Stole this!

My ex... is my ex for a reason.

Maybe I should... do the dishes :-)

I love... new school supplies and books each Fall.

People would say... I need more confidence.

I don't understand...a lot. I'm always asking questions or clarifying.

When I wake up in the morning... I'm very grumpy and need a few seconds to get going.

I lost... my favorite pairs of earrings and its very sad. St. Anthony, please help!

Life is full of... surprises.

My past is something... I wish I could re-live so I could change a lot of things.

I get annoyed when... people don't follow the rules.

Parties are... stressful. All those people I don't know!!!

I wish... I had my first teaching job already!

Dogs... are the best. I love my bulldog.

Cats... are mean!

Tomorrow... I'm going to my mom's and we have dinner and a movie at the Seeds.

I have a low tolerance for... stupid drivers.

If I had a million dollars... I'd buy a house and travel abroad :-)

I'm totally terrified of... my interview Tuesday!

Feel free to STEAL for your posting pleasure!

Stupid rain

Since its so crappy out and there isn't much to do, I figured I would write an update. This week has been really slow on the teaching applications so I've been entertaining myself in other ways. I've been reading chick lit all week and took some time to go shopping yesterday. I bought this cute dress from Banana for my upcoming wedding this weekend (it looks better on me than in this picture):

I also picked up a pair of cute shorts (seersucker) for Lake George next weekend:

Also, I went golfing last weekend with Dougie and my MIL to Green Meadow. It was only my second time using the new clubs and my first time at this course, but it went really well. My chips were solid and my putting has improved a bit. Now I need to get used to my irons off the tee and in the fairway. I find I'm pushing to the right so I need to work on that before our trip to Queensbury CC at when we are on vaca.

Anyway, just wanted everyone to know I'm still alive and if any interesting happens, I'll let you know!

I made it!!!!!

Just in case people were wondering, I did survive student teaching. I actually came out feeling pretty good, although it was so much work and I cried almost every night. And I even miss it, which is crazy to think.

Now that school is out and I've graduated from the teaching program, I'm focusing on finding a job. So far its been a tough go. I heard from two schools but they are on the edge of my commuting area so I turned those opportunities down. I expanded my search to private schools, including Catholic high schools, so we'll see how that works. I'm trying to stay positive, but it is so hard to when some of my classmates already have positions. I'm happy for them, but at the same time, I feel jealous and bitter. I did so well academically that I figured I would have a job by now. Instead I've applied to 24 schools and I still haven't interviewed anywhere.

Dougie has been great about this whole thing. He wants me to focus on me right now and lean on my faith, which I pretty much put on the back burner this whole year. So today I went to the Shrine in Lowell for confession and Mass and did feel better. And I just need to remember to trust in the Lord and that whatever His will is, it will work out for the best.

I've been spending most days reading (for fun!!!) and spending time with Rosie, who I missed so much when I was in school. It is nice to return to everyday life.. taking care of the house and making dinner.

Anyway, its a lame update, but I figured some people would want to know I'm still here and that I made it. Thanks for checking in!
