Last night we went to the opening of an exhibit here in town. My bosses were going to be there as well as my teaching partner and one of the moms from school. I ran into my sixth grade teacher there who is now a county supervisor. He said hi to me! I saw him first and didn't think he'd recognize me. I forgot that they make everyone (mostly) put on a name tag. There aren't many Filipino girls with my same name running around here. I also ran into a few other people I knew through my work at my school. It was sort of surreal. I can tell you that when I taught in LA, I highly doubt that I'd run into people at events such as the one we attended so it was nice. I liked the feeling of being 'known.' My boss who is retiring this year is the one who knows everyone so she was introducing me to a few people and adding that now that I'm at her school, she can retire. (talk about making a girl blush!)
Well, amidst all the madness (yes, it was madness. the place was packed and the food was super delish!), the hubs got photographed for one of the local papers.
