Happies and Crappies

April 19, 2013
I thought I would join in on this Happies/Crappies fun, so I'm linking up with The Vintage Modern Wife.


Happies
1. I finished up the bulk of my coursework for my Master's of Education degree this week.
2.  At first I was extremely irritated to find out that my graduation will be delayed until August because of a study abroad opportunity I'm taking advantage of, but then I realized that it will also delay my loan repayments for a few more months, and that = happiness!
3. In less than a month I'll be in the very beautiful Cape Town, South Africa.
4.  I received a $1,000 grant for my study abroad trip and that should be arriving in my account within the next 10 days.
5. Since I work at a movie theatre, I get to see free movies, but I just never have time to do so.  Today I actually had time, and went and saw The Host.  It was a lot better than I thought it was going to be, AND I got the whole theatre to myself!!  I love it when that happens!
6.  I got my substitute teaching license in the mail last week so that I can hopefully earn some extra cash before the end of the school year.  Won't it be nice to get paid after doing oh my gosh...almost 1,000 hours of student teaching/field work!
7.  I'm working with someone who is going to design my blog.  I love her work, and can't wait til it is finished.  I feel like some people really do judge a blog by its cover, and mine doesn't look so swift right now.
8. My professor asked if I would write an article to be published in her new book.  I'm happy but also scared about this.
Crappies
1. I still have one more paper to do in order to finish up my degree...I told myself I was going to do it today, but I went and saw The Host instead and now I am doing this.  I just have no more motivation left!
2. While I am estatic that my program is ending so that I can move on with life and start my career, I'm a little sad about not seeing those in my cohort on a regular basis.  There are 13 of us in the cohort, and we have had almost every single class together for the past 2 years.  Two of the guys in the cohort have become my really good friends, and one of them will soon be moving to Savannah.  :(
I'm going to miss him!
3. I'm worried that my delayed graduation will affect my chances of getting a job.  Also, I'm not going to apply until after I get back from South Africa.  The whole interview/moving thing stresses me out--I love traveling, but in day to day life I am a creature of habit that loves a routine.
  
My Crappies aren't really that crappy...more just some worries.  Wow, writing this was almost therapeutic!
