I got my field experience placement today! I'm so excited! It's a third grade classroom. The only thing I am nervous about is that we have to actually teach one lesson with the head of the ed department watching. I know I write awesome lessons and I can give awesome demo lessons to my classmates, but actually being in the classroom and teaching... I'm very nervous but excited about it!

Writer's Block: Touch-Screen Pros & Cons [18 Sep 2009|12:21am]
How could touch-screen technology enhance the way you currently use your PC? How could it make things worse?
I think it would be fun, and would have the potential to make computers more accessible/easier to use for some people.

So a lot of kids in Zach's class are taking soccer this year. I don't think a four year old needs to be on a soccer team, especially when registration is about $100. Yikes.

I stopped caring... long before you started to cry

...that has to be one of my favorite lines in a song ever.

Back to school for me and Zach today. Good times. Working on a zine, it's coming along very nicely, I'm very pleased.

Went on a job interview today, didn't get the job. Thinking about subbing.

I did something kind of mean today. I find it a little bit funny actually, but I do feel bad.

Writer's Block: Birthday Shout-out [31 Jul 2009|08:27pm]
Happy birthday, J.K. Rowling! Which of her seven Harry Potter novels do you think is the most satisfying read?
I love all seven Harry Potter books, but my favorites are the sixth and third. Tales of Beedle the Bard is pretty decent, too.

What's your favorite dessert?
Don't make me choose! As of today I'd have to say...
-vanilla ice cream w/ peanut butter and whipped cream
-zach's great grandma's lemon delight
-chocolate mousse

Been watching Roseanne a ton, which makes me laugh so much; and starting to exercise, which makes me feel good.

Finished my website (for school) which I worked very hard on.

I saw a poster at the movie theatre for the movie "Holmes" (as in Sherlock) and the first thing I thought was "They made a movie about Oliver Wendall Holmes?"

[19 Jun 2009|12:43am]
so i jsut read this old journal entry
where i say i saw the movie 'forgotten' and i find that i totally forget wtf that movie even was. i read a synopsis of it and still don't know. yay for crappy movies.

I went under my bed searching for a case to a now-overdue DVD from the library and my copy of What It Is by Lynda Barry. Sadly I did not find the book, but in addition to the DVD case (phew!) I found the following items:

-A box set of The Godfather Trilogy
-A creepy magazine with a close-up of Arnold Schwarzenegger on the cover
-Two perfectly intact spiral notebooks (one green, one blue)
-An ancient fucking sippy cup, no way am I gonna touch it
-A mix CD a boy made for me in high school
-Lots of unpopped popcorn kernals

I remeber when I got the bed... maybe it was a year ago? A year and a half? I know Zach was maybe two because he was climbing on on all the beds in the store... anyhow, when I got the bed, I remember I was super embarrassed becase when they hauled out my old bed there were a TON of (unused!) condoms under it. Like, two dozen or more, and I just scopped them all up real quick before they came back in.

it is so hard for me to do computer-based work. i get so easily distracted!

sometimes i can't believe i'm still in school. people who graduated high school the year i did graduated college this year and i am still not done. i've got two more years. i'll have a b.a. and a m.a.t. when i'm done, but still. i'm tired.

by the way, you should visit my website. i update it often so check on it!
actually, it's pretty much nothing right now, but perhaps you'll like the name i came up with for my fake elementary school, and the names of the students in my fake class.

give me some inspiration.
what's the best zine you've read recently?

[11 May 2009|11:09pm]
I kind of admire people who blog regularly on their cool blogs. It's something I wish I had the will/attention span to do myself.

One of my professors said my semester project was the best one she'd ever read. I'm quite proud.

[27 Apr 2009|12:16am]
feel like i got a lot done today, which is nice.
now it's getting down to crunch time.

in the next three weeks:

9 papers
2 portfolios
2 books to be read
5 tests

+ a volunteer day at zach's school
+ hopefully a job interview!

I'm applying for a teacher's aide job! Typing up my resume as we speak. I know all I'm doing right now is applying but I'm so nervous and excited! How awesome would it be to have a real job in a school? Keep your fingers crossed for me!

[20 Apr 2009|11:41pm]
okay, so there's this math teacher i had in high school who is now a professor at the college and he is so frigging sexy i can't stand it!
