Welcome to My Life…


Ok so Im freaking out. September 29, 2006

Filed under: Happenings — daizey @ 8:39 pm

I’m taking my ATS-w tomorrow. I just took the practice (well not just took, ive been taking it over the past few days whenever I got a chance) and got 18 out of 80 wrong. Now granted, i wasn’t giving my best effort to concentrate, but still, I dunno how good that is. The test overall isn’t hard, and I really can’t study for it, but Im still nervous.

The test is the assessment of teaching skills. I need to pass it to get my NYS certification. I paid $118 so I really don’t want to fail it. The re-take’s another $88. Yuck.

Im glad I waited until I started student teaching to take it though. Ive learned so much in these few short weeks than I have in the classroom. Its amazing to see it in front of me. And it’s great to know that I have the kid’s respect!ย  But anyway, having this experience will really help me relate what I’ve seen in the classroom to the test.

UGH. Im stil nervous. I thought my book had more pratice tests, but they only had one. I can’t seem to find any online either. Bummer.

Maybe Ill jsut go to sleep.


New Roommates September 28, 2006

Filed under: Happenings — daizey @ 4:08 pm

So I have a new roommate. Actually, I have two! One here, and one in Ohio. My roomamte here at school is wonderful! Her names Antonette. As so far as much as I’ve seen she does have a sister, but she doesn’t sleep with her! PHEW! She even goes to sleep early like me ๐Ÿ™‚ Shes so nice and we can even talk to each other which is always good!

I have a roomamte in Ohio too! Although since Im not IN Ohio right now, it’s more of Eric having a roommate. His name is Pete! Pete is awesome. Hes a friend of Eric’s that I met 2 years ago. And then he became my friend too. Pete moved back to Florida but he missed us so much he decided he just had to come live with us (or maybe it had something to do with me telling him he had to hehe).

Anyway, I couldn’t be happier about our two roommates. Well, unless Amey was coming to live with us too ๐Ÿ™‚

So much stress! September 24, 2006

Filed under: Happenings — daizey @ 11:15 am

Ok, so I haven’t blogged for awhile. I simply haven’t had time! Im either in school, in work, or in bed. Or maybe enjoying my 15 minutes of free time! Yuck!

So, anyway. As you may have guessed, I have started student teaching. And I love it so much. Im in second grade and its a challenging class! But I love every second of it. Im sad thats it already halfway over ๐Ÿ™

However! Halfway over means that I’m 1/4 of the way done with this semester and Ill be going to Ohio soon! I really cannot wait!ย  I miss Eric so much!

Another one of our friends got pretty badly injured skydiving a few weeks ago. It sucks. And scares me a lot. Makes me realize I have a lot to think about.

Well I think thats all for now. Im gonna relax some before i go to work today. More later!
