No more pencils, no more books
No more teacher's dirty looks...
SCHOOL'S OUT FOR THE SUMMER!!
Yippee! Most kids at my school have another week, but due to an instructor scheduling conflict we met extra-long last night to take our final, do our presentations, and eat yummy treats. Luckily, I left "room" for the possiblity of treats. Mmmm, yum, sweet chocolate-cherry treats from the culinary department made under the direction of a real Certified Executive Pastry Chef (a very rare breed, I'm told).
I had only one class this semester -- after signing up for three right off the bat last semester (my first semester) and having to drop one -- mostly writing, it was good and challenging and very worthwhile, but I never felt over-extended. Thank goodness. I was most impressed and appreciative of the instuctor's constructive criticism and feedback.
I have learned so much about myself in the past year -- my learning style, my reaction to different teaching styles, reconciling the two when they don't jive -- that, alone, was worth tuition.
I'm taking the summer off -- doing and learning about some other things, thinking about and working out my direction and focus for the future.
But right now, I must keep my focus and carry on with the tossing, turning, cleaning, bagging, boxing around here... I'm like a steamroller, baby!
