yolen: (Big Butts!!)
Well, I was one sleepy bitch when I went for my child Development Associate exam yesterday morning. I was running on fumes, post-election joy, and a little caffeine. The reviewer and I had agreed to meet at my local library branch. She was running late, and I had visions at one point of her calling my cell to say she couldn't make it, and of me being simultaneously pissed and relieved. Well, she was just 10 minutes late, so it wasn't bad. She was very nice and friendly, and we had some good chatting about the election results. The test was ridiculously easy. There was a 60 question multiple choice written and a 15 question verbal. Some of the wrong answers had me chuckling, they were so blatantly WRONG. I think I got one written answer wrong, no big deal. After reviewing my portfolio the night before, and making minor corrections and additions, I'd put the portfolio at a B+ level. The only X factors are the parent letters commenting on me, and the observation manual filled out by the teacher in whose class I was volunteering in. I'm pretty sure I'll get my credential, I should know in 4-6 weeks. And if not, eh, not the end of the world. I'd have up to 4 years to try again. That would suck, though! But not the end of the world. Once I get my credential, it will be good for 3 years. I'd have to do a minimum of in service continuing ed hours to renew the credential for another 5 years. I'll be a full-time mom and homemaker for at least those 3 three years (hopefully more if we are blessed with a second child), most likely more, but it will be nice to know I should be able to get a pre-school job once I'm ready to go back to work. Here's hoping my plan works out.

This stupid fucktard is going to take a three hour nap. Here's hoping I don't make a complete and utter disgrace of myself on my written and oral exam, and the review of my portfolio and other supporting documentation. I should have known better than to agree to the test date right after the frigging election.

Because I am an utter and complete DUMBASS, here I am at 4am in the morning going over my Child Development Associate portfolio for my CDA test and review tomorrow. I'm making sure everything I need to have completed is completed. I should have done this oh, SOMETIME OVER THE SUMMER. Definitely sometime in the past week, but the campaign ate my brain. I'm a fucking idiot. I am also running on fumes. My hope is that my portfolio is more than ready and I can go to be soon, and that anything I need to finish can be at least be done by 6am so I can have at least a 3 hour nap before getting ready for the test. I'm hoping I can keep my shit afloat when I meet with the reviewer at 10am. I will be running purely on post-election joy and caffeine. Yup. I'm a SCHMUCK!! And I am so coming home to sleep once it's all over. Hopefully I'll find out by the end of the year if I get my credential, or if I flunked like a moron. We'll see!

I am SO DONE with formal education and tests and shit. DONE.

Yesterday we went to OneCrazyFamily's Annual May Day party! Thank for having us over, we had a very nice time :).

Today I slept in ridiculously late and have accomplished nothing. I really should have done a lot of cleaning. I'm going to kick myself tomorrow, I know it. Oh, well. I'll live.

I have an insane amount of work to do for my CDA class in the next 2 weeks. I have painted myself in a corner, way to go, [personal profile] yolen! Hopefully I get it all done without losing my mind completely. Or driving my husband to drink.

yolen: (Can't Sleep :()
OMG, I went to sleep way too late last night and slept like total shiiiiiiiiit and I have to sit in class from 9am-1pm and then head off for a wedding that starts @ 4pm and then the reception is like, 6-11. I guess I can *try* to nap on the train, but man I'm going to be a sleepy wench today. *Wah*wah*bitch*moan*.

I wish I had dropped these CDA classes after my miscarriage. My motivation went straight to the toilet after that and it hasn't really returned. Oh well.

Just checked my email, and THANK GOODNESS my Saturday classes are CANCELED due to the weather. Apparently, if Friday classes are canceled because of inclement weather, then Saturday classes are automatically canceled. Words cannot begin to express the relief I am feeling right now. I was NOT looking forward to going to class, I was just cursing the fact that I hadn't looked at my homework assignment all week long.

I had a glucose tolerance test today, it made me feel icky and even sleepier than I already was (had to haul my ass to UMDNJ in Newark for the 2nd time this week, whee).  The nurse brutalized my arms trying to get blood samples (thankfully she succeeded before having to whip out the butterfly).  I have a fever now.  I have been feeling crappy all day, both physically and emotionally.  There's crap for my class tomorrow I didn't get to do.  Oh well.  Could be worse.

Way to go! I totally forgot my appt with the professor who's going to help me fix a registration snafu. Good thing she can see me tomorrow. Durr.

yolen: (PrOn 404)
I am working on my final project for class tomorrow. Next week all we're doing is picking up the final project and our grade for the class. I can't fucking wait! Two class meetings that will probably consist of about 15-20 minutes each, tops, to be followed by 5 free Saturdays before next semester. Feels positively luxurious! Next semester we'll be in class from 9am-2pm, a whole hour longer than we had to deal with this semester (it's technically going to be 2 classes, 1 from 9-12:25 and the other from1-1:45. gah) The very thought gives me headache. Ah, well, you gotta do whatcha gotta do.
