back to school and back to work

Today was the first day of classes for spring semester and tomorrow I start my first day of work.

I only have one class this semester and after I finish this class (and pass the PRAXIS) I will be completely done with my masters!  Woo Hoo!  The class this semester is my practicum class so most of the “work” for the class will consist of field experience.  I will have a portfolio due at the end of the semester and a few small assignments throughout but mostly I will just be working in a school library to fulfill my hours.

I’ll also be working part time as a graduate assistant for the library media education department (my professors) this semester.  Tomorrow is my first day and I’m really excited.  I have no idea what types of things I’ll be doing, probably lots of administrative stuff, but I’m looking forward to getting started.

I think it will be a little crazy at first getting used to having to be certain places at certain times – even though I had a super full course load last semester most of it could be done from home whenever I wanted and in my pjs.  Now I’ll have to be at work on certain days and at the school on other days so it’s back to the real world.  I’m sure I’ll fall back into a routine soon enough.

This isn’t a very interesting post, just a little update on what’s happening in my life.  I hope you all have a fantastic week.




  1. I finished my masters in June and it was such an amazing feeling! The last term was the hardest one for me. Good luck!
