I have been drowning in school work for the past month. My ability to socialize, do creative fun things by choice, or even just relax and actually sleep by my own will has diminished. So, I may be a slight perfectionist and may have exaggerated the need to get things done. But, in my book, in terms of a college education it pays off.
I have had the experience of going to the middle school, junior high, and high school in the area to participate in my practicum. Mainly, I spend time at the middle school. I observe there and teach 3 class days. It has been quite a learning experience for me. My limits have been pushed and it has shown me the capabilities that I actually have and didn't realize before.
While I have been doing this class I have pushed my butt, and had to put a lot of trust into others. Despite this being challenging, I guess I have learned the lesson that my teachers had in mind when they assigned all these things.
I feel very happy here in Rexburg. My parents came to visit us last Sunday, which was awesome. I have a grip, at least for now, on how my life is going. I get to watch the world transform into a winter wonderland. And, heck, Hogwarts is my campus....they put Christmas decorations up!! Tonight we are going to my in-law's for a Christmas play this weekend and I am excited to spend time in a real home.
Hope the beginning of the holiday season as been treating you well, and that you enjoyed your stay! That's all for now folks.
