The wheels on the bus go ’round and ’round

I’m typing this as I’m riding the bus to school, so I’ll keep it brief. And because typing on an iPhone is complicating the process.


Im sitting amongst my peers, my friends, and I can truly say I haven’t been happy in this kind of way before. Not only am I sitting with people that I’ve fallen for, but I’m on the way to work, doing the job that I love. I received my placement a couple of days ago, and I jumped out of my chair and emphatically screamed, “I got fourth grade!”My uncle said it looked like I had just won the lottery. To be honest with you, that’s exactly what I imagine winning the lottery would¬†feel like. But with this doesn’t come the burden of trying to figure out what to do with so much money or paying an exorbanant amount in taxes… It comes with the burden of my future 4th graders’ future. Something that is infinitely more important to me.


We are pulling up to school now, so I wilI write more in depth later!

Happy Friday!
