holy smokes it’s been awhile

Oh my goodness, how long has it been? When I looked and saw I hadn’t posted something since May I couldn’t believe it! I guess that paints a pretty good picture at how crazy my life has been these last few months. Whew! In case you’re just dying to know, I’ll give a brief update of what’s been going on in my world since I last posted.

I guess the first thing that happened is that I moved. Not far, just into the town I work in/go to school in. When I moved my boyfriend also moved with me, so now instead of an empty house, I’m in a crazy house of 4! His cat Zeeke moved with him, and we decided to adopt our little Oli in July. We are definitely crazy cat people, but I’m ok with it. I guess it makes up for being too poor/continuously in school to have kids anytime soon. Right?!

Can you guess what their favorite activity is? 🙂

This fall I started my Practicum, so I am that much closer to being done with my Master’s, again. After this I SWEAR it’s going to be a good long time before I go back again. I’m at a Middle School two days a week and I love it. I love being in the school setting and getting to know the kids. It just feels good to know I’m moving in the right direction after second guessing myself so many times. In the Spring I’ll be at the high school 4 days a week and at an elementary school the other day, and I’m looking forward to those new experiences. I think my preferred population would be high school, so I’m anxious to get into that level, but so far I’m really enjoying the middle school!

Even with all those good feelings, this summer and semester has probably been the most stressful of all the years I’ve been in college. I often feel like I’m drowning, but I somehow always seem to be able to keep my head above water. I just can’t wait until this phase of my life is over. I can’t wait get a job in a great district and start my professional career. The light at the end of the tunnel is approaching!
