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!
