As most of my friends already know, I enjoy new chapters in my life. This next chapter is a two-fer for me – new job and new place. I’m now a 10th grade English teacher in the Memphis school system and I’ve moving back into a Memphis zip code. I couldn’t be more thrilled.
I don’t like packing or moving, but I sure do like unpacking and setting up. It’s like Christmas all over again, finding cherished items and putting them in their new little place.
My hope is to be done today so I can start getting plans together for my classroom this fall. I’m so excited!
I get to think of ways to decorate and projects I can introduce to help my students learn. I know I’ll probably change my tune come November when I’m about ready to face plant my desk:
But for now, I’m enjoying the fact that I’m finally a teacher with my own classroom.
The condo is fabulous. It’s two bedrooms, two baths and it has hardwood floors! Granted, they’re actually laminate, but still. I have tons of storage space and the best part? I have a washer and dryer INSIDE. I’ve spent the last six years on a college campus lugging my laundry basket to the campus laundromat. Here, I just walk two feet. No muss, no fuss. The neighbors are awesome – very friendly and helpful. The courtyard outside my condo is beautiful. They cut the grass regularly and the landscaping is so pretty.
I love being so close to everything again. Restaurants, grocery stores, shops are all within a few minutes’ drive so my little Beetle is going to love the short hops.
I’m sure I’ll be sharing more adventures now that I’m settled into my own little place again and have the time to write.
