Hello world! April 6, 2011

As with everything, I have collapsed to peer pressure and created a blog.  I thought this would be a better way to keep in touch with some of my family since I am so busy these days.  So for my first post, I thought I would give a little update on what I have been doing these days!

Work is taking up most of my life.  I get up at 5:30 AM and return home about 5 PM everyday.  There aren’t really any interesting stories from work.  I had taken on another tutoring position for one I my students that has a health issue and cannot be at school.  That did not last to long.  With her not showing up or being late and with me starting grad school I had taken on too much.  I told my school that I could not do it anymore.  Yesterday at school I was “harassed”.  A student was upset and latched himself onto me.  He was hanging on to me by my necklace.  It took another teacher to pull him off of me.  I came out of the incident with a badly scratched neck and a broken necklace.  The student was suspended for 10 days and needless to say, the parent is not happy with the SCHOOL!  He is threatening to get a lawyer, but I did take pictures of my neck and necklace for documentation. Sadly, this is not the first violent encounter with a student at work.  Other than that it is the same old, same old! 

I have started graduate school in the middle of March.  I transferred from University of Akron to Grand Canyon University.  I am taking an online program.  I transferred to Grand Canyon due to the limited time that I could actually attend classes there with this job.  I would only be able to take 2 classes a year…that would take FOREVER! At Grand Canyon, classes change every 2 months.  I will be able to get done by next August.  I am enrolled in my first class and I was very intimidated at first.  Out of 3 students, I was the only one that had less than 5 years of experience.  However, my classmates and professor have been very positive and have given me great compliments so far.  It is going great other than the little time I have outside of work and school work.

Now onto my personal life (this will be the shortest section of all!).  Chris and I went to our first film festival.  He agreed to go with little reluctance even though the film I wanted to watch was at 9:45 AM!!  The film was called Facing Forward.  It was about a boy that went to E Prep School which is the middle school that is connected to where I work at.  I was a great film and the showing that I went to was actually an added film because the other two showings were sold out!  And, I do have to add even though he would not be happy, CHRIS CRIED AND I DIDN’T!! That tells you how good it was.  Also, Chris got a job at a housing company, it is called KHovania.  It sounds like a great place and really promising for him.  He is super excited and gets to fly to New Jersey on Friday for a week training.  Other than that my social life is limited. My roommate, Ashley, and I do have a lot of fun together and try to do things on the weekends!
