As I sit here tonight writing this post, all the previous thoughts I had for it have suddenly fallen away. The thought that just came into my head is this: tonight is the last school night.
After so many years in the teaching profession, it’s kind of hard to wrap my head around this reality.
The last school night.
My alarm will go off at 5:30am tomorrow morning, and then I don’t know what alarms I’ll be setting from there. WOW.
At this moment, I am excited. But, in all honesty, I don’t know what emotions will come forth tomorrow. I can predict a mixed batch; it will definitely be strange to say my good-byes and take my belongings and lock up my room. The last five years of my life have been spent on one, small street in the great, big Bronx. It’s going to be bittersweet for sure.
The one thing I do know: I am proud of myself.
Proud that I am following my heart, listening to that voice in my head, and taking action. Tomorrow is the day I close one chapter and begin to write a new one.
Ok, time to set that alarm. Goodnight y’all : )
