My adult job

I've take a bit of a break from the blog world, what with moving and my new job I just couldn't arrange my thoughts into a meaningful, much less comprehensible, entry.
But I'm back!
I'm all moved into my new (adult) apartment. I've got a kitchen that I can just barely turn around in but fits all my stuff nicely because I have a...(drumroll) Pantry! Yes, yes, I know, not really SO exciting, but I love it because I love to bake and I need a lot of extra room for my foodstuffs.
I have also started my job and realized quickly that I don't want to be a teacher. Don't get me wrong, for the most part I enjoy working with the kids, but I could never, ever see myself doing this for the rest of my life. Also, I'm never 'in charge' of a whole class, I just take small groups aside for tutoring and the like. My GOD, what these teachers go through! The age groups we are working with, K-5 are completely, without a doubt, incapable of sitting quietly and working for more than 2 minutes. So imagine the stress of constantly having to keep a class of 25 children on task when all they want to do is get a drink, go to the bathroom, how do you spell this word, she's touching me, he's talking, I'm sick, blah blah blah into infinity. It is neverending, at least I get to make a run for it when my time is up with a certain class!
In general though. My life is good, I'm in love and happy.
