Normally by the end of the 2nd full week of school, I'm back in the groove of things...
But not this year.
This year, I feel completely out of place.
I don't feel part of a team any more... because I'm not.
Sure, everyone in my building is a friend of mine. I get along with them fine. But there is a difference when you struggle the same struggles and rely on others around you.
I am the only one in my boat.
People keep asking me how I like my new position.
All I can say is that I'm adjusting.
No one wants to hear that I feel like I've been dropped off the cruise ship in a little row boat and I'm out in the vast ocean rowing alone.
No, they want me to say that it is great! That it was the best decision ever made.
So, I keep telling myself that it will get better...
That I will enjoy all of this extra time...
That good things will come out of this.
But right now, I feel a little out of place.
Winter is coming and I feel it in my bones.
