This is my last week in Texas of 2016. This weekend I'll be heading back to Minnesota for two weeks & will be back just before 2017 starts. I hope that y'all had a fabulous weekend & have an amazing week.
I did nothing this weekend & it was glorious! However, because of that this is going to be a short & sweet recap. Linking up with Biana.
On Friday I finished & submitted my final assignment for grad school. My first semester is finally over. Now I am just impatiently & nervously waiting for my grades. I need a 3.0 to be able to stay in the program & this semester has been a hot mess. I have one class where the entire grade is based on 1 assignment & the class was cancelled 4-5 times throughout the semester. My other class was an online class in which expectations were so unclear & grades were consistently messed up. I'm still waiting on a grade to be fixed that we've talked about multiple times...
I got rejected for a job that I had interviewed for, & thought for certain was mine considering they had already hired me for it as a long term sub position. After crying about it I found another permanent position to apply to, a long term sub position to apply for, and my friend said she was going to send someone at her school my name as well. I have some of the greatest & supportive friends and family ever. I had multiple people let me cry to them on the phone & then try to help me figure out my next move. A minute after I got the email rejecting me from the job I signed up for Helene's Instagram For Success. While I was watching the live video I told myself that if I got the job I wouldn't pay for the program but if I didn't I was going to sign up. Well, I didn't get it so sign up I did.
Saturday I did nothing for real. I woke up, slowly drank coffee & had breakfast, and then planted myself on the couch. I got some blogging done while watching a Catfish marathon followed by White Chicks. It has been so long since I've seen that movie. It makes me think of my students that I taught my first year though because they were obsessed with it. They loved when 1000 Miles would come around on my Pandora. I concluded the night by spending an hour & a half in the tub letting cold water out & adding hot water from time to time as I started Dallas on Netflix. After deciding I had been in the tub longer than necessary, Netflix & I moved to the bedroom.
Sunday morning started much of the same way. I woke up, slowly drank coffee & had breakfast, and then planted myself on the couch. I watched the Teen Mom & Teen Mom 2 reunions. I will always love Maci the most but holy crap the original teen moms are way hotter messes than the ones from Teen Mom 2. I had wanted to watch the Vikings & Jaguars game but it wasn't on TV so I settled for ESPN updates. It was the game of the field goals. Feeling like I needed to be productive on the job search I found 3 internships to apply to as well as checking the sub list every 30 minutes seeing if anything had been added to pick up. Fingers crossed that between the 3 internships, 2 long term sub positions, and 1 permanent position I applied to over the weekend something comes of at least one of them. After finishing the Teen Mom reunions I took a shower & then sat down with Helene's Instagram For Success course.
