Time:9:42 pm.
Today was just one of those days where the students were off the walls. I don't know if it's because I'm PMSing or just plain tired but I was so short with them. I know they're excited about the vacation that's coming up, I get that but oy vey.

I know I haven't talked about work that much in here but it's actually because I like where I am. I love the kids and my supervisor is great. It is a lot of work though, but anyways onto today.

Let's start with 3rd period, I push-in(go into the Language Arts class and takeover). I'm covering multiple meaning words vs homophones... a topic that I've been on for 3 weeks.... THEY STILL DON'T GET IT! "Ms. V, is blue and blew a multiple meaning word?" "Oh I know! Color, like color in the picture and I like the color pink, that's a homophone!" AAAAAAGHHHHH... there are some days when they get it and some days when they don't and on days like these I almost lose it.

Move onto 4th period, metaphors and similes. One wise guy decided to start whining. I have a behavioral plan for the group and just whine whine whine....needless to say, he didn't get a check today. Then another girl was sitting there playing with her hair. I feel bad for my professors because I know I must look the same way at them, with this bored whatever look on my face.

5th period, is a group of two boys. They're sweet kids and do the work even though they don't want to be there. Today one comes in and asks me if the other is absent if he can go back to art class....I figured since he;s been coming all the time and we let the other kid go to gym last week I can let him go. My supervisor said no but I had said yes. Needless to say, this kid was a trooper and did my lesson. We were playing a metaphor/simile game and I acted dumb sometimes and he totally knew, but I had to somehow keep him interested. At the end, I gave him candy and apologized for having to keep him and said that I too have to listen to my supervisor.

8th period...Socialization class with the Lifeskills kids. These kids are low-functioning and I love working with them but today they just plain old tried my patience. We're going on a trip tomorrow so I wanted to go over how to behave, what topics to talk about etc... one boy, M. was singing the whole entire lesson. The one girl in the class said the "h" word, so had to give her a lecture on that. Then they had made banana bread last period and it was done baking and they wanted to eat it...at this point, I knew they were gone and weren't going to do the activity so I said fine. They come back and the girl didn't like and goes "EW! I don't like this! I hate it!" Meanwhile, the boy who had made it was sitting right there. Off Ms. V(that's me) goes and gives a lecture on if you don't have anything nice to say don't say it anything at all. Don't think it got through them.... so I decided we're just going to talk. I was developing a headache and I was rubbing my temples when M comes up to me and goes "Ms. V, I know how to make you feel better." Then he starts patting me on the shoulder and wants to whisper in my ear... he whispers "Ms. V, do you like teaching socialization class? I said socialization and not civilization." Then he asked if he could sit with me on the bus tomorrow. When that bell rang I just started laughing....it was one of those days.

Field trip tomorrow, plus a trip to the mall for gifts and then studying. Oy.

Subject:Year in Review
Time:8:33 am.

So every once in a while, I get blue about being single... tonight is one of them.


Update time. I just finished summarizing journal articles so I feel a need to bs for a bit.

I've been in a major funk lately.

Quick update because I need to go back to studying but....

If I hear one more preson tell me how tired I look, I AM GOING TO SCREAM!!

When things crash, they crash.

I miss my sister.


I'm bored and I can't believe I'm saying this

I don't know if I'm sick or if I have allergies. What I do know is that my nosey is running and my eyes are tearing up and I have to move into the dorm in a couple of hours.

Classes are classes, nothing's changed there.

I hate men.

I hate putting myself out there, I just get hurt.

Here's to a better 2006!

So I'm strapped for cash, kinda.

Anyone know where I can sell used CD's and books online? Not ebay or half.com though. Any ideas? If not, I may just end up going into the city Friday afternoon and going to Strand for the books and to a used cd store in Brooklyn.

I have a request for you guys.... I'm looking for new music to work out too. The stuff I have is just not cutting it anymore. Sorry, but hearing about love lost is just not motivating at the gym. What would you recommend? I'm thinking Black Eyed Peas, but who knows.

I think I want to drop grad school. I'm not smart enough. I can't do this anymore. I study and study and study, and then I can't do well on an exam. I'm at my wits ends, I really am. I'm doing lesson plans every night, typing up papers, and attempting to study. I don't get a break. Sometimes, I wonder if I'm in the right field... you're not supposed to wake up every morning dreading going to work, right? That's how I feel...getting up in the mornings is hard for me because I don't want to go there. Don't get me wrong,I love the kids I'm working with.... but I just don't know anymore.

By the way Ari Hest, rocked the 3 songs I saw him for. The show ended up running late and my sister was tired so we had to leave early =(

He is playing a show on Dec 3 as is Jared... decisions decisions. I'm tempted to go see Ari.

I hate men. Well my ex, to be matter of fact. He promised me, PROMISED that he would go to the show with me tonight. "Michelle, I'll be there. Nothing will stop me unless it's a natural disaster or family emergency." He can take those words and shove them where the sun don't shine!!!!! He called on Thursday and bailed because his friend is having a bachelor party and he's in the wedding party and he can't miss this party. Did this bachelor party just come up? I asked him to the show 2 weeks ago. Two freaking weeks and you just remembered 2 days before the show that you have a party to go to? The girl who said she'd go with me isn't calling me back and I'm leaving in an hour. I think my mom said she's going to go with me so that the extra ticket won't go to waste.

There's a reason Jon is called an ex= boyfriend. I told him I don't want to talk to him anymore. He didn't like that. Well buddy, actions speak louder than words and by you constantly cancelling on me, is speaking loud and clear. I don't want to hear the excuses anymore, I'm done.

Now I'm going to go and enjoy Ari Hest.

