Let the Bodies Hit the Floor

It must be that time of year again, where in the middle of the eight weeks, things start to get stressful, and coffee becomes a person's new best friend. I always feel like I am missing something when I am doing an assignment, like a huge chunk of the assignment has gone uncompleted. My sleep schedule is completely off, staying up til 4 in the morning drinking an Arizona green tea and staring at my computer. I still have to pay my graduation fee, and I am never on campus when the office is open. =/ I think its time to re-prioritize.
The first thing I need to do is pay that fee! Good gracious, I put things off, and then at the last minute I am stressed out to the max because I haven’t done that. If I go and pay it, then I would not be so worried about it. Looks like Monday, I am making a special trip to Regent =). Second is that I need to figure out when I do my homework. I never write things done (unlike Kristen, who writes everything down… love you Kristen!!) and then I forget that something is due until the last minute, then I am scrambling to try and finish. I should have everything spaced out so that I am not rushed to finish and I have plenty of time to complete everything. Oh the wonders of homework. Last, I need to get back into sleeping at normal hours. Oh geez, the late nights that I stay up are crazy. It started out staying up until 1 in the morning. Now its 3:30-4 in the morning and I am still awake, staring at Blackboard, trying to figure out the best way to phrase something! I am not sure when the sleep pattern started, but I feel that when my student teaching comes around, I will be in deep trouble, because I wont want to get up in the morning. Time to fix that!
Life in general has been hectic. The storm last week really made a mess in the front yard, and Wounded Knee (the Wonder Horse) tore up the yard. We tried to save it, but there are just some things you can't save at all. =( Other than that the storm has not been mean to me. I managed to stay home, taking one class online. My sister comes home from college on Sunday (YAY!) and I think my brother will be home on Wednesday (YAY) so that the entire family will be together again. (That has bee a while)
I am back to observing in Mrs. Greene's classroom again. She is a wonderful teacher, and I feel like I learn so much from her. Her class is so different from the last time that I was here. They seem to have picked up on their reading skills so much better, and they are better behaved then before. There are still one or two troublemakers, but Mrs. Greene seems to keep them in order. It is very exciting to see this huge change in such a short period of time. =)
That is all that I can think of for right now. I am sure that I will have more for everyone to read later =) Stay dry in this wet weather!
