1. Awesome was the feeling that things are starting to come together, and exciting is the feeling that the next adventure in my life is already beginning.
2. Awesome was finally getting official approval for the project proposal I’d written prior to Christmas vacation. I’d applied for funding for myself, and the French primary teachers to teach a very basic music class to our students (a subject that has not been taught in our school in a very long time – at least since I’d begun teaching here).
I spent part of yesterday afternoon “shopping” for everything I will need for this endeavour – resources (books, flashcards, c.d’s), posters, supplies and incentives, as well as the set of recorders that I pray will not become the bane of my existence.
3. Awesome was a telephone girl chat with my friend Amanda yesterday evening. It was brief, but it was overdue, and it left me feeling a bit lighter, and a bit more connected with my outside world.
