This week has been one of the craziest weeks I have ever had. From putting in my application for graduation, to having a meltdown in class, to “krumping” in front of 100+ people, I feel like I have hit all ends of the emotional spectrum. (I was even mad at my boyfriend for a whole day.) As crazy as I feel, I think this has been a constructive week.
For you who don’t know, Krumping:
No, I am no where even close to being kind of in the same league as this guy, but I pretended for 8 seconds. (This was for the spirit rally on 9/19/13.)
I want to thank Dr. Ellington for letting me have my 30 seconds. I really wish I could explain why I just melted, but I am sorry it happened. However, I do not know if I would be aware of the problems I have been having with my writer’s journal if I hadn’t. See, I haven’t been thinking about it for my future students. I have been thinking about it for me. I felt as though the notebook was my sacred space to be used to play, not something that I could actually use to grow as a teacher. Well, those days are over! I think I can actually write things to use in my journal and be okay with it. I need to stop acting like a student and start acting like a teacher. I have been calling this going into teacher mode. So, I have a whole new perspective and this perspective helps, a lot.
The application for graduation is not as bad as you’d think it would be, but doing loan exiting counseling is not so fun. My advice to future students, keep track of your student loans or you might end up like me and not realize just how much you have. This sounds like I have an immense amount of student loan debt, but I do not, it’s just more than I thought I would.
Many of you have probably heard of “The Fox” song. Well, the people who sing “The Fox” were on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and I learned that they did this whole thing to be funny. If you want a little laugh, watch this and perhaps watch other episodes.
One more thing, here’s my cat!
She is such a cute fatty and probably the best snuggle-bug I know; well, when she wants to.
