Time tends to fly.... fast!

So I realized the other day that it has been a year since I last updated this lovely blog of mine. Man time tends to fly by so fast and things happen that you would never expect. This past December I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Special and Elementary education. This semester I am teaching special ed. at a nearby elementary school. The class consists of students ranging from kindergarten to 6th grade. It is super fun but it can be stressful at times. Living back at home has been an experience. Not the living at home part itself but the lack of social life. It seems like there is no one around which can be a good thing and bad thing. I am currently in the process of trying to decide what to do next in life. It is such a scary but oh so exciting moment in my life. I have many doors just waiting to be opened. I know that behind each is a wonderful adventure awaiting me. I have been contemplating serving a mission and I have actually started my papers. I am looking into other school districts (all over arizona) to teach and I have also looked into masters programs (either educational psychology, Occupational therapy, or education administration) . It is such a huge decision so I am trying to make the perfect one. Life throws unexpected surprises at us but that is the reason it is oh so perfect. So cherish life and its twists and turns but most importantly don't confuse your path with your destination. Remember life is beautiful and love that you get to find joy in the journey. :)

So I have pretty much come to the conclusion that I am the worst blogger. I often find myself hopping from blog to blog until I end up being a creeper and reading about peoples' lives that I don't even know. Then I get sad because my blog hasn't been updated in ... months.... So here we go :) This semester seems like it has been flying by. In less than 1 month I will kiss ASU goodbye and not see it again until I am walking across the stage to get my beautiful maroon and gold diploma. If you can't tell I am quite excited. You may be wondering why I wont be seeing ASU until then. I am moving back to Safford to student teach. Now this decision has a good side and bad side. Good side: I will be saving money. Bad side: the social life.. ehh whatev. I am really excited to be going home. I can't wait to be out of the fast paced city life and back to the calm-enjoying every moment- life of a small town even though I will miss all my friends in the valley. But no one said I can't visit right?

Senior Year

Hello Senior Year!
This is my last semester at ASU. I have mixed feelings about it but I know that I am ready to finish school. I will be student teaching in the fall probably back at home. My first day of classes was yesterday. I had a teacher tell us that we should not plan on having a social life this semester. Goodbye friends see you in 110 days.. yes I counted. I am so excited for these next few months. It is going to be a lot of work but so worth it. Here's to a great year and a great education.
