Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Why can’t I keep cleaning?

My room at school. My room at home. My life in boxes. All these days are is packing and saying goodbye to people I love. And I’m excited about graduate school. And I’m excited about my new job with TFA. But I’m overwhelmed. As if I’m maybe doing too much all at once. Why am I moving here and there and everywhere all at once?

Today was the last day of class where we hand back finals. In my case I handed back finals and tried to get kids to help me clean my room. It’s still kind of a disaster but it’s getting better. My life is a whirlwind-too many things. Too many papers. And I’m buying a house? And starting two new jobs. And I need to register for classes. And I’m exhausted. And I’m showing my room to new people. And buying a house!? That huge looming task is just kind of sitting in the back of my mind at the moment. And it’s huge. Not something to put off or take lightly or jump into because I was too busy.
I hope I’m managing my life okay. And that I’ll have some sort of summer. Teachers really need that. Everyone talks about being tired at the end of the school year.
