So, I didn’t really want to wake up this morning, but now that I’m awake, here I am. This post is just a bunch of random thoughts that were running through my head while I was at work today. So let’s use the ordered list tag to make my entry look pretty…
- Teach for America – Throughout the last few weeks, I’ve been trying to figure out more of what I want to do when I graduate. I have definitely decided (a couple months ago) that I want to go to graduate school for something. The current options are 1) Informatics of some kind, 2) Outdoor Recreation (probably administration or something of the like) 3) Education or Education Administration. Right now, I’m leaning more toward some kind of education. Since my GPA isn’t looking as good as it should be, I’ll have to find an alternate means to get into graduate school. Kirstee introduced me to the Teach for America program about a month ago. I’ve been doing a lot of research about the program the last few days trying to find out what it would entail and the more I look at it, the more I want to do it. Check out the site if you want more details. Basically, I would like to go to either Baltimore, DC or Houston to teach soon after college. This all depends on if I get accepted and if I don’t find another job first.
What better way to spend two years of your life than to help out some less fortunate children?
- Rockstar Parking? – I saw the coolest sticker today. Ok, maybe not the coolest, but it was definitely worth noting. It was on the back of one of those power chairs. The sticker was blue, had the handicap parking logo on it and said “Rockstar Parking”. It made me chuckle 😛
- Cares? Don’t Cares? – And the Don’t Cares have it. At least in my current academic situation they do. I just do not care about a couple of my classes. I know this is dangerous especially sicne I want to get into some graduate program somewhere in the country, but I can’t help it. I’ve tried to care, I just can’t. I have an assignment due today that I have half-assed my way through and an exam this evening that I haven’t started studying for yet. I definitely have senioritis, and I have one more year of studying. I think I posted about this in my LJ a while ago, but not here, so this is to enlighten those of you who don’t read the LJ. If this is a duplicate topic, I’m sorry.
- The Ransburg Countdown – Oh how close it is, yet so far away. I look at my calendar and it says “Move to Ransburg” three and a half weeks away, but then I look at my school and work schedule and it says “You are never going to get out of this semester alive”. I just want to get this semester done with so I can go be refreshed and hopefully care more next semester.
I think that’s all I should ramble about in this post, it’s already pretty long. I’m starting to turn into pinKUS.
