Half Done First Semester

4 weeks in and I am exhausted! Between classes, assignments, readings, workshops (which can occur on weekends), and placement...I am almost always tired. The dark circles under my eyes that would only appear during exam season have now become permanent fixtures on my face. No amount of make-up can fix these circles.
Besides that, I am having a lot of fun. I mean, as much fun as one can. I love carpooling with the ladies that I carpool with. I am doing a group project for my physical education class on ZUMBA! I made friends with someone I normally wouldn't say two words to for fear of sounding like an idiot. I am going to say the semester is going well.
I am getting ready to hand in my first two real assignments and I'm feeling good about them. Neither were done hastily the night before or the morning of. I love planning for tutoring twice a week, the books and activities I get to make get me really excited.
In tutoring I am focusing on sight words. I made sight word dictionaries and created a game of tic-tac-toe where I put sight words in each of the boxes and as I read a story, the student has to cross off each sight word that I read. The students get really into it.
I hate that these blog posts are always rushed and unedited but I have assignments that need to be edited, Phys. Ed. journals that needs to be started, and sleep that needs to occur tonight.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! DFTBA, Tara
