I never have a been a great fan of roller coasters - I know that they can be thrilling at times, but other times the rapid, constant ups and downs tend to make me nauseous. My life right now feels like I am stuck on a roller coaster - and my emotions can't seem decide whether they want to be up or down.

They all complimented me on the teaching I had done in their class, stating that they really learned from me and that they appreciated my teaching techniques.
