Day 31 ~ March SOLSC
Get your coffee, pull up a chair, and let’s chat. I’m only on my first cup of coffee today. You see, when I opened the cabinet to take out the coffee and filters to make the coffee, I noticed there weren’t anymore filters (I have an old coffee maker that requires the paper filters). A real sense of sadness filled me. I’m not sure that’s a good thing though. I just really love my coffee. So, I did what any smart person would do – woke my husband and sent him to the store and get filters. Ha! He came back with filters and two cups of coffee – one for me and one for him. He’s so good to me.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that today is the final day of the 2019 March Slice of Life Story Challenge. I can’t believe the month is over already. I’ve had such a great time, even though some days it was really a challenge to write. This year I was part of the Welcome Wagon and was given a few first time slicers to follow. I really enjoyed this experience and it let me connect with four new slicers. Publishing a writing piece every day is only one part of the challenge. The real sense of community comes from reading and commenting on other’s pieces. I love the writing, but I also love reading what other people write. I learn different techniques and structures as well as get to digitally know people. It really is a great community and I’m so happy to be a part of it. I have to be better at keeping this habit going. It truly does bring me joy!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m going back to school for a Masters in Educational Leadership. Well, I haven’t officially gotten the acceptance notification, but I’m confident it will come. I had a phone interview with a professor from the admissions team on Tuesday. It was a very nice, relaxed, conversation about my teaching career and my possible future as a school district or building leader. I haven’t been enrolled in graduate school since 2007. I’m feeling both nervous and excited. I can’t wait to see where this learning experience takes me.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I really need to get myself back into my workout routine. Since the tendonitis in my foot has decided that I stop training for a half marathon, I sort of fell off the workout wagon. After I finish this cup of coffee, I’ll be putting my workout clothes on and heading to the gym.
It’s been very nice chatting with you. Congrats to all the slicers for completing the March Challenge! I hope to hear how you’re weekend has been going too.
