Here goes nothin'!

Well, I'm just gonna be honest. I enjoy occasionally reading other people's blogs, but never thought I had enough interesting stuff to write about. At least, not enough to write outside of my journal where other people could read all my thoughts and dorky stories. It's not often that I have some great revelation to share, and Huntington sure doesn't have much exciting stuff that happens. But I'm doing this "101 things in 1,001 days", and I guess you're supposed to create a blog to go with it. So, here's mine :)
I'm not officially starting my 1,001 days until February 20th, so I still have a few days. Plus, I'm only on like #78 with my list- so I need to hurry my butt up and finish my goals. But I wanted to play around on here a little before starting the project. Tonight was pretty exciting b/c I finished my Literacy Tutor training, and I'm beyond excited to meet with my reader!!! I don't think I can write anything about him b/c I'm pretty sure the stuff is confidential, but I'm so excited for this opportunity :) And I can already tell this is going to be an awesome experience, even though I'm a little nervous. Seriously, I'm not sure that 6 hours of training makes me capable of teaching someone how to completely go from not being able to identify letters, to passing the GED. But I'm ready to give it my best! Anyway, this is enough for tonight. The tutoring will obviously be one of the first goals I work on accomplishing. And maybe I should add "Trying not to trip and fall after the age of 27" since I just about broke my wrist and face on my front porch a few minutes ago. Geez. I'm never going to escape my dorkiness.
