Some Thoughts on Summer Grad School

Let's rewind to last semester. I was ALL ABOUT making the sacrifice and taking my 6 classes in 10 weeks and graduating early in December. I was positive I could handle all the homework (I didn't think there'd be as much as there is) and I thought for some reason, our professors would be cooperative... Continue Reading →

At the risk of jinxing myself, I'm going to go ahead and say that 2016 is off to a great start! In true list-loving, typical blogger form, here are my lists for 2016. Things I want to do Make it a point to see my friends more often.  I know we're all grown and super... Continue Reading →

On time and OOTW

When I worked in sales and advertising, my weeks always seemed to fly by since we worked on weekly deadlines and quotas.  It was something I hated and loved at the same time because while the weekend approached that much quicker, I felt like I never had time to savor the week. This year of... Continue Reading →

OOTW Success and Germs

So the outfit thing.  I guess it's going okay and last year wasn't that bad since one of my students from last year came by and told me she had nominated me for the "Best Dressed"  section of the yearbook.  I'll take it.  Except I won't because I feel like crap today and forgot to actually...

I'm going to miss working with her, the kids, and most of the teachers and staff. I really can't say enough positive things about... Continue Reading →

Well not again, but the class that was supposed to substitute the class which I had originally registered for but couldn't take because they canceled it was canceled. I'm taking it as a sign that I just need to rest this summer and go full force my last... Continue Reading →

Hindsight, poor planning, and finality

I could sit here and bitch and moan about UTB’s lack of a competent advising department.  I could, but I don’t have the time it would take to write about how much they suck. So instead I’ll just say I wasted between two and three semesters taking classes I didn’t need only to find out... Continue Reading →

Brain dead but feeling the need to express myself in more than 140 characters, yet finding nothing to say. Burned to my core, but thankful for one more semester being almost over and done with. One class to go. Student teaching. Done. Long awaited culmination. Decisions to be made. Talks to be avoided (had). Changes.... Continue Reading →
