It's official!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am now a 5th grade teacher at WIlkinson County Elementary School!!!!!!!!!!!! Now the real stress begins with all of the planning I have to do, but it's a good stress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I decided to go back and read some old blogs tonight. I'm glad I did. Last year... about this same time I posted a blog that was titled Goodbye LSU Baseball :(... In that blog, I made the statement that LSU would not only go back to the CWS, but they would win it all. WEll.... LSU has in fact gone back to the CWS and the Fightin' Tigers are on their way to winning it all!!! I have fallen in love with the sport and the team more this year, than I was last year. LSU has a few seniors this year but they also have a lot of freshman :) hopefully that means we will have a good team for the upcoming years, as well! LSU won their regional and super- regional this year to land them a seat in Omaha- Tiger Town :) In the super- regional, they beat Rice for the first time ever... they have beaten Rice at the CWS and at other events but have NEVER beat them in regional or super- regional play. It was excited to see! LSU's first CWS game was against Virginia and after pitching issues, we claimed the victory. The second and third games were against Arkansas --- all I can say is Geaux-rilla ball is back!! We definitely fried some bacon..... TWICE!
On Monday, LSU will enter into the championship series against the Texas Longhorns. I would like to see LSU win the first game with no problems... then I would like to see LSU pitch a no-hitter on Tuesday's game! I think that would be pretty awesome!
In other news, it's been awhile since I have updated. I applied for a job in Natchez, but was turned down. After all of the chaos I went through just to get an interview, I have decided that I probably do not want to work there anyway. On Monday, I will visit Woodville and see what is going on there. This job business is a lot more stressful than I ever imagined. Since the last post, I have graduated, moved home, received my diploma, applied for and received my license to teach and began working at Parkway as the Children's Events Coordinator. We have a lot of stuff planned for the summer that I am super excited about!! Now I just have to get people to sign up to attend and work - that will be my challenge!!
Well that's about all that is going on in my life.
So at this time next week.... I will have completed student teaching :) I will have filled out all necessary paperwork to get my license :) I will have graduated from Mississippi State :) I will have all of my belongings packed and ready to move :) and I will either be at home - or in the process of moving home :) It seems like it had only been a few months since I moved into this apartment... college has flown by!! I'm excited about teaching next year in my OWN classroom. Now I just have to finalize a job somewhere ;)
2 weeks from this day, I will be a college graduate :) It just does not seem like it has been 4 years since I graduated high school! Only 8 more days left at EOCES :) - Even though I get my final grade on Monday!
I decided I needed a stress relief so I cooked dinner. For some reason I have been craving Chicken Cordon Bleu. I found all of the things I needed so I cooked it! I think I have wanted to cook it for so long because you get to beat the chicken until it's thin. It was soooo yummy! I hammered out the chicken until it was pretty thin. Then I seasoned it and laid some shaved ham and some swiss cheese in the middle. After that, you roll it up and tooth pick. Usually I just bake it like that but I decided I wanted a crust. The only type of crackers I had were melba toast, so I used that! It was pretty good! Along with the chicken cordon bleu, I made Claire's Mac N Cheese. It's extremely good! Every one should try it!! For desert is fruit pizza :)
I never seem to have time to update this. Student teaching is winding down :) I only have 14 more days in the classroom, 1 seminar, 1 EID, and 1 wrap- up day!! Then it's graduation! I am pretty excited! I can remember being a freshman thinking this would NEVER come and here it is!! Graduation is going to be May 2nd at 2 p.m.
I made time to update this today because my apartment is in DESPERATE need of cleaning and I am suppose to be packing to move... so of course the first thing I did was see what I could do online to procrastinate!
Well that's all for now. I do not have anything to talk about because graduation is the only thing on the brain!
