Okay, so those 40 hour work weeks combined with 9 credit hours of classes and a million hours spent outside of class working on projects? Finally caught up with me today.

I am unbelievably exhausted. Totally, utterly exhausted. I mean, when my supervisor at work offers to let me leave to go buy coffee, you know you're beat.

In other news, Jacob actually apologized for what he said last night. I never expected him to - he doesn't seem like the kind of guy to apologize for things. He blames his medication for the way he acted. Figured he'd do that. Still doesn't stop what he did from sucking.

Part of me honestly wants to sleep through the next six weeks, and just recharge for the coming semester. At least I found out my work schedule for the Levitt Center for the spring - pretty much the same schedule I have now, but with two nights of Robert the Awesome Co-Worker instead of just one! It will be very awesome. I also have my requisite shift with a Gamma Sig girl - I think it's my punishment for quitting the sorority. (Yes, I was in a sorority. It didn't end well.)

But yeah. Tonight is going to be spent watching Bones, wishing my fishtanks weren't on timers so I could zone out on watching the fish-ohs swim, and waiting for Bryan to come home.

It feels like today's gone on forever. It's the second day I've had that started with an emergency (yesterday Mom called me at 7:30 am freaking out because she thought Johanna took her meds, when she actually just put them back where they were, on the bench behind her bedroom door, in a basket, which took her maybe a half hour or an hour to find; today it was Bryan saying "oh hay your tent collapsed under the snow k bye"), and waking up only to dash out into the snow and yank some tent poles loose... yeah, that's not the best way to wake up. At least Tyler behaved himself today, even if he was a little bored because it was too cold to go outside and he didn't have free reign of the house due to the cleaning ladies being there. I've got Friday off, and then that should be it for the days off until the end of June, when the daily babysitting ends. I'm sorta looking forward to summer, it means more petsitting jobs and better weather. I would much rather deal with Tyler's dog some days, all Zoey does is lay around and look at me with those sad eyes. When I pet sit her, the first thing I'm going to do is give the poor doggy a bath - she needs one.

My night, now that I'm home and done with class and work for the day, is being spent listening to a series of podcasts on the history of Rome (sure it may be boring to you, but I'm finding it very interesting, at least the bits I'm absorbing), curled up in the big desk chair wearing pajamas and my mom's old bathrobe. I love this thing - it's heavy terrycloth, and it used to be on the couch for the longest time. Back when we had a couch in the living room, anyway, and not the top bunk of our old bunk beds. Mom used to use it as a blanket, and the dogs would curl up on it. It's good to snuggle up in. Almost like getting a hug from my mom.

I may go to bed soon. Sure, it's not even 8:30 pm here, but I am exhausted.

I am so exhausted. PMS, you can stop any minute now and let me have my period. You've been harrassing me for almost two weeks now.

I got out of work early today because I was falling asleep at my computer. I'm gonna take a nap in a few minutes.

I might be getting a new laptop, thanks to knowing about the innate workings of Financial Aid. Apparently, you can ask for a budget adjustment for a computer once during your college career. Snowball is having issues, and I want something with a longer battery life and less issues, and Bryan needs something that actually works, so I think I might get one of the new 13 inch MacBook Pros and hand Snowball down to Bryan. I think I might name the new laptop Silibern II, after Bryan's car. (Oh lord how I miss poor Silibern, he must think we abandoned him in Long Island!)

Okay, naptime. Hopefully I'll feel better after a nap. I haven't had a nap since last week.

I am exhausted and I am frustrated.

I am exhausted because I wrote three and a half research papers today - I typed up 6 lesson plans (totaling 10 pages), ran around campus for a little bit, and took the first of my final exams. (Which I'm pretty sure I aced.)

I am frustrated because I was planning on going in to observe next week, for my last day of pre-student teaching. Because of this, I don't have my 100 hour sheet signed, nor do I have my week 14 evaluation filled out. And I'll end up being three hours short. And I have to scan in my evaluation form, so Mrs. Burnett can fill it out, scan it, and send it back to me.


If it's not one thing it's another.

At least I have a job interview tomorrow. I'm going to wear my new blue shirt and hope for the best.

Not awake.

Yesterday was very tiring, and the week is just going to get worse. I have so much to do and so little time to do it in. And I do have the time to go lay down and get another hour of sleep, thanks to not having to drag my ass to Curves by 7 am anymore, but I don't know if that's what I really want to do. Maybe I'll work on gradually waking up.

Allegedly it's supposed to rain today. I don't buy it. The sky is blue, even if it is a little cloudy. It's going to be another beautiful sunny day, and I'll be stuck in the office.

Must go pester Financial Aid today about that job.

I need to learn not to dump everything in front of the closet. I just spent most of Sunday cleaning the last heap up, and now there's another pile. Ugh. I'm trying not to let the wreck that is the rest of the house not creep through and infect the clean places.

Oh, I got the test results from my first teacher certification exam, the LAST. If the damn thing wasn't so long, I would have aced the whole thing. I got a 279, and the highest is 300. The minimum passing score is 220. They showed the score breakdown, and I got a perfect score in the first three sections (even math/science/technology! And they're all my worst subjects!), a 276 in communications and research, and a 220 on the stupid essay they tacked onto the end of a very long test. Bryan did well on his too - he got a 271 on the LAST and I can't remember what on the Social Studies CST, just that it was passing.

Brr. I'm freezing. Maybe I should go get dressed, and try to tame my hair into something that doesn't resemble a horrible case of bedhead.

EDIT: I edited this entry solely so I could use this Minako icon. It amuses me to no end.

Oh lordy lou I am TIRED.

I have too much to do and too little time to do it in. At least I've noticed that even if what I type up for a pre-student teaching assignment sounds like crap to me, it's probably utterly brilliant. The assignments are scored on a scale of 0-3, and I've only gotten one 2.5 - the rest of my assignments have been 3s.

I'm going to paint my nails and listen to Friendly Fires while I crank out this assessment report paper. I got to see maybe three tests all semester - Mrs. Burnett usually gives them on Fridays, and I'm only there on Mondays.

Friendly Fires is good stuff. I found them on accident, through a yooouuutuuube video Bry showed me. (Yooouuutuuube goes and spits out Youtube videos frame by frame, creating some interesting visual effects. The video for Friendly Fires' Skeleton Boy is sweet, stretched out like that.) I have pretty eclectic tastes, and it makes for some interesting situations when putting my iPod on random. XD

Eh, I guess I better get on that assignment. Maybe I'll crank out some Black Jewels fanfic later if I'm feeling up to it, just to write something that's not educational at all. I can't be a teacher all the time.
