Sorry for the hiatus everyone! Internship is absolutely crazy. There's just so much to get done. But now I've made it to the halfway point. I'm slowly but surely getting to the end and graduation. I have now switched to my second placement, which is entirely different from the first. I mean I knew it … Continue reading Sorry!
It's here. And nearly over as well. Finals week. Another horribly hard week of the semester. Though this semester has seemed a little better than other finals weeks I have experienced. Even without a computer to use at home. But I think that's part of what's made it so easy. I wasn't able to procrastinate … Continue reading Finals
So this blog was started as an assignment for a class this semester. It was something that I had to do for a grade. I worked on it trying to post regularly, sometimes failing horribly but picking it back up the next week. And with this post I've reached the required number for the class. … Continue reading Blogging
Week before finals. The time when I am constantly working on projects or homework of one kind or another and my computer decides that now would be the best possible time to start messing up. I don't know what happened. One minute it was absolutely fine the next it was screaming at me and shutting … Continue reading Why Now?!
For one of my finals I have to create a unit plan that centers around a social justice issue within a book. It's something that we've been slowly working on all semester, from choosing our book in the first week of school to presenting proposals and rationales for the focus of our project. So that … Continue reading Unit Plan
Ok. I'm getting in on the E-reader vs. print debate. It's one that certainly has divided the reading community because most people are staunch supporters of one side or the other. I rarely see anyone that doesn't take sides. And I'll admit I used to stand with the print group. I love the feeling of … Continue reading E-Reader vs. Print
It's the worst week of the semester. That's right the week before finals week is finally here. In all it's frantic, anxiety-filled, stress-inducing glory. For the next one hundred and sixty-eight hours my life will be consumed with thoughts of school and finals. It may not actually be finals week just yet but it's the … Continue reading Worst Week of Semester
Previously I made a post about my experience with a crashed Praxis test and the anxiety and panic caused by that. At the time I thought that was going to be the worst moment of my life for some time. Well this weekend I was proven wrong. In most respects it was a totally normal … Continue reading I Was Wrong
So much relief! I finally finished the major project for a class today. It's been something that we've worked on all semester so it's never not been a present thing. Which makes it really weird that I now never have to think about it again, except when I get my grade back. It was something … Continue reading It’s Done!
Now that thanksgiving break is over it's time to start the downhill slide of this semester. Yep. It's time for the last three weeks of school, which will feel like a constant downward spiral of work and projects and studying for finals. Thanksgiving break was great, being able to relax for several days, sleeping in … Continue reading Back to Work
