i am now done with one sixth of my masters program. whew. i cannot believe how agonizingly long the last five school days have been (and the weekend in between when i had to do all of the work!), but i am so thankful that it’s over.
>What a good pick for my first book of the summer! I just finished reading Love on a Dime by new author, Cara Lynn James. The last day of school, while amazing, is always a long day and requires extra patience. While most definitely given that supernaturally, it also came from the excitement that I had a new book waiting for me when I got home. I was not disappointed!
>what a beautiful day the last day of school always is. it was, quite literally, the most beautiful day i’ve seen in a long time. the sun rose and i was already awake as it crested the hill by our house. with a joyful heart, i hopped in the shower, threw on a dress (last day of school rejoicing attire), and sped on over to the high school i teach (taught) at to give fifty freshmen (now sophomores) a final exam on Romeo & Juliet. as they took their test, i frantically graded a few last essays that some (very late) students turned in. and now, at 3pm, i am DONE! i’ve turned in my keys at both of my schools, i’m praying that i’ll be at just one school next year, and i’m ready for summer! in honor of the impending summer, i spent both last night and the night before reading books instead of grading essays. i stopped by the library yesterday and got six books (i only let myself get two normally). i’m pretty excited!
