Too Happy to Snark…

I really don’t have anything remotely snarky or funny to write today because I am too busy exhaling the past 2 years of stress. Today could be the best day I’ve had in years.

First, I graduated from my credential program tonight. I had to do a 30 minute presentation, compile a massive portfolio and a crate full of evidence that yes, I kinda sorta know how to teach. I did my thing tonight, and it went amazingly well. I immediately left and had drinks and appetizers with Andrew and my good friend Chi. It was thrilling.

The other big news is that I HAVE A JOB NEXT YEAR. If you’ve read a newspaper, you know that education has been experiencing severe cuts. I received a pink slip and had been incredibly worried and stressed about getting laid off. This morning, they announced the final list, and I am not being laid off. This is obviously bittersweet, as two of my closest friends are on the list. Still, I can’t help but feel incredibly grateful.

Words fail me to express how great it is to feel the stress of a 2 year hellish program and several months of worrying evaporate into thin air on one day.

Oh, and I fit in a kick-ass workout this morning. YESSSSS!
