*A few words about December.
I had a very relaxing December this year. The quarter ended at NSCC on December 3rd, and the 4th was my last day as a full teacher at Kaplan. (Now I’m just a substitute). I spent my time catching up on sleep from the chaos of fall quarter, reading, and cooking (believe it or not). I went to NC on the 17th and spent a great week there visiting family and friends.
After Christmas I spent a few days with my brother in Atlanta, stopping in SC for lunch with some of my best friends. Congratulations to Chasity and Nic on their engagement; Michelle and I will be Co-Maids of Honor, along with our friend Janelle!
I came back to Seattle in time for New Year’s and celebrated at Mark and Heather’s. We rang in the New Year with a champagne toast on their balcony while watching the fireworks over the Space Needle, and then had an impromptu dance party until almost 2 in the morning! The party continued for a few of us with a sleepover at Christina and Jess’s after that.
A month without work and full of celebrating with family and friends on both coasts? It doesn’t get much better than that!
