So Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week I had orientation at Western Illinois University. I am enrolled in the English Grad program there and was offered and graduate assistant spot. Our job is to tutor students in the writing center. So the three days this week were orientation for the writing center.
I am super excited about getting my masters! And this job sounds like it will be fun and interesting, plus I've already met several people who I like, some who work with me and/or have classes with me.
Monday will be my first class and this semester I have a night class Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. So, since WIU is about an hour drive for me, I'll be away from home from 11am to 9pm three days a week. It will be a challenge, but I love being busy and I look at it as a well deserved break from my kids.
I will try to keep up on blogging so no one goes through withdrawal!
It is also nice being in a grad program where I don't have to listen to trampy freshmen girls talk about how drunk they got the night before. I experience way too much of that the first time I went to WIU. I've burned all my clothes from back then because I was sure they were covered in herpes, lol.
Anyway, just wanted to catch you guys up on what's going on with me and I'll keep you posted on how school is going!
And I hope all you moms with school age children did not cry too much seeing your little ones off this week. I still have a couple years before my oldest is ready for kindergarten, but I'm sure she'll love school like I did!
