I was gonna write something more here but I'll simply say: "I'm back."
Last year was a very successful year. Most, if not all, of my students achieved what they set out to if not exceeded their own expectations. I'm so proud of each and every one of them and desperately will use facebook to try and keep in touch. I really stink at using facebook, though. I personally despise it so much I refuse to capitalize it and give it proper noun status.
I'll post some thoughts here. This is what I'm thinking of right now: Fear. Fear stops us from doing so many things. Fear of change. Fear of the unknown. Fear of failure. Those are really the three on my mind right now. I'm sitting here, looking at this letter of instruction from the Philly OSS concerning a 5-mile Medal of Honor run right now and wondering: will I be able to keep up?
I guess there's only one way to really find out - respond, attend, succeed. If I'm gonna do this, I gotta start showing a little backbone and commitment.
Tangents aside, I'm looking forward to this year. I'm looking forward to guiding and teaching my new students, to bettering myself physically and confronting new challenges, and finally, to growing as a human being. Let's see what 2011 brings.
