January of Me-Day15


Starting Thoughts
I got home pretty late last night and was not able to do day 2 of my 30 Days of Yoga Camp (I didn't realize day 2 was almost an hour, and I didn't think going to bed at midnight was a good idea). I woke up feeling a bit off for no particular reason, but still pushed myself  to do my usual morning routine.

Progress

  • Decided not to do Postmates. Sometimes progress is deciding what is right for you and what is not.
  • Emailed my Doctor regarding the fact that I am always cold. Seriously, it was 77 degrees in my classroom and I had to wear my jacket.
  • Finally had my second interview. I feel it went well, and they liked the answers I gave. They are going to follow up with the woman I had the first interview with and she's going to talk with the Principal. I'm suppose to meet with him, which I technically already did when I interviewed for the other position, so we'll see if he wants to do it again.

Mindfulness/Other DBT Skills

  • Morning yoga.
  • Felt really off most off the day, but did my best to stay present.
Highlights

  • I was acting goofy with the kids and one of them goes, "we have the coolest teachers."
  • I'm really excited about some of the stuff I get to teach in class. During 6th grade ELA I got to teach them about the Boston Molasses Flood; during 6th grade reading we are doing poetry; in 5th grade ELA I'm going over each planet with them; and in 5th grade reading we're reading one of my favorite books "from the Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankenweiler." In the book two kids run away to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, so before we start reading we are teaching the kids all about the museum and different artists (so far we did Michelangelo and Van Gogh).
  • Sat at the library reading before group. It's really nice to be getting back into actually reading at the library. I've been using it so much for the internet. I only recently discovered an entire section with comfy chairs, and it's just nice to escape for a little bit.
  • Support group went well. There was less people this time, and I got to talk a little bit more. One of the members brought her service dog, a golden retriever puppy, and I got to hold it. One of the things I really like about group is that I don't feel alone. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person in the world who feels the things I do and then I come to group and people are like, "yup, me too!"
End Thoughts
I got my period today, and didn't have tampons or money to buy them (pay day is Friday) so I had to skip yoga. Aside from that I was tired and wanted to get right to bed. I had a pretty good day. I felt a little bit off during work, no particular reason, but group really helped.
