a very brief update

November 12th, 2008 · 2 Comments

  • Class is mostly over, though I am still working on the paper.  Still compiling sources, in fact.  Damned last-minute inspiration happens to me far too often.  It’s gonna be a good paper, though.
  • Tuesday’s presentation went well.  One of my evaluators (chair of my dept., in fact) said she likes my confidence and my realistic attitude about schools.  Hurray.
  • Praxis test seems less worrisome than it did on Sunday, possibly for no good reason.  I need to review the standards, but otherwise I’m good to go.  And it will be SO VERY OVER when I’m done.  OTOH, if I were to *not* pass it would be kind of a disaster.  OTOOH, when have I ever not done well on a standardized test?  I’m overthinking this one, most likely.
  • Intent to Graduate form = mailed on Monday. :)
  • One book finished, one book nibbled at (i.e. I can at least discuss the style and tone), and one book that I read some years ago and might not revisit.
  • It’s possible that my competitive sweater-finishing may be overshadowed by kids who need new mittens.  The problem with learning how to make things is that it’s really, really hard to buy things after that (even if I kind of want to and can objectively acknowledge the advantage of Relatively Crummy Mittens over No Mittens or Mittens That Don’t Allow You To Make a Snowball Because They’re Felted and Half an Inch Thick but Dammit They’re WARM).
  • I think I will be volunteering next week at the Minnesota Library Association Conference.  Should be fun, and all my papers will have been turned in by then. :)
  • Delicious dinner: quesadillas with caramelized onions, sauteed spinach, refried beans, and cheddar cheese.  Surprisingly delicious side item: chopped cucumber and avocado, dressed with a bit of lemon juice & balsamic vinegar.

That is all.  Carry on.

    I think you may be raising the bar on the oft-used cliche, “You rock!” Keep up the good work!

    Whew! All that and still a tasty dinner? I’m impressed.
