So it still hasn't really hit me yet... That Teacher Training this fall is a REALITY. It is happening! I still don't know about the scholarship; they changed the date when they will announce it (I would insert 'fuming mad emoticon face' here but I don't think I can...). Actually I'm not fuming at all, it would just be nice to know how this whole shebang is going to be paid for and how much debt I'm going to be in when I get back.
I need to reality to set in! Seriously! There is so much to do! I have dialogue to memorize. Packing lists to write. Supplies to purchase. Flights to book. Bills to set in order. Despite all of this, I have a really good way of not stressing out about things. Honestly, why worry? Life will go on, the sun will set and the moon will rise. This process is what it is and I'm just going to take it all in while sipping on a coconut drink and floating on a wave in the Pacific.
My employers officially approved my leave of absence today. We had our weekly staff meeting this morning and my supervisor announced that I had some big news to share with everyone which totally took me by surprise because I had no idea that the management team had discussed it already! It was a great surprise and I am so glad and relieved to be able to talk about it at work now. It is great to have the support from my company and I am very thankful to have a full-time job to come back to! I will only be teaching yoga a few times a week so I'd quickly be homeless without my current job!

Warning: If you are a future teacher trainee who is supposed to be memorizing dialogue (ie. myself) do not go to this site because you will become addicted and will thus waste many precious studying hours!
