"I began to realize how simple life could be if one had a regular routine to follow with fixed hours, a fixed salary, and very little original thinking to do.

Another day done

I just finished a paper off for my class on Thursday night. Twelve pages long and it feels great to have focused for that long and not taken a break for some "distraction time." Thins are rough around the house and I am looking foreword towards the end of these classes. I'll have about a week off and I'll be back at Beaumont High finishing off some internship hours and my job teaching at Palm Middle School will start again on August 12th. It'll be nice getting back into a routine and letting some time pass.

Taking it one day at a time.

"Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves." ~Dale Carnegie

The long day ahead of me.

The weekend is over and as usual it didn't seem long enough. I didn't get half the things done that I would have liked, but that's life. I'll be continuing to work towards fulfilling my 600 hour internship for graduate school this week, which is not a whole lot of fun. I guess boring would be a more appropriate word to describe it, but it is close to home and they are very nice at Beaumont High. I have alot to get done today and hopefully I'll be able to get most of it done. I usually feel happiest when all my daily work is done. I've been up since around 4:30 AM and even for me that's early. This Summer is really a drag. All work and no fun, I think I'd rather see graduate school just be over, I'm not sure I've learned much, it's more a matter of fulfilling requirements, not actual learning.
