Rough Day


I don’t know exactly why, I can’t seem to place my finger on it but today was just a rough day emotionally for me. I sometimes just feel like I’m not cut out for it. Teaching is very hard and I just feel like I’m not a creative enough person sometimes to make lesson plans that will not only engage my students but will actually teach them something. I know it’ll pass and I know there are many several other projects that I’m working on that will hopefully benefit people across the entire country but at this point in time everything is at a stand still. I’m working on the Commemorate PCRO book and we are currently in a partial stand still, for the GLOW and TOBE train the trainer camps, I’m trying to get myself organized to write some grants and just continue updating activity ideas and then there is the Junior Achievement trip to Latvia that Loredana (The econ teacher) and I are planning. I really hope it does work out since it isn’t going to be the cheapest trip but I know that if we actually get the students out there, it will be a great benefit for them. I guess I’m just nervous that everything is going to bomb and nothing will actually get done. I know, I know, I’m off my rocker.


Luckily, I have great friends and family that have made my day better. The main one was this wonderful picture of the newest edition to the Balac family that Vlado sent me šŸ™‚

Baby Balac


Well tomorrow is a new day and I have some fun things planned for this week so hopefully things will look up. Most of my activities this week will be revolving around Halloween. I have planned a pumpkin carving activity after school on Thursday so hopefully I get a decent turn out and Friday is the Balul Bobocilor (Freshman Ball) so I’m anticipating how that will go.

Let’s hope the next post won’t be another rant, until next time, va pup!

  1. You’ve got a lot on your plate, my friend. You can’t save the world in 27 months – or Romania in the 20+ months – you have left. Yeah, you’re a mid-twenties energy-filled woman, but IMNSHO you must pace yourself. Hugs to you.
