Chit Chat: Looking Back

Chit Chat: Looking Back
It's so hard to believe that 2015 has already started. Can you believe it's January 5th already? It's also hard to believe that this school year already has a semester over with. I feel like I have only been teaching this group of kids for a few weeks, but a whole semester is over. I guess it is true that time just flies by when you are having fun.

This past year I have had a lot of fun and a lot of great things have happened. I finished my Master's degree in literacy. It took me a few years of online classes and summer classes to finish. This was a huge accomplishment for me and a pay raise is always nice. Another work related accomplishment this past year was that I was asked to present at a math conference. I was extremely nervous but I think things went very smoothly. Still, I don't see any more presentations in my near future. I'm not one for public speaking, but it was a new experience for me.

I also did quite a bit of fun things last year. Tracy and I made it back to Florida and to New York City this year. We also started a book club with some of our best friends. There are six of us in the book club. Once a month we meet up and have fun catching up with each other, talking about the book, and munching on some delicious food. Starting the book club was a great idea. It ensures that I find time to read a new book every month, even when work is crazy hectic.

This year I also experienced my first surprise party. I was a guest at the party or throwing the party, but the party was thrown for me. My family did an excellent job in keeping things a secret. I had a huge surprise and it was a blast. I had a great time with my family and closest friends. After the great time I had, I plan to start throwing surprise parties for people now.

What great things happened to you in 2014?
