"What the hell do I do with this."

    One day, I was hiking with my boyfriend (Future Hubby) and he looked down the hill we were climbing and said "Hey lets go see what graduate programs they have at that college." (Quinnipiac). They had a few, but the 1 year MAT (MA in Teaching)sounded good. I had no plans, so I went with the flow. I still wasn't sure I wanted to teach until my first year. Once I spent some time with my students in my own classroom, I was hooked. It was like being on stage every day, grabbing my audience and taking them where I wanted to go.

    My husband sometimes asks if I want to become an Admin...I answer, "Hell no, you get all of the bad stuff with none of the joy." The students bring the joy.
    I got my masters in Administration and right before graduation decided... oh hell no..LOL

    I told my husband last night is all these people my calendar age that look so old and act so old that make me feel like I'm old. And then I'm like, no, they decided to be old, I am not done with being young yet!

    I feel old with the birthday being tomorrow. I've notice this in my 20's and am noticing the same with my 30's as well. I was fine up until turning the age of 25 and 35 respectively. I had the same issue each year until 30 hit and was fine again until 35. I'm not wanting 37 to hit at all tomorrow, whatsoever. I'm not sure if this is normal or not. All I know is that if I could hide in bed all day tomorrow, I would.

    For me, age is just a number just like my scale weight is a number. They are information, sure, but very incomplete information. Both numbers say very little about who I am or what I accomplish. And I have very little control over either one apparently. I can do things that will help me make it to my next birthday and down to the next weight goal. And I can try to make sure I dont do things that will prevent that. But that is about it. No point dwelling on either number.

    Eh, what is age? I'm 37 going on 13. All is good Geo. Live it up.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug
