...the only thing that can ease the aftermath of one of the absolute worst days of your life is this:
A cheeseburger and frosty mug at Toads, giant storybook snowflakes you could actually taste on your tongue, and a walk down Main Street with one VERY excited little boy.
That's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
Someday, I'll reflect on yesterday, but I'm not there yet. I'm convinced I'm floating aimlessly through the stages of grief, however, I haven't identified where that is exactly. All I know is that my mind has been in about a million directions the last week and nothing seems to add up. The only thing I haven't questioned is the complete lack of transparency in, and confidence I have for the president of UNI. I undoubtedly believe he has forever changed the future of his so-called 'premier K-12 institute for teacher education.' What a shame...
