She is blown away by learning!
Maybe I want too much.
Maybe I’m greedy.
Maybe nothing is ever good enough for me.
Whether or not any of those things apply, I have a problem with the way Universal Class is being run. I’m currently in three classes:

It’s an old far side joke, I know, it’s cheesy and silly and right now feels accurate.
This morning, just to keep the kids entertained I gave them color-in worksheets from Super Mom Moments and they really had fun coloring them in. They had to color the verbs, nouns, and adjectives different colors. Is . . . → Read More: How Do I Determine Reading Placement for My Daughter? (also, kid anxiety is sad)
After various incidents in the school I am thinking that my lovely 2nd grader is not getting the attention, help, or support she needs in school.
She is not special needs (except being in the gifted math program at school – if that even qualifies) and she does not have a disability. She does . . . → Read More: Do I want to Homeschool in Illinois? Where do I Start?
This week the Spring school semester began.
I’m taking six online classes.
At first I thought, “This is going to be so easy! My school calendar is synced to my iPhone, I have the iStudiez Pro app, and my school is signed up for access to the Blackboard Mobile app. Wherever I am, I can . . . → Read More: Navigating Multiple Online Classes

To his credit, he totally rolled . . . → Read More: Luckie Louie in Media Class
Since I was a kid, there is only one thing I swore I would never be. “A writer?” I would say with the snarling how-dare-you look and tone only an inexperienced kid could muster. “Sure, I’d LOVE to be in a profession that will turn me into a depressed, insane drunk. Who wouldn’t?!”

I read the material, but I’m not applying myself as much as I should.
No one to blame but myself, really. I could be spending time in the library, but my social life is important to me and sometimes I choose that instead. Why? Because I could get hit by a bus tomorrow. Of . . . → Read More: Going for Number One (or, Wow I have Priority Issues)
My friend Ro told me something last night that made me really take a step back and think about what I’m doing right now. “What you are experiencing,” She said, “is not the reputation of the college, but the culture of the college.”
Let me go back.
You may remember my teacher who said, . . . → Read More: The Culture of a College (or university or whatever)
This is a parody post of sorts. I keep hearing that it’s important to meet your teachers, connect with them, get to know them.
Who knows, maybe you’re supposed to try and play a pick-up game of hackie-sack with them. All I know is, if I don’t make then love me enough to write . . . → Read More: Meeting Teachers – Making Friends
If you’ve seen me on Facebook or Twitter, you’ve probably heard me talk about the LSAT.
Why I’m even considering law school is a whole other issue.
The test is Saturday. The day after tomorrow. So – as is my way – I’m an anxiety attack just waiting to happen.
My poor husband.
