    country is exciting but scary too. I'm nervous for my interview today. The people here are so different than what I'm used to. I really don't know what to expect in all of these situations but I want to face all my fears and prove to myself I can do this. Every day is a...

    I am starting a new job tomorrow

    and am beyond nervous! Being a lead teacher in charge of my own classroom, planning curriculum, observations, analysis, family involvement...I feel prepared but it's a little overwhelming for a shy & quiet personality like me, especially meeting the parents!

    I have no idea why this is bothering me now.

    And I feel I can't talk to him about it. -_- I wish I had the freedom to communicate how i want to even if uncomfortable. Just don't want a fight or him to think i'm judging him per se (lol) just wanna know why certain things don't add up.

    I made the decision that I'm not going to my

    step brothers dorm at midnight. But after he told me to come he said "If you don't I've got Hitler on speed dial". The Hitler part was just an insult to my religion but it obviously means he'll do some thing bad. I'm having a nervous breakdown just thinking about what he'll do!

    So today i have this must-win basketball game,

    if we win the game, we clinch our place for the playoffs, if we loose, we might not get to the playoffs. If we make it, on Friday we'll play the semi-final, and if we make it too, we'll play Monday the final. Wish me luck!
