I haven’t been avoiding you, blog. I promise!

I have been swamped with school work and the bumpy ride of life these last two weeks. Every day I say that I will post something…a small note that I’ll be back in the blog-sphere soon. But, somehow or another each day speeds past and this blog has fallen to the bottom of the list.

I’m sleep deprived and numb from all the work of being a full-time teacher and student, but I am in my final days of school work and I should be finishing up my portfolio tonight and tomorrow. I should be a licensed teacher soon.

A quick thanks to my close friends who pulled me up out of the gutter yesterday. I needed some major pep talks and you lent your ear and I am very grateful. I have been burning the candle at both ends and I am pretty much just a big pile of melted wax. Thanks for helping to lead me back to my form.

I have a million things I want to write, but not another second to spare. I will be back with updates next week.


Up A Creek

At least I still have a paddle…

Once again, I am late posting this week. This teaching stuff is messing with my head. After a 12 hour day yesterday, I came home and changed into my jammies and called it a night. It didn’t dawn on me until about an hour ago when Grey’s Anatomy came on that I had missed my Wednesday posting.

It has been a quiet week. I’ve been working away at my Mt. Everest of homework and I can report that as of Thursday evening, I have made it to base camp one. That isn’t super comforting, but it does mean that I’m making progress. Graduate school is not for sissies!

On top of all my homework, I’m also trying to get my resume in perfect order and begin the task of applying for teaching jobs. I went to a presentation at the career center on campus today and received some good information on how to tweak my resume and make it shine. I’ll take any shine I can get.

On a personal note – I’ve been pretty bad at taking care of myself: staying up too late, eating fast food, not exercising, not writing. I know that I need to get on a regular sleep schedule and I should get up earlier in the morning, but I just haven’t been able to manage that lately.

I’m going to work on at least trying a sleep schedule from now until Monday and see if that makes a difference in my energy level and my motivation to keep up on the stuff that matters to my soul, not just my education.

I’ll check in soon.
