This week's theme...
1. People aren't always who you think they are. This last year, I learned so much about people in my life. I really thought a few of them were true, life long friends but really...they were just looking out for themselves. It's hurtful and embarrassing to me, honestly. I feel like I was taken advantage of and forgotten. Ugh. Nasty. I've also been pleasantly surprised with how true a few friends are. You know who you are and your support means the WORLD to me.
2. Friends can be any age. Some of my best friends have always been my students. It seems as one group graduates, another group steps up and takes over. They are invaluable to me! I enjoy the laughter, stories and general miscellany that results from teaching and working with them each week. I love when something happens in their lives and they need to tell me all about it. I love to get texts about a good grade, winning a track meet, etc. It is a great type of friendship!
What have you learned??
