I have had a huge break from teaching... I finished up my classes a couple days before all the rest of the teachers last quarter, and last week I ended up being scheduled to teach one class on tuesday morning, and then had nothing to do the rest of the week. So with the gap of time I began to doubt my abilities or my real love of what I do... "absence makes the heart grown doubtful" apparently. But after two classes thus far this week I remembered that I really like teaching. It is exciting to get to share all this information and have people get excited about it all over again. I was really pleased.

But alas I seem to be getting sick... I went to work with a slight headache and now I am feeling the pangs of exhausted/sick state. I have an easy day tomorrow so I hope I can get back on track.

Okay, so I have started my "To Do 2007" list. I make one every year... its just a list of stuff that I would like too do this year... nothing extravagant so that I set myself up for failure... mainly "buy a new car, move out, go to disneyland..." basic stuff.
But the one that is on my list that got me really excited was "taking a college class". I figure it is completely do-able. MCC offers classes during the evening for one night each week and i could easily ask to not be scheduled to teach one night each week. I am really excited. I remember how much I absolutely loved college and after not being in school for almost a year and a half, I am feeling the withdrawls. So I am going to take my last few classes this year before I transfer to ASU in the next couple of years.
I am totally excited to be sitting in a lecture class again, hearing the professor talk about history... that may make no sense to some of you, but it sounds divine to me.

The "go to disneyland" one should actually read "go to disneyland with my very rad cousin and her two awesome kids and her cool husband joe"
