Well well, what is up? I am sitting here at 7:45 on Saturday morning because I am sick and cannot sleep. I woke up at 6 to call in to work and can't seem to fall asleep again. GRR I wish I wasn't sick, it's not that bad but I just don't like it. Basically my head feels really heavy and my throat is sore and my eyes are watery and I can't stop blowing my nose!!! haha anyways...
I didn't go to school yesterday because my sponsor teacher and I agreed it was a good idea to see my doctor to make sure that I didn't have strep. I was hoping to get through all of student teaching without having to be sick but oh well!
Last night I met Lauren at Ballston Spa High and we went to dinner at this Cafe in Ballston Spa. We had a great time and I think we got a little bit drunk but that's ok! We just laughed a lot and told fun stories about student teaching. We then went back to the school to see their show "Tom Sawyer" and it was pretty good! I was really impressed with the show overall, these kids worked hard!! It was really great to see everyone but it reminded me how much I miss being there. The orchestra was excellent, very small group let by my former sponsor teacher Val! She is so awesome and I was so lucky to student teach with her!
Tonight I reserved a ticket to see the gala at Cohoes Music Hall but I am not sure if I will go or not. I really don't feel well right now and I am tired so we will see how the day goes. It also costs $35 which is not cheap.
So I still haven't heard from Eastman and it's making me very nervous! I just want to know!!!! I did get a call from Draper Middle School in the Mohonasen school district to come in for an interview next Tuesday. That is exciting! I really have to get my portfolio in some kind of working shape before I go.
Only two weeks from today until I see Audra at Proctors and I AM SO EXCITED!! She was amazing the other night in the concert version of "Passion" on PBS. Michael Cerveris and Patti Lupone were excellent as well. It was more like a fully staged production than a concert version!!!
So tomorrow I am working from 9:30-3:30 and then I need to work on my portfolio, clean my room and write up some lesson plans for Monday!! I am currently teaching First and Third grade classes and really enjoying it!
I hope I feel better soon.....farewell!
