I did it! Four cups of tea and two Dentyne Pures later, I pass my Finals!!!!
The weirdest part was that after the tests my sugar cravings reached an all-time high?? What is that about??
Then today, as I was going through my Academic Plan, I realized I have one more term (May-October) until I can start my Demonstration Teaching!!!!
I'm almost done! I can't believe it, the end is finally within my grasp!
7 UCC1 US Constitution Part I 1
7 UCT1 US Constitution Part II
7 EOO1 Economics Part I
7 EOT1 Economics Part II
7 WRC1 World History to 1400
8 WTC1 World History 1400 to Present
8 WHT1 World History Part II
All that has to be taken care of by October (it's okay to shudder for me)
And to think, back in 2008, I was soooo nervous about going back to school. I wasn't sure if my brain had melted. Or if I wouldn't be able to find time to still engage my boys. And now with work, school, and their activities, we're still managing to hold it together.
I've been reading a lot lately about other moms. Moms cooler and more successful than me. Who still experience the same anxieties that I experience when thinking about my babies and my goals.
Sometimes it difficult to know how and when to balance everything. Honestly, I kinda think "balance" may be a huge big fat fallacy that makes moms feel bad.
Because some days I'm 100% with the boys and some days I'm more like 40%. And there are some weeks that I can't bear to check into to class, let alone research another paper when dinner has to be made, one kid had a rough day, and the basement is leaking.
But we just keep charging through it, hoping that in the end the pluses were more than the minuses, the positives more than the negatives.
All the while, I'm getting closer to my dreams...
