Okay, now that we're over that, I figured I'd update from a couple of posts. Many of you know this, but now everyone can know. As of one of my most recent posts, I was slated to start as a Personal Trainer for one of the 24 Hour Fitness locations here in O-town. The day I was supposed to start, I actually started a long term sub position. In a middle school. Yeah. So, prior to this job, I thought middle school kids were the devil and I had no interest in teaching at that level. After nearly a month (four incomplete weeks) at Millard North Middle School teaching sixth grade Language Arts... I would have no problem teaching at the middle school level. Wow. I... I'm in shock at that last statement by me. My former co-workers (both volleyball and teaching) have to realise what I'm saying here. I was so anti-middle school, but I will be applying at MNMS in the event that I decide to apply for a full time teaching gig in the fall. I suppose that is sort of a big announcement.... that I like Omaha enough that I want to be here. Great town.
Okay, other news. I posted specifically tonight because I've been feeling a bit of melancholy tonight. Tis the season, and as my social life has been... slow to develop here... I have to admit to feeling a bit lonely. While cocktail parties and holiday parties are hosted by my dear friends in Denver, I will be missing them. I love O-town, don't get me wrong, but I dearly miss all of you right now. I have no plans for the Christmas/Birthday/New Year's timeframe, but I'll do everything I can to come home come hell or high water.
Not a lot of great interest to add since the last post. FINALLY had a measurable snow here. Lots of stories, but thank goodness Markeya made it safely here... with some help! It's interesting because I am baffled by Omahans' inability to drive in the snow. Does it not snow often enough here? Are cause/effect relationships hard to handle? I don't get it. Anywa, I played in, and won, a co-ed volleyball tournament on Sunday. It was rad! Went to one volleyball practice and landed two recruits. Epic win.
I hope you are all enjoying this holiday season with family and friends. I mostly posted to tell you all how much you mean to me, and how dearly I miss all of you in Colorado, or California, or any place else. All of you who are taking the time to read this, I am so grateful for your continuing friendship and support. I'd love to hear from you via text or email. THANK YOU!!!!!
