First (Real) Day of Work

Tomorrow is my first day of work at my new school and I am freaking out. It's like I'm a little kid going to kindergarten over here! My stomach is in knots and my hands are a little clammy. Yikes. I need to relax! The kids don't come back to school until Monday, so this week will involve a lot of introductions, meetings, and preparations. I am most excited to organize and decorate my office. I will definitely take before and after pictures!

The sad part about the start of the school year is that I won't be able to post or twitter at work. However, I didn't post that often during the summer anyway (something about summer and blogging don't seem to mesh well for me) so I guess just my twitter feed will suffer. I am hoping to get back into a nice blogging rhythm once fall hits.

Anyway...in preparation for tomorrow I am planning to paint my nails a neutral color, lay out my clothes, and pack my bags before I attempt to go to bed. I probably won't get much sleep, but hopefully my adrenaline will keep me going tomorrow!

Wish me luck!

  9. Hey good luck. You could always text in to twitter from your phone under your desk so the students can't notice. Ha ha. It wil be like you're the naughty kid up the back thinking she can't be seen. :)
