Changing My Mind

Changing My Mind

This may come as a surprise to you, but I couldn’t resist starting a new Project Life album.

I know I said I was overwhelmed and tired of it. I know I said I felt trapped and uninspired while doing it. But I think that was the exhausting job talking.

I’ve finally gotten an answer re: the job, and I will not be teaching next year. Most of me is really happy about that. But I will miss having to talk and think about science on a regular basis. I’m so glad to have done it, simply because it reminded me of just how much I love science.

So, since I will not have to create the curricula for any science courses this year, I’m feeling amazingly light-hearted. Free even! And that makes me want to do Project Life again.

This year should look much different than last year, with no exchange student, a different job (what, I don’t know yet), and one kid in middle school and one in high school.

I bought an album over the weekend, and used the cards I had on hand to create an opening page. I’ll be going through July photos and getting those printed up this week. I’ll update this on a monthly basis. When I do something that seems interesting, I’ll share it with you.

I’m feeling really good about changing my mind.

All ready to go. Should I round all the corners?

  1. I think changing your mind is perfectly fine… I may YET change my mind re: ever even **starting** to do PL, as CTMH has a “Picture My Life” option that I like and is more affordable for me. LOL So I understand your decision! Love that the job change has opened this up as a possibility for you– I hope that you find smthg even better that you like even more! πŸ™‚ (My family are teachers, so I understand abt the time factor that goes into curriculum and class lesson development! OHMY!)
    You go girl! Love your posts and cannot wait to see what you come up with. πŸ™‚ ~ A

  2. Love it! Didn’t notice until you pointed it out that not all corners were rounded; looks fine as is, even has a balance with the opposite cornered cards not rounded. TFS! Can’t wait to see more.

What do you think?
