Tea Time | First Week in The Ville

It feels so weird to be typing this post as I haven’t done a tea time in so long. I miss it honestly. It was such an awesome way for me to get out what was on my mind without having something “specific” to talk about… even though what’s on my mind does all revolve around one topic: I moved! A few bloggers have my personal Facebook and have probably seen some of my journey, but exactly one week ago, I made the move to my new home… three and a half hours away from where I previously called home.

You’re probably like, “Girl, why did ya go and do that for?!” Well, I got a job! My dream job, actually. Many of you know that I have been studying to be a special education teacher for about four and half years now and I finally graduated in December! Woohoo! 🎉 I honestly can’t believe that I am actually a college graduate or that I’ve got my first job already. I did not see myself getting a job right out because it is so much harder for December graduates, being that school starts in August here. However, I am so proud of myself and my determination to find what sets my soul on fire. I absolutely love my job already and I think my new school is going to be an amazing home.

As far as “titles”, I am now an ECE Resource Teacher at Portland Elementary School in Louisville, KY! It’s crazy when I actually type it out because I’m still not used to actually having the title of “teacher”. It’s been “MSU student”, “student teacher”, “student”, and so many other titles for so long that I forgot what I was actually doing all that work for. I know my mom is smiling down at me, proud.

As for Louisville, I love it! I’ve always wanted to live in a big town and this job has given me that opportunity. You really don’t realize all that you miss out on living in small towns until you make the jump. There are so many different areas of Louisville, so there is something for everyone. I’ve honestly thought about doing some local restaurant/shop reviews as I’ve already looked into some that I think could be real gems. (Would you guys be interested in this?)

Anyway, I think that’s about it for tonight. I’m going to try my best to get back into blogging regularly, but it may only be once or twice a week for now. I have lots of new products to review and put up that I’ve purchased over the last several months. Let me know if there’s anything specific you want to see reviews on!

Tea Time Chit-Chat #3

tea time chit chat

Tea time chit chat did not get forgotten! I have had some crazy changes going on and life, in general, has decided to field goal hit me right in the face. However, through the negatives, I have finally found another job that I feel like will really work with my upcoming student teaching. I am super excited to be leaving the fast food life behind and moving into something with more opportunities and better pay (’cause we all know that this is real nice).

I think this is probably the first cup of tea I’ve had since I moved into my new apartment (apartment tour post???). I have so much to do still and the amount of pain that has taken over my body here lately has not agreed with this whole “moving” process. Apparently cleaning, organizing, unpacking, and moving in ways I don’t normally move is not the best thing to just throw yourself into… who knew? Thankfully, I have awesome friends and family that have been helping me through it.

Most of what feels like emptiness is just where I really need to get my pictures, canvases, and overall decor back up. It makes my apartment a little more… me. I have been having this weird empty feeling here lately that doesn’t quite meet depression but not quite something else. I just feel like something is missing and I really need to take a few mental health days to myself to recuperate before my seminars begin in August.

Other than life having a dance party on my head, I think I am making it just fine. I’m alive, my bills are paid, and those I love are taken care of. I honestly just wanted to come and talk to you guys… getting it all out seems to make me feel better (although I may be slightly insane for thinking you guys actually listen).

Everyone has little bumps in the road, it’s up to you whether you suffer in silence or enjoy the ride.
