Talking Did I Mention...

I got a new job? Yep, a real, grown-up job. Starting next Tuesday, I'm a teacher. I've never worked in a school before and I don't have proper certification, but they liked me, they really liked me! I'll be teaching different classes in an elementary school computer lab. I'm so darn excited (and nervous). No more part-time baking/barista-ing for me. Woo hoo!

And how does this relate to weight loss surgery you might ask? Well, I know I didn't have the guts pre-surgery to go sell myself to an interview committee for a position I don't have much qualification for. I do now! I did it!

Life is good and just keeps getting better.

First year teaching can be so overwhelming and yet so much freaking fun!

I'm an aide (I have to get MA before I teach deaf education). Last year was my first year. I was so happy to not have the full responsibility and yet so glad that my teachers treated me more like a team teacher with coming up with lesson plans etc (cuz I wanted to learn). I loved it.

Chickadee, I must have missed this somehow. Congratulations! I mean on the new job, but even more on your changes within that have allowed you the confidence to move so positively forward.

Thanks everyone! I'm all atwitter with nerves. I had to go shopping for clothes since I've spent the last three years in jeans and t-shirts. Where does one find soft denim jumpers with no shape and Winnie the Pooh embroidered over the bosom anyway?

Chickadee, I went through the had to buy clothes thing. Then when the season ended I couldn't convince myself to spend money on new stuff. Now I'm losing weight and the things that fit best are the old jeans I saved. Go figure.
