I keep meaning to update but bad things keep happening — like my computer needing to be fixed. Anyway, things are moving along. I picked up the keys for my apartment on Monday, and I’m really excited about that. It’s a huge apartment, and the roommate who I’ve met seems really great, and I really like her cat too. Our cats usually have slits for eyes because they like to glare at me, but this cat’s eyes are perfectly round circles (causing her to seem in a constant state of shock when I was moving some things into the apartment the other day).
I also had the first meeting about my credential program, and I feel like I’m in really good hands. The first thing they told us was that they wanted everything to be administrativley clean so that we would have as easy a time as possible getting a job when we finished, which was pretty much the opposite message that all of the Cal States had been sending me. During Winter & Spring quarters, I’ll be student teaching 5 (!) days a week, so that will be good in the long run too.
The last few weeks have been full of baking and watching movies and trying to not melt and trying to run to as many necessary doctor/dentist/eye appointments as I can fit in before I move down to Irvine on August 22nd.
More blogs soon once things are more settled!
