Today is the first day of school for many, many people around these parts. Teachers make their way to work, ready to greet a new year of new kiddos. Their classroom is prepared, their syllabi are printed, outfits freshly ironed, giant smiles everywhere! Students make the bleary eyed journey, too. Excited and nervous – will they have a class with their BFF? Lunch? Is the famous Mr. Becker their math teacher?? 🙂
Welp. This year is different for me. This is my first year, since joining the full-time workforce 9 years ago, that I have not had a first day of school. But you know what’s weird? I’m not even sure I want one at the moment.
While I deeply cherish the memories I made in the classroom [and out!], I think that my recent situation with bullying may have turned me off to the politics that come with education. Perhaps one day I shall return – maybe one day soon. But for now, on this first day of school, I am off to Europe. I am flying to Paris with my parents. Then Prague. And Madrid.
Oooh I'm excited for the pictures!!!! Have all the fun, exciting, awesome times.
So you come all the way to Europe but you don't come to the UK. So rude! have an amazing trip lovely lady!!
