Well, I'm home for Spring Break. Yes, I do in fact realize that it's still February, and no, I'm not wrong about which break it is. Now you understand why we force a "Beach Weekend" later in the year :)
I just finished a teaching practicum at a local Greenville high school. A lot of work and a lot of time, but overall enjoyable. I had a great mentor teacher who was wonderful to work with and from whom I learned a ton.
Now, I'm just trying to figure out if I want to teach next year. I've applied to several graduate schools (mostly for Linguistics, but one Spanish program). I was denied acceptance to Georgetown's Linguistics program, but am still waiting to hear from the rest. There's also a very good chance that I could get hired to teach at the same school I worked at this term, which would be neat. I am just praying that God leads me, since I'm totally clueless now about what to do. While they don't admit it, I really think my parents want me to choose the grad school option. Whatever.
So tomorrow I'm going to the Southern Conference On Language Teaching (SCOLT) here in Charlotte with a friend of mine. That ends on Saturday afternoon, and then I don't know what I'll do for the rest of the week. My roomies and I have talked about hitting the beach, but we all have small budgets, so I'm not sure it will work. I'll try to keep you posted!
For now, I'm gonna go remove the stench that is clinging to me from my workout, and then crawl under the down comforter that's on my bed.
Soli Deo Gloria...
