Pomp and Circumstance

I'm graduating.

It's weird. I'm excited, but at the same time, there's nothing I would like to do more than stay in college. I know, I'm a lunatic, but I love college. (Now, I might be saying this just because I'm not worrying about finals right now.) But I love being on campus and going to classes and seeing my friends every day. It's fantastic.

Sometimes I wonder if I should have taken more "fun" classes, and not focused so much on the classes I needed, but then I realized, just because I'm done with classes doesn't mean I have to be done with learning new things. I can still take classes, even if they aren't college classes.

So my new goal is to take at least one class each year, starting this year with cake decorating. I'm excited.

I'm picking up my cap and gown tomorrow. Wowza.

I Wish That This Was The Day After Today

So I have to tell you about today.

Every night I set my alarm clock, and I usually can't go to sleep until I double check that I've set my clock to the right time. I also have an internal alarm clock, and I wake up before my alarm even goes off, so I usually don't have a problem with waking up late.

Except for today.

I woke myself up, as usual, and checked the clock, expecting it to be about 6:00, so I'd have time to sleep in a few more minutes. I look at the clock, and it says 7:21.

I have to be at school at 7:30.

It took me a few minutes to realize the situation I'm in, but then I jump out of bed and start throwing some clothes on. I put mascara, shoes, and deodorant on simultaneously, grab my bag and run out the door without making a lunch. Thank heavens it was pizza day at school today.

I got to school at 7:35. I know, I'm good, right? :)

Needless to say, I was completely scatterbrained all day, and I'm still not sure if my lessons even made sense. After school, I went to the store to get treats for my class tomorrow, then I went home and started thinking of an art project to do tomorrow. I finally come up with one, and I figure I need to do a model, but I don't have crayons, which is a vital part of the project. I also don't have an iron; another vital part. Also, I have to turn in a portfolio tomorrow, and realize I don't have a folder to put it in. So I go back to the store to get crayons and a folder, and give my home teachers a call to see if they have an iron.

I get home and start putting together my portfolio on the computer, go to print it, and realize I am out of printer paper. I have to turn my portfolio in tomorrow at 5:00, I get out of school at 4:00, so there's no way I can get paper and print it tomorrow.

So I'm back at the store. Again.

By this time, I am tired and annoyed. I print out my portfolio, my home teacher comes by with the iron (home teachers are the greatest), and I start working on the art project. It's not turning out the way I want it to, and I realize it's because in the past I have done it on tissue paper. And guess what? I don't have any tissue paper.

So I go to the store for the fourth time in one day.

I leave my apartment, and lock my door, just to realize that I left my keys inside, both for my car and the house. So I have to climb through my roommate's window in the pitch black. Now I go to the store, and I'm pretty sure I have a sliver in my bum.

I finally come home, get my pajamas on, turn on High School Musical 3, and work on the art project. It still isn't working out the way I want it to, but by this point, I'm beyond caring. Plus, Zac Efron has definitely released some of my stress.

So then I decide to blog about my day. So I type this huge long post, and as I'm going to read through it again, I accidentally delete it, and that's when it decides to autosave. So I had to write this entire post again.

Now it's 12:30, and I'm going to bed.

Oh, and did I mention tomorrow is my last day of student teaching? I thought this day would never come.
