And there are only 12 school days left!! Whooo hooo.
I feel like shouting it from the roof tops. Singing it in the rain. Dancing it down the street.
After this weekend I will be done my report cards. I can start to concentrate on packing up my room. I can watch TV and read books every evening and not feel guilty that I am not planning or marking.
It doesn't even matter that I am doing summer school again. That will be news kids and new challenges and a new place. But this year will be done and behind me. No more Grade 8's (except maybe summer school, but that's a whole different thing about which I will post later)
Oh the gloriousness of endings and new beginnings. Everything is fresh and delicious.
It's like a brand new pack of markers,
or an unused notebook,
a freshly sharpened pencil,
new clothes with the tags still on,
the smell of a new book,
clean sheets on your bed,
the first sip out of a can of cream soda,
seeing the waiter emerge from the kitchen and knowing he is carrying your dinner,
waiting for a friend to arrive,
hello hugs in the airport....
... and so much more.
What's your favourite ending/new beginning?
