to work on Thursday for new teacher in-service training/orientation.  And you’d think that the fact that Thursday is getting closer would motivate me to get on it.  But there are just SO. MANY. OTHER. THINGS. that I’d rather be doing right now.

Well maybe not.  I love taking this time to plan lessons, brush up on my own history knowledge, and try to prepare to be the best history teacher ever- I just can’t focus.  I think it’s because I’m really nervous- so it’s like performance anxiety or something.  At any rate, I need to get on it, because time is ticking away…and I’m only on Chapter 2…of 30.

On another note, I just completed a whirlwind mother visitation.  My mommy came and helped me get completely settled into my apartment, which of course meant saying things like “Why did you put this here?” or “Don’t you think that you need to get ___________” and “I’m not saying you have to do this, but if this were my apartment, I would _________________.”  With her help, my apartment is now a cozy little home complete with a microwave, toaster, and vacuum cleaner.  THANKS MOM!

I’m starting to get used to the idea of living in Florida- at least for right now.  I’m a big believer in making where you are where you want to be.  And, I think the change is quite welcome for me.  However, I will say that I do need to venture out and do the things that people do to meet people.  I started the church visitation process (another post completely), but if there are any South Floridians out there that know of some nice adult things going on…feel free to let me know.

Until then- I’m going back to lesson planning.  Be encouraged 🙂
