That was the year I got left at the altar, it was the year I got knocked out by a crazed bartender, the year I got fired, the year I got beat up by a goat, a girl goat at that, and damn it if it wasn’t the best year of my life. Because if any one of those things hadn’t happened, I never would’ve ended up in what turned out to be the best job I ever had. But more importantly, I wouldn’t have met your mother. Because as you know, she was in that class. Of course, that story is just beginning. -Ted, How I Met Your Mother
This week at work has been the slowest it’s been in months. I wish I could say it was nice, but it makes the day just drag by. Match has been feeling it too since he’s just doing his unpaid internship and waiting for his new job to give him a start date. They’re taking forever and it’s driving us both nuts. Match really wants us to move North, maybe to Oregon or even Washington, but there just aren’t any jobs there. I love our little duplex and I’m happy in the town we’re in, but I am definitely ready for a change of career. Continue reading Waiting For My Calling→
Harry Senate: The assignment was the read the book. Did anybody read the book?
Harry Senate: Jamal, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Jamal: Not a teacher.
Harry Senate: You know, as a teacher, it would be inappropriate for me to tell you that you’re a total screw-up. So what I want you to do is go home and ask your father, as a favor to me, to tell you that you’re a total screw-up. I bet you can’t wait to get out into the real world because you’re all going to be rich. Companies are going to pay you a ton of money to sit there like lumps and do nothing all day. I want all my books back. Just leave them right here on my desk on your way out because, well, unlike a mind, a book is a terrible thing to waste. –Boston Public
Lately Match’s schedule has been more and more crazy. He’s got work Monday through Friday, then his internship, and also night class two days a week. Now he’s talking about volunteering for search and rescue, to bump up his resume and gain more experience.
I’ve always thought of myself as an overachiever, but next to Match I look downright lazy! I started looking into masters program to see about getting my masters degree.
When I was a little girl, I used to want to be a teacher. Getting an online degree would definitely be the right approach for me. Key components of this program include focus on the integration of technology in education, something I have a lot of experience with.
The courses are accredited, and would prepare me for continuing as a masters teacher. Earning my Curriculum and Instruction graduate degree online would definitely be the best option for me with my busy, hectic schedule.
Still, I’m pretty sure I’ll stay where I’m at, in the technology field, at least for now. I think it’s great that there are options for online learning though, and I may explore that career later on in life.
