So I haven't been a very good blogger lately. Like...at all. I'm sorry. Things have been happening. BIG things. Such as leaving the classroom and becoming a behavior analyst for the Department of Developmental Services!
Yes, BIG things.
Leaving the classroom was not an easy decision, but one that needed to be made. I obviously had expectations of leaving the classroom teaching environment for a BCBA position. However, I never imaged leaving the school all together. Nor did I imagine leaving this quickly.
It needed to be done. Once I left the environment, I immediately felt a huge sense of relief. Even though I am still figuring out my position here as a behavior analyst, I wake up every day excited about the day ahead. I'm eager to learn new things, and work my hardest. I had lost that sense of enjoyment in the classroom. It was time to make a change, and I'm glad I did.

In other news...I'm back at the Currently game with Farley. Check out her fabulous blog and join in on the fun if you haven't already :)
Listening: I'm listening to Jaymay Radio on Spotify. Jaymay is a singer-songwriter with an intoxicating voice and bewitching lyrics. And anyone who is anyone has Spotify.
Loving: My new job! Read above for more details (limited as they may be...)
Thinking: Today is my birthday (!) and I just LOVE birthdays! The husband is a tremendous gift giver and birthday celebrator. I can't wait to spend the evening cuddling with him on my birthday :)
Wanting: Yikes! My nails are long overdue for a polish change. Luckily, my mom gave me a gift certificate to my favorite salon for my birthday, so I'm scheduling a mani/pedi for this week!
Needing: After a Sunday full of soccer and hikes, my body is in desperate need of a deep tissue massage. Yes I said deep tissue.
Summer Bucket List: The Husband and I love playing tennis together. Though we aren't very good, it's about being together, being healthy, and having fun. Warm summer nights means late night tennis! Hikes are also a go-to date for us. We love being active, and enjoying the beauty of nature together. Plus, we can include Lulabelle, which is always a plus! And finally, beach walks are a MUST during the summer. Who doesn't love long walks on the beach?
Oh, and if you are interested in playing a fun game and winning something from my store, guess how old I am turning today! The first person to guess correctly wins any item of their choice from my TPT store! Good luck :)
