You want babies. A whole lotta them. And you'd be
good at it too! Even if you don't want to
admit it, your biological clock is ticking
away, and you've already got the skills for
good parenting material. We probably need more
people like you out there! But keep in mind
that having or wanting a family doesn't mean
having to give up all your dreams and career
goals; you can balance both!

Regarding yesterday's financial meltdown...

Talked to mom and dad and I feel a little better about having the money, although not really better about where it's coming from. It's not something that I have to decide right away, but it looks like one option is for me to take one of the remaining 2-unit classes next semester (Fall 05) and wait to do my student teaching in Spring 06. That way we have more time to get the money together for that lovely 10-unit class, and I can work longer and put away more and also get my credit card bill paid down a bit further. Plus I remember something about how if you work for over a year you get some teeny weeny little bit of company stock. Hey, every bit helps. I still have to check with my advisor to make sure this would be okay, although I can't think of why it wouldn't be. I mean, what if I was an 'adult'/continuing student with a full time job and family besides? I'd have to do the program in little bits like this. In any case, taking some classes should mean I still won't have to stay paying back my student loans.

And I'm not alone in my money troubles... Jamie just left his job, and he has insurance payments to make and a speeding ticket to pay for.

Working 2:15 to 5pm. Not sure what the point of that is, but whatever ;)

Well, a week from now Dad and I will be in D.C. Woo!

Of course, the drawback to that is that I'm only going to have one week to do my Literacy Assessment homework instead of two, and I'll only have a couple days to do my Teaching and Assessment homework for Thursday (which I'm going to miss next week... alas). It's weird... I was only on Christmas vacation for... what... three weeks? And yet it's so hard to get my mind back in 'homework' gear.

In blogland:

- FreeWill: "Driver missing with cargo of 3.6 million nickles."

- Liberal Larry: "4 more jobs lost on Bush's watch."

- Cox & Forkum: What agenda?
