Wow, it feels like forever since the last time I was here.
It hasn’t been forever, but it has been a long time. A time in which I have seen lots of movies (many at the movie theater; yay me!), I split up with my husband, I got a job and I have had to make huge changes in my life. It hasn’t been easy, but there it is. Life’s not easy.
As for the movies, I really can’t say all I’d like to say. I’d rather answer questions –if you guys were kind enough to leave any, that is. Thankfully, I’ve seen most of what I’ve wanted to see.
As for the new job… now I’m an English teacher at a junior high school. It’s the most difficult thing I’ve ever had to do. Teens are so hard at that age… it’s that time when you really think you can eat the world, but you lack the scope to see that you can’t even begin the first bite without choking. They can be lovable, but also annoying to no end. They respect nobody unless they have a real danger awaiting them if they disrespect them. Many parents have the idea that we are nannies; that we ought to be nice and kind to kids that won’t even bother to shut up when you’re trying to explain something, It has been hard for me because I’ve always worked with adults; with people that actually WANT to learn. Junior high kids think that English is just a bonus subject, and they don’t pay the slightest attention. It makes me SO frustrated… however, there’s always that ray of light. That kid that will actually light up when he or she sees you, and tell you straight up how much they love you. That’s really priceless. The thought that I can really make a difference, even if it’s only in one person’s life, keeps me going. That and my kids, of course.
There are really many more things I’d like to talk about, but I can’t. Not yet, anyway. I just hope all this is going upward; I know it is, even if I can’t see how at the moment. What I do is: 1) trust God, and 2) just keep swimming, as one wise fish once said.
I think that’s all for now. Thanks for reading/listening. I really hope to be vack soon. Please, if you’d be so kind, leave questions for me to answer about movies… there are so many!!
