Epiphanies and Midnight Hikes

No, the two do not go together...

This weekend Brian and I decided to go up to camp so I could take him out to Inspiration Point. This is the camp that I spent my high school summers working at. I wanted to take him at night because it's out in the middle of nowhere so there are no lights (other than a far off glow over a ridge from our city) and you can see all the stars! This was the perfect weekend what with Monday off and all. We were going to cross country ski out there, but considering it was very icy and I haven't been on x-country skis in years and Brian never, we decided to walk. It was a good decision. It was also all of about 15 degrees out so we didn't stay at the point long. But long enough to get this picture of the stars!

And then Brian got in some games... don't ask me what this one was, something with spiders I think. I wasn't really paying attention, I was knitting!

The epiphany I had the other day: It occurred to me that being up in front of a classroom doesn't intimidate me anymore. I'm in a different classroom almost every day so it almost doesn't matter what the kids think of me. Of course I do get to know some of them after awhile, but somehow it doesn't matter. I wonder if it will be the same when I get my own class or if I will want them to like me more. I don't know, my mom's kids still liked me after 2 weeks and I didn't let them get away with too much! I was going to write this to my professor, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I wonder if any of his students this year are having as many self doubt issues as I was last year...
