I haven’t just written about what’s going on with me lately, so I thought I’d take a minute and jot a few things down.
I start school in a week. How gross is that? haha! I’m excited to get into teacher’s college (and get it finished) but I think it’s vomitous that it starts in August. Boooo! I’m having a bit of a hard time getting myself excited to start. I think that’s largely due to the fact that everything is still so.. up in the air.
At my teacher’s college we have absolutely no choice in our classes. So, I was originally supposed to get my class schedule on August 1st. That date came and went without any sign of my classes. Eventually I received an email stating that I would have my schedule by August 15th. Well, here we are on the 16th–less than 10 days before I start class–with no schedule. *sigh*
Also, trying to arrange rides to my placements has been a HUGE source of stress for me. Again, we have no choice in where we are placed for our teaching practicums, and our first one begins immediately in September. I was assigned to a small rural town about 35 minutes from Senior’s City. When I read the letter I immediately started stressing inside about how the heck I would get there. We are reeeally trying to avoid purchasing a car until we are finished school, or at the very least until December / January when it’s cheapest to buy one. So, I’ve been trying to contact people in my program to see if it was possible to carpool with someone. I thought I had it all worked out until I learned that the girl I hoped to carpool with is in the primary / junior program which has placements on different days than I do. So, after more stress I was contacted by not one, but TWO wonderful people offering me rides to placement. I now have rides at least until October, and hopefully through the first term. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
So, that’s where I’m at. Hopefully I’ll have some more positive updates for you in the next week as I prepare for my classes… I have to start buying my books soon. Eeek.
But you know what? ONE MORE YEAR. And then I am SO finished. HOO HAH!!!!!
P.s. The Hubs and I celebrate anniversary #3 on Wednesday. :)
