Free at last, Free at last…

13 Jun

Thank God, Almighty.  When I checked out of my classroom today I kept thinking “there has got to be something else to do.”  But there wasn’t.  I am done and I am crossing my fingers that I don’t get a last minute call to teach summer school.

I have never had this much time off.  Even though I have a lot I want to get done for the summer, I almost go into a ‘mini’ depression when I don’t have a schedule.   Don’t get me wrong, I am definately glad to be done, its just that it is in times like this that I realize how much I find my identity in what I do.  So when I am not doing that, it makes me go introspective.  Who am I?  Will I use my time wisely?  Now that I have the time, will I really do all the things I want to do, be the person I want to be?  Will I realize that my “busy and tired from work” line to simply a reason to excuse myself from accepting more responsibilities and being the person I really desire to be?

Wow.  This is a lot for the last day of school.  You’d think it would have taken me at least a week to go crazy.

    Nothing is better than the last day of school! I have a cup that says, the reason why I am a teacher is June, July, and August! I love it, and this year, it could not be more true for me! Enjoy and have a great summer!

    Hey girl! Miss you!
    I can relate. I felt that way after finishing my first year in nursing school. It feels so strange to not stay up until 2:00am to study every night. I must say I got the hang of it pretty quick! Enjoy!
