For the past few weeks, I have seen very few things aside from textbooks, Microsoft word documents, and very empty mugs of what should be more coffee, to get me through yet another all-nighter. Granted, I probably wouldn't need so much coffee to get me through the night if I hadn't procrastinated so much the night before. But, let's get real: when it comes down to reading the words "formal assessment" for the hundredth time in one night or browsing what's new in the Facebook newsfeed, I'm pretty sure the choice is a nobrainer...Facebook for the win!
Even despite my fantastic ability to drag my feet on every homework assignment given (can you guess what I'm doing now?!) I really really am enjoying this whole school thing. At first I thought that being in a close-knit 'cohort' with the same people day in and day out would be trying on the nerves, but, as it turns out, it's kind of like being adopted into a new little family- a family of book-reading-paper-writing-geeks, but a family nonetheless. And during class, this week, we have actually had some really great discussions. Discussions that start out like:
- "Is Tumbler-ing a word?"
- "How do you spell Pinterest?"
- "Should I save this image as a JPEG?"
- "Yeahhhh, I saw that on facebook."
- "Where's the closest place to buy a flashdrive?"
Did I mention that we are all Elementary and Special Education majors? Yep. I'm pretty much loving this college thing.
Reason I'm Thankful #1: If my brain ever fails me, my third graders will eagerly jump at the chance to correct my grammar. I'll never have to use a dictionary again! Just yesterday I was told by K that "Funner isn't a real word." and that I "probably shouldn't use it anymore". :) I love them.
