Good grief! I am EXHAUSTED! We all returned to school this week. Well, all but my slacker 18 year old. Me, Fiance, other 2 kids… and we were all off schedule and having a VERY lazy summer and staying up late and doing a lot of nothing.
I am BEAT and still have one day left. Not to mention intimidated as all hell. Not the norm for me either but have had 2 professors this week talk about how their class is “historically difficult” and another that scares me anyway (math, always scares me).. and then another that is hard for me in general even without any “warnings”, my second year Spanish class. Looks like I’m in for a ton of paper writing, extra requirements for lab and supplemental instruction (required for my History course!) and in general a LOT of work!
I am already missing my fun and laid back Psych classes! Yeah they are hard for some I guess but it is so natural to me and I love it. Just always fun. 🙂 I’m usually more excited about school but with wedding planning I want to focus on just ONE and I can’t.
Thank goodness Fiance and I are taking 3 out of 4 classes together this semester… we only have different math courses as she is ahead of me one level. Saves on books and we have built in study partners (and naggers in each other! lol!)
We are both freaking out about Spanish though.. we took the previous course together and got B’s, both of us, but I think the Professor really liked us and I’m wondering what kind of curve he used. 😉 I mean, I don’t feel ready for this new class at ALL and neither does she. 🙁 I feel like I learned it last semester but now it’s gone! I can’t remember anything about reflexive verbs or stem changing or any of it! Even more intimidating/discouraging is the fact that about 80% of the class is made up of native Spanish speakers just in there for the easy A!
SO how are you other students (or teachers? professors?) dealing with the first week back?

I don’t start until Monday but I’m sure I will be feeling beat up by the end of that week! I’m a biochem major and absolutely love chemistry but really can’t stand biology.
I’m taking 17 units of biology this semester.
On the upside, I graduate in May!!

Oh. My. Goodness. Don’t even get me started! I’m student teaching this semester, and I don’t feel like I’ve even had time to breathe this week! This is the first time that I’m really sitting down all day – it’s been so incredibly insane! But, I really really love it, so it’s a good thing!
My blogging is definitely going to suffer this next week or so as I try to adjust to everything! This is just pure craziness! 🙂

Definitely exhausted! As a kindergarten teacher I’ve definitely been through the wringer this week. Amazingly there have been minimal tears and no potty accidents! Favorite quote of the week, “Miss D, I wish you were my mommy”…makes it all worth it! Looking forward to a celebratory HH tomorrow with the other kinder and 1st teachers!!

My mom is on her 31st year of teaching. She has 25 kindergartners and she is exhausted!
(But, I think I would be, too!!)

@cardigan — I student taught last fall and it was SO exhausting but I absolutely loved being there for the start of the year. You see them grow and change so much in just a few months. I definitely recommend going back to see them at the end of the year too… it’s so, so fun seeing how far they go in one year!! Good luck!! 🙂

I’m in my last year of school! The first week has been rough…I felt like it should’ve been Friday by Tuesday. This is the hardest semester of my program. Can’t wait to graduate in May and the only thing that will get me through this is looking forward to our wedding the week after graduation!

I don’t know what I have gotten myself into. I found out I have a lot more readings than I originally thought, thankfully Classical Greek isn’t as tough as I thought- so far. 16 credit hours are deceptive when I have an organization to practically run and my 3rd marching season. *dies*

Mine starts next week and I am definitely not prepared for my elementary students. I hope the heat hasn’t gotten to them.
