A Quick Ramble

Last night I participated in an online author chat with a book club in California. I'd been both looking forward to it and dreading it, not sure what it would be like. But I'm all about leaping into new opportunities this year, and there's still four months left of 2018! So at 8:30 p.m., I curled my hair, touched up my makeup, donned dangly earrings, and changed into Hello Kitty pajama pants for the meeting. Something about wearing fuzzy pajama pants made me feel much more comfortable. 

The kids all thought the whole situation was quite interesting. "Why is your hair curled? Why are you wearing lip gloss? Are you going somewhere in the pajamas?"

Anyway, I banned them from the area and set up my laptop, where I encountered the sweetest group of women. We talked and laughed for more than an hour, and eventually I did show them the pajama pants. After we said goodbye, I started thinking that I would love to be a part of a book club like that. I may have to find a way to make it happen.

In other news, I have taken yet another leap: I've applied for a full-time teaching position at the community college I've been working at for the past two years! I have no idea what the process will look like or even if I will be a competitive candidate, but I'm putting myself out there with the hope and prayer that God will set me there if it's where I should be. 

Only 12 days left of glorious summer. I wish I could say I'm soaking up the days, but I am kind of looking forward to the start of a new school year. I'm craving routine and some kind of structure. 

On that note, I'm signing off for now. Two more days of summer teaching, and I'm definitely in need of some shut-eye.
