I'm feeling crunchy. I'm 2 weeks away from graduation. I'm sitting in a classroom with a handful of 1st years who are FLIPPING OUT over the final...A final which will allow notes AND the textbook. I've got a serious case of angst. I'm talking theory with a man who has no concept of Piaget, Dewey, the basic educational theorists...and a completely (he's admitted) jaded perspective. It's like scripture chase on crack. 15 women between 21 and 55 flipping through pages frantically to answer questions on pedagogy, curriculum, policy, etc...grrr. enough.
All is well. Kids, life, work, school...it's all beautiful - promise. It's just busy. I had a woman call me the other day about student loan consolidation. She went on for 20 minutes asking me questions about this and that...she asked me at the end about providing her with specific amounts from specific lenders...at that point I told her that the timing was less than desirable. I'm in the process of finals, I work full-time, go to school full-time and I'm a single mother of 3. The woman stammered and said, "Wow. You sound so calm." enough. It's all good.
Love you all. Be happy.
