Fall, fall, fall!

Today I'm feeling really nostalgic about Connecticut and NY. I think it's because I woke up this morning and watched the TODAY show for about five minutes. Bruce Springsteen was having a concert on the Plaza and it brought back a barrage of memories from all the times we went there. So then all day on and off I've been thinking about all of the adventures I had with Sarah, Tamara, and Katharina in the first few months, then Ellen joined us, and about a month before I moved home, Gillian became part of our group. I can't believe I won't be seeing any of them for such a long time. Who knows when the next time will be. As Katharina would always say in the last month or two that we were out there: We knew we'd have to say goodbye and leave. I just think we didn't think it was going to be so hard. The actual saying goodbye wasn't too bad for me, but now thinking about everything is making me so sad.

What a strange thing. To meet people, become really good friends with them, spend all of your free time for almost a year with them. Then say goodbye and not know when you'll ever see each other again. :S

Life's good in Michigan :) I know so many days when I would call home from CT, I would be sad about things I was missing out on. I get to go to all of the CC meets and football games and see most of my family every day. I don't take that for granted and I love being with all of them. I also get to spend some weekends with my friends. I don't have to get phone calls on Saturday or Sunday morning to hear what everyone did...

I'm teaching high school math right now, for another five weeks. (It'll be 9 weeks total.) MAN, is it ever exhausting!! But I'm really enjoying it. I felt like a total math geek this morning during one of my classes because I was so excited for the lesson. I was just pumped about the topic (limits), and I let my students know. I think some of them looked at me like get over it and get on with it. :)

This chica's exhausted!! and I'm helping Liz with a wedding tomorrow -- no rest for the weary! Just kidding -- I don't have to set an alarm for the first time in over a month -- so I'm EXCITED! :)
