What's Up Peeps?

I know I've been MIA for a little bit

My bad

I've been busy.....doing....

Working Way Too Hard

School started 9 weeks ago. I've been subbing for a teacher on maternity leave. I've been doing everything she would normally do (even though I'm not paid to do that). Now  the regular teacher is back and I have to give up her classes. I didn't think I would be so attached but I love her students. I'm invested. It's going to be hard to step back. I'm back to subbing for whomever is in need. 

Discovering that I should get certified to teach English.
 I am certified to teach History and I love it but I've discovered that History teachers NEVER retire. History teachers are the most unemployed of all teachers. (Why didn't someone tell me this before??) Last year I long-termed subbed in a ELA class and now I just finished subbing for a ELA class. Teaching English is fun and I'm damn good at it.

Studying to certify to teach English
I'm taking my test tomorrow. I've blogged about my anxiety and now I'm wishing for anti-anxiety meds. Meanwhile, I'm trying all my techniques to try to relax. Wish me luck.

Cutting my hair
For the first time ever I've cut my hair super short. I have a TWA (teenie-weenie afro). I've been playing around with the idea for awhile. I wanted to take off my relaxed ends but I was scared of having short, completely natural hair. What do I do with it? Actually I still don't know. I've been watching a bunch of YouTube videos (what did we ever do before YouTube?) hoping to replicate some hair styles.

Writing two blog posts
...but never actually posting them. I know, I know.  You'll see them soon. (see I didn't completely abandon you).
