say it ain't so...

I have been thinking a lot about what I want to do with my life. I got pregnant and thought, "Oh well, 5 more years before I can decide." Well, I think I may have decided already.

The funny thing is, since my kids' godmother graduated and is now teaching, I have felt jealous. I don't envy my social worker friends, or my chef friends (one of whom is opening his own place soon...I'll have the dirt later). My cousin also just took a teaching position, in 7th-8th grade English. That made me just as envious.

I think I'm going to look into teaching junior high school. It's what I wanted to do as a kid. I don't think I can wait 5 more years for college, so I need to decide anyway. I could minor in sign language and just have that as a suppliment. Maybe I could teach somewhere with some deaf students.

Yeah, I think I'm going to start on that.
