...the end of the year

Tomorrow is the last day of my contract for this year.  I made it.  Whew!  There were times that I wondered just what in the world I had done to myself, but overall it has been a good experience.  There is really no reason for us to be at school this last week. We are all just sitting around, drinking coffee, talking, reading, and playing on our computers. I laugh at myself because even right up to the end I expected different outcomes.  I thought we'd have these two weeks without students for planning and preparing for next year.  But when I came in last week and saw that our computers were boxed up, ready to go into storage I knew that our work was finished. 

It appears that no one in our English department has been transferred--a very good thing.   I am grateful for the women in my office--they are kind, generous, and funny. We make a good team and work well together. I look forward to next year--there are even rumors of us having our very own classrooms!

As positive as the year has been, I am ready to get out of here for a bit.  Next stop--Paris!

I thіnκ that what уou composed

supροsе уou compoѕеd a сatсhier title?
I am not suggesting youг information isn't good., but what if you added a post title that makes people want more? I mean "...the end of the year" is kinda vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo's front page and note how thеy сreаte nеws titleѕ to
get pеople to cliсk. You mіght try adԁing a vіdeo οr
а relаtеd pіc or two tο
get readerѕ іnteresteԁ about what you've written. Just my opinion, it might make your website a little bit more interesting.
