They say a change is as good as a rest....so, let's prove it!
June 27, 2012
Today was the last day of work with students for the year. But unlike the 23 end-of-Junes which have come before it, today marks the beginning of 14 months away from work, and I couldn't be more excited! I have been looking forward to this day for the last three years. After a very bad work experience, I decided to look into other ways of spending my time. After all, life is too short to be unhappy. So, I decided to take advantage of the deferred salary option I have at work and the countdown began! In some ways, the time seems to have flown by and in others it couldn't get here fast enough.
And so today, I begin what I hope will be a year of incredible opportunity, experience, reflection and fun! Who knows what is in store? I am looking forward to seeing what is to come.
I started it off this past weekend with my family here for the Jazz Festival.
Today was a mixture of some sadness and much excitement as I said good-bye to the great kids and families at my school. Receiving things such as these means a great deal to someone who teaches. At least they do to me.
So now I have two more days to finish things up at school and then "Bob's Big Adventure" can finally begin. I can't wait to see what is in store!! Join me, if you like, to see what is out there..... :)
