Back to School

School has started back and already it is kicking my poor behind. I have to wake up in the middle of the night to let Sadie out because she isn't quite up to making it through the night without an accident. Then after I mess up my sleeping schedule I get a few more hours of sleep until I need to start getting ready for my 8am class. It would help if parking wasn't so crazy.

Thankfully only two of my classes insisted on doing the dreadful introductions. They wouldn't be so bad if I was on time with my degree but I'm nowhere near. I should be finishing it up but it seems like I'm just starting. First I did just the basics and didn't dare question my advisers on what I should be taking. I had wanted to teach high school English and they told me I need to major in English then. So I took almost every English class there was at my school. Then I changed to elementary because I don't think I could handle the stress of state testing and big high school kids. I loved spending time sitting in on classrooms but I learned something extremely important. I enjoy kids, I love to play with them, bond with them, and talk to them. I don't necessarily want to tell them about math and sentence structure. I realized by wanting to teach I really wanted to decorate a classroom and play with kids.

I'm marrying a pastor and by being a pastor's wife most churches will automatically expect me to fulfill the role of children's minister. If my future is planning VBS and teaching Sunday School and children's church then I don't want to add full time teacher to that list of activities. Instead I like working for my dad and helping out with the family business of finance. So I changed my major and found a good adviser that told me exactly what to take and when to take it. So I hate introducing myself because everyone else it is their first or second year and it is my fourth. I should be done by now, a lot of my former classmates are finishing up already and I'm just starting. It's embarrassing and I despise talking about it. I just want to get my degree and finish without even walking the stage.
