How did I get here?
So I, the older half of two ladies and no baby, had a very weird epiphany today. Have you ever stopped and thought, how in the world did I get here? I had parent teacher conferences today and while I was getting ready for one of the conferences I had this overwhelming feeling of bewilderment. I kept thinking how did I get to this point in my life, I am giving grades to kids, what? I remember being in 2nd grade, vividly even, and now I'm Mrs. Stanton sitting down with parents and giving grades to students. Did I really finish high school, let alone college? It really just hit me like a ton of bricks, I was almost out of breath, I'm sure my eyes were wide, and my face was blank. I really was at a loss. Luckily I had about 8 more conferences to help me forget about my feelings of doubt and confusion. When you are going through day to day life it seems to be going slow, but in retrospect life flies by. I remember coming home from school and watching Saved by the Bell everyday, I remember my Mom getting on my back about practicing the piano, I remember being the V.I.P in my class, I remember my mom telling me to go to bed when it was still light outside, it wasn't that long ago I swear. Don't get me wrong life's great and I'm happy about where I am it's just crazy that now I'm 22 with a career and I don't even know how it happened. Wow!
