I am currently in my Bachelor's Degree program in Elementary Education. I just graduated with my Associates Degree, which was super exciting, since I am the first person on either side of my family to graduate from college with a degree!
Well, my Bachelor's Degree program is in full swing, which means I am super busy. Not only do I have school work, but I also have to go take the Praxis I exam, get a TB skin test (which I had done today, but do not get my results 'til Monday), get fingerprinted, and start classroom observations. Whew!
It is extremely hard work, but I know it will all pay off in the long run when I am teaching my own class of students. I have always loved children, and I enjoy helping them achieve their goals and dreams. It will be a great pleasure of mine when I can teach and watch students learn, grow, develop, and excel!
So, not only am I going to school, but I am actively looking for work, exercising, and trying to plan a vacation, which is needed and well-deserved. I am still trying to find a job while in school because my education is not paying for itself, yet!
On the note about exercising, I am trying to get back in my groove, so that I can start losing weight again. I really want to get down to my goal weight by Thanksgiving or Christmas. I know it is much harder to lose weight in the winter because many times our lives become sedentary, so I want to lose weight before full winter kicks in.
And, I need a vacation. At least a mini-vacay. After going to school for so long and accomplishing what I have so far, I believe a vacation is well-deserved and hopefully, in the near future. I would like to go to the beach for a weekend. But, with everything else that I am doing, it is hard to look up hotels and plan a trip.
