36

December 15th, 2011 at 06:03 pm

Well here I am less than 4 years away from having to say 4- something. Oh well, I'm not bothered by it. Smile

Looking at where I was ten years ago - my fifth year of teaching down in the valley of Texas, barely making it financially and not really happy with my life. Now I'm in the deserts of New Mexico in my first year as a librarian. Still not making much money (less than I did in 2001!!) but so much more knowledgable about how to handle my finances. The best thing though is that I'm really happy with my chosen profession. The only link in the chain is not really having any sit down in real life chit chat heart to heart friends. I should be used to that by now though. Phone calls and email doesn't keep a friendship alive for too long.

Sorry for going meloncholy here. I just watched the movie New Years Eve and it got me thinking. I'm glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews.

My food just arrived, so I better go. Tell more later. Smile

    Isn't it funny seems so many regulars have Nov/Dec birthdays around here. My kind of people I guess. I particularly noticed this year.

    Thanks everyone!

    And that should have said *kink* not link.

    I had a former student of mine who friended me on fb a few months ago post the sweetest message today. She thanked me for instilling the love of reading in her at a young age. Funnily enough, she was one of my students ten years ago!! Big Grin

    Happy Birthday! I'm a teacher and you seem like the perfect friend to meet up with afterschool every week to share coffee with, or to run into the library and share something funny that happened, or to come over on a Saturday and help you give Kari a bath... What I'm trying to say is, you seem like perfect friend material to me! Smile

    Be patient, it takes time to make real friends in a new place. Anything good takes time!

    Happy Belated Birthday! I am a couple days behind again on reading the blogs. I hope it was a great day for you. And it really won't be much of a change when that first number is a 4 and not a 3.
