I wonder why I keep having erotic dreams about inappropriate people. I mean Red Symonds, really?
4 more weeks of uni left, time to decide what to do next year. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a Masters in Teaching for me, but the question is, do I do one more year of Arts first then apply for the masters program as a secondary teacher, majoring in english/history and music? Or do I jump straight into it next year and opt for primary teaching?
Can I really hack bitchy 16 year old girls in my classroom, and loudmothed boys?
On the otherhand, would I be bored and under-stimulated teaching 8 year-olds to spell?
I really love the idea of influencing younger minds, with less competing neuroses and emerging egos, but there seems to be quite a stigma against primary school teachers. I think the expectation is that only those who couldn't get into any other course end up as primary teachers. Why don't younger people deserve well-educated and intelligent teachers though? Would I really be surrounded by vapid and ambitionless colleagues?
I saw the best dining table the other day. It was salmon pink 70's laminex, I LOVED it. So did the antique shop obviously, because it was $900.
Oh, and we got the most amazing deal on tickets to Japan in February! $700 return including all taxes, thanks jetstar!! We're going for 2 weeks to meet Michael's bro and two children, who Michael hasn't even met yet. They're 6 and 4, and sound utterly adorable on the phone. Very excited about seeing a new country as well. Hoping to spend a few days in Tokyo before going down south to meet the fam.
In other news...my essay was due Monday. Better get back to it.
