Today was a long day. Got to school early, did a bunch of stuff, tested for hours, did a bunch of stuff, afternoon classes, did a bunch of stuff, night class, home (dinner, watch This Is Us, and now here we are).
(Are you watching this show? So many feels!)
I was thinking to myself… it has been a day and I am way too tired to blog. I should have pre-written it. I need to shower and get cozy so I can read because I have two more days to finish my book, Little Monsters, before book club on Friday…
Then I thought to myself… book club? Who am I? My mom was a librarian, I had to read a bazillion hours a day before I could watch TV, I don’t like reading! I would have never joined a book club! (Granted, they enticed me with talks of cocktails!)
Now, I like my down time to read a good book. I like going to book club! Even if I do enjoy the drinks more than the book chat.
So this then got me thinking to myself… what other things did I not enjoy when I was young, but now I’ve changed my mind??
*I never would have thought I would be a teacher! The plan was to be a dolphin trainer because I didn’t want to work with people. Now, I teach middle schoolers! I am around people all. day. long.
*I used to never want children. If I was going to have a child someday, I would adopt because the idea of pregnancy sounded like torture. Now, I can’t imagine not wanting that in my future and being so happy for those having little ones around me!
*I never, ever thought I would like spinach… but I no longer pick it out of my foods! In fact, sometimes I even add it in! But it’s still a hard no on brussel sprouts, because some things never change.
It’s interesting how sometimes those “I told you so” moments come back into your life; it’s like a light bulb goes off that should have been changed years ago. Better late than never?
Anyways, I am tired and I do need to shower, pack tomorrow’s lunch and read for book club because it’s after 9 so it is getting late. (Who am I??)
Anything you thought you would never do but someone told you so??
