this in-between time
How does it happen that its June already? It seems as though I just celebrated the New Year, wrote my intentions on a piece of paper, then taped it on my journal. I'm looking at my list now and I am nowhere near accomplishing half of them.
Last week, one of my schools had a year-end musical and the students sang all songs by The Beatles. It was great. I was so touched when I heard the first notes of the song Imagine, watching our 8th graders all dressed up, strumming their guitars and looking all serious up on stage. I know they can be a pain sometimes, but for the most part, they are really good kids and I am so proud of them. Their hearts are in the right place.
By the end of summer, 3 of my friends will leave to teach English abroad for a year or two. Its funny how everyone I know are moving somewhere these days. I'm excited for them, having the courage to make a decision that will ultimately change the course of your life is very liberating, but at the same time, I can't help but feel sad since I'm the one left behind. Ah, I guess I will just have to visit them then. (Spain, Japan, and Korea doesn't sound too bad, eh?)
Today, its so cold and gray here. I'm nursing a cup of green tea and eating oatmeal with cocoa and lots of berries. I have no big plans for the summer yet. How about you?
