I am learning to love me again, to embrace the very me-ness I possess inside, and express myself freely.
I keep secrets, a writer’s notebook, and memories of my travels.
I wish I could travel anywhere and everywhere for a year, with no regard for money (Who wants to sponsor me? haha).
I love mango sticky rice, iced chai tea lattes, pomelo, new books, blogging, sleeping in, goat cheese, dragonfruit, sharing stories, laughing, and filling my passport with stamps.
I dance ridiculously when I’m excited about something, usually making my friends laugh in the process.
I sing along with most songs, regardless of where I am and regardless of my mostly off-key voice. I have this innate gift of being able to pick up a song after hearing it a couple of times. I can’t promise you the lyrics are exactly right, but they’re close enough!
I think often about going back to school for another Master’s, possibly in school counseling or early childhood education. I’m in the research phase at the moment.
I really would like to be able to walk right now without the aide of crutches- hoping my ankle heals quickly!
I need less stuff than I thought I needed a year ago.
I should exercise more than I do, which is something I intend on starting once my ankle is healed.
I can teach preschool, despite thinking that it was something I could never do. And I’m actually pretty good at it, too.
I make a difference in the lives of my students, and they do in mine.
I always put others first; I’m working on that.
