The Substitute Teaching Course
I'm going to show up this evening and strive to relax and remain positive.
I'm going to find humor in the scenario, even if I really want to cry.
I'm going to smile until it's contagious (and be reminded of my mom as I grin from ear to ear).
I will probably talk too fast and get all awkward and red out of sheer nervousness.
I hate situations that put me outside of my comfort zone, but it's time for me to get a little push.
I'm going to embrace this next journey and pray that it leads me to something great.
When I'm nervous about something, I organize to feel at ease -- that's so very Rain Man of me.
For some reason, I feel like I can take on anything if given a fresh Moleskine or pen.
Throw on a money shirt, some bangles and an Emerson flower pin, and suddenly I'm a bit more relaxed.
Here's my survival kit for tonight's first class...
|Checkbook, Pen, Highlighter, Registration Slip, Hand Lotion, Lip Balm, Gum, Moleskine, Clif Bar, Textbook|
Wish me luck!
I'll be back tomorrow with a sunnier post. I promise. I just need to get these jitters out of the way first!
Happy Monday, my lovelies!
HOW EXCITING! I wish I would have had a course prior to subbing! Good luck!!ReplyDelete
Good luck!! You will definitely be the best dressed person there!ReplyDelete
Perfect combination! A moleskin & pen do the same for me too! I hope it's not as awful as your mind may think and you meet someone fun in class. Good luck! You'll be fabulous! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the love, ladies! I'm sure it won't be that bad either. I just get a little anxious:) Hope your day is great!!ReplyDelete
