Oh hey everyone!

WHOA it’s been forever since I’ve been on the blog.  Time to get back into the swing of things.  I am currently working on a post about my trip to Prague–I swear I am–but in the meantime, a short little post!

First of all, current assistants who read here, how’s it going??  If I remember correctly you’re probably about in the middle of your two week break right now.  Did you all find a place to live?  How’s school going?  Are you traveling right now?

Secondly, a quick update on my life.  Since I returned from France I interviewed at three different schools, applied at three different temp agencies, got a teaching job AND a temp summer job, moved out of my parents’ house into my own rental house, and started working full time teaching English, French, and ESL at a local high school!  I’m loving it.  At some point I might do a photo recap of my summer, but who knows if I’ll ever get to that point.

I had about a week in Blono to chill and relax, and then I moved out of my apartment the following weekend.  It was so sad to say goodbye to my first real apartment and my roommate!  I then drove to my parents’ house in Illinois City, where I unpacked and started to try to organize my room (fitting an entire apartment into one room is not good) for a couple of days before driving back to Bloomington to celebrate graduation with my friends, participate in the ceremony, and spend time with my family that came down to visit.
