Observing a 1st grade classroom today. Great to be back in this setting. Much better than the cubical at my real job.

Life update

So, in my last post I talked about my reasons for giving this site another try, now I just want to write about what has happened in the past year or so. This have gotten a lot better since I joined this site. I passed all my CSET tests, applied to Grad school and was accepted. I am now taking classes for my Special Education Teaching Credential. It is A LOT of work, but I am actually enjoying the challenge. I feel like I actually care about something for the first time in a long time. My band is doing well, the usual gripes are still there. Commitment for the other members and things like that, but we are playing show pretty regularly. On the days we get to jam as a full band, it is still a lot of fun. My real job is still kind of a drag, but not as depressing as it used to be. I still can’t wait to leave, but I can handle it for a little while longer. Other than that, I just go to a lot of shows, and listen to a lot of records. Free time isn’t as abundant as it once was, but I’m fine with that. 

Starting Over

I’ve decided to give this site another go. I’m not sure what I’ll use it for, probably just blogging pictures of my vinyl collection, but it’ll be just random stuff for now. Hopefully, I can find an interesting use for this place. Cheers!

This past weekend…

I took my test. I find out my score on the 29th. I feel confident that I passed, but you never know until its official. I’m trying to stay positive and not go to my dark places in my head. I already started studying for the next one and we’ll see where it goes from there. One step at a time, I guess. Either way, I had some good times with my friends in nature and in SD at the Wonder Years show. Those are definitely some good memories.
