Yup. It's officially week 1 of Spring Quarter.

I'm on the 4th pint of beer. It's 1:11 in the morning. I've finished the two assignments that are due 1st thing in the morning, but not some of the things that I was supposed to have finished last quarter or over spring break. Bah.

I'll be finishing this beer 'n' goin' to bed shortly.

On the bright side, I'm almoooooost done with my U-Neck Vest.

I ran across some of the language arts songs (Based on poems by Poe, one was The Pit and the Pendulum, the other The Flask of Amontillado) and thought that was pretty cool, showed one of them to Chimere today. I searched for "flocabulary" in Google and got their whole website, which is amazing! I'm listening to "MLK Rap" on the social studies section of the site right now, and, well, listen for yourselves.

Here is the main website. I'm bookmarking this one as a resource for sure.

I have [ profile] ceruleanfleur to thank for the link to The Pit and the Pendulum!

Well, except for my faculty evaluation, (quick explanation: Evergreen doesn't do grades, students get evaluations written about them by the faculty, as well as about them by them. This time I'm getting my portfolio reviewed so I can advance to Master's candidacy. Faculty also get evaluations written about them by the students, which I still need to do,) I have all of my work done for the quarter. It feels GOOD.

Today I'm going to go through my yarn stash and move some books around; I'll also get my school paperwork in order so I'm ready for next quarter.

For your amusement, as it was for mine: The Mensa Invitational Works of Literary Genius

Okay, so Andrew's mom calls to give me updates from time to time, and I thought I'd share this one with y'all.
He's getting reading glasses, which he's excited about, and they're trying some new things to help him to not transpose and flip his letters, which is great.
He's doing fantastically well in school, all A's and B's, except for in Missouri history.
You say, well, that's not surprising, he just moved there! At least, that's what I said. His mom said that was only part of it...
An example of the history test:

Test question: Name a contribution made by Europeans to the Indians.

Andrew's answer: Smallpox

Good boy.
I laughed for a solid 15 minutes, told Bill, called Beth, who says "well, it sounds like he knows his Missouri history quite well, actually!"
I'm so proud.
