Things always do seem to fall into place as they need to.

I went to a job fair in Boston today, talked to a lot of great people who work for schools in the greater Boston area, who now want me to work there. I want me to work there too. Boston feels comfortable, yet refreshing. Like that lovely breeze blowing off the harbor today.

I love it when everything feels right.

My brain is working! Its after 8 pm, and I can still do brainteasers, completed 12 in fact, to nearly clear out my email inbox. Also, I wrote complete paragraphs yesterday; that was less exciting, but a bigger deal in the overall scheme of getting things done. Tomorrow I will walk to the greenhouse in the rain, because the world is flooding and I don't know how to throw away plants. Violets flower year round if taken care of properly, who could really give that up? I think I may donate some spider plants to the greenhouse though, 3 of them outgrew their home and the big one is about to have babies again anyway.

Now to sleep before I ruin the good things I've gained.

Snow in April.
Not little flurries, big fluffy flakes, coming down for over an hour.
I'm concerned for the state of the climate. I'm also concerned that I'll need to reanalyze my wardrobe, I packed away all my sweaters and moved t-shirts and tank tops to the front of my closet.

Vacation is this week but I keep forgetting that I don't have to get up early on Monday, its a pleasant surprise every time I remember. I have a very long list of things I'd like to accomplish, I have a feeling very few of them will actually get done, but something is better than nothing. Step one: be awake. I'll go work on that one.

I'm home again, I have mono and a girlfriend (which I really did get in that order).
Still no job, probably because I haven't really applied for any.
And its April!
3 weeks left of student teaching, one week of break in the middle of that, off to GA/FL for vacation and then I graduate.

I'm very happy about all of this, except the mono part. That just makes me tired. Its shocking how little there is between now and the end of college, how much I have to look forward to in the meantime and at the moment how little panic I feel. Maybe thats just because I'm too tired to put any energy into panicking. Why is there a k in that word but not in panic? Weird.

Really though, life is great, so great that when I go to make a wish as I blow away an eyelash, I don't know what to wish for. The ability to write paragraphs might be nice... I can't write complete papers anymore, just outlines. Someday soon my brain should wake up and be able to think in more than just phrases.

Happy Easter Weekend!
