New Year = New Schedule
This has been a few weeks in the making, but I finally got confirmation from school that I'm registered for classes full-time beginning the second week of January. Once I took a look at what I have left for my classes I realized if I go full-time and if (and thats a strong if) I can get all the classes I need, when I need them, I could be student teaching by next fall! After reviewing the pluses and minuses of working vs. full time school, it makes the most sense to go full-time and get this schooling done as quickly as possible so I can start making some real money again. I'm nearing the 2 year mark of losing my job and I can't tell you how excited I am to be working a "real job" again. While I'm thankful for the opportunity to have babysat Brandon all this time and for the extra income it's allowed, I need a challenge and need to interact with people again! With my new schedule, I'll have 2 full days off which will allow me to do my observation hours (averaging around 60-75 hours which will need to be completed in 10 weeks!) Plus I am really excited to only have one night class next quarter which will allow for more studying during the day but more nights home with Jason, family and friends. I know the lonely factor may just get worse while I'm in school full time and I will be traveling as far as Wheeling for my classes, but at least now there is light at the end of the tunnel and it's crazy how soon it will be!