I think there's a leak in my room. Interesting. Some of my textbooks are wet from the bottom not the top, this is what makes it interesting. Because if the whole book got soaked then the whole thing would get crinkly and not just the bottom. Maybe there's a ghost in my room. I think I'm getting delirous. It's that time of the year, MIDTERMS. YUCK. Add on the fact that I write lesson plans every freaking night and can't study because of it. I'm going to ask her if I can stop writing lesson plans for the next 2 weeks, but maybe I shouldn't.

What I should do is get sleep, yup, Sounds good.

So last night my suitemate, Dominique and I went to see Altarboyz. This was my 2nd time her 1st. We had a blast. Dinner at the Stardust diner, walking around times square drinking jamba juice and of course the show. They added some new things from the 1st time I saw it, I definitely heard more "Jewisms." At the end of the show they threw out a trucker hat and yamulke... I had no idea it was coming and something hit me in the head lol. I got the hat and Dominique got the yamulke. I no longer hang around as much to meet bands and what not....yes, this wasn't a band but I felt like thanking them for the hat, lol. I'm a dork. There's this one guy whom I love. I just want to put him in my pocket and leave. I took a picture with him cause he's just that cute.

Speaking of pictures... here you go.

Reason 3501837502835 why I will NEVER EVER date a Hofstra guy:

I was leaving for dinner with my friend and at the light to get off campus and it's a short light...the car in front of me isn't moving, so I beeped not an obnxious beep but a small little tap. We pull up to another red light and since my windows were down, he rolled down his and started yelling at me... that I was fucking fat and ugly and never to fucking beep at him again. Nice guy, right? I hate Hofstra guys...time to freaking grow up!

Wow ok, I haven't updated this thing in about 20 million years.... so here's a long overdue update to let everyone know I'm alive.

I finished summer session II with a vengance. In my speech pathology in the schools class, while my group was doing its presentation, the professor was falling asleep.... needless to say, we all got A's in that course. Then comes fluency...I got a B. How I got a B, I don't know. I did all the assignments, I was in class, I never skipped or left early(girls would just get up and walk out). I had some difficulty with the final but not so much that I couldn't have gotten an A. Whatever... she's off getting her Ph.D now and I won't work with stutterers, that's all.

The cruise was good. Very relaxing. I did a lot of leisure time reading, which was wonderful. Saw a Jon look alike. That freaked me out a bit.

Adge is doing well. She's at her boyfriends house this week. I think Saturday we're doing some arts and crafts. I'm the least creative person you'll ever meet and I came up with the idea of doing an arts and crafts activity.

Friday night I'm going to a party to see people I haven't seen, probably since I was 17? Definitely interesting as well.

Boys confuse me. One is being completely obnxious towards me and then he calls me saying he hasn't talked to me in awhile and wants to see how I'm doing. Dude, either you like me or you don't. Then boy number 2... yeah you know the ex who wants to see me and I'm the perfect girl for him? Says he's going to call me and we're going to meet up and stupid me, decides to give him another chance and act like a stupid girl waiting for the call. I'm doing everything I said I'd never do. Oh well?

I just found out that Lee is my next door neighbor in the dorm. Josh, yes the jerk I hooked up with lives directly under me. Lee said he's going to come over and stomp on the floor at night to annoy him. Josh still owes me my disc man, so I can't be mean...but then again it's not in my nature to be a bitch. We'll see what this semester may hold. I move in on the 3rd. Dominique's my suitemate, so I'm excited about that.

I'm student teaching this semester, I'm scared about that. ME??? Who in their right mind is going to take me seriously????????

I think there's something wrong.

I have a friend who is dating like 6 guys at once and I just found out that 2 of them are guys that I spoke to last year but we didn't get past a 3rd conversation for some reason or other. One guy told my friend oh yeah she's really smart(me). AGH, what does she have that I don't????

OH, I am major PMSING by the way.

I have been hard core PMSing and people have been annoying me.

Like today, for example... Elina and I were making a pit stop at the dermo(for me) and there was a spot, so I turned on my blinker and started to pull in. All of a sudden, this guy went on reverse and almost hit me and started telling me to move because it's his spot. Hi, I don't see a sign saying reserved for asshole. And I couldn't backup or go forward...backup go into a busy street go forward hit the jerk. AAAGH....eventually I won, but gosh!!!!

Ya. that's it. school is almost finished, 2 more weeks but I have a superivisor that is up my ass. can't take it.

I'm doing a happy dance!! I finished Summer Session I. My professor loooove me... he said I have outstanding leadership skills and because of my skills my group got the highest grade on the presentation, woo hoo!! 93 baby, that's the highest he'll ever give.

Tomorrow I'm getting a hair cut, my nails done and then I'm going into the city to see Jared and Airbourne play... afterwards I'm meeting some girls from school at Park. Should be a fun night indeed.

Saturday, my parents and I are going to visit Adge. She gets to go home for the 4th of July but she's going to Queens to hang out with her bf and his family. It's funny they've been together for 9 months now and I've only talked to him twice. In October,we all went out for dinner and then the last time I saw him was in the hospital back in May.

Sunday, my mom and I are hitting up Chinatown. What will we find? Tacky silver bags probably. Ugh, I hate this trend.

Oh, I just want to give a little rant about my classmates. So they're all telling me that they will never work with me becuase I made me group do a lot of work for the presentation. That really hurt my feelings. I put the work in, so that I can get a good grade. If my group mates had a problem with it, I'm sure they would have said something. I mentioned this to my professor because I'm also doing research with him and he said that once they see my grade they'll want to work with me. I just hate how catty some girls are.

On a happier note.... I really don't know...done with summer session one for now!!
