Excuse me please [16 Aug 2006|10:17pm]
[ mood | thankful ]

Ok, first thing is first. I need to annouce to the world that I have a roommate. Her name is Jessica Sanford. I think she is pretty rad. I am super excited to be living with her. We are going to have the coolest teacher apartment ever.

Second thing is ... uh second. I got a job! I'm going to be part of the 21st Century tutoring program at Robb Elementary :D It's 13 hours a week at quite good pay. I get to work with eight students helping them with homework. I also get to prepare my own Language Arts and Math lessons four days a week. After tutoring we spend an hour doing an activity. I have no idea what activity I am going to do, but I will think of something totally awesome that all the kids will want to do.

Again, I am really loving life right now.

PS My little brother got his driver's license today. My big brother got a raise today. It's been a good day for the Schmid kids :p

Not like there's any reason to make it friends only. Ok, well maybe there's one, but you don't get to know what it is. You're probably already my friend if you're reading this. If you aren't, you best comment so you don't miss out on my way exciting life.

Hey bitch, it's not REM [03 Oct 2005|10:06pm]
[ mood | busy ]

Today was a really stressful day. Not for any particular reason though. I think it's always like that though when I go back to classes after the weekend. I never feel like I did enough over the weekend.

But I must have done more than I thought I did because tonight I feel like I have a handle on the important stuff again.

I gotta get stuff together for my Language Arts lesson on Wednesday. Peace out.

The picture frames have changed [01 Oct 2005|07:04pm]
[ mood | annoyed ]

I emailed my professor earlier this week telling her that I was upset by the grade she gave me on a project that I felt I had put way more work into than was necessary. You know what she has to say, I was disappointed by your grade too. What the hell kind of professor says that? That totally makes me feel like crap and that she expected something great from me and that I must have given her crap.

Did I ever mention that I hate block? :(

Luau [25 Sep 2005|10:27am]
[ mood | cold ]

How much does it suck that I felt like crap and wanted to leave the luau?  I vote that it sucks a lot.  But I definitely felt fine as soon as I got home.  So that makes it even worse.  But it was probably better that I came home early because I'm up early enough to, hopefully, be super productive today.

I posted pics on my webshots from last night.  I believe someone, aka J Sanford, was demanding that I put them on there.

I hope that you will never feel unwanted [23 Sep 2005|07:59pm]
[ mood | busy ]

I printed out calendars for the next four months so that I could write down everything I have to do. This is typical fashion for me a few weeks into the semester. It never makes me feel any more organized or more able to deal with things.

Anymore I'm really boring.

I guess the plan is to go to Uncle Al's tonight. And then the big party at Jess and Misty's goes down tomorrow night.

Until next week ...

What's my deal? [17 Sep 2005|11:24pm]
[ mood | distressed ]

I have work to do.
I know that it needs to get done.
I have no motivation to do my work.
I know that it needs to get done.

I'm bored all the time.
I'm rarely actually happy.
I'm feeling overwhelmed and underappreciated.
I'm sick and tired of this.

You're too old to remember [12 Sep 2005|09:36pm]
[ mood | overwhelmed ]

You know that feeling when you feel like you're on top of everything you're supposed to be doing? And do you also know that feeling when you go to class and realize that you have practically nothing done? Yeah, that's what today was.

I swear I did tons of work over the weekend. I know that I needed to have done more, but I didn't think I would be feeling so overwhelmed about the upcoming week. I don't have anything major due this week though. My big projects start next week. Of course, I have to work on them all the time if I ever want to get them done.

I have lesson plans due for Social Studies that I honestly think I have no idea what I'm supposed to do. Other than that class, I know what's expected of me, for the most part, and feel like I can get it done. I just want this to be over.

Like now.

Monster is taking a nap in my lap -- aww [07 Sep 2005|04:07pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

Week one of block = not so bad.
Week two of block = pure insanity.

We keep getting all these assignments that are supposed to be long term, but none of the professors want to explain them to us right now. How in the world are we supposed to do this work, when we don't know what the heck to do?

I got stuck with a crappy topic for my language arts microteaching, so that's annoying.

People are just annoying.

I'll be in girl with her face in a book the rest of the week and the weekend ...

I fell in a mud puddle today walking home from classes. Yeah, that pretty much ruled.

Going out tonight to celebrate Kate's 21st. Thank goodness! This week has been enough already.

Silent, but life saving [29 Aug 2005|10:46pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

I made it through day one of block. One 12 weeks to go, haha. We had an orientation meeting for three hours this morning that made me want to jump out a window. We tried to "get to know" each other. Considering the fact that we have 65 students in block, that takes quite a long time. It's good though because most of us already know each other.

I had computers, social studies, and language arts methods today. None of them really seem to be too bad. I'm with a group that I don't really know how to feel about for social studies, but everything else seems ok. I have science and math methods tomorrow, which makes for a really short day. If anyone wants to do anything with little old me tomorrow afternoon, you should let me know ;o)

the innocent can never last [28 Aug 2005|10:12pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

I feel like I haven't been dealing with the reality of block and moving forward in the education program. Block and student teaching always seemed far off. I'm going into block tomorrow and pretty much expecting things to be non-stop from here on out ... eeek!

About these past couple of nights ...

Everyone finally came back to Lock Haven! That's really fun and exciting except for the fact that classes start tomorrow :o(

Last night we had some people over to celebrate Dave's 21st. We had all intentions of making it to the bar at midnight, but that totally didn't happen. It's cool with me though because I'm sure the bar was crowded, and we actually saved money by not going.

I hope everyone who was here had a good time and made it back to their respective houses safely.

Happy Birthday David Martin!

Sore throats = the devil [22 Aug 2005|08:05pm]
[ mood | thirsty ]

Wow -- I can't believe I've gone the majority of my life without ever having been on a fun and exciting vacation. The only other "real" vacation I've ever been on was to Sea World in Ohio with my family when I was about 10. I don't remember much about that trip. But looking at pictures of it, I look like I was having a horrid time.

Don't get me wrongCollapse )
