I've been slacking with stamping and blogging lately:(
I started my new job... I am working 3 days a week at two middle schools providing therapy for the middle schoolers. This is scary to me since I can not advise myself out of a paper bag. Somehow though I have to try to help these kids help themselves. They're pretty cute... awkward, gangly, self conscious, thinking they know it all but really desperate for approval and attention. I have to be careful though not to project my issues... if you asked me if I would rather go back to middle school/high school or submit to acts of torture, I would say what's the difference?
I put on a big front that I don't like children and don't want to be saddled with the responsibility but really I'm scared... that I won't be able to do it right, that I won't be able to protect them. So right now I am trying to help a bunch of kids break their little punk shells that they have built to protect themselves.
