I need to apologize for my lack of attention to this website. I have been completely enveloped with work, grad school and all of the long hours of reading and homework that come with it. This past week has been our winter break, and all that I have had time to do is read. On Monday I am doing a book talk (basically trying to sell why a group of books are awesome) to a room of high school freshman (at my FORMER high school no less). To prepare for this task I have been reading the first 100 pages (or more, if they are good) of 13 books. I am doing my book talk on novels in verse, so at least I have that on my side! The project has been great, but I have a lot of other work to do for my other 3 classes! I am eager for this to be over with. I am not the best at public speaking,and talking in front of a group of less than enthusiastic freshman is daunting. Oh well, It will be over soon!
I do need to say, grad school has been amazing. I love all of my classes and finally feel interested and anxious for more learning. I am very eager for the semester to wind up though- spring and summer are calling my name!!
You may have noticed that Chris did a surprise post for me last week. That was the best thing that happened all week. That boy can really make me smile!
Anyway, thank you for those who have stuck with me! I leave you today with my abominable snow squashington.
So if anyone has any public speaking experience.. feel free to leave a comment or email me!! I am sure I will be dreading it more and more as Monday approaches!
