It’s time for the “I told you so” moment..

I’ve been kind of gearing up for this post for a week or so now, since I accepted the computer lab job.


And uncharacteristically, I’m having issues putting the whole gammut of emotions into words. Usually, I’m like Isaac-verbal spewage. But come on, this has put me at a loss.

I’ve spent a lot of time on why I don’t want to teach anymore. I spent a lot of time getting into nursing school. Convincing myself that this is what I really wanted.


Well, as the start date got closer and closer and closer, I was getting more and more cold feet. More and more, I didn’t want to go. More and more I had to talk myself into “this is what I want. This is what I want..” and when the call came in from Sister (the principal), it was all that I needed to get the answer I wanted and stop convincing myself.

It was all so much easier when I had a plan. It was all so much easier when I figured I could leave this behind.

But how can I…


I get excited when I get to go pick out border…

I go and get excited over freebies at Staples…

When I get into a slight disagreement over frogs vs monkeys to hang in my room (For the record-it’s Monkeys this year.)…

When I can’t sleep before the first day of school…

when I am thinking of all the ways I can make the curriculum fun, but seriously learning at the same time… can all say it now…(AngelForever…I know you’re the loudest here…)


You all told me so.



Oh, and stay tuned. Tomorrow? Baristas having way too much fun…

    No, I will not say I told you so. This was a decision you had to make on your own. I am just glad that you were able to finally see the light and realize what talent you would be wasting leaving the teaching profession. You know that I kept this to myself for several years now and this was just the right time for me to finally say something. Still, I did so nicely 🙂 I have to say I am jealous of you buying things for a classroom. I will have to go and visit some day to take it all in. Oh, I know I can be your official sale buddy and school supply pimp 😉
