Sooooo... the other day I posted that I finally decided to go back to college to be a teacher. Met with somebody about this program and i am excited but holy shit... my anxiety is in overdrive. But... LOOK AT ME, I'M FOLLOWING THROUGH EVEN THOUGH IT'S SCARY! Making this appointment was scary. Actually showing up was terrifying. Now i just have to go do a billion things so i can get admitted. As I sat in this office, going over this program and requirements, my brain kept screaming at me that i am going to fail. That I'm going to do all this work and then I'm going to crash and burn when they come to observe me in the classroom (even though I've been in the classroom for 11 years - creating and presenting lessons to whole and small groups). I got to my car and cried some, but then told my brain to fuck off because i CAN do this and i need it to shut up for a while because i have a lot of work to do. So, if you've made it this far... show me your favorite emojis or tell me a joke or give me some sort of encouraging words lol... I know none of you know me IRL... But if you wouldn't mind keeping your fingers crossed or sending me done good thoughts or vibes or prayers or whatever you do... I'd really appreciate it. Now to grab some food before my massage this afternoon 😎
Congratulations to all the Cornell graduates this weekend! I thought it only appropriate to record Cornell's alma mater for this week's video. I went there for my Masters degree, so this weekend always brings back fun memories, too. I couldn't find a suitable scoring for this online, so I mapped out the chords on my own. Feeling rather accomplished about that, but it was easy: I've heard it so many times at Cornell's football and hockey games!
