As tiring as Tuesday was, having to work a full day then come back to school at night, the rest of the week felt like a marathon, too. When I wasn't shaping young peoples' minds, I was helping my fellow teachers plan for our Hispanic Luncheon, which will be held this week. On Thursday, I went to FIU (my university) right after work to discuss some final thesis edits with one of my committee members. We also scheduled my thesis defense -- October 19th, a Tuesday, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. (EEEEK!) Seriously, though, it's exciting to know I'll be graduating soon.
On Friday after school, I went with my co-worker/good friend for our biweekly salon appointment. I went crazy and decided to paint my nails blue. I'm still undecided about them. On Saturday I worked all day grading my students' assignments. I've got to admit, it's a lot easier keeping up with the grading this year now that I no longer teach AP English Language (the numbers were too low this year due to dual enrollment). While I miss teaching the course, I definitely don't miss lugging home all those essays every week!
Today I'm going to work on my final thesis edits and maybe go grocery shopping with the boyf. I'm also going to try and finish reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. My rereading of the series has been delayed by my work and thesis responsibilities, but I'm excited to dive back into it, especially since they're going to be releasing another film trailer this Wednesday for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Here are my blog posts from this past week in case you missed any:
