Brighter Days

I wore this outfit on Easter Sunday, and even though it wasn't the most festive outfit, I still liked it. A comfy tee, skinny jeans, minimal jewelry, and sandals were perfect for a sunny stroll at the lake with my friend, Andrea. I was supposed to post this sometime last week, but I never got around to it because it was the hardest and longest week of this program so far! It was the first week of my new placement in a first grade classroom. I didn't think moving down two grade levels would make much of a difference, but let me tell you, it's a whole different world! These first graders are so energetic that I was just so drained physically and emotionally my first week. I miss my third graders. They were my first class and I will never, ever forget them, but I am really trying to make the most out of this experience. I can already see a difference in my abilities and confidence from my first day of my first student teaching placement to my first day at this placement. This week is my students' spring break so I can rest up a bit before resuming student teaching full time. I still have classes though so I'm not completely free, but I'm going to make the most of it. I am determined to purge my closet and to get to the gym at least three times. Summer's quickly approaching and for once, I would like to enjoy going to the beach and pool without feeling self conscious about my body. My friends and I are also planning to go on a trip shortly after my graduation so that's going to be another motivation to get more active and to finish the final stretch of my program.

  1. I love your outfit! The sandals are especially cute.

    I am a student teacher as well and am a few weeks into my second rotation with 3rd grade! It is so different from my first rotation in Kinder. Trust me, you will love those first graders just as much as your previous students!

    What were your biggest take aways from being with third grade?

  2. those sandals are the cutest, jasmine!!! :D

  5. Oooh, I love your watch! It's kind of the first thing my eyes drew to, along with your dainty little bracelets.

    And I feel you about the whole showing your body thing at the beach--I still refuse to appear anywhere in a swimsuit, lest it's a one piece (and still I'm not so confidence). I really believe it's in the head, not how you look. Here's to trying to be more confident? :) You're a lovely lady, and should feel comfortable how you are (though working out is a great way to achieve that!).

  6. Hi, yes this post is in fact pleasant and I have learned lot of things from it about blogging.
