Ugh, it's 4pm and I'm ready for this day to be over.
My sister and I got in a huge fight this morning. It's extremely stupid and I know it's a misunderstanding between us both, but now we're not talking to each other. I tried to talk to her earlier and that just made it even worse. We're such opposite personalities that sometimes we majorly clash, and we're both super sensitive to boot. Ugly combination.
I'm still waiting on all my sub stuff to go through. For a school district that is in such a desperate need for subs they sure are taking a long time... :/
I've got a pretty light week for classes. There's not a lot that is due, which is good so I can take this time to maybe get a little ahead. I have a feeling that my schedule is going to get hectic pretty quick...
Friday I start my practicum for my Foundations of Education class. I'm working with a 2nd grade class here in West Des Moines. I'm going to be working in her room every Monday probably for the rest of the semester (if all goes well!). I'm just starting this Friday because we're both available. I'm a little nervous, but more excited! The Foundations class requires 40 hours to complete the practicum and 80 hours total for my entire program (there's another class that requires a practicum). 80 hours is what is required for the state of Iowa, but most other states require 100 so just to be safe I will probably try to hit the 100 hour mark. I don't plan on leaving Iowa, but you never know.
I am so ready to read Jodi Picoult's Sing You Home. I have been excited about it since last years book signing for House Rules! She brought up Sing You Home during her talk about House Rules and I knew it would probably be a book I would love.... it doesn't come out until March 1st and I'm already scouting out the booksellers that tend to put their books out a little early. Hopefully I get lucky!
What's going on in your world? Anything exciting happen this week?
