School is starting again. I have one semester of classes, student teach in the fall and then the real world, finally. I am excited to get to that point, but nervous. I survived Fall 2010 hell semester to have another one come this spring. I'm being more pro-active and will not be a procrastinator this time. I usually am not, but last semester it just happened. I got a 98 on the ridiculously hard 200+ page resource notebook. The teacher love my lessons and unit plan!!Dr. L is so hard to please. I struggled immensely in the class. I basically failed the teaching midterm and worked my ass off to improve. It was worth it. Got a B+ in the class.
Ken and I are starting to plan wedding stuff. Money is the biggest issue. My dad says he'll help while conveniently omitting how much. We're trying to save. It's slow and the bank accounts aren't growing fast. I just wish dad would be like 'You're my last girl. I'll cover it all!" That would be a miracle for sure. It won't be that much. It sounds like Ken's sister's wedding is reaching around $25,000. HOLY SHEESH. Ours budgeted out is below $10,000.
My non practicing student dutifully returns every semester. I hope she starts to practice. When she does there is great improvement. Maybe I'll get a few more this semester! I could use the money.
I hate Target. I'm over the whole situation, but I cannot find a job at this time that will accomodate weekends only and pay more than Target. It sucks big time. Eventually I will be done there. I will not stay there after I'm done school. I will find something else...ANYTHING. Managers aren't very respectful. They pressure/guilt you into coming in to work or twist your words. I was hung up on by a manager when I called out one day. I think I've called out 4 times in the 1+ year I've been there. I know ppl that call out at least twice a month and nothing happens. Oh well.
Someday I'll be married, teaching, and doing what I want! YAY!
