ten things tuesday...

Ten random things:

1) I feel like I'm being meeting-ed to death. Negotiations, association, faculty and other school-related meetings are constant the past couple of weeks.

2) I've been watching too much junky tv. I'm glad American Idol starts tonight so I can get into a regular watching routine.

3) Cookies are good. Particularly when they're slightly under-done and soft.

4) Last week was a hard week. Getting the students back into the swing of school, after vacation--and several of them whined and complained (ok, they actually bitched and moaned) about doing work. I felt demoralized and discouraged. It was awful.

5) There are moments when I feel like I've hit my stride, professionally. When things are clicking along and it seems like things are manageable.

6) There are moments I know I'm not doing the job I was meant to do. I still haven't figured out what my "it" job would be, but I don't think this is it.

7) I just got a couple of new CDs. I'm excited to listen to them.

8) I wish I could wear my comfy, loungy clothes to school. But, the first thing I do when I get home is change.

9) Positive feedback would make the atmosphere at school a lot better. There's a lot of stress, especially now that we're getting near mid-years and the end of the quarter.

10) I'm getting my Christmas/Valentine's/St. Patrick's gift to myself on Monday--a remote car starter! My last car had one and I reallllllllly miss it. So, I'm getting one installed Monday.

Yeah - which CDs?

I LOVE slightly underdone cookies! Mmmmmm!

I feel like I'm incredibly blessed in that I am doing a job that I ADORE. The guy who said "find something you love to do and you'll never work a day in your life" had it exactly right. I wish the same for you.
