Wednesday the 9th and other such ramblings

28 Apr

On Wednesday the 9th, I have to provide a portfolio of my accomplishments and demonstrations of ability to teach.

Oh it’s nerve racking trying to decide what things to put in it; what is cool to me might not be the best demonstration of what I have done.   Yikes, who knew.  Of course I have put myself into a career path in which I will constantly be judged and judged by the work of others. 

Today is my last official activity with Mortar Board as a Senior.  I have been part of this Honor Society for 4 years.  It has been a wonderful, educational experience that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.   Today I will help orient the new members and help them discover their own desire to put their efforts into this organization.  I feel like I am passing on a torch. 

I can’t wait to have a few months in which I can work on some art, weed my garden, sleep in, and prepare for Prague.  It’s almost here, that moment when the next phase of my life begins.  The closer it gets, the more anxious I get and the more excited I get.  I am sure all of my peers are feeling the same things! 

I will be teaching Belly Dance classes this summer with the help of my friend Leyla!  So stoked for that.  I am practicing as much as possible now, but I will be a dancing fool after school is out 🙂 

The fruits of my labors are almost ripe and I can see the harvest in front of me.  What I love is that at this time of ripening I am also watching my children become such amazing people.  They are each discovering who they are and finding their paths.  I think this part is what makes teenagehood ok in the long run. 

Enough rantings for today, off I go to play games with a bunch of adults!
