Sabbatical is on!

Last Wednesday, after waiting for weeks for sabbatical news to show up in my mailbox, I was lucky enough to find out from a friend at work instead -- I got it!! It was surreal, it was exciting, my heart raced, and I was sure I wanted to do it. Well, like 80% sure. But I gave myself a week to sift through my reaction, and realized that I absolutely 100% want to do it.  I'll get to do so many things I've always wanted to do, and the timing in my life couldn't be more perfect. So, after a deep breath and a sad goodbye to my 11th grade students, I mailed in my acceptance! I also picked the brains of about 17 of my friends from about 15 different countries and officially registered on WWOOF Argentina, WWOOF Spain, WWOOF Portugal, and Work Away. It's happening!!!



As luck would have it, I also had the opportunity at work to say to a 15 year old boy, in all professionalism and seriousness, "no, I am not asking you to measure your penis." Now I am officially 110% sure I'm ready for a sabbatical.
