Snow Days

They are great when you are a kid. They kinda stink right now. In the last 2 weeks, we have missed 5 days of school and had 4 delays. That leaves one day out of 10 that we got anything done. I'm still not sure exactly what to do planning wise. I feel like at this point I just need to scrap everything that I had planned to do this week (as it was mostly a continuation of last week) and just move on next week. I really can't wait to find a job and move to somewhere warm where what you plan actually happens because you are at school on the days scheduled. It's just all a little frustrating. I was suppossed to get my midterm last Monday and ended up doing after school on Friday, and was suppossed to be observed today, but not being in school, we'll see when that happens. It also means that I have to make these days up. That is an entire week that I will still be in my placements after I was suppossed to be. I'm getting darn close to graduation at this point. I can't imagine having to go back to school after graduation because of snow days. I hope this all ends soon, or at least we go to delays instead of cancelling school for 3 days in a row.

In terms of graduation, I ordered my cap, gown, and announcements this week. It's getting real now. I have found a couple of jobs that I think I would enjoy, but I don't know if I should apply for them now or not. I'm not even halfway through my student teaching and chances are I would have to fly west to do interviews and I can't miss any more school. They all want a copy of my licence, which I of course don't have yet. It's just all a little daunting and scary. I'm really excited to be out there and on my own, but it's still scaring me a little. At least these snow days have given me a chance to look at some districts and jobs that I may like.

OK, I need to look at what we can get done tomorrow with a delay and finally doing our V-day party in the afternoon. It's just plain craziness.
