Taking a Year Off

When I graduated from High School everyone had this fantasy about taking a year off. Certainly not a new thing. Some of the people I know did take the next year off from school - you know to find a job or travel or do something else before returning to their studies. Most of them never did go back to school. I can see why. I graduated with my BA last January, and started classes again in September, and it's just so hard getting back to the routine of classes.

I registered for two classes yesterday, started the first one this evening. Its on the History and Philosophy of American Education. The other one on Tuesday nights is on Integrating Technology in the Classroom. As I take these classes it makes me realize how much I really want a nice 9 - 5 job. As much as I want that, I have to keep reminding myself that these classes are hopefully a good way to get that (or in the case of teaching something like an 8 - 3 job).

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
