Finally landed my big girl job! February 03, 2014 @ 11:39:51 pm
I graduated from college in May with my degree in Secondary Level Mathematics and I have been a substitute teacher for the first half of this school year. Three weeks ago I got offered a job at a high school working full time teaching Algebra 1, Statistics, and Trigonometry. I absolutely love the district and the people I work with. Keeping my fingers crossed that I can keep this job next year. They are not sure because they have massive budgeting issues within the district right now.
Dwindling Internet Usage December 02, 2013 @ 12:51:05 am
Having returned to TFS after another lengthy time away I had a look at some of the posts I had made when I was a prolific poster it made me think about my changing (or changed) usage of the Internet. In fact in the usage of a PC.
I bought my first PC when I was 11, I've used one most days since then. However in the last year or two my own usage has dwindled quite considerably.
I used to spend hours on my PC, I used to be uploading videos, downloading movies. I used to Admin at the world's largest Torrent site. I used to moderate forums. Once that ended I would usually be gaming online and I still would be doing the odd download.
But as I say in the last year or two I can do what I need to do on the PC in around 20 mins and I hardly feel the need to boot up anymore.
Worst week of my life to date February 25, 2013 @ 10:16:32 am
So I know I don't post much on here anymore but this seems more personal than Facebook lol.
Last week I was told I am being made redundant. On the same day my grandad and his partner were taken ill my grandad was nearly killed by the flu and his partner is in hospital she is getting better but she has sepsis so it's touch and go... Then Wednesday one of my old friends from my old place of work collapsed and died of a heart attack any to top it all off my fiance now has the flu and I am off work with stress.... Good week all round lol
I know that I haven't posted anything on here in ages and i only get on every now and then to talk to a few friends that I met on here. However, I am SO excited that I just have to share this with everyone! I student teach next semester and after that I will finish my degree (FINALLY!) and today I got my placement for student teaching which means I will now get to start planning. YAYY! I start January 14th and will be teaching 11th and 12th grade mathematics.
