Because my goal is to write a journal every month for an update to show that I'm not dead
So school has been pretty busy, or "busy", I should say. I'm like Cactus-Bob
who gets everything done way too early (but she gets things done waaaaay earlier than I do), so I'm usually out of stuff to do. And note to self: it is okay to feel unchallenged. All the education classes we're taking are great and informative, but it's definitely lacking the intellectual aspect (like math where it actually challenges you to think), and that is boring me to death. I honestly canNOT stand how I am not challenged in that way, so I just made a Khan Academy account and do as many math problems I can for fun (yes I just said I'm doing it FOR FUN). Yes I can just play videogames, draw, go on pinterest and all that, but those only (or mainly) use my right brain, and I'd like for my left brain (the analytical side) to be used as well. Both being used gives it a good balance, and I realized that I need
that in my daily life. It's like ordinary people doing sudoku for fun. But personally, I hate sudoku (I really don't like number puzzles....but I like math. I know, that confuses people a lot XD And guess what? That's not my problem
), and I find algebra/geometry/etc much more engaging and fun. It's a good way to prepare for next week too, because that's when me and my peer coach gets to teach a few lessons!
That totally leads me into the actual teaching part. So for the next 6 weeks or so, it's one week of teaching at a high school, one week of going back to college class, and it repeats that 3 times. Terrified to teach in front of class? Yes. Excited? Yes sort of. But more scared and nervous? Absolutely.
(All those eyes gazing at you.) So we'll see how it goes.
And I am almost 1/3 of the way done with my 100 Theme Challenge! I have been doing a very good job drawing every day I have school, and I'm proud of it!
Now Sagojyou is off to do some more fun, casual math on Khan Academy XD They give you badges! When I was in K-12 school, math wasn't this tech-engaged, so lucky you kids get to have fun ways to do math (rather than learning straight from a textbook, which ironically, I kind of like more XD)!
