Deep Thoughts (and whatnot)

Random thoughts and general nonsense, posted while I probably should have been studying.

  1. Long time, no post!

    Wow, my last post was on 9/9 and that was only just to add a book to my book list. Yikes!

    I started a new job shortly thereafter, at a new school, teaching 3 (3!) new grade levels, and it's really cutting into my leisurely computer-internet browsing time. I can't complain too much, since I was figuring I wouldn't have a teaching job at all this fall after being laid-off in June, but I'm still kind of in shock to find myself in middle school. It's taking all of my energy just to ...
  2. Book list 2010

    Last year I read 39 books, but I was in school and working on my thesis for almost 5 of those months. I'm curious to see what will be the final count at the end of this year now that I have my free time back. I talked about goal setting with my students today and I told them I hoped to read 50 books--yeah, so I threw that out in the hopes that they would make at least one of their goals academic. I was getting a lot of video game-based goals from the boys in my class, so I wanted to get them ...

  3. Seriously

    It's been way too long since I did any blogging. My last post was back at the beginning of the summer, and I never did follow up on my WDW vacation. (It was great, btw.) The fact is I'm burnt out on writing. After finishing my thesis it's been nice to not be tied to the computer all the time! I went to San Francisco and left my computer at home and I felt no anxiety. I left my cell phone at work last week and nothing horrible happened. I'm kind of enjoying being unplugged lately, and with ...
  4. Summer Vacation

    I think today is Saturday. (It is, right?)

    My school is over, teaching is over, my son is out of school, we've done a week at WDW, and aside from getting the boy to tennis lessons twice a week, I have no schedule. It's really, really weird.

    The WDW vacation deserves a post of its own, so I'll do that later when I have more time. (I know, I know, it looks like I've got nothing but time right now, but I'm just not feeling very creative since we've been home. Lazy is more ...
  5. All righty then...

    I am days away from turning in my thesis and reaping my rewards, in the form of a master's degree in education. Tuesday is our last class meeting, Thursday is the master's hooding ceremony, and Saturday is the actual graduation. It's been a long two years and now the end is finally here.

    My husband is pretty sure I'll go back to school in a few years from now, that I can't turn down an academic challenge. I said no. After I presented my paper to my class, the professor pulled ...
