I’m totes dominating my major, I have stellar grades, and now I’m going through the eligibility process for student teaching and it’s all paying off! Whoo-hoo!
I’m working a day over Spring Break ($60 holla!)
I’m applying for this summer camp position that I reallyreally want and I think I have a good chance of getting it!
I’m 21 :]
I’m sort of kicking my residents’ collective asses because I finally have the energy to deal with their shit in a mature way - I’m in that “kill them with kindness” mode and it’s one of those weeks where they’re not getting away with ANYTHING. Example:
dude in the elevator lobby: We have a floor meeting tonight, Fuck that shit, I’m not going.
me (creepily listening to conversations because my door is open): OMGGGG yes you are! I just heard you! You better be there! <—said in a cheery, sing-song-y tone as I leaped out from inside my room :]
A month into my first year of teaching seventh graders in Oakland, Calif., we were in the school library, using the big tables there to spread out as we outlined Africa on poster paper and added geographical features. My students chatted as they worked.
“Are you married, Ms. Sokolower?” one of them asked me. My stomach instantly tied in a knot. I was a brand-new teacher in what felt like an incredibly challenging teaching situation. But I knew I didn’t want to teach from the closet. I started teaching at the middle-school level partly because it is such a difficult time for kids struggling with their sexuality, and there are so few role models. I just didn’t know I would have to deal with this so soon.
“Well,” I explained in what I hoped was a calm voice, “I have been with the same partner for a very long time, but we can’t get married because we’re lesbians. My partner’s name is Karen, and we have a daughter. She’s 9.”
it’s thursday night - my mean girl troupe is clearly getting ready to go out - but they are getting ready to go out IN THE DAMN HALLWAY - meaning, i can totes hear their entire convo from DOWN THE HALL, in a DIFFERENT WING.
i thought it would let it go, but writing about it has helped me decide to go do something about it.
i have been studying Macbeth like a crazy woman (haha shout out to lady mac-b) - but according my sparknotes quiz i got a 96% :]
lets just hope that i can score that high on my 50 quote test tomorrow - you know, nothing difficult about recalling who spoke 50 different quotations…*gulp* let’s hope knowing the plot backwards & forwards helps me out!
