The Times They Are A-Changin'

Hi Friends!

So I haven't been a very good blogger lately. 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.

You can read more about this transition here.

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?
