Two weeks

Gosh, I leave for La Ceiba in two weeks. I can hardly believe it. I should be planning the first week for my 2nd graders, but I'm posting on blogger. hmm ...

Holy moly I'm not looking forward to all the rain. But I'll take rain over snow ANY day. And I'll take hot and humid weather over cold winters any day too. I'll have to keep reminding myself that once I get down there and I'm dying of heat exhaustion and sick of the rain. haha.

Things have been pretty stressful around here. I got my car stolen two Fridays ago in Philly. So well, I am without a car for the next two weeks. Not the end of the world of course. But it's very inconvenient. And I must say that middle class suburbia does not come with good public transportation. Ah, well.

I really need to plan 2nd grade. I planned first grade. Generally at least. Nothing in depth. Goodness I have a lot of work to do. However, I get to La Ceiba on Wednesday Nov 15th and school doesn't start until Monday. So I have time. And well, I'm not exactly going to have crowds of friends waiting at my door. :) I bought Greys Anatomy season 1 and 2 yesterday and I plan on getting a few more TV show box sets online before I go. I need something to keep me busy.

Alright. I need to plan. And go to bed.

I don't really write in my blogger, because I write in my livejournal. BUT, you can post pictures on blogger, so thats my plan for now. I may choose to write random updates here though. I leave November 15th, and I am VERY excited, but nervous. The teaching is a little nerve racking, but I know that I'll be fine. I have a curriculum to follow, and books - and it's fine. But ... well, i'm still a bit nervous. And moving to another place is a bit scary too. I dont know anyone, but I have the people at my school. I'm living alone, but they assure me that it's safe and that they wouldn't pick a place for me to live that would be unsafe. And I'll make friends. I'm an independent young woman (too independent my friends may say), and am fluent in Spanish ... and love new places, etc. I'm not scared as in "Oh my god, i might not go," just the normal "blah blah blah i'm a little nervous because i'm moving far far away." But well, it'll be great. And the school is PAYING to send me home for christmas, so it'll give me a little test run, I'll come home - and then go back for a year or so. So yes. I'm very excited. And a tad overwhelmed.
