Moving On

Hello followers and visitors! Thanks for reading my blog for the last two years! I have really enjoyed writing it, and have taken some time to look back and reflect on my experience. It is a great "live journal" for what I am doing now on staff for Teach for America. There are many moments of weakness that I had, and I love that I have the opportunity to look back at my thoughts on those hard times whenever I want.

I am now going to be moving to a new blog... because well, it's not longer Delta, What? or CBB in the Delta! I have moved to Texas to work with a different region still in the TFA network.

Because of the nature of my work, this new blog will not be so much a journal of my daily experiences. Instead I will be writing about general musings on life and funny anecdotes! Please feel free to follow me there, or contact me any other way. I don't want to lose my virtual loves!

Again, thanks for partaking, reflecting, and reacting on my posts. I have really grown these last two years, more than I probably realize right now. These are def my most formative years, and it was great to have a safe and constant outlet.

My new blog: Crisp. Brash. Blissful. CBB.

Last Ctown Visit

Had a wonderful dinner in Clarendon tonight. Went out with some future TFAs and then met for dinner with my favorite Clarendon employee: Gilda. During dinner three of my favorite students stopped by when they saw my car (I almost cried again). Then, as I was driving out of town four students were screaming my name down the road, so I stopped and got to say goodbye to them again.

This experience sure was difficult. Without some close friends I don't know what I would have done. But, furthermore, without the students, I absolutely don't know what I would have done. They are what made me consider a third year. Not the TFA core values or beliefs. Not the faculty. Not the administration. Absolutely those crazies that would scream across town, or stop their cars just to give a hug or say hello.

I am super happy I spent one of my last nights in the Delta doing that. Happy feelings, happy endings.
