sometimes a little wise?

Okay so as i sat down to eat an avocado for dinner (which lately seems to be a regular occurance) i decided to check my email and lo and behold i got an email from one of my dear sweet students. Now just to back up a little bit, this past week i might say i was a little stressed. Questions flying through my head about if teaching is something i really want to do or do i prefer the business world. I know i love kids but would i be better at doing something one on one rather than trying to teach a classroom. So of course all of these thoughts are somewhat pointless to have at the moment because i really have a while until i need to decide what i am going to do. plus i really felt like i was sucking (yes sucking-who knows if that is actually a word) at teaching. So i was probably throwing myself an unnecessary pity party. OKay so back to the reality....i checked my email and one of my sweet students had been emailing me and wrote:

My parents r getting redy 4 da Judo tournament, fixing up da house, and just relaxing!! Ya, I think the weekend does zoom by 2 fast 2.
How did u no bout the hole "dating" thing. I heard wen u were talking bout it and thought it was kindda cool that u new bout that kindda stuff. It's also cool that u teach kidds wen ur almost a kid ur self, u understand the way we think, sum times.
First off i love here spelling-and second the topic of conversation amongst these group of girls is always boys-we always talk about dating. And i feel like i am a broken record when i continually tell them boys should not be there main worry at that age. But apparently this little student thinks i know exactly what i am talking about. These girls have such low self esteem for being so young. If there was one thing i could leave with them this semester it would be just to love yourself the way you are regardless of what others think. So thank you my little student for making me feel like someone actually listens :)

You are wise. You know what you are talking about and your students see that!

Don't you just love those little reassurances?
