    I expect "not saying anything stupid to admin and getting self fired pre tenure" to be the hardest part of my job. At least I know this, right?

    It's my birthday but, I'm not doing much beyond getting an ice cream. I'll go to a decent dinner w hubby tomorrow. I just needed a "still" day today.

    Got up early to game today w sleep_twitch, her hubby, and Rainbow Dragon which was a nice start to my day.

    25 arms of steel, and a walk.

                      So yeah. Learning how to study so I can learn how to teach kids who don't/won't just magically grasp everything so I can earn a "free" professional cert by teaching in low income schools...
                      I didn't have to do much studying too, so I never had to learn a study skill. Even though we had a class about study skills, they never discussed anything about study skills, only about planning skills.

                      I discovered how to study in college, and discovered that everyone as a different way that works best. I only remember things from a book if I actively make a summary of every paragraph, otherwise I just ware off with my thoughts and have no clue of what I read. Also discussing with others about it makes me understand it and remember.

                      I think the best teachers in high school were the ones that could explain things in different ways, to match with the different learning styles of the students.

In HS,, I didn't give a shit. I did better in college but I was still a procrastinator who wrote in my journal in class. My mind is always moving so it's hard for me to retain shit.
                          THIS IS ME LOL!!
