I play the Clarinet, and I'm hoping the music I make with it will one day inspire my students. My interests include hiking, gardening, cooking, home decorating, hello kitty, and everything else creative, girly, and cute.
The URL is teaching-blog because that is exactly what the purpose of this blog will be in a few years. I’m a bit too excited to wait on creating a blog for this purpose. In a few years I will be somewhere in the world teaching Elementary Music for the first time. I will be very, very nervous, and I will need a place that I can write about my struggles and achievements. I will share ideas that I can do for the classroom, and get comments, compliments, or criticism for all of them (hopefully). I want this to be a place that I can grow and learn from my mistakes. This will be my connection to the people back at home. Sure, I could just use Facebook, but this seems more creative. I can also post my own pictures of Italy, Japan, or Turkey, or whenever I might be so it can be like a little travel journal as well.
But, for now… I don’t have much going on in my life besides school, so I reblog a lot. It seems pointless, but I’m excited for the day that my whole life will turn around. It’s part of the reason why I want to teach abroad… I just want to force myself to be in a new place so I can be out of my shell. To be honest, I hate the way I am. I really hate how I’m quiet and I don’t (want to) do anything with people. Day to day I want to stay at home where it’s comfortable and safe, but every few weeks I get lonely and I desire an exciting life.
I made my title “Wanderlust” because I had just learned the word today and I realized that it describes me very well. “A desire to travel, to understand one’s very existence.” I don’t think that needs any more explaining lol.
