This exciting Sunday spent with family is just what I needed after a long stressful week. I was feeling overwhelmed with homework, work, apartment/house hunting, and attempting to have a social life. Writing eleven lesson plans, a ten page paper, and numerous other papers and assignments is a little bit intimidating. Whenever I start stressing out, I slow down and remember why I am in the program in the first place. I want to be a teacher. I want to make a difference in the lives of children. It is then that I realize all of the late nights and early mornings, all of the homework, and all of the missed social engagements will be worth it. I can do this!
This week’s lessons:Slow down and enjoy the little things (like a Seahawks win!). In tough times, remind yourself why you are where you are and remember it will be worth it in the end. Tough times never last, but tough people do!
