28 and counting...

Today is my 28th birthday. Is it weird to say that I've actually felt like I have been 28 for the past six months now? It was a pretty low-key birthday. My students were quite excited about it and there was a rousing round of happy birthday in some of my classes. Today was a good day with my students. We didn't necessarily get through 100% of what I set out for us to accomplish, yet, we did have some fun. I feel like I've been lecturing them quite a bit lately and we've been bickering and the constant power struggle continues. But I felt like today we all let loose a little bit. I'm sure it won't last through tomorrow but I felt like I made some progress with many of my 'difficult' students. Maybe it is because I had a great weekend and I was still in a pretty good mood, and they just responded to my good mood. Either way, it was a good day, if not overly birthday-ey. 

I am very much looking forward to this weekend. I have plans on both Friday and Saturday night and I am definitely ready for the weekend to be here. Sad, I know. It's only Monday and I'm ready for the weekend. It's more because I'm excited for what I have planned than anything else. Friday my every-so-kind, former roommie, Shannon, has offered to host a birthday party for me. It won't be anything fancy but we are having empanadas. Yum! 

Good times, my friends...good times!
