Welcome to the first post of my favorite yearly blog series September Studies. This series holds a special place in my heart because September is my blogiversary month, and i always look forward to celebrating. This is also the beginning of the change into the season that i love FALL! I love pumpkin flavored, and scented everything except for pie, and i love fall colors, and weather. I can't wait to put a hoodie back on.
This September i find myself in a new season in life. I have gone back to school at 32 years old. You might be asking why i have done this, and the hardest, and most honest answer is because i can't rely on my body to do what i want it to do anymore. What does that mean? I had spinal fusion surgery twelve weeks ago, and i am scared that i may not be able to continue to do the job that i have been doing for 13 years. Childcare. Let me explain. When you think of a daycare teacher do you think of a glorified babysitter for your kids or other's kids? Well we don't think of ourselves that way. We go into work everyday excited to see each kid no matter who they are, or if they give us a hard time throughout the day. We are excited to teach young minds new things, and watch them group throughout the year. However, the job is grueling. You are constantly moving, bending, lifting, and twisting. These are all things that i have been restricted from doing for the last twelve weeks, and it really puts things into perspective now that my body may not work for me in the same way that it has in the past.
I am pursuing a Bachelors in Social Sciences, and began classes this week. I am excited to continue my college experience. Lets hope that school #5 is the lucky one!!
I hope that you stick around for the September Studies Blog series, and that you enjoyed this post.
