Six classes, eighteen credits and countless hours of working on lesson plans, teaching and reflecting done. I know I did well this semester, despite being extremely busy, so why do I have the blues? Yesterday as I left my last class I just felt .... weird. I've chalked it up to post productive blues. You do all that work and then ... it's over.
I think exhaustion is just setting in and I need a break. A break to do nothing. But, when you haven't done nothing for awhile, you don't really know how to do it anymore. I cannot just do nothing. I'm thinking about how many books I want to read this semester or how I should get ahead on the reading for my summer classes, or clean the house... or ... or.... or... it doesn't stop!
Public school doesn't get out for a couple more weeks, so hopefully I can sub as much as possible. I also really need to start working more at the agency. I did SO GOOD in March, and worked an insane amount of hours, but April and May happened and my productivity there tanked. They're sort of on my case about it and hopefully I can pick up the slack the rest of the month and throughout the summer.
I'm also hoping and praying I get some tutoring and babysitting jobs this summer. Yes, I said babysitting. I considered nannying, I know that would be so much fun, but I'm pretty sure it's a little too late for that now. Plus, I would want a family I at least know a little bit... Through my tutoring this semester at Greenwood a couple teachers have my number so I hope they call.
I'm taking four summer classes, but they all start at different times. The first one starts Monday, but it's online, so I can really create my own schedule. This is exactly what I need. Two of the classes are middle school classes (one on curriculum and the other on adolescent development), then my last special ed class (hallelujah!) and an adolescent lit class - which, I am SO EXCITED for! I've already seen the list of books and I am PUMPED! (I'm also a nerd).
Anyway, so that is what is going on with me. Finals are over. My spring 2012 semester is over and I only have two more semesters to go (summer and fall) before I student teach. This crazy ride is almost over and I can't believe it!
What are your plans this weekend? Anything fun?
