Time sure flies when your having fun. Only 5 more weeks left of this school year then it's Vacation Time! Of the 4 years that I have been teaching, this is only the second year that I have taught an entire school year. I love being a teacher and working with my 3-5 year olds. They make me crazy and happy at the same time. I hope that I can continue teaching and making a difference in my students lives.

I have been dating this wonderful guy for the past 4 months and I am so lucky to have him in my life. We have done so much together since we have started dating. We have gone to the Main Street Arts Festival, ate at Lonesome Dove, gone to Jazz Fest in New Orleans, went to a Nickelback concert, seen the Texas Rangers play, gone to a Stars game, seen a concert at House of Blues. We have had so much fun together. After living at home with my parents for the past 2 years I am finally moving into my own apartment. I am excited to have my own place again. I have so much stuff in storage so it will be like Christmas when I unpack. Living on my own is a big step because that means I don't need anyone to take care of me anymore. I can now take care of myself.

It's been over a year since my transplant and the last time I went to see the doctor I talked to my transplant coordinator. I would love to get to meet my donor so I released my information so that I could be found. To meet we both have to agree to be found. Well they have had trouble contacting my donor so if she does not agree to release her information then I will never get to meet her. It makes me a little sad that I will not know the person that gave me the gift of life, but on the other hand maybe she doesn't want to be recognized as being a hero. I could never thank her enough for her gift. To do something like that for a perfect stranger gives me faith in others.
