Currently ** January 2015

2015, seriously? Wasn't it just 2000?! In 2000 I was...
* A freshman in high school
* Turning 15
* Listening to 'N Sync, Christina Aguilera, Britney
* Watching Dawson's Creek, Gilmore Girls, ER, the final episodes of Boy Meets World and 90210
* Dancing on the first (and only) dance team at our high school
...oh my!! 
Okay, enough of that lovely flashback, I will withhold sharing scary photos of this point in my life. 

I am CURRENTLY wicked excited by making into Farley's linky in the first 30! That's a first! Woohoo!!
<< Insert happy dance here >>

Listening - For anyone following me on Instagram, I just finished Parenthood and I didn't want to start anything new because I need to focus on planning for the next couple of weeks, so back to an oldie but goodie, it is! 

Loving - A local college has an accelerated MBA program that puts student teachers in the classroom from January to the end of the school district's year (not the college's spring semester). So my student teacher, who is just about my age, will be gradually working up to a 2-week take-over, but will then stay with us a co-teacher for the rest of the school year. I am thinking that this could work out VERY well! I am so excited to plan for small groups and so much more with another teacher in the classroom! :o)

Thinking - January is going to be a busy month: Busy weekends - Patriots play-off tickets!, RETELL coming to an end and capstone project to complete, student teacher joining us. I would like to plan ahead, we'll see how this goes. Also, I cannot help but think about having about 9 weeks until testing starts...UGH!!

Wanting - For those of you who noticed in my little introduction, if I turned 15 in 2000, that means I turn 30 this April! Eeeeek!! I have very mixed feelings about this birthday. But I plan to make this year a fun and memorable one for sure! 

Needing - RETELL to be all done! Two more classes and a capstone presentation...I think I can, I think I can...

YES - I will run my first 5K for my school the day before my 30th birthday. 
MAYBE - It has been 3 years since I completed my Master's program and it's time to start something new. I am just not sure what something new will be. Sometimes I think about Administration, sometimes I think about a Doctorate in Education. Maybe this is the year to make a decision. 
I WISH - To expand my itty-bitty TPT store. This should be more than an I wish, but I just cannot find the time to sit down and create the way that I wish I could. Hopefully this turns out to be more and I become more accomplished on TPT, we'll see. 

Have a safe and fun New Year's Eve and Happy 2015 Bloggy Friends!!

Loved reading your flashback. :) I will also have a student teacher starting in January, but only get to keep her until mid-March. You are very fortunate!! Good luck deciding on future education.

I agree! I got married in 2000! I am going to turn 40 in Feb! Hope that everything works out with your student teacher. I had one several years ago and she was great! Happy New Year! Good luck!
