The teachers meet in the faculty room as the school buses pull up outside. Bekah obliged Brooklyn’s request to coach the soccer team, despite her baby being due in the middle of the season.

Neither Bekah nor Rosabella wanted the extra task, and Brooklyn could use the money. Everyone knew that Oliver was studying for his Masters, Bekah especially since he was hoping to replace her best friend, Lucy when she retired.

I graduated med school last June, and have a fancy MD tacked at the end of my name, but I still have four more years left of residency to be a surgeon. Neil is going to be a General Practitioner, and already has more responsibilities and trust than I do, which is perturbing. I understand that in the end, I will be light years ahead of him, but being treated like I’m ignorant because my residency is longer is asinine.

It’s my second year at Eastborough, and it’s just starting to feel like I belong here. My Freshmen year was difficult, I missed my family, and felt guilty for not missing them enough, especially Nolan. I’m trying to really throw myself into the college experience this year, I’m still studying to be a journalist. It’s always been my goal, but I sort of lost my desire after Nolan was born. I’ve gotten it back though, and my dorm mate Brooklyn has been part of the reason.

I had been thrilled that Brooklyn would be at Linden Dormitory with me, unfortunately we were not assigned as dormmates, and instead I was stuck with Lauren. Even though Isaac broke up with her after he left for college, I can’t even begin to forgive her or feel sorry for her. She made Julia’s life miserable, saying that Nolan wasn’t Isaac’s baby, when it obviously is his kid.

We were fortunate to receive budgeting to expand the high school, now we are better able to equip the teenagers of the county for the real world. Unfortunately we are very short staffed, so the teachers we do have, are doubling up on duties for the time being.
