Continuing with that list from Buzzfeed, I decided to skip to #7.
7. What are some fears that you had at the beginning of the year that you overcame?
Mostly work stuff. I guess it being my third year teaching, I gave up on the little things that irked me. I made myself stop caring about the being so motherly to my students. After being a babysitter/nanny for so long, I ended up taking that with me into teaching. I was so accommodating to my students. It took so much energy from me to do that, that I ended up not caring anymore (not in a bad way). I can finally say that I heard it before, so there’s really no excuse as to why someone doesn’t have their work.
Right now I’m sitting in our dining room listening to my parents, aunts, and uncles just talk. We had a prayer service at our house to pray for my maternal grandmother’s soul. We had a bunch of people over, and even had people drive from New York. It started at 2pm and it’s now almost midnight.
I want to sleep…previous post: Goodbye, 2015
