This is the first post in my new blog. I feel it's appropriate to move on from livejournal to my own personal blog. I first started blogging when I moved to Buffalo and started college. Seeing as I am embarking on my journey as a Middle School teacher in the Bronx, it is only appropriate that I start blogging with a clean slate, right?
On Thursday, I will be beginning my career as a teacher. That's right, a career. And, yes, I am 22 years old. And of course, this scares me half to death. I never would have thought, as a freshman at UB that I would be sitting here today, in this lopsided Brooklyn apartment, preparing lessons for 100 seventh graders. Never in my wildest dreams. Nobody in my entire family has had a career before the age of 25 or so. I find myself worrying that I am rushing growing up.
Still, on Thursday, ready or not, I am officially Ms. Carrancio. Yikes.
