Hello, peeps! It has been a while since I've been around the book blogging world. If any one of you are still visiting my blog and wondering what has happened to me, well here's an update:
I've been super busy trying to balance my new career life as a resource specialist. I knew this job was not easy but I was not expecting how much it was going to affect me mentally. Do I enjoy my new job? Yes and no. I love my students but I dislike the paperwork. In fact, I am head over heels with paperwork that I don't have that much time to teach. I rely heavily on my substitute and my instructional aide to hold the fort for me, especially when I go to meetings.
It has been a challenge. I have not had the chance to read, hike, or dance. Sometimes I feel like I have lost my true self as I keep traveling on this new journey of my life. I know the first year of teaching is tough, but I have a feeling that my workload will not lessen for a while. I just pray that with time, I would be able to balance it better.
However, I am truly blessed. I have very supportive people around me. They remind me every day that I am not alone and they do their best to try to help me out.
Now that we are on winter break, I am highly looking forward to getting some of my old life back. I miss reading, blogging, hiking, and dancing. My goal is to up my game in these departments before going back to work. So keep a look out for new posts in the next few weeks!
