They say that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. I think global warming has mixed that proverb up a little, because following a period of chilly fog and huge wind storms mid-February, it’s been 60s and sunny for weeks.
However, March has come in with a brand new Slice of Life Story Challenge! I participated last year, thanks to my mom, and will attempt once again to tell a story on my blog each day during this month. Though I’m already really energized by reading others’ writing, I’m a bit nervous about my own, as this month has completely snuck up on me and I haven’t prepared nearly as well as I’d like to. But nevertheless, I will persist!
It helps that a lot has changed since last year’s challenge. Then, I was a full-time substitute teacher at an elementary school in Arlington, VA. Now, I’m an English as a Foreign Language teacher in three elementary schools in Marseille, France. Then, I spent my weekends eating pizza and running children’s birthday parties at a museum in DC. Now, I spend my weekends coloring flashcards and drinking wine next to the Mediterranean. Then, I was working towards coming back to France. Now, I’m here trying to figure out what to work towards next…
Looking forward to sharing some slices with you about all of these transitions, and everything I’ve been meaning to share, but haven’t had proper motivation to !!
À bientôt mes nouveaux amis! ❂
