Tonight I am teaching a nail care class to a group of 12 year old girls. I'm ridiculously excited about it! Which is funny, because normally I HATE speaking to groups. I don't like to teach things and I don't like to be in front of people. I live in fear of being asked to teach or present anything. Despite what it probably seems like from my blog, I'm really quiet in real life except around people I know well (and those people probably wish I was quiet, lol). I generally prefer to sit in the back of the room and observe, not be in the front talking. I am not a social butterfly.
But I got asked to teach this class (it's a church youth group activity) and I immediately got excited. It's probably the first time in my whole life I've been excited to teach something. Yammer to a bunch of 12 year olds about nail polish and play nail salon with them? Yes please! I kind of feel like a 12 year old myself when it comes to my love of nail polish, lol.
So this afternoon I'm going through my supplies, deciding what to bring and what I'm going to show them. I'll teach them how to do nail art and how to file and paint their nails and all kinds of fun stuff. Yay for nail polish! :) I will let you know how it goes.
