Y'know, what? I'm not dead. Holy shit, does it feel like it, these days, though. There is a lot going on and a lot to come.
  • I'm in the midst of my MET program. Yes, I got in! I'm just taking one course now and struggling a bit with how the whole online course thing works. I'm not convinced I like it more than a regular course yet. I couldn't have gotten this degree here, though, so there ya go.
  • "Job school" is frigging busy. I like all my news kids (aside from some annoying behaviours), though, which is great. I just feel out of my element when it comes to kids in my upper grades that aren't "up to snuff". What the Hell am I supposed to do with some kids who are a couple or seven (yes, seven) years behind in ability? Why should my job compound like that? Days like today, I think this job is for chumps. I'm sure I'll get over it, though. I always have in the past.
  • I'm helping to pilot a new L.A. program this year.
  • I'm DJ-ing for another teacher's business sometimes now. I've done 4 so far. Not too bad of a gig. I get anxious, but then I'm fine when I'm there.
  • I'm getting a student teacher for a month in November!
  • Our house reno (we added a porch) is almost done. Can't wait 'til it IS!
  • I have no idea what to do with my hockey pool yet.
There's some other things floating around in my head/life, too, but this is enough for now. Just to let you know I'm alive and the ol' blog ain't totally dead.
