Two weeks left until my summer semester wraps, and so far, I’ve only gotten one grade back from my cataloging class. I suppose the other four are floating around the 813s somewhere, classified as “mysteries.”

I’m digging this inforgraph by Seth Allen, and its’ accompanying TED Talk! Check them out HERE:
“The bottom 3 levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy can be covered in pre-recorded lectures, while upper level activities (evaluation, synthesis, and evaluation) should be covered through in-class activities.”

Today I finalized the the details of my first field observation slated to begin this Friday. My semester concluded last Thursday, and I’m happy to report that I aced both of my classes.
But I realized something even better- I aced life simultaneously!
I have been so busy juggling ALL THE THINGS:
- One 8 year old, participating in 2 extracurricular activities.
- 2 jobs
- 2 classes
- Time with my family
- And the wonderful ladies who keep me sane throughout it all.
That I never stopped to realize how amazing I am at juggling, and how proud I should be of the things I’ve managed to accomplish and cultivate since January. I can be a bit of an overachiever sometimes, and that usually results in me being way harder on myself than I deserve. Fortunately, I’m surrounded by people who are more than happy to tell me how awesome I am. And who doesn’t need to hear that every now and again?!
My son has no complaints. My bosses have no complaints. I’m currently holding a 4.0 GPA. I feel like Wonder Woman right now!
I guess what I’m getting at is that I’m proud of myself, and I couldn’t be happier with my place in life (even though it may not always seem that way).
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a date with The Dharma Bums and some Netflix binging! 😀
