I know, I suck at this thing!

Ok, ok! I know it's been forever since I posted anything on here, but I can't help it! Between school, work, social life, APO, Children's Carnival, and observations, my life is entirely too busy.

I started Clinical Observations this semester. I love every single part about it. Last night, I was so excited about teaching I couldn't even sleep. I stayed up for several hours writing lesson plans and researching different teaching strategies. Everyday that I step into that classroom, my life gets a little better. I love the way the students look up to me and ask me questions that they assume I know the answers to. They see me as the boss. I've never had this before, and I'm having a bit of a power trip. I love teaching, and this is a huge relief for me. For some time now I have been questioning whether or not I am in the right major.... now I know. I love everything about it.

Alpha Phi Omega. Oh how we have a love/hate relationship. This is something I never expected to put so much effort into this Fraternity. But I love it. I love the people, I love the service, I love the pledges. We have 35 pledges this semester. We are literally doubling our chapter. I am so proud of where I belong.

My social life is amazing. My friends and I will be coming home on Oct. 2nd to enjoy the Chili Cook off. I can't tell you how excited I am that they are coming and I Can't tell you how excited they are to be coming.

Now I'm off to watch the Grey's Anatomy season premier.... I love you all!!

Love/hate with APO? What'a the hate part? Sounds like you love it all. Be sure that you email James with your success story.

And it does sound like you are enjoying teaching.
