DONE!

Praise to the Lord God Almighty!! I am FINISHED with this Spring Quarter!

I took my final final yesterday, felt pretty good about it, and celebrated by eating a cheap cheeseburger with fries and singing a ditty on the karaoke stage.

A lot of you already know, but I have been Stressed with a capital S for the past couple of months. Well, really, since September. I've been teaching full time and racing over to CalStateLA for my education classes (snore), and up to this last quarter it's been reasonably manageable, but this time around I decided to take 4 classes instead of 3, and two of those were toward a Master's degree. I've been reading multiple texts, writing papers and researching like a maniac, all while doing lesson plans for work and trying to stay ahead of my grading.

Thank you thank you to those who always cheered me up, thank you to Ted who made me dinner quite often (and always with such nice presentation!) and thanks to my students who really tried to not drive me TOO crazy.

It's a great feeling!

CONGRATS! I would pay money to see you karaoke on a let-it-all-loose day like that.

Stress is ugly and overrated. And makes you do strange things.

So are you coming up for the summer?
